Good evening everyone. We wrapped up our trip today. And it was an interesting day. First off the weather continued to produce variable wind. Flat calm and gorgeous. Onto the fishing. As you know we almost had no sardine today. We used it well though for the time we had it. The bluefin floated today. Everywhere you looked there was a 30-50 pound bluefin gently rolling on the glassy surface. Other times you would see the whole school swimming on the surface. It definitely had that feel to it. We caught 30 fish from 30-50 pounds this morning before we ran out of bait. For the time being it was great but sad when we ran out. We still had a couple tanks of big mackerel to use and Tommy had it figured out where we would use it. So we made a few hour move and it didn't take long after we arrived to the honey hole before we were gettinum. Big yellowfin. 45-65 pounders. It felt like we were anchored up at Alijos Rocks when the tuna were around there. Those fish liked our mackerel. We caught a few over 20 of those bad boys before they quit biting. I wish we could be in 2 spots at once.
So we have a 1.5 day trip leaving tomorrow afternoon Aug. 27 and we want you to go. Let me try and talk you into it. Now this is me speaking truth. Not blowing smoke at you. The weather still is fore casted to be great great. Variable wind. Now I told you we had great fishing this morning while we had bait. A lot of the boats that had just left on there trips that had bait all day drifted all day. Not all but a lot. They drifted and they caught. It's a good time to go fishing I'd say. Good grade, good fishing. Let us take you fishing, feed you great, show you a good time and hopefully the bonus, catch lots of fish.

Good evening friends. We arrived back from John and Ed's family 3-day trip this morning at 0600 and were back out to sea around 1030 hours embarking on our 11th annual Paul Hess 5-day adventure. Paul has brought his usual cast of renegades along with some Polaris Supreme first-timers. We're missing a few of the familiar faces but we'll see you all next year and we'll dedicate this trip towards y'all. Anyhow, the reports are sounding promising a little further south for the fish that get my blood pumping like no other, the Bluefin tuna. So we're motoring on down there and we'll be in the zone sometime in the morning and as for the weather, it's very fair right now and we're liking it.
So that is all. We'll be giving it a go for some tuna fish tomorrow and we'll base our decision for day two when the sun settles below the horizon. We're all a happy bunch. The passengers are well fed and sleepy and with our new subscription to SiriusXM radio, we're a happy crew. Things are just peachy and we'll hit you up tomorrow.
P.S. Special thanks goes to Dave and Sandra. Thank you for the cookies. Drew and I left the passengers with roughly a dozen and the seventy-nine that we ate before dinner were especially delicious. Dave: I miss your hot-white boots and Sandra, I miss identifying birds with you. We'll see you next year.
July 28th, 2010 Good evening to all.
Today was our final day of our SoCal Tuna Club 5 day trip and there was only one thing on our minds...Albacore. As of now, Albacore are still on our minds because we didn't quite connect with what we had hoped for. We had a few stops throughout the day that made our day not all for lost, but overall it was a slow day. Everyone in the zone were concentrated on a tiny little area with the hopes that the late afternoon float would be grand. The float, or lack there of, was definitely not grand.
Although we did see a couple massive schools of Albacore late in the day, we never saw the whites of their eyes. No boils, no hookups, no go. Encouraging to see such a nice volume of fish but discouraging to not get any response whatsoever. Scores for the day varied and we were smack dab right in the middle. Let my clarify, it wasn't like some guys clobbered them and some guys didn't. It was a slow day of fishing for all the boats down here and the numbers weren't so great. Needless to say, we feel very fortunate to have caught what we caught. At dark, we called it a trip and began heading for the barn. The best bite of the day was in the galley for sure. Our traditional final night feast of filet and lobster dinner was enjoyed by all. Our thanks goes out to our fine passengers today for always being on call to throw a bait in the water and keeping a good attitude towards the day. We'll be arriving tomorrow morning around 7:00 am to unload, refuel, resupply, reload and do it all over again with Tom Chaparro and the Stern Hogs. Thanks for checking in. Have a pleasant evening. Richie and the gang.
July 27th, 2010 Howdy gang.
Today's day from the offshore grounds was nothing to write home about but we're going to do it anyways. The numbers weren't the greatest but we sure did see a lot of life in the area. Birds picking on the bait from the surface and Bluefin tuna attacking from the bottom. We saw tons of fish and only managed to capture a handful. If this stuff decides to get on the bite, it's going to be a lot of fun for us. For now, we'll just keep our fingers crossed until then. We'll be finishing off our trip on the hunt for Albacore for our last day. Our weather is improving as we speak and we're currently enjoying a nice ride. Wishing you all the best and hopefully you're doing the same for us. Richie and the fine crew of the Polaris Supreme. July 26th, 2010 Good evening friends. Here's a rundown of our adventures to "Yellowtail Land" for the 25th / 26th of July. We arrived to our first destination just after dinner and began the dropper loop assault. Well, it wasn't quite an assault, but we did manage 7 quality yellowtail between 25-30 lbs. The gang fished hard throughout the night but sleep ultimately was needed, so we made the decision to bust a move and start off elsewhere in the morning. The morning time brought us cloud cover and breeze. Not bad by any means, but it was a little cold for my liking. Anyways, what was not cold was the fishing we enjoyed for the next few hours. Steady drift fishing for yellowtail in the 14-20 lb. range and that was before we decided to drop anchor. After we came tight on the anchor, it was GAME ON! Now I know you might be asking "Richie. What was the preferred method of fishing for these fish?" Well, today it was having a live bait or a jig with a hook on the end of it. Pretty simple. They bit very, very well and just to top off a stellar morning of fishing, the skies were sunny and the seas were flat calm. Awesome. After Chef Schooler kicked out his signature Carnitas Taco Plate with all the fixin's, we pulled anchor, gave up our spot to our fellow code boat, and boogie'd out of the area to focus solely on tuna fishing for the next couple of days. Now our plan is to go and catch lots of albacore and lots of bluefin. We'll be sticking to the plan, but it's all up to the tuna to make it happen. Currently, our weather is a little choppy but it's nothing we can't handle. Wish us luck and stay tuned. Richie and the members of TEAM SUPREME. P.S. Drew says hi mom. July 25th Sunday Of shore fishing just isn't working out south of the border lately. Weather was good and catching was bad untill dark when we slid into the island for a little night bite on 25 to 30 lb Yellowtail. It was just a taste of what we are hoping for tomorrow. Our Southern California Tuna Club Anglers got to bed around 11:00 pm and we are off to set up for the morning. The local boys scratched up a afternoon after what was a brutally slow morning of albacore fishing up north. We are hoping that is on the up swing for the end of our trip. Good luck tomorrow and find me some fish. Good night and thanks for tuning in. Tommy and Crew. July 24th Saturday Off we go on a 5 day Trip. Our Charter head Dr. Al Hermer has put together a Limited load group of only 20 anglers for this adventure. As the end of the day approached we received news of one boat with over 100 Albacore and 4 others in the 60s. With the inconsistency in the bite we decided to head for the yellow tail grounds first. The weather is a little choppy but our ride is good heading down as our anglers dine on prime rib. Tomorrow will be a off shore day. We have a nice load of bait and are looking forward to putting it to good use. Thanks Tommy and crew
