Not much to report from us today. It was a pretty uneventful day. We traveled all morning until after lunch when we arrived to the Islands, and we never saw a yellowtail. It was dead as can be at this place. We took the tour, well as much as we could in a few hours, and ended up back here in the lee. We were and still are catching calico bass and things. We did hook something big, a yellow or a big halibut or even a seabass, but we'll never know because the hook straightened out right before we could see it and the fish got away. And that's it. We're going to try and keep our anchor hung right here and see what kind of conditions we have here in the morning for our last day of fishing. As soon as the wind backs off enough for a tolerable ride offshore Tuesday morning, we'll be on our way home.
We had a slow day today. The morning seemed promising. We caught a little but we saw a whole lot. If just one of those schools we saw this morning wanted to bite a little we would of had a great day. That seems to be the deal this year though. Today, we hit the wrong schools. We caught about 20 ish this morning from 30-50 pounds. The afternoon stunk. We ran in to where we finished up last night and it was muerto. We ended up in an area late that had mucho fish but unfortunately they were all small. We didn't even try them. It wasn't worth wasting our precious sardine for.
The good news about not catching much fish this afternoon is we still have some of a tank of sardine left to fish with this morning. It's 4:00 AM as I write this and we just finished up with our attempt at bait making. We caught plenty of bait, but it wasn't a good size for the tuna that's out here so we're going to try and make some lemonade here. We're going to take our big spanish mackerel and take it to where the 150+ pound bluefin live. We'll do this after we run out of sardine this morning. No one has tried that cow BF with a couple tanks of spanish yet. Maybe that's the key to it all.
The weather remains great. We had a few hours this afternoon where things were getting interesting. We had a descently strong wind out of the southeast and with it came some rain. It wasn't all that neat but it didn't last long. Things went back to butter. Nice.
Well we had a super busy day aboard the Polaris Supreme today. It all began at 4:00 a.m. when the crew woke up and started pulling our catch of cows and wahoo out of the fish holds. We tied up dockside at 6:00, off loaded all the passengers gear and then the fish. It was a long process. We got everything up to the top of the docks and then came the weigh in. I believe we ended up with 16 over 200 pounds and the one we taped at 297 ended up being just that. Damn. 3 pounds off. What a bummer? It was still a personal best for our friend George. Way to go sir.
After that there was a big work list to be done to prepare for the next trip but we got ur done and departed on Joe Gigliotti's 3rd annual Accurate sponsored 8 day trip this afternoon. We got a good load of bait and we're currently in route to the bluefin grounds. There was a couple of lucky boats today and many wiffs but we're going to try and get lucky tomorrow. It sure would be nice to get the sweat off on some 40-60 pound b.f.'s tomorrow let me tell you. So that's it. Good weather, good food and good company. Mostly regulars on this trip. There's only a couple of new faces. We'll keep you posted.
Come fishing on our Seeker 1.5 day trip leaving tomorrow!
Some of the most incredible surface action I have seen!
We have been landing some quality Bluefin Tuna. However they have been making us work for them.
Brief windows of opportunity’s throughout the day are keeping everyone on their toes. Overall a tough day.
Hopefully they want to bite better soon!
