Good evening everyone and happy Halloween. Things didn't fair too well for us this morning at last weekends hot tuna spot. You can tell it was a week closer to November because there were only 4 of us there compared to 15 of us there last week. Anyways, like I said, things didn't fair too well for us there. That doesn't mean the tuna weren't there though. At least one of the boats there did well today. We didn't have the patience for it today though. At least not for the veal grade, so we took off at lunch time. We took off in search of dorado. And wouldn't you know it, things worked out. We found three productive kelps this afternoon. The last kelp almost being a fixer upper. So it worked out. We had a good day. 130+ fish day. That'll do.
So we'll be in for the week, and we're going to come back out here again next Friday. We're going to bring along with us the Inside Sportfishing crew. They want to do an episode so if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we'd love to have you. And then after that we leave on a 10 day. So if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we loved to have you then as well.
Dear Polaris Supreme Anglers,
I hope this letter finds all of you well. As summer fast approaches we have gotten final Guadalupe questions answered. And below I have done my best to try to convey them all to you.
Not all trips will go to Guadalupe. Last year there was already excellent fishing at Guadalupe mid July. In a normal water temperature year like we have now, we start to see Guadalupe produce good yellowfin by mid August. So mid July, mid August is the time slot we may start fishing Guadalupe. Your guess is probably as good as mine. But we do know if the yellowfin do show, they will be there in full force by September and October. Either way we want to be to be prepared for any scenario.
Passports, Visas, Mexican Permits, and Guadalupe Permits (one bracelet for each day of fishing at Guadalupe) will be required by all passengers on all trips four days and longer from July 18th on that may go to Guadalupe. This is a Homeland Security US and Mexico Customs and Immigration requirement to go to Guadalupe Island.
I realize the logistics seem very complex, but all you, as a passenger will need to acquire, will be a passport. We will acquire all other documents.
The decision to go to Guadalupe will be made four to five days prior to departure. This will give us time to prepare our forms, and notify our customs brokers, (Us and Mexican), Department of Homeland Security, Customs, Immigration, Agriculture, and Coast Guard.
We need your passport information now!
Our decision to go to Guadalupe will be made on the basis of whether there is good fishing or not at the Island, weather, input from charter heads and passengers as to their desire to go. The Captain and owner will make the final decision based on the above-mentioned and any other issues that may come up.
A typical route on a five-day trip would be as follows:
Day 0 – Board 9:00am * Depart Landing11:00am * Depart Bait Receivers 1:00 pm
It is 60 miles from San Diego to Ensenada * Arrive Ensenada 7:00 pm *
Two hours to clear * Depart Ensenada 9:00 pm
Day 1 – Fish day light until dark off shore for albacore, bluefin, and yellowtail on
kelps. It is 182 miles from Ensenada to the North end of Guadalupe and 196
miles to the south end. 217 miles from San Diego to north end of Guadalupe.
237 miles to south end.
Day 2 – Fish Guadalupe daylight and on into the night for yellowtail and tuna.
Day 3 – Fish Guadalupe until dark. You could also go back off shore at the end of the
Previous day to fish albacore, bluefin, and yellowtail on kelps this day.
Day 4 – Fish off shore for albacore, bluefin, and yellowtail on kelps. We must be within
60 miles of Ensenada by 4 pm to be into Ensenada by 10 pm to clear out of
Mexico. Depart Ensenada midnight.
Day 5 – Arrive San Diego customs 6:00 am. One hour to clear. Arrive back to the
dock 7:30 am.
The typical scenario for a four-day trip would be one day less at Guadalupe. If indeed the Island was the main destination. The time involved to target Guadalupe on four and five day trips will not allow us to have time to fish Cedros or Benitos. Six or seven day trips will.
This is the longest expected clearing times. We are hoping to keep Ensenada down to one hour and San Diego down to a half hour. There is no scheduled check in into Guadalupe, but we expect to be inspected by Conapesca and/or the Mexican Navy.
Only on trips going to Guadalupe requiring clearance there will be a clearance fee of approximately $3260.00 divided up amongst the passengers on board. This will cover the cost we will be required to pay in and out of San Diego and Ensenada for customs, Immigration and Agriculture. Other cost will include the following
Cost 5-Day: (carrying 24 people)
Mexican Fishing Permit $ 87.00 (cost incurred on all trips to Mexico)
Mexican Visa $25.00
Daily Guadalupe Bracelet $ 5.00 (per day) times 3= $15
Clearance Fee $135.00
Approximate total $257.00
Our bait dying in Ensenada Harbor has been a question brought up and will not be an issue. Ensenada Harbor is very clean, if not cleaner than San Diego Bay in the summer when there is no runoff. It is also cooler than San Diego Bay and chance of red tide is slim in both bays this year with no El Nino.
Thank you all for your patronage. If you have any questions or concerns please call me or Susan at the Polaris Supreme office. 619-390-7890
Unfortunate the weather made it very difficult to work yesterday but we did manage to get in a couple good opportunities. It the morning we got on a school of bluefin tuna right way and where able to drift for a few hours keeping multiple fish hooked. In the afternoon we found a new area of yellowfin tuna that looked very encouraging and we got a couple good chances at those as well. The weather is forecasted to be good for the next week so hopefully we can continue to get on them !!
Trip update 08.09.2015
Good afternoon folks. Today was pretty slow today, fishing wise. We certainly covered a lot of ground today looking for that boomer kelp and just couldn't find the cherry patty. Not too long after the crack of dawn we were dragging jigs and had the crew up top looking hard. There was no shortage of stuff to stop on, there just wasn't that one holding in our zone today. Such is offshore fishing. Fish being who they are, the really hold you to being in the right place at the right time. Never the less, today still put us in position for a couple days of yellowtail fishing with another great chance of putting some tags on some nicer grade yellowfin too. I have to say though, you couldn't have asked for better weather out on the water today. For most of the day whether you were going up swell, down swell or in the trough, you really couldn't which was which. Gorgeous conditions out here for the passengers on a boat ride or the crew up top looking for fish. We'll take that for the rest of the trip!
Chef Mike and kicked out an awesome lunch today making his homemade crab bisque served with a chicken ceasar and garlic bread. The only bad part is he didn't make more of it. I know I had at least 3 bowls of it myself. It seemed to be a crowd favorite. We ended the day with a nice Thanksgiving style turkey dinner topped with a mushroom gravy and stuffing on the side.
So tomorrow we're gonna be "chasin some tails". Looking to get into some quality yellows, maybe some nicer yellowfin and who knows what else we might come across. Check back in tomorrow evening.
