Once again our day started off early with the kites going out at 0430 with high hopes of catching giant yellowfin tuna but it seem like the tuna just wanted to sleep in so by mid morning we put the jigs and went looking around, We found the wahoo and mid grade tuna striking our jigs the rest of the day, As the sun began to set we went into bait catching mode and caught a tank full of big bait, not much happen after that.
GUNNY AND THE SUPREME TEAM
Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
Hi friends. Not too much to report today on the Polaris Supreme. After the completion of lunch, all we did was pull on bluefin tuna, dorado, and yellowtail. Granted, the dorado's were shin slappers and the yella's were neck ties, but we did weed out a handful of nicer onces and kept the BFT's a comin'. We did see a couple flurries of that smaller 12-15 lb. fish, but for the most part, our grade was a solid 25-30 lb. grade, and they bit very well too.
To give you an idea of how good fishing was, and for some reason, I'm still kind of buzzing about this situation, but after monitoring the anglers on the bow for a while, I couldn't help but toss a line out, as there were boils ten feet from the boat and the angler participation was starting to dwindle as the end of the day was upon us and the cocktails were beginning to flow. Anyhow, I was soaking a bait for a bit, chattin' it up with an angler to my left, and here comes another angler to the bow with a fish that's close to gaff on my right. So, I grabbed a gaff, put my rod in the gaff holder, in gear, and told the angler "If this gets bit (pipe dream), grab it and swap out your rod for the hooked up one." About thirty seconds later, as my anglers fish was getting ready for the death-shot, I hear "Hey Richie! Something is--uh--happening!" Low and behold, the gaff rig is full bendo with line screaming off of it. Wowza! For all this "Bluefin require a stealthy approach and light line", we hooked one up with a half dead bait, in gear, sitting in the rack. Bottom line, excellent fishing. No reason to not tell a little story that I thought was pretty hot.
So that's it. Pretty easy decision for tomorrow's activities as we're going to put out the "sack" and try have a repeat of today tomorrow. Hopefully we connect with a morning bite on the bag and don't have to pull it first thing at 0530 hours. Our weather is just okay, a little breezy and choppy but plenty workable conditions. We'll chat with you tomorrow.
He made the right move. Tommy that is. We came, we saw, we conquered. I told you we'd be at The Island today. It was good. We had good fishing. We arrived after breakfast, and found a little something to work with but we could tell it just wasn't it. So we looked around and we found "It". Premo's. Premiums baby and lots of them. We had one heck of an afternoon on premium grade yellowtail. When we say that we mean a mid to upper 20 average. Slug yellowtails. You never get used to it either. Every time someone brings one over the rail it's like, "dang those things are beauts"! And that's all I have to say about that. A very full hold of slugs and then some.
Once again we can not get one to bite the surface iron. The past few trips have been prime surface iron conditions. We have the Big Banana out(the long pole) but we can not get Banana crazy. Weird.
We're going to try and get our tuna on the next couple of days. If we happen to bump into some more YT's along the way then ok. That'll be alright. The fleet for the most part has been off the mexican yellowfin the last several days and we're going to try and get back on them. It's sounds like there has been an impressive amount of fish being seen up above in the U.S. It doesn't bite on a consistent basis yet but that's soon coming. It bites fairly often but I have a feeling the fleets in for some very good fishing in the near future. I'm not necessarily trying to get you to book, but come on, book. There may be a spot or two left.
