Hi friends and happy Columbus Day. For the morning time up until around 1300 hours this afternoon, we sure felt like Columbus. The on-going search for a kelp paddy was getting to the point where I felt that we were going to sail right off the map and into oblivion. Between myself and our mast-men, we searched high and low with the one other boat in the upper area until our eyes were beginning to bleed and our faces burnt by the wind. By morning's end, our tally was a Bluefin tuna and four Yellowtail, ouch. I wish that I could type that we made some crazy move to left field and got on something spectacular to end our day but that just wouldn't be truthful. Well, half of that sentence is true.

We owe our day to our long-range brother, code group affiliate, and good friend, Roy Rose on the Royal Polaris. The "RP" was coming up the line from Cedros Island and really wasn't looking to do any type of fishing as they were just wrapping up an 11-day trip. But Roy is a very cool cat and when Roy's not fishing, he's fishing. Bottom-line, he was more than willing to help us out, drag some jigs, and scan the horizon for signs of life for a few hours as a lower area check. At around 1300 hours, Roy called us up and informed us that he had a couple blind jig strikes on Yellowfin, a couple bait-fish, and he also saw a very nice kelp paddy that he stopped on and --as he put it-- was"corroded" with Yellowtail. Being only a couple hours from his position, we kicked the tires and lit the fires down to his position where he graciously marked this beauty of a kelp for us and he was one-hundred percent correct; this kelp was LOADED with Yellowtail. We made three drifts on the kelp, got all we needed and began the search for tuna, which was unsuccessful, but our day was salvaged thanks to our good friends on the RP. My point is, that it's good to know good people, and Roy is one of the best and we owe him greatly. Although Roy is one of the nicest guys around, any one of our long-range brethren would've done the same for us as we would for them. Helping out each other is what makes the long-range fleet one of the finest teams you'll find and today was a perfect example of teamwork and sacrifice. Thanks Roy.

With that, we're making our way up the line in a little bit of weather. Fifteen knots of wind (weatherman was bad. Bad weatherman!) and a mild sea is bumping us up and down a little bit, but it could be a lot worse. We'll take this weather we have now as long as it doesn't build. We'll be back to the docks sometime tomorrow in the mid-morning time and we'll be returning on Saturday afternoon for Joe Giglioti's 8-day trip. If you can swing it, there are still a couple of spots available and Joe will be bringing some goodies from Accurate Reels to give away to our ultra limited-load of anglers. Give Susan a call at 619 390 1958. Until then, we'll chat with later. Take care.

Really wanted to bite today. Limits for passengers and crew, then we released them for an hour. Yes, we actually had to let Bluefin go.

Hi friends. Just a real dandy of a day for us today. We started it out in the morning with the yellowtail snap and then we followed it up in the afternoon with Monday night footballs. The footballs were all you wanted and we also added a small handful of dorado to our days count. We did all of this in flat calm conditions and the boys are all wore out from the excellent fishing that we had today. Everybody's pumped and I screamed myself hoarse today.

For tomorrow, we're looking for tuna with a little more size as one of our code boats had a nice afternoon on those premium grade offshore yellowfin tuna so we'll be in the area looking around for a few ourselves. The boys enjoyed a twenty-two year old Cabernet sauvigon tonight and I think Robin and Wayne might have shed a tear together while talking about it. I still haven't had any but the dudes looked pretty glossy-eyed so I imagine it was pretty darn good.

Anyhow, the Blue/White gang is having a super duper fantastic time catching fish, drinking cocktails/wine, and eating Chef Shawn's culinary creations. Our weather forecast is looking good for tomorrow so hopefully we can get on a big ole' school of big yellowfin. Wish us luck.

Hi friends. We arrived to the tuna grounds this morning a little after breakfast and with boats already broadcasting catches of Bluefin for the morning, we made our way out to the deck with heightened sense of excitement. Immediately upon entering the area, we had a couple of hits on the smaller grade Bluefins before a lull set in for most of the late morning all the way up until after lunch when we managed to find a few schools and had some action for the remainder of our day before we had to call it a trip around 1600. Throughout the day, Yellowfin tuna jig-strikes kept us awake and we also caught a few mixed in with the Bluefin schools. We ended our day with a respectable score but a few lucky boats managed to find a lucky school and ended up having a good day on the smaller short-fins. The potential is here for future ventures down this way and we also saw one spot of the bigger models so this area has us our full attention and we're looking forward to getting back down here as boats who remained in the area are reporting catching fish all the way up until dark.

With that, we put a bow on Eric Rogger's five day trip and are currently traveling up the line in beautiful, flat calm seas. Our ETA is 0700 hours tomorrow morning and we'll be returning back out for Ron Heil's five day trip. We'll report with you tomorrow. Take care.

Hi friends. We slid into our destination first thing this morning and immediately sent the bait-catchers down to snag some Mackerel and snag some Mackerel we did. The Mackerel proved very useful today as we had a very good morning on the premium-sized Yellowtail. We also hooked a decent amount the stock grade fish in the 15-22 lb. range but all in all we had nice mix of the 25-35 pounders to go along with the stock grade fish. After a couple Halibut drifts, we made our way back to the Yellowtail area and finished up our day with a nice bite and with that, we ride off into the sunset.

As for our next destination, we're busting a move to an area of fish up the line and this particular place is called "what we've been waiting for". Numerous boats are reporting very good afternoon scores on Bluefin with a handful of Yellowfin tuna to add some color. The Bluefin are a mixed up grade and it sounds like the range of those fish are small all the way up to 60+ pounders with some Yellowfin in the 15-25 lb. class. It was hard to get a true report from the guys as most of them were in long drifts with multiple fish hooked up and the captains had to remain on deck to deal with the melee. The cliff-note reports were all we needed to hear and we left the Yellowtail biting to get up there and have a chance at the tuna we've been desperately seeking all season. The setup is prime, we feel it's our time, and we're screaming up the line. We're out. We'll report with you tomorrow afternoon. Wish us luck.

Good evening Polaris Supreme subscribers. Our expedition for kelp paddies was a great success today. I don't throw the term "super duper" around lightly, but we had ourselves a super duper day. It wasn't find-a-glory-kelp-and-be-done-with-your-day type fishing but more of find-a-bunch-of-kelps-and-piece-together-a-solid-day type fishing. Our only tuna situation found us looking at a breezer of Skipjack and we only tagged a handful of Dorado but our Yellowtail count was mess of numbers on the fish count board when all was said and done. The size of the 'tails ranged from 1-8 lb. "shakers", which were all released, and a healthy 14-18 lb. grade with a handful of 20 lbers in the mix. It was never wide open but we stayed busy throughout the day all they way into dusk. What was more impressive to me was the abundance of kelps and the size of the kelps. There were some real beauties out there and the beautiful sunny, light swell/wind conditions made for prime glassing and we never went more than twenty minutes or so without finding a kelp. All in all, awesome day. We're stoked and we'll be making a move throughout the night to hunt exclusively for trophy-sized Yellowtail, White Seabass, and maybe a Halibut drift or two will be on the agenda.

So that is all. Good times with good people and wish us luck tomorrow on our hunt for some cow Yellowtail. Have a great night.

Hi friends. Picking up from the previous report's update, we slid into the Yellowtail Island in the late afternoon and did some scouting around before we located the 'tails and with a flurry, they hit us hard and like a light-switch, they shut off. What gives? The grade of fish was beautiful with most of the fish being in the 16-22 lb. range. We did some more poking around the Island and around sunset time, we found another spot that bit all the way into dark and we finished up our day with bent rods. To sum up the day, it was fantastic. A couple hour drift on our Yellowtail/Dorado kelp in the morning was a great warm-up and when the Island bite was complete, we made the decision to go check out a new area for tomorrow. The new area is a kelp-paddy zone where Yellowtail, Dorado, and Yellowfin tuna have been caught and the weather forecast looks good for tomorrow. We'll be motoring hard throughout the night and we'll be there when the sun comes up.

In closing, our weather conditions were prime all day and along with the fishing we enjoyed today, we're hoping for a repeat on Monday. Eric Rogger's crew is sound asleep and anticipating a full day of fun tomorrow. Let's hope that the fish/weather don't disappoint. Wish us luck.

Before we sign off, I'd like to let you know that we have a couple of trips that warrant mentioning. Garry Roberts 9-day trip departing Aug. 25th and returning Sept. 3rd has a couple of openings available. In years past, this trip has been notorious for stellar fishing at Alijos Rocks/The Ridge and it's also one of the first trips to make a good score on the Wahoo. Garry is one cool cat and if you'd like to join him, give Susan a call at (619) 390-7890. Also, Joe Gigliotti's Accurate sponsored 8-day trip leaving Oct. 15th returning Oct. 23rd also has space available. Prime time Fall fishing with a limited load of 20 anglers. Can't get much better than that. Do yourself a favor and give Susan a jingle ASAP.

12:45 August 7th Morning update

We were late on getting the report out this morning and before I send this out, I just wanted to inform y'all that this morning, we stumbled upon a glory kelp on our journey. We picked up a few boxes full of 12-20 lb. Yellowtail and 8-12 lb. Dorado. It was darn good fishing for a couple of hours for a 50/50 mix of flats to jacks,and once it dried up, we continued to make way towards Yellowtail Paradise. We'll be there in the early evening time, that is if we don't find another glory kelp. More to report this evening. See ya.

Good evening everyone. Today we disembarked on Eric Rogger's five-day fishing adventure along with Eric's closest friends. After topping off our sardine supply, we began our southerly trek down to the fishing grounds while Chef Barry served up some king-sized cheeseburgers with all the fixin's. The rest of the day was spent rigging, napping, and with the completion of our tackle seminar, our day was complete and we're hitting the racks to rest up for tomorrow's activities.

Our game-plan for tomorrow is to do some scouting around as we keep on-course to our next destination, which if all goes according to plan, won't happen because we found some offshore species to stall our progress towards the Yellowtail grounds. The Yellowtail grounds kicked out some pretty good scores in a different area today and we'll be giving it a check tomorrow. Like I said, hopefully we arrive there late because we stumbled upon a loaded kelp, loaded porpoise, or any other types of offshore-pelagic species. Our weather is great and we'll report with you tomorrow.

Hello everyone, The conditions for these Yellowtail are improving. It was a dramatic improvement today, the wind switched back to more westerly and the fish seemed happier with the change. We started our day picking at these Yellows until late morning. We then headed offshore to look for Tuna. Late in the day we found a nice foamer of Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna. We caught a few, both on the surface lures and the live bait with a torpedo sinker rig. We are hoping this tuna gets with it here soon. Will report again tomorrow, Team Supreme
