I can't think of a cool way to start this report so I'm just going to say what I feel. This morning was making me a little nervous. I thought that our timing was going to be off this trip. I knew the fish weren't even close to being done for the year but for a couple of days I thought perhaps. I was wrong.
This morning we got our fish on. We were catching plenty. We started with a couple quicky stops and then had one good one. The only deal was the fish were on the small side of things. 12 pounders, few smaller, couple bigger. We were fishing them because at the time, we don't know that we'll find the better grade. What if we drive away and we never find the bigger ones or another one period? Anyways, it dried up and we went looking again. We all got stuffed from lunch and right when we were feeling that it's either nap time or get a pot of coffee brewing we found what we were looking for and we drifted until the day was done.
It was as good as we ever need fishing to be. "One stop shop" if you will. Bent rods all day and constant fish in the pit. The pit is where the fish is dragged back to get spiked, bled, and tagged before going down into refrigeration until the end of the trip. It's the busiest place on the boat during a good bite. We even had a passenger in the pit today helping out when he thought he had his limit. When I told him we were in American waters and California fish limit regulations apply he was back at the rail catching yellowfin. We had a good day.
The weather for the trip is so far so good. We're going to make a move tonight and look for that bluefin we were catching last trip.
My good friend Mr.Joe Beck would like to give a shout out to his special lady friend and wish her a happy birthday. And we from the Polaris Supreme would like to wish you the same thing. We hope you have and had a wonderful birthday. Any friend of Joey's is a friend of ours.
