I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to start this report. Well, the bottom line is the cows gave us the slip today. We got hosed. The 20-60 pounders were there though. They weren't shy to nestle up under and around the boat. They were a little shy to bite though. We ended up with a few over 1 per rod on the tuna today. More than half those were 40-60 pounds and the rest were 20 pounders. Like I said, there were no lack of those fish. This afternoon we couldn't be sitting any better. The fish were under, around, and the school was right behind us where our lines were going, then at 3:30, poof, they disappeared. And the cows never showed. We looked around the bank for awhile after but there wasn't a scale around anymore. So we left and we're not coming back.
The weather today was fantastic so we can't blame it on that. Oh well. At least we still caught some nice tuna and made jackpot easy to figure out. We're going to try and catch some bait tonight and fish for all of the above tomorrow.
Good evening and thank you for reading the Polaris Supreme. If your reading for the boats e.t.a., the boat will be at fisherman's landing at 6 a.m. In fishing news, we had a good day. 160 mixed fish is what we tagged today. Yft, bft, yt, and dorados. In Latin spelled for the most part incorrectly because this is off the top of my head it goes Thunas Albacares, Thunas Thynis, Sariola Dorsalis and Coryphahene Hipperus. The weather was great. The only bad thing was our bait. I'm sure we missed out on a lot more tuna due to the lack of live bait in the water. The yellows and dorado didn't seem to care so much but we saw a lot more tuna in the water then what we caught which was 66. Myself and the fleet is ready for this bait nausea do be over with but until then, we just have to deal with it. So if your coming on a future 1 1/2 day, make sure you bring some jigs. Swim baits and mega baits work well on the slide and the yo-yo iron works good while we drift.
Stay classy San Diego and wherever you may be.
We started our day today offshore tuna fishing. We were staying pretty steady jiggin em up. Onesie twosie for a few hours. We weren't seeing any volume though. Just handfuls of fish around here and there. No schools. The fish were also on the smaller side of things. We could've made a day out of it and ended up with a decent catch but the fish were on the smaller side of things. 8-12 pound yellowfin tuna and that's just not what we were looking for. So we decided to wind in the jigs and v line it down to the yellowtail grounds with the hopes of a sea bass mixed in.
The yellowtail grounds were very poor. There were two of us looking around there and we had a combined score of 0. Mr. Pfleger did get a white sea bass so we were stoked. Fish tacos in a couple days.
The weather today was fantastic and the forecast shows good weather for the rest of the week too so that's always good news. We're going to stick with the plan and go look for White Sea Bass tomorrow in some White Sea Bassy water. The ribs are smelling good so I gotta go.
The bluefin fishing has stayed consistent. Everyday we get a few legitimate chances to catch this beautiful grade of fish. Along with the bluefin tuna we have been seeing good sign of yellowfin tuna as well. We have yet to get them to bite but it’s any day now they could get with !
