We had a great morning today. I'd have to check with the big guy but I believe we had around 60 of the 15-25 pound yellowfin and 9 of those big 60-80 pound bluefins on our first drift. I'd call that a good morning. It wasn't full speed either. It was just a nice scratch over a period of a few hours. Nice drifting along there in beautiful weather once again. I sure hope this weather lasts a while along with the fishing.
After our first drift we did some others of course. None producing as well as the first one but throughout the day we scratched at some more yellowfin and a few more of those big bluefins. It was just what we needed after a day of mostly driving around seing a lot and not catching much. Needless to say we'll be hanging around here tonight and trying it again tomorrow.
On a sad note, one of the greats in the sportfishing industry passed away today. Most of you reading this wouldn't know who I'm talking about because he was a behind the scenes guy. I'm talking about the great sardine fisherman Joe Machado, and if you've been fishing in the last 35+ years, you were using bait most likely caught or found by him. As you all know, no bait no fish, so we'll be throwing some sardines over the side for him tomoorow. RIP Joe.

Hi friends. We arrived back to the docks this morning at 06:30 hours and did our usual offloading procedures. Unloaded Tom and the boys, their gear, their beautiful load of Bluefin and Yellowtail, loaded groceries, cleaned the boat, cleaned the fish holds, refueled, changed oil/fuel filters, the girls made up the bunks with fresh linens and cleaned, freshwater the boat, vaccuum the upper deck/wheelhouse, clean/restock the galley, do the windows, load our new passengers and their gear, and take off for another adventure all within 4 hours of docking. We hustle, we know. We also managed a mass substitution of team members. Riddler, Jed, Shawn, and Dee headed for home and Drew, Matt, Schooler, and Ali relieved the gang from last trip.
With that, we headed to the bait recievers, loaded up on a decent load of sardines, and cleared the point by noon. After Schoolers famous bratwurst lunch, we knocked out our tackle seminar and hung out for a bit until we started fishing around 17:00 hours.
Our fishing was just OK. We managed to land a couple handfuls of Bluefin in the 30 lb. range before the sun settled below the horizon and nightfall ended our day. It was a very picky bite but the quality is what we're likin' the most. We're going to enjoy our traditional first night dinner of prime rib, idle downswell for a calm dinner seating/comfy nights sleep, and hit this again first thing tomorrow morning.
In closing, we're hopeful about the potential for tomorrow. Our weather is a bit sloppy but it's plenty fishable; just a tad bit wet and windy. Anyhow, we're here and we're looking forward to snappin' Bluefin tomorrow morning. Wish us luck.
Your friends until the end,
- The Supreme Team
P.S. Mark would like to say thank you to Mal "Mole" Wagstaff for the clothes. Thanks, Mall.

Arrive depart day today. We did the whole routine, I hung out with my baby for an hour and it was time to set sail again. We left on another 5 day with my buddy Archie and his gang and a few other regulars. We did well at the bait receivers. We loaded up on small sardine and left the bay and headed out to do some fishing in the afternoon. We didn't do much. A couple of yellowfin is all we caught. We did see a couple of big schools of 50-80 pound tuna that didn't care we were there at all. No bites. We're eating prime rib and heading down in nice weather. We're going to try for some yellows on the coast in the morning and then head offshore for the afternoon hunting yellowfin.

Went 1 for 2 on local Yellowtail. Fish are holding tight to the bottom, much like the one's we've been seeing regularly at the Coranado Islands. Our guess is that fish is moving north. This one ate a sardine on the dropper loop. We have Monday open for charter, then some days in July. Come on out and enjoy the fishing.
