Polaris Supreme Trip Update From Oct. 24th To Nov. 1 2012
Oh boy, where to begin? We're finally back on line here today. Our satellite connection way down where we fished doesn't work so until now we couldn't use the phone or send out our daily fish reports. But we're back on line. One week ago today we arrived at the Shamada Seamount just before or after lunch I can't remember, and it didn't take long before we saw a school of the bigguns right where we expected to see them so we didn't waste anytime and threw the anchor over right away, put out the kites and commenced fishing. No cows for us that day but we scratched at some big ones off and on till dark and that was that. No night bites while we were down here but it did start biting in the dark just before sunrise the next couple mornings and thats when we would catch our cows.
Throughout the next few days fishing was off and on depending on the time of day. When it was slow we would pull the anchor and troll for wahoo while dragging the kites behind us skipping rubber flying fish (yum yums) on top of the water. Pretty cool watching the bigguns hit these things. Usually they would miss the first few times but they keep trying until eventually they're hooked. When we weren't pulling on those we were jigging up steady wahoo strikes. When we would see the school of cows again we'd stop and fish them on anchor.
The biggest problem we had was keeping people fishing. When you have a charter with only 10 people it's hard to keep people at the rail so you don't know when the fish are biting because nobody's fishing. They're all chilling with a cocktail, beer and cigar in hands jamming to ipods hanging out. The weather was rough the first day down there and then the wind backed off and it got nice the rest of the trip fishing. We're now traveling home in o.k. weather. It's a little windy but it's a nice ride. We'll gladly take it.
Though we only had a few over 200, most everyone on board got there personal best and lots and lots of wahoo! And that's how I, Drew, remember it. Now I see what kind of editing and additions I get from Tommy. If anything is spelled wrong he wrote it.
Thats About it. Its pretty difficult to play catch up after 8 days. Tommy.
P.S. Don't worry Lon I Got's Plenty of rubber Flyers.
Slow morning, strong afternoon was how the fishing went down today. We had 2 fish by lunch time and I was feeling the pressure. Thankfully at noon the sonar went boom boom and we went sideways for a few hours. Let me try and give you a picture of how things looked out here. The fishing was wide open on a mixed school of skipjack and yellowfin. We had 23 passengers and basically 23 rent rods. Chaos out here on the Polaris Supreme. And by chaos I mean fun, fun, fun. At any given time we had half the passengers with fish on while the other half were tying on hooks. It was pretty funny looking at 12 people at a time in the center of the boat tying on hooks. Usually our customers have 10+ rods with hooks on them ready to go but all our anglers had one.
Here is how I describe stand up tuna fishing. It's not like freshwater angling. Freshwater angling is more like an art. It can be very peaceful and relaxing. You use light tackle and finesse. With stand up tuna fishing, we can hook 24 fish at one time with every fish swimming a different direction with every crew member screaming out directions. Gaffs are flying, reels are screaming and lines are snapping and it's some of the funnest $%^& in the world. That's what today made me want to write. We had a good time.
We're on our way in already and we leave again tomorrow for 8 days. See you then.
