151 yellowfin 7 skipjack. Nice weather, steady action, and lots of laughs. Please remember that fishing is supposed to be fun. Egos are best left at the dock.
The guys are out at the islands with just 11 anglers this morning. They have 30+ yellowtail so far with lots of fishing time left. Capt Matt suggests a 20 or 25 lb bait rod a 40 lb yo-yo rod and your favorite jigstick and bass rod.
Not to much to report from the Polaris Supreme today. We did a tiny bit of fishing this morning. We were seeing little dabs of yellowfin where we were and the boats below us were seeing the same thing. Just a little bit of fish scattered around and stops for not much so we wound in the jigs and put the blinders up and traveled down the rest of the day. We did our wahoo seminar mid morning and after that it was a leisure day. Some slept, some made wire leaders and some just kicked back and enjoyed the lovely weather. Man oh man was it nice out today. Flat calm seas, super light breeze and warm. August must be coming to an end and we welcome that. What a cold windy month for us out here. Our speed has been poor and it's looking like we won't be arriving to our destination until after lunch.

Good evening, friends. One more day. Just one more day of boatwork and we will be setting sail on our first voyage of the 2012 season. Today was a successful day as the revamped air conditioning unit was finally completed and she's running quite smooth if I must say so myself. Other than loading some dry groceries and other supplies, we did some more cleaning and organizing and I can honestly say that tomorrow everything will be clean and stowed away. For now, we're all enjoying our last couple of days with our families and living the "land life" but at the same time, we're all anxiously awaiting a shot at some of those gorgeous Bluefin tuna, Yellowtail and anything else that we can locate.
So that's all that is going on with us. Just putting the finishing touches on our boatwork and transforming the boat into a fishing machine. Thanks for checking in.
I told myself yesterday that if we caught 30 wahoo today it would be worth the move. We caught 31. Scoooore!
It was good in the morning. By 10:00 we were moving right along on pace to have one heck of a day. Then things went slow. We were able to scratch just enough, and with the expectancy of an evening hit, we still were feeling good. That hit never happened. One here and two there was the rest of our day. But like I said, I'm very pleased with what we caught. It was definitely worth the ride. It helps that every wahoo we caught this trip is a toad. 40-50+ pounds baby.
We're headed up now. We'll have to be making headway toward home for the rest of the trip. We only have a couple of days left. We're going to give it a shot and finding a dorado kelp in the morning. The 3 boats that tried it prior to us struck out so we'll have a back up plan. Our plan B is to fish yellows at an island tomorrow afternoon. See you tomorrow.
