June 3, 2023 agfc weekly Fishing Report
Back after a five-day trip, the 7th Annual Paul Chappell Charter aboard the Polaris Supreme arrived at Fisherman's Landing July 10. The 24 anglers were guided by skipper Drew Henderson.
"We got some nice yellowtail at San Martin," remarked Drew, "but there's a lot of that big squid around there. You can't get any more yellows once they get on you."
Chartermaster Chappell won first place for his 34.6-pound albacore. He said he bagged it with a sardine on a 2/0 Mustad 94150 hook on 30-pound Yo-Zuri line. He fished with a Penn Squidder reel and a Sabre seven-foot rod of the same era.
Phil Beltrami of Napa won second place for a 33.4-pounder, and Craig Pappas of Santa Cruz won third place for a 32.4-pound longfin.

Today was spent prospecting a new area offshore. We were hoping for Tuna, larger Dorado, and Wahoo.
Around lunch time we found a large group of Beaked Whales, pretty amazing site seeing the group breaching and swimming close to the boat.
Later in the day we did manage to find a dead Pygmy Sperm Whale with a huge Mako shark feeding on it. When we got close it was filled with tons of Dorado. There were a few stand outs that were much larger than the rest, but the majority were similar size as yesterday.
We will be trying for Yellowtail tomorrow.
Wish us luck,

Polaris Supreme Trip Update 11-19-2019
Well fishing was pretty darn good today! Just not for us. Our passengers are pretty well fixed up on yellowfin tuna, some people just kept Five or six and Released the rest and some people kept 14 over the last four days. So we decided to go look for Dorado and Wahoo on kelp patties. And let me tell you it didn't work out! As close as we got was one dead turtle with one single Dorado swimming around it. The boat we left behind, where we were fishing tuna in the morning ended up having a phenomenal day before we got back there late in the afternoon. That's how I know it was good fishing! We had good weather today looking but it didn't help a whole lot. Tomorrow we going to go spend about four hours looking for yellowtail to wind up the trip. Our efforts on the Dorado was just in the wrong direction. One boat found an excellent school 40 miles to the northwest of us on a dead seal. Another boat had beautiful bull Dorado fishing 60 miles to the southeast of us today. It just wasn't meant to be for us! So off we go! we will report from the yellowtail grounds tomorrow. We are dragging our feet behind the storm here we don't want to drive up into it. Our weather has been good to excellent the whole trip.
The Polaris Supreme Crew!

Good Morning Everyone.
We had a great mixed bag fishing today. We caught some great grade Yellowtail, Yellowfin Tuna, and trophy Grouper. We managed to land one Wahoo as well. Lot of fish around today, just a lack of current to activate them. Hopefully we have some current tomorrow.
Will Report then,

May 28, 2023 agfc weekly Fishing Report
Well today didn't go like we were hoping. We didn't catch anything on the anchor in the morning like we did yesterday morning. So we thought at least we could get our 3 wahooless passengers a skin but that didn't happen. There were quite a few boats trying. We already caught a bunch of tuna the last couple days, so we stuck with the plan and got out of there way and left to go fish yellows. That was a bust. There were three of us looking around and none of us caught much. Just a few handfuls of yellows was all. So we decided to take off after lunch and we put it on course for Alijos Rocks. We'll be there tomorrow morning and our plan is to catch some more wahoo. We'll give it at least a full day there and maybe even another halfer. Hopefully we have the place to ourselves there tomorrow. We did get one really nice hoo during our travels this afternoon. It was about 65 pounds. A trip maker for the young Darrel. You'll see it later on the website when we put it up. Take care now.
