Hi friends. We arrived back to the docks this morning at 06:30 hours and did our usual offloading procedures. Unloaded Tom and the boys, their gear, their beautiful load of Bluefin and Yellowtail, loaded groceries, cleaned the boat, cleaned the fish holds, refueled, changed oil/fuel filters, the girls made up the bunks with fresh linens and cleaned, freshwater the boat, vaccuum the upper deck/wheelhouse, clean/restock the galley, do the windows, load our new passengers and their gear, and take off for another adventure all within 4 hours of docking. We hustle, we know. We also managed a mass substitution of team members. Riddler, Jed, Shawn, and Dee headed for home and Drew, Matt, Schooler, and Ali relieved the gang from last trip.
With that, we headed to the bait recievers, loaded up on a decent load of sardines, and cleared the point by noon. After Schoolers famous bratwurst lunch, we knocked out our tackle seminar and hung out for a bit until we started fishing around 17:00 hours.
Our fishing was just OK. We managed to land a couple handfuls of Bluefin in the 30 lb. range before the sun settled below the horizon and nightfall ended our day. It was a very picky bite but the quality is what we're likin' the most. We're going to enjoy our traditional first night dinner of prime rib, idle downswell for a calm dinner seating/comfy nights sleep, and hit this again first thing tomorrow morning.
In closing, we're hopeful about the potential for tomorrow. Our weather is a bit sloppy but it's plenty fishable; just a tad bit wet and windy. Anyhow, we're here and we're looking forward to snappin' Bluefin tomorrow morning. Wish us luck.
Your friends until the end,
- The Supreme Team
P.S. Mark would like to say thank you to Mal "Mole" Wagstaff for the clothes. Thanks, Mall.
We missed again this morning folks. I'm not very happy about it, but I've excepted it. We've definitely put in our work this trip. Not necessarily physically these last couple days but mentally for sure. I am drained. We didn't want to spend another afternoon like we spent yesterday so we left the grounds and fished the Coronado Islands this afternoon. We didn't see much yellowtail. Myself or the other long range boat here. I heard some good analogies this trip by other captains on the radio that I'd like to share. Looking at the fish reports is like watching sports center. They keep showing you all the top tens, but they almost never show the other Joe's, and sometimes you're the bug, and sometimes you're the windshield. Most guys the last couple days have been the bugs.
There have been quite a few firsts for me lately. First of all I've never spent this much time fishing this close to home other than my 3/4 day days.. I have never been anchored up right outside the harbor on the second night of the trip. We were there catching bait. I've never captained the boat to San Clemente or the Coronado Islands. There's probably more. Oh yeah, I've never seen the 5 freeway from the boat. Mark thought it was a bird school. In his defense, I had to give it a double take too.
So that's it. We're going home and we'll be leaving for 5 tomorrow. Tommy is coming back out so he'll be deciding where to go. I'll tell you though, it's tough to pass on this fish. Unfortunately for us, it's the best grade of tuna around. It's great for the 1/2 day boats though.
