Good evening everybody. A fine night of traveling made for good speed as we arrived to our destination first thing this morning with high hopes of finding some wahoo and some tuna. We managed to find some sign of wahoo and we even caught a few while trolling around. Good grade of 'hoo as well, a couple pushing 45 lbs. for sure. Anyhow, the action wasn't RED hot, but we did catch a few skin and we also saw a little bit of sign on the tuna-fish. Although wahoo gets us as excited as any other fish, we just don't see the sign that would lead us to stick it out another day here. With the exception of the few handfuls of wahoo and the few small tuna we caught, there just isn't any spectacular sign of fish here. One thing that is spectacular, the weather. Another day of flat seas, light breeze, and sunshine, and with sunshine comes more bronzing, and a few of us did that too. In time, this area will produce but it's just not right now.

Polaris Supreme Mid Day Report
Wow what a morning. Crazy El Nino Generated Weather. Thunder Storms, Lightning Strikes next to the boat, Rain, Rain, Rain. There I said it El Nino! I don't know what everybody was waiting for. We have been driving around in 72 degree water for a month now its a steady 74 and pushing 80 east of Guadalupe Island. It's September 9th and we are catching yellowfin and bluefin 70 to 160 miles from San Diego with no signs of it slowing. Today, we have caught only rat Yellows so far but have high hopes for this afternoon.
Tommy And Crew.

The Polaris Supreme docked at Fisherman's Landing August 19. Tom Rothery skippered the five-day trip with 24 anglers, and remarked that this Dan Heil memorial trip was the 23rd for the charter group.
Jeff Hoover of Richland, WA won first place and took over the top spot in the jackpot and for the best bluefin of the season.
"He fought for 45 minutes," said Geoff. "He was the strongest fish I ever felt, and my best fish ever. He beat me up!"
Hoover said he baited a sardine on a 3/0 Super Mutu hook. He used 40-pound line, a Penn two-speed reel and a Seeker Black Steel 6470 rod.
Bob Hagan of Ramona was second for a 38-pound Opah that erred on a sardine. Mike Myer of La Mirada won third place for a 37.6-pound albacore, but declined to stand in the lineup, so Gene McKenna of San Jose stepped up with his 30-pound dorado.

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.
