Never found the lucky kelp today. Still scratched up a mixed bag in beautiful weather. 18 dorado 27 yellowtail 29 skipjack.
Today was mostly a travel day for us. We did have a nice little surprise in the morning. We had a double jig strike on wahoo. Then we had a couple more singles. Then we had one more single a little later along with a few dorados. When we got to the yellowtail grounds in the afternoon we found mucho wind. It was blowing 25-30 knots right through the grounds we were planning on fishing so we fished elsewhere. We found a little spot with some current before dark and we captured 6 cow yellows, we're talking 30-40 pounders, to go along with lots of 10-12 pounders and some bonito. Action is what we call that. We now have to head north and we'd like to find some dorado tomorrow. It's going to be a bumpy/windy ride up tonight and we hope for it to back off tomorrow for our fishing and ride home.
Good evening sports fans from the bridge of the Supreme. Today was yet another day off shore. We were busy all day long bendo on tuna mostly jumping from bird school to bird school with quite a bit of fish on the machines too. Chapparo's group always brings it every year when it comes to putting in time at the rail, even when Chef Mike nearly puts us to sleep with his thick juicy cheese burgers and homemade fries for lunch. Nobody wimped and took a nap after that big plate of food, we were all right back at it keeping the rods bent. That really sums up the day, exceptional tuna fishing and a tasty half pound rosemary chicken dinner with rice, green beans and stuffing topped with whole gralic cloves followed by bannana foster for dessert. All and all great day, beautiful weather and we hope the weather mans forecast stays true for good weather for the next 2 days. Til tomorrow friends, good night to all, and to all a good night.

Captain Aliyar called in with us today from the Polaris Supreme:
We just got tied up this morning from a 3 Day trip. We finished with 15 Bluefin Tuna. The first day we saw a good sign of fish bit it was hard to get a bite. Yesterday the fish were more scatted and it was tougher fishing. The biggest we landed was a 197 pounder and we had a couple in the 140-150 pound range. We put in the effort to scratch up 15 of them.
We have some spots open in May for some 1.5 Day trips, Call Wednesday in her office at 619-706-3634 or go straight to our website and check out the schedule. We are back out again tonight for a 1.5 Day.
131 Yellowfin Tuna 200 Skipjack Tuna. Bring a 30-50 lb bait rod to fish big sardines and a 20-25 lb bait rod for small sardines.
