May 23, 2024 van wormer resorts Fishing Report

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Hi friends. We arrived this morning from our Garry Roberts 9-day trip, wheeled up their gear and fish up to the top of the docks, and got down to business on our turnaround chores. When all was said and done, Robin Gledhill and the Blue/White group was on the boat and we shoved off the docks en route to the receivers. Our bait loading went well and we'll monitor the health of our sardines throughout the trip.

For dinner this evening, instead of prime rib (thank you!) Robin brought us some fresh halibut to play with and Chef Shawn prepared it wonderfully. The wine was flowing too. I had Robin give me a list of the wine that was passed around from table to table and I was going to write about it but there are too many big, fancy words for me to type out. All I can say is that there were plenty of dry, light wines to not overpower the fish, but to accent the flakey, white fish. Perfect. I didn't have any. Sad face.

Anyhow, we'll report back to you tomorrow. Hopefully the fishing is great, the seas are flat, and the sunshine burns us all like lobsters.

-The Supreme Team

P.S. I'd like to give a shout out to the lady and gentlemen at Fisherman's Landing for completing my request of breaking seventy dollars with ten seven dollar bills. They are the bomb and they are my friends.

Also, we'd like to give a shout out to our thumb-sized calico bass, Charlie, that Jed and myself released today in the bay. We've taught him the way and he's been through a lot: transit from San Diego Bay, to Alijos Rocks, and back and he also experienced his first USCG helicopter rescue. He's a G and we wish him well.

P.S.S. Those of you waiting for the pictures of last trip, due to technical difficulties they wont be up till we arrive from this trip on Thursday.

40+ bluefin onboard so far for Capt. Matt and the boys. These bluefin are averaging 40 pounds and are very catchable on 30 lb. come prepared with different line sizes from 20-40 lb. hooks from #4-2/0. Match your Flourocarbon size to your mainline size. Listen to the crew, even if you have been fishing since before they were born.

Polaris Supreme Update 9/24-25/2011

Good morning friends and trusty followers. We arrived at the docks this morning right ontime at 7 o'clock. The crew has been hard at it since 5 o'clock pulling out our healthy catch of mixed tuna, limits of yellows, limits of dorado and a few other colorful bottom fish. The anglers were up not much after us to start bringing up the gear from their staterooms and enjoy a continental breakfast on the way in. It was quite enjoyable to spend a few minutes in there with them and bid farewells till next year. All in all, listening to the guys chat, everyone sounds like their expxectations were met and exceeded. All of you friends and families reading this better be ready for some really fun stories! We appoligize about not checking in yesterday with you. The crew got up nice and early to start on our chores to prepare for our arrival and to make sure that all of the guys had a very relaxing travel day back home. I can tell you that there is more than and handful of them flat out need some rest. Sore arms and achey fingers prevailed on this last day. But I guess that's how it goes when you're pulling on fish for a week straight. It was a pleasure to take a break in between working and talk with everyone and reflect back on the last 7 days on the water and share some fun stories from the trip. It sounds like once again the Polaris Supreme crew : Captain Drew, Jed, Justin, Joey, Mark, Chef David and his awesome galley assistant Jaime aimed to please and succeeded. If it meant keeping the lines tight or serving up and A+ cuisine, we got it done. I'll give it 2 thumbs up from the bridge for this whole 8 day trip!!

As we speak, the results are in from the scales. Jackpot results are in: 1st Place winner is Mr. Paul Briscoe with a 34.6 lb Yellowtail, 2nd Place goes to Henry Proo with a 27.2 lb Yellowtail, and 3rd Place goes to Dave Miera with a 27 lb Yellowfin Tuna. Congratiulations guys! Way to go!

Polaris Supreme Update 9-23-2011

Hello friends and happy Friday! We hope that all of your work weeks went as great as ours did. If so, I know one thing is for sure, I bet you didn't have as much fun as we did! Being out here on an epic 8-day fishing trip on the Polaris Supreme and calling it work is nearly impossible. As we brought this one to a close, we had most of a day to cruise up the coast and get some lines in the water before we had to officially call it a ball-game. Those who wanted to tag just a few more ended up getting rewarded for hanging in there. With the fish holds already stuffed with beautiful tuna, yellowtail, and dorado we had a day to kind of mess around fishing for fish we don't normally target. The best stop of the day was a wide open bite on lunker calico bass that we let almost all go to live the life calico's do along with some better than keeper sized white sea bass! Glenn Briscoe capturing 2 himself, way to go Glenn! We also caught a few handfuls of big yellows that we set free as well. The guys who decided to sit the afternoon out just sat around and enjoyed watching their buddies tug on their final few fish while sipping on some cold beverages. Drew finally had to call it around 3 o'clock so we could start making way towards San Diego. Tomorrow is an all day travel day with the last of the gear break-down and a nice list of deck chores for the crew. Let's hope the weather prevails for us on the ride up. It's been pretty nice for us almost all trip so hopefully we can squeeze one more day out, especially for Chef Schooler so he can work his magic in the galley for the always tasty surf and turf.

Tonight on the Polaris Supreme menu, the passengers were so kind as to donate some yellowfin tuna for some awesome sesame seed crusted seared ahi. Tuna doesn't get any fresher than having it out here 24 hours after bringing it over the rail. I can't wait. Well, I'm going to sign off til tomorrow gang. Check back in tomorrow afternoon for our ETA or you can always call the office as well to find out when we hit the dock so you can come meet us and check out our amazing catch. Til then, time to go start enjoying your weekend!

Polaris Supreme Update 9-22-2011

Another pleasurable day today aboard the Polaris Supreme wouldn't you know. We spent the first half looking for a wahoo once again coming up dry. The rest of the day was spent on anchor. I love anchor fishing. Bow in the wind, engines off and the captain on deck. Yellowfin tuna was on the menu. Good scratch fishing today. Steady most of the time with a few lulls. And wouldn't you know it, we even threw some Bluefin tuna on deck today too. Plenty of dorado and yellowtail to pull on also but we were letting them all go because we have plenty of those in refrigeration already. With the fish holds plugged and the last one ready we head up the line for a day of D, all of the above. We're going to try for every thing from wahoo to sea bass tomorrow. Who knows what the day will bring. I'll let you know tomorrow though. Talk to you then. We'll see ya!

Polaris Supreme Update 9-21-2011

You know when you walk into the galley at 11 in the morning and see 8 passengers sitting down drinking a beer that fishing is either slow or very good. In our case today it was because fishing was great. We woke up this morning and brushed our teeth, had a cup of coffee, then put the jigs in the water, in that order. Seconds later the jigs got bit and it was game on. A couple hours later we were done fishing dorado. A beautiful grade of dorado it was. 15 to 20 pounds with a few bigger in the school. A half hour later we put the anchor down on another spot and again it was game on. A couple hours later we were done fishing yellowtail. A good grade of yellowtail it was as well. 16 to 18 pounds with a few bigger ones. We then took a break and enjoyed a lovely lunch. After that we went on a quest to find wahoo and grouper coming up unsuccessfully. Beautifully weather today if you like it hot and I do with the perfect breeze to keep you from overheating.

We're heading up the line now to try it tonight on anchor for grouper, Pargo or whatever else will bite the lines and will try for tuna tomorrow. Wish us luck.

Polaris Supreme Update 9-21-2011

Not much to report today. We started our morning out at the Rocks and didn't see much sign. A handfull of tuna and a handfull of yellowtail. We got out of there mid morning and went kelping the rest of the day. From two oclock on we were in pristine warm lively water. Clouds and clouds of flyers around and we got the feeling that with a boomer kelp, we'd get down to business. Unfortunately all we saw were small kelps. We're going to head inside tonight and try for some action on all of the above. It's time to go eat some babyback ribs and hit the rack.

Polaris Supreme Update 9-19-2011

Hello everyone. Not a huge report today. We got to the yellowtail grounds just before sunrise. As the sun cracked, so did the bite. It was anywhere from steady pickings to full speed for an hour and a half. Then, like a light switch, it shut off. For just having a few hours to soak some baits at those grounds, we got what we wanted. Time to continue south once again to 8-day range and start looking for wahoo, fatter tuna and maybe a kelp with some dorado. Time for me to turn in and get some zzzzzzz's for tomorrow's action. See ya tommorow!!

Polaris Supreme Update 9-18-2011

Hello everyone. So here we are at the end of our first "travel" day on the Polaris Supreme. Wait a minute, why did I just call it a travel day if we fished all day? I"ll tell you, because we had an awesome score of yellowfin tuna "traveling" right over the rail and into our 30 degree RSW holds all day long! It looked like 5 minutes after 6 in the AM was breakfast time for the tuna down here. They wasted no time getting our blood pumping and adrenaline flowing as the clickers went screaming. The morning continued with no breaks with the crew eating breakfast on deck wihle they were always on the run. Easily piecing together a late morning, it was now time to shut down on the boomer of the day. You could have called it what you wanted, a buffet at sea with all you can eat, or simply a Wal-Mart Superstore: one-stop shopping. I thing you get the point; if an angler wanted to get rid of some tags, it was game on. To add some color to the afternoon, a couple nice kelps were so generous as to hand over about 30 or so 14-28 lb flatheads (dorado to the non-fisherman). So, for the most part that was the program today. Right around the pre-dinner hours Drew got her pointed in a southerly direction for some o'dark 30 "cow" yellowtail fishing. Wish us luck on our start to day 2.

From the galley for the evening, Chef Schooler served up his famous shimp and scallop seafood pasta which is always a crowd favorite. It's a sure sleeper after a hard day of fishing! Before i go for the evening I would like to let all of you that just can't quite get enough time off of work to ride one of our long-range trips, we have something JUST for you! Tommy and Susan were so gracious as to work some 1.5 and 2 day trips right in the middle of our summer schedule. Come join us out here and fish a short-range trip in long range luxury! The yellowfin are snapping and the dodo's have officially moved into 1.5 and 2 day range! Call Susan at the office : (619) 390-7890 for all of the details. Hope to see you out here.

Til tomorrow,

Jed and The Supreme Crew

Hi friends. Absolutely gorgeous weather out here today; it couldn't be beat. It was flat calm, it was windless, it was sunny. We liked it. We're currently en route to the bait/Yellowtail grounds and our ride is motionless. Chef Schooler and Chef Shawn our downstairs kicking out Scallop/Shrimp Alfredo and strawberry milkshakes and root beer floats for dessert. We like that too. Anyhow, here is our day went.

The Mustache put us on one school in the mid-morning and we had a really nice go-around on some 25-40 pounders but as soon as they came, they vanished. No rhyme or reason why but they did. We had a few "filler stops" on smaller grade Bluefin and also some school-sized Yellowfin tuna as well but it wasn't enough to keep us from calling it a slow day. It wasn't for lack of effort and wasn't because of lack of fish, by the way. We saw multiple breezers of Bluefin today but they didn't react or if they did, they gave us the slip. Very frustrating to say the least. But, we managed to put a few on the boat before we began our descent to do some inshore activities.

So that is all. We'll be into the zone at 0400 hours and we'll be trying for some carnada. Wish us luck and we'll hit y'all up tomorrow. Happy Hump Day, y'all.

Normal turn around today. Nothing crazy happened. It was hot hot hot. The bluefin were bigger then we thought. The small one went 139.something and the biggest one went 146. Pigs. Or cows rather. We'd like to do the same this trip. We left on the annual Robin Gledhill Blue White private charter with captain Tommy Rothery at the helm. After getting bait and some lunch it was nap time for most. Me included. It was nice With a shower and a cup of coffee right after makes me feel like a million bucks. We did the seminar and had a lovely prime rib dinner. I skipped it and cooked up some of the escolar passenger John caught last trip and was too scared to keep. They're not the prettiest fish and after hearing rumors of what happens when you eat too much of it in one sitting he said no way was he keeping it. So i tried it tonight. I had it for dinner. Tommy won't let me say what happens on here so I'll just say that it's a very oily fish and you should be able to figure it out. I'll let you know tomorrow John. The weather out here is smooth and we should experience some more in the near future.

~~Aug 23
 We drifted most of the morning until around 9 or so.  We drifted due to us catching fish.  We caught a whole lot of fish this morning.  They weren't the same 20-25+ pounders we've been getting.  There were a few of those, but these were about half that size.  It wasn't what we were hoping for but they were still fun.  The guys were having a blast.  They were getting some practice at the whole tuna fishing thing, picking a good bait, where to drop in, follow your fish... And they got to use some of there tags as well.

 After that we thought it would be a great idea to make a few hour run and get to San Clemente Island to catch those big yellows we caught there a couple of trips ago.  In theory it sounded great, but we didn't catch very many yellows.  We ended up bailing on it and looking for some bluefin that's been hanging around there.  We saw one pretty good spot around there but they wouldn't bite.  At dark we ended where we'll start tomorrow.  Some boats had some pretty good days here today on a very good grade of yellowfin along with some of that 25-50 pound bluefin as well.  Oh how I hope we can get in on some of that tomorrow.
Time will tell.  Cross your fingers at home. We'll take some good luck anywhere we can.
