Had a PM 1/2 day and fished locally.
Steady stop and go action with an end of the day finale. Our 30 anglers managed limits of bluefin and 12 yellowfin.
After 6 months of fishing in the deep end it was nice to shut the main engines off and enjoy the world famous Coronado Islands. I have always felt that it takes 3 days or 3 really good boats to give the islands a proper check. Today was day one of putting the puzzle together. 1 yellowtail, plenty of bonito and rockfish. A 40 lb rod, a few yoyo jigs and an assortment of torpedo sinkers.

Hi friends. Same type of scenario today just as it was yesterday; we saw tuna everywhere but could only scratch up some fish on the troll throughout the day and our weather was hot, humid, and sunny. Hard to get a fish to eat a bait with a hook in it today and it was also hard to not sweat off all of our sunscreen on our faces. Like I said, it was a difficult day as we had to troll up most of our catch with the exception of a few handfuls of quality yellowtail on the yo-yo jigs and dropper loops on one of our many anchor jobs. Maybe these fish will get with the program and bite but we won't be around to see it as we have to start making our way up the line. We'll do a little fishing on the way up tomorrow and we'll probably give it a full day on the local tuna grounds on Friday. Our weather is just dandy and we're enjoying our traveling at the moment. We'll report back to you tomorrow.
Before I go, a couple of things I'd like to address. First, Mark finally had himself some good ole' fashioned hardhat time today for being a humongous dork while winding in a yo-yo iron. Second, we'd like to issue a congrats to our good buddy and former Polaris Supreme family member Derek Waldman. Derek ran his first trip as master of the Red Rooster III and had himself a very solid first trip. For those of you who don't remember, Derek is a solid dude and has one of the biggest hearts a person could have and we're thrilled for him. Good job, Derek. Here's to many more.

Today was rough.I'm not talking about the fishing. I'm talking about the weather. We were expecting this though. We knew it would be this way so we had plans all along to keep it a down swell day. We started west and moved east jigging up small tuna. We expected this as well. We must of caught 50 tuna this morning but only 10 of them wound up with tags stapled to there gills. All the rest went back into the ocean to fight another day. Right before lunch we hit a nice kelp and caught 20 nice yellows. We thought we were going to string together a few kelps after that but that was the last thing we saw all day long other than a few jig strikes on throw back tunas. So we're headed to the Island now and we'll be there before daylight. Wish us luck.
Good news. We're getting our Gunny back August 8th. I miss that well done steak eating man. If you're reading this Guns, bring another blanket. I've been using your's aqnd it's been working great. I've been putting it on top of my blanket though so if you want it back it shouldn't have my cooties on it.
Good evening to everyone at home or wherever you may read this. After one night dockside we were back to the boat this afternoon. We headed to the fuel dock and changed oil and fuel filters, filled her all the way up on fuel, grabbed some brine making salt and loaded 2 weeks worth of food. Shortly after getting back to Fishermans Landing, all our dogs got here. I'm talking about George, Craig, Charlie, the Jer-bear, the Bry man, Bernie, Scott and the infamous J.C. Infamous. That's like really famous.
We took our time at the bait receivers to ensure we had the best that bait could offer us. We're pretty happy with it at the moment. For the next 4 days we'll be traveling to our destination of the Shamada seamount. AKA Hurricane Bank. And speaking of hurricanes, there isn't one at the moment. Lately they've just been rolling in one after another but for now, none. It's our destiny to get down below and catch very large yellowfin and wahoo. Tommy spent a bunch of money and rented a system that allows us to get on the web where ever we are which allows us too look at all our weather web sites to keep track of storms that may be an issue to us. So worry not. We won't be anywhere near a low pressure system this trip. Safe and sound out here as always.
Anyways, it sure looked to me like everyone had a good afternoon hanging out, getting there cigar on and doing what they do. We didn't even make it through dinner before the Bry-man and the Jer-bear got on what they call Team Bernard. It's there thing to talk some smack and make fun of Scott and Bernie and it's hilarious on all sides. Here we go.
So for the next few days we'll be getting ready for a week of some hardcore fishing. Rigging tackle, tuna and wahoo seminars, naps, movies, food, cocktails... I think the next few reports will read like this paragraph we're on now.
