Good evening everyone. We departed this afternoon on a private family charter with an excited load of kids and adults ready to put their fishing luck to the test. We made a stop at the bait receivers and loaded up on some healthy sardines to bring with us on our journey to the southern fishing grounds. The bait looks good and everybody is ready to put said bait to the test. For now, everyone is in the galley, getting ready to munch on some prime rib, a Polaris Supreme departing night tradition. Our fishing outlook looks good as there are some scores to be had on Bluefin, Yellowfin, Yellowtail, and some Dorado too. As for the weather outlook, it's looking like it will be a little bit windy for tomorrow, but Sunday is looking like it might calm down. We'll see for ourselves tomorrow.
For now, we'll just keep on chugging down to the grounds and with that, we'll chat with you tomorrow evening. Take care.
Some of our lunches on this trip were pork carnitas, with all the toppings and sides, and one day we had chicken marinara with pasta. Food and fishing is excellent! Paul Hess's group has also been excellent.
We will be into the dock tomorrow morning at 6am.Thanks for checking in! Tommy and crew
We had bad odds today. We fished for wahoo and our fish hooked to fish landed ratio was poor. It always is with wahoo but I feel today was extra bad. I think if you're landing half of what you hook with wahoo you're doing OK. Today at best we were 1/3. At best. I called out to 2 of our anglers fishing today and asked what there ratio was for the day and I got a 1/2 and a 1/4. Then my buddy Dave came up to the wheel house and said he was 0/4. So that gives you an idea. If we would've caught half of what we hooked today we would've had a really good day.
Alright. I'm done whining. I'm still glad we came here. Everybody got there chance at a wahoo and there's still a chance for some more tomorrow. We're headed inside now and we'll be fishing for wahoo while we're looking for tuna first thing tomorrow morning. The weather now is fantastic. A little weird this morning with mixed swell and a wind coming from the southwest but it's beautiful now.
We couldn't come to an agreement on a price for someone to wear Mark's shirt today. Justin wanted 200 and Mike said he'd do it for 150 but I couldn't find enough people to chip in. It was a good one too. He was wearing a white shirt today, so by 9:00 this morning he could've entered a wet t-shirt contest. He may have won too if you're into guys like Mark.
17 yellowfin 12 mahi 36 yellowtail. An angry ocean made finding kelps a bit interesting but we were able string a few together. Encouraging sign starting to show up in our zone. A flyline setup with 25-40lb is what we recommend.
Today was our first full day of fishing! We are off to a great start with some great grade Yellowfin!
