Good evening, friends. Awesome day out here on the Supreme. No need to get too wordy about things today, we had a super day. Well, it was more like a super 5-hour drift on 40-60 lb. Bluefin and the rest of the day was spent enjoying beautiful weather. All in all, I consider today to be just terrific and I gave Drew's mustache a high five to show my approval. Y'all should too.
From 10:00 hours until 15:00 hours, we plunked away at that stellar grade of fish and when the dust settled, we had just shy of 100 of those beauties all while enjoying a bronze in flat calm weather. You can't beat that, you can't! It was some of the better action on BFT in recent years and we had some real flurries with at least 10 fish hanging at one time. It was very nice! Everybody had a shot at a few of those bruisers and we're pumped about or day.
We didn't really have time to take a lot of photos because we were so busy. Sorry, Riddler but know that the BFT look exactly like the ones from prior trips and they are chillin' super fresh in the RSW well. Sometimes, you've just got to make a drop.
Anyhow, we're going to do this for one more day and then see about heading to one of our favorite Yellowtail spots on Thursday. Things are really looking up right now and the Yellowtail grounds are no different. Really good fishing on some 'tails right now and we're looking at that with mouths agape. But, we still have some business to attend to with my favorite fish in the ocean, the Bluefin tuna.
Awesome weather, awesome fishing, awesome blossoms. See ya!
GOOD GRADE ! We knew something was different when we had been stopped for 20 minutes with 20+ tuna hooked and we still had not put one on the boat. After a couple hours of drifting and many “zing-pows”. We managed to land 82 (22-30 lb ) yellowfin. We also had a late afternoon skipjack riot for 138 fish.
There are now an even 50 of you on this update list plus 8 of our P.R. guys. Hopefully I will have it figured out so I can also send it from the boat starting next Friday when I get back on. It will be a different email address and going through the Sat phone address, so don't send me large files to the boat. Anyways, lets get at it.
Yesterday only one boat remained in the hot area in some pretty crappy weather, and to his credit he kicked the heck out of the bluefin and yellowfin. Equal scores of limits for each. Drew will be there early afternoon. The weather is beautiful again. And as we know these tunas REALLY want to bite when the weather lays down. I'll send you out an update when I talk to him this afternoon. Hope you're having a fun Sunday.
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
