Good evening. We spent our morning getting the Supreme and her passengers out of the weather for a bit, attempting to locate some coastal species for a morning while we gave the offshore scene a rest. We didn't quite connect like we were hoping but we did manage to catch a few yellowtail for our efforts, so all was not for lost. We made the decision to get back offshore and see what was going on and what was going on was scattered jig strikes on yellowfin tuna with some bait stops to go along with it. There is still some good hits to be had out here on both bluefin and yellowfin but we just didn't locate the right batch of fish. For tomorrow, we'll be fishing a little bit closer to home as we'll give it a try for a few hours and then have to book it for home. Wish us luck and sorry for the short report, the weather traveling up isn't the best conditions for typing but it's still okay to traveling. It could be a lot worse but we don't want that. Take care and we'll chat with you tomorrow.
We missed again this morning folks. I'm not very happy about it, but I've excepted it. We've definitely put in our work this trip. Not necessarily physically these last couple days but mentally for sure. I am drained. We didn't want to spend another afternoon like we spent yesterday so we left the grounds and fished the Coronado Islands this afternoon. We didn't see much yellowtail. Myself or the other long range boat here. I heard some good analogies this trip by other captains on the radio that I'd like to share. Looking at the fish reports is like watching sports center. They keep showing you all the top tens, but they almost never show the other Joe's, and sometimes you're the bug, and sometimes you're the windshield. Most guys the last couple days have been the bugs.
There have been quite a few firsts for me lately. First of all I've never spent this much time fishing this close to home other than my 3/4 day days.. I have never been anchored up right outside the harbor on the second night of the trip. We were there catching bait. I've never captained the boat to San Clemente or the Coronado Islands. There's probably more. Oh yeah, I've never seen the 5 freeway from the boat. Mark thought it was a bird school. In his defense, I had to give it a double take too.
So that's it. We're going home and we'll be leaving for 5 tomorrow. Tommy is coming back out so he'll be deciding where to go. I'll tell you though, it's tough to pass on this fish. Unfortunately for us, it's the best grade of tuna around. It's great for the 1/2 day boats though.
49 yellowfin tuna 11 yellowtail. We also saw a few schools of 50-100 lb bluefin. The wise angler would come prepared with an assortment of line sizes from 20 to 40 lb.
Someone cant wait to sink his teeth into his delicious Dorado!
