April 22, 2024 echo lake Fishing Report

Captain Ryan Bostian checked in this evening with an update from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. Today we had 23 passengers catch 27 California Yellowtail, 55 Barracuda and 1 bonito. Very good mixed bag fishing. This is a good opportunity to fish on an uncrowded boat and also enjoy good fishing.

Tom Rothery docked his Polaris Supreme July 18 after an eight-day trip with 16 anglers aboard. His group found some good fishing at Alijos Rocks and Alijos Bank.
"Yesterday we had good fishing on wahoo in the morning," he wrote Sunday July 15, "and excellent fishing on tuna in the afternoon. The average weight on the tuna ranged from 45 to 70 pounds. Our weather is still good. Chef Tommy put out some great meals again. Lunch yesterday was yellowtail served over fresh spinach, surrounded by black beans with a spicy avocado cilantro sauce. And dinner was Cornish game hens topped with a spicy apricot sauce on wild rice with grilled asparagus on the side.
"Fishing this morning has started off again with wahoo biting and this afternoon we will fish the tuna again. We still have some open spots on Sept. 8th an 8-day trip, if you want to come get some of these wahoo. Give Susan a call at 619-390-7890."
Boat builder Harold Davis fished on the trip. "It was a great group," said Harold, "and we had four guys who had been skippers on the Bongos boats in Newport Beach. The whole group was good fishermen; we didn't have many tangles or much shoulder bumping. We had excellent food, too, like prime rib, rack of lamb, Ahi steaks with wasabi. My best fish was a yellowfin tuna, but I got some wahoo on bombs; purple bombs."
Zander Rodriguez of Loveland, CO made his first long range trip with the group. Zander is entering the University of Colorado this fall as a baseball pitcher, at age 18. He also plays golf. He had the second-best yellowtail at 44.2 pounds, a wahoo, and also got a white seabass on the 13 Spot.
Skipper Rothery weighed the best fish on the certified scales at Fisherman's Landing. Daniel McCaffery of Norco won first place for a 60.8-pound yellowfin tuna. He said he fished a sardine on a 2/0 Super Mutu hook. He used 40-pound Big Game line on a TLD 20 reel and a seven-foot glass Calstar rod.

Bob Wolfson of Dana Point was second, for a 56.4-pound tuna, and Harold Davis, the boat builder from Morro Bay, won third place for his 52.4-pound Alijos yellowfin tuna.

 Thank goodness for slow speed.  Even though we got a really good jump yesterday, we weren't going to be getting anywhere down below till late tomorrow.  Our speed was horrible.  1.5 knots below average.  But we sped up this morning.  Yup.  This morning we were only making .75 knots below average.  That all costs a whole lot of time when you're traveling great distances so we decided we'd have to be stopping short.  So that's what we did this afternoon, arriving at 4:30.

 Wow!  It didn't take long before everyone had a tuna on.  And they weren't those 8-14 pounders either.  There were some of those, but the majority of them were those 20-30 pounders.  I say again, "wow".  It bit steady the whole time we which is a couple of hours.  During the stop, I had tied a few hooks and cast a few baits out, you know , like we do, and quite a few times the hook would fall off and I would scratch my head and ask myself, " are my knots failing"?  They weren't.  It took crew member Justin to spot a wahoo flying out of the water to figure it out.

 So we wound them in and threw back the marauders.  Before dark, which wasn't long, we had a little binger for 5 and then one for 1 50 pounder.  Say it with me now.  "Wow"!  We aren't going anywhere tonight.  We'l just kick back and see what the day has to offer.

 My buddy Glen caught the 50 pound wahoo today.  Every year for a while now he has been the last member of the little troll team that I like to call, " the troll of shame"  That's the last few people on board who have not yet caught a wahoo.  He will not be joining that team this year.  Nope.  This year he can join the heckling party.  He get's to see what it's like from the other side.  Way to go Glen.

 Well today went as expected.  We woke up on the anchor after a lovely nights sleep and shortly after daylight we started scratching tuna.  It didn't take long to meet our quota.  Some already had it and were dropper looping for yellows and getting a few.  Anyways a little after 7 we pulled anchor and trolled around for wahoo.  One  more than half the boat caught a wahoo by lunch time and we took off for Alijos Rocks.  We traveled the rest of the day while we looked for something floating with dorado under it but we never found anything as expected.

 So like I said, we'll be at the stones in the morning.  We're going to try for some more wahoo before starting north to finish off our trip.  You never really can have enough wahoo.  There is 2 or 3 passengers left on board who have not caught a wahoo so we're going to make sure they get one before anyone else tomorrow.  We call it the troll of shame and Glenn, if you're reading at home, I always think of you when we do this.

July 28th, 2010 Good evening to all.

Today was our final day of our SoCal Tuna Club 5 day trip and there was only one thing on our minds...Albacore. As of now, Albacore are still on our minds because we didn't quite connect with what we had hoped for. We had a few stops throughout the day that made our day not all for lost, but overall it was a slow day. Everyone in the zone were concentrated on a tiny little area with the hopes that the late afternoon float would be grand. The float, or lack there of, was definitely not grand.

Although we did see a couple massive schools of Albacore late in the day, we never saw the whites of their eyes. No boils, no hookups, no go. Encouraging to see such a nice volume of fish but discouraging to not get any response whatsoever. Scores for the day varied and we were smack dab right in the middle. Let my clarify, it wasn't like some guys clobbered them and some guys didn't. It was a slow day of fishing for all the boats down here and the numbers weren't so great. Needless to say, we feel very fortunate to have caught what we caught. At dark, we called it a trip and began heading for the barn. The best bite of the day was in the galley for sure. Our traditional final night feast of filet and lobster dinner was enjoyed by all. Our thanks goes out to our fine passengers today for always being on call to throw a bait in the water and keeping a good attitude towards the day. We'll be arriving tomorrow morning around 7:00 am to unload, refuel, resupply, reload and do it all over again with Tom Chaparro and the Stern Hogs. Thanks for checking in. Have a pleasant evening. Richie and the gang.

July 27th, 2010 Howdy gang.

Today's day from the offshore grounds was nothing to write home about but we're going to do it anyways. The numbers weren't the greatest but we sure did see a lot of life in the area. Birds picking on the bait from the surface and Bluefin tuna attacking from the bottom. We saw tons of fish and only managed to capture a handful. If this stuff decides to get on the bite, it's going to be a lot of fun for us. For now, we'll just keep our fingers crossed until then. We'll be finishing off our trip on the hunt for Albacore for our last day. Our weather is improving as we speak and we're currently enjoying a nice ride. Wishing you all the best and hopefully you're doing the same for us. Richie and the fine crew of the Polaris Supreme. July 26th, 2010 Good evening friends. Here's a rundown of our adventures to "Yellowtail Land" for the 25th / 26th of July. We arrived to our first destination just after dinner and began the dropper loop assault. Well, it wasn't quite an assault, but we did manage 7 quality yellowtail between 25-30 lbs. The gang fished hard throughout the night but sleep ultimately was needed, so we made the decision to bust a move and start off elsewhere in the morning. The morning time brought us cloud cover and breeze. Not bad by any means, but it was a little cold for my liking. Anyways, what was not cold was the fishing we enjoyed for the next few hours. Steady drift fishing for yellowtail in the 14-20 lb. range and that was before we decided to drop anchor. After we came tight on the anchor, it was GAME ON! Now I know you might be asking "Richie. What was the preferred method of fishing for these fish?" Well, today it was having a live bait or a jig with a hook on the end of it. Pretty simple. They bit very, very well and just to top off a stellar morning of fishing, the skies were sunny and the seas were flat calm. Awesome. After Chef Schooler kicked out his signature Carnitas Taco Plate with all the fixin's, we pulled anchor, gave up our spot to our fellow code boat, and boogie'd out of the area to focus solely on tuna fishing for the next couple of days. Now our plan is to go and catch lots of albacore and lots of bluefin. We'll be sticking to the plan, but it's all up to the tuna to make it happen. Currently, our weather is a little choppy but it's nothing we can't handle. Wish us luck and stay tuned. Richie and the members of TEAM SUPREME. P.S. Drew says hi mom. July 25th Sunday Of shore fishing just isn't working out south of the border lately. Weather was good and catching was bad untill dark when we slid into the island for a little night bite on 25 to 30 lb Yellowtail. It was just a taste of what we are hoping for tomorrow. Our Southern California Tuna Club Anglers got to bed around 11:00 pm and we are off to set up for the morning. The local boys scratched up a afternoon after what was a brutally slow morning of albacore fishing up north. We are hoping that is on the up swing for the end of our trip. Good luck tomorrow and find me some fish. Good night and thanks for tuning in. Tommy and Crew. July 24th Saturday Off we go on a 5 day Trip. Our Charter head Dr. Al Hermer has put together a Limited load group of only 20 anglers for this adventure. As the end of the day approached we received news of one boat with over 100 Albacore and 4 others in the 60s. With the inconsistency in the bite we decided to head for the yellow tail grounds first. The weather is a little choppy but our ride is good heading down as our anglers dine on prime rib. Tomorrow will be a off shore day. We have a nice load of bait and are looking forward to putting it to good use. Thanks Tommy and crew
