Good evening everyone, we're back!!!! After 2 months of grueling boat work we are back on the water and couldn't be happier. What's new with the crew? Not much with most of the guys. Jed got his captains license. That's big news. And I had a beautiful baby daughter in April. That's big news too. Mark's the same enjoyable goofball, Gunny's the same fish hunting fellow. Schoolers still dishing out tasty meals and Gringo is back helping him out. We also have some new crew members joining the supreme team this year.
We departed this evening on a 1 1/2 day trip. We are pleased with the bait we got because we lucked out and got a tank of sardine to go with a couple tanks of usable anchovy if need be. Hopefully it will be because we run out of sardine with all the fish we catch. The reports are fishy. There's yellowfin and bluefin and yellowtail to catch if you find the right schools that want to bite and those are the schools we'll be looking for all day long tomorrow. Weather reports are calling for some wind tomorrow but they downsized there forecast from this morning so hopefully it won't be too bad. Time will tell.
Right now we're wrapping up our prime rib dinner and will be going to bed soon so we're all rested up for our big day tomorrow. Sweet dreams and goodnight.
Another good day for us today. Most of the first half of the day was spent traveling. We did some trolling and stuff and stopped on a kelp and took advantage of the mackerel we got. There was a ton of tiny yellowtail and small tuna on it but as soon as I talked everyone into using mackerel we started getting bigger tuna and some dorado. Shortly there after we found a school of those cow bluefin but all we got out of it was a couple boils. No bites. We looked around for a while after that only catching tuna that we wouldn't put a tag on because they were too small. Then out of the blue we had a problem with the boat that made us need to be drifting to take care of it so our friends on the Spirit Of Adventure were getting ready to leave a drift to make it to new grounds by morning time so we took it over. Perfect timing too. We needed to stop so why not stop on fish. That's what we did and they snapped for us until dark. The issue was taken care of and we're now drifting and will stay that way until sunrise tomorrow. The weather was good today. Compared to the last 5 days it was windy and rolly as hell but we've been spoiled the last 5 days. It's normal good weather now.
Polaris Supreme update 08-15-2012
Our day started off today in flat calm weather and high hopes that we were going to score big. We worked our water break way out to the north west away from where we have been catching most of our fish. About 20 miles away I thought "What the heck am I doing? What if they start getting them?" We made a sweeping turn out to the west and immediately found our first small paddy of the day. We were immediately rewarded with a frenzied bite of mixed yellowfin, bluefin, dorado and small yellowtail which were released. When the dust had cleared we had about 35 mixed fish. And back up to the wheelhouse and mast we all went to find another one. After about a half hour of searching and lunch time approaching , we hadn't found another one. And then of course, my worst nightmare occurred. Signs of the fish starting to bite 20 miles back where I left from. This is one of those times you wish you had a button you could push just once a trip to put you somewhere instantly.
Of course you'd probably want to push it again and go back where you
just were once you got there. That's probably why they don't make such
a devise. That and the lack of technology to do so. Anyway, off we went two hours south. Back to where we started our morning. As we arrived it turns out that only one boat had really caught much of anything and he was definitely one of those lucky guys. He had had a phenomenal day on that small grade yellowfin and bluefin. As the passengers began to break down their gear and we headed north, our day went from slow to the insane. We spent the rest of the hours until heading for home late, in a wide open bite for small yellowfin and bluefin. With the odd big yellowtail, 18 pounds or more and dorado, 15 pounds thrown in. Talk about carrying around a horseshoe and waiting until the last minute to use it. It was a fantastic topper to Eric Rogger's 28th ? or 30th long range charter with me. And also a befitting ending to Alex Crandall's last hurrah before he heads off to Afghanistan. Alex it was awesome to have you and your dad on board to spend time together. Thanks for sharing that time with us on board the
Polaris Supreme. Thanks Paula for letting them go. We will be
heading up the line and into San Diego a couple hours late tomorrow.
Somewhere around 8:00 am or so. We will report tomorrow on the jackpot fish and give you a trip wrap up.
Thanks for tuning in,
Tommy and the awesome crew of the Polaris Supreme
There really isn't much to report today.. We didn't fish. We traveled all day. We chose to fish later last night in the windless lee of Cedros catching yellows, tuna, and seabass instead of going offshore in the wind/swell and most likely catching nothing or small tuna. I think we made the right choice. We had a bit of a bumpy ride last night, or so I'm told. As usual I slept through it. We were almost to the coast when I woke up for my watch, so things were a lot smoother. So today we slept in and had a late breakfast of biscuits and gravy. The crew got our scrub on while the customers read, hung out and played poker. After lunch, on cue, most of the boat took a nice nap. Now dinner is at it's end and my watch is almost over and I'm ready for bed.
We'll be arriving tomorrow at 6:00 in the morning. We should have a fairly quick turn around and we'll be back out again, this time for 4. I'll be taking her out and I'm not sure where we'll go yet. Fishing right now is at that stage where things need to and will change very soon. We just hope we're in the right place when they do.
Incredible sunsets are just another day on the office. Not much traffic on the commute either.
