Hi friends. We enjoyed a nice ride up the line last night and found ourselves in a position to do some rock cod drifts for a couple of hours this morning and we added some color to our fish holds by tagging some quality lingcods and reds. After a couple hours of codding, we busted a move offshore for the remainder of the day and found a few kelp paddies holding some nice Yellowtail and one had some Dorado swimming around on it. No great numbers but the fish we did capture were quality kelp paddy species. We had gorgeous weather all day by means of a flat ocean and sunny skies. It would've been nice to add some tuna to the mix but we're happy with our outcome as a whole.

So that's it. Chef Schooler kicked out a Fillet Oscar (Fillet Mignon topped with crab meat and Hollandaise sauce) dinner and the gang enjoyed the ride up. Our gratitude goes out to Mark Costello and the gang for being a superb group to have on-board and we'll see you in the future. Our ETA tomorrow is around 0700 in the morning and we'll be turning around and welcoming aboard Chappy and friends for another five day. We'll chat with you tomorrow after the turn-around. Take care.

Hi friends. Pretty much a repeat report from yesterday. Very good fishing on 18-25 lb. Yellowtail from 0730 this morning until around noon and then it shut off as did the current. We went looking around and found a couple deals of Yellows and added a few more to our count. With that said, we're finished with the Yellowtail area and we're motoring up the line to gain some latitude and finish up our trip tomorrow a little closer to home. There's not much to report other than the fishing has been outstanding for the past two mornings on quality 'tails and we're sitting fat and happy with our totals.

So that's it. Our weather is lovely and I'm sorry I don't have an awesome, wordy report to give to you. It's just been good fishing, good weather, and good people. Not much more to it. Pretty simple, just the way we like it. Take care.

Hello friends. Yellowtail fishing was top notch for us on the Supreme this morning. It started off on the drift for a few quality 'tails and a 45 lb. White Seabass landed by Trampas Costello. We decided to get the anchor down and once we got 'er hung, it was a steady pick on 18-25 lb. fish all the way until after lunch. Really a beautiful grade of fish and we couldn't be happier with our morning score. Once we lost our conditions, we pulled anchor and searched around for a while before we settled back into our "cow zone" and managed to hook a few and land a couple fish in the 35 lb. class before the sunset. Today was a great day of catching quality Yellowtail in the Baja sunshine and we'll be doing it again tomorrow, hoping for the same success. We're currently in the hot night-bite zone, hoping for a bunch more of those gorgeous Seabass and maybe a Yellowtail or two, we'll see. Wish us luck and we'll chat with you tomorrow.

P.S. Leslie - Steve says hi and instead of a cruise, you two are coming out here next year.

Good evening everyone. Overall, today was a slow day but we did manage to catch some fish and we didn't go very long without seeing a spot of jumpers, hooking up on the troll, or stopping on a kelp. We caught a few 12 lb. Bluefin and managed to troll up a handful of 15-22 lb. Yellowfin tuna. All throughout the day, we saw Bluefin boilers until the late afternoon when we lost our water conditions so that's an encouraging sign to see so much fish spread out for miles and miles. Same story today for the fleet, slow fishing for most with the exception of a few token vessels getting lucky. One of these days, we'll be the lucky ones.

Although we saw a good amount of life, today was too slow of a pace to keep us around so we're making a move to do some Yellowtail fishing. We'll be there tomorrow morning, our weather is very favorable, and we'll chat with you tomorrow.

Hi friends. The seas are calm, the skies are clear, and the Supreme is back on the path after dropping off Paul Hess's group and picking up Mark Costello and his closest friends. We're loaded up a good supply of bait and when I say loaded, I mean loaded. We'll be giving the Bluefin area a check first thing in the morning as it sounds like that fishing out there is starting to take shape. It sounds like the lucky boats are getting a little bit luckier and the unlucky boats are still gathering up a few to boot. We'll be there to find out tomorrow and we'll make a decision on our next plan based on our morning. We'll chat with you tomorrow.

Captain Ryan Bostian called in with an update from “The San Diego” out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay. Today we fished offshore and saw very good sign of big Bluefin Tuna.
We caught 13 Bluefin for our 22 passengers. The fish are between 50 and 70 pounds. So the quality is very nice. They are not biting full speed yet but we did see some amazing schools today. If you would like to go Bluefin Tuna fishing on The San Diego called Seaforth Sportfishing at (619) 224-3383 or BOOK ONLINE at www.thesandiego.com to get in on the action.

Hi friends. Flat calm weather, sunshine, and Yellowfin tuna was on our wish-list today and our wishes were granted. It took the fish a little while to wake up this morning but when they showed their faces, we located them and introduced ourselves. We caught fish all sorts of ways today; jumpers, puddlers, breezers, jig strikes, meter marks, sonar marks, and the fishiest birds of all, Tern birds, were helping us locate schools today. We never had a really great stop but we pieced together a lot of good stops and we ended up with a fine catch for our anglers. Throw in some Bluefin and a few nice Dorado for color and you have the recipe for a fantastic day on the water. I honestly feel that with a little less boat pressure, the schools would've been more bountiful but it's hard to find much more to complain about today other than that. Everybody had a shot at a good school and we feel fortunate to be in the zone when they did pop up. It was easy to see them pop up from just about anywhere with the weather we had today. Jock straps and sun visor weather for sure.

So that's all. We're headed up the line and wish to arrive sometime around 0900 hours in the morning. We'll see what kind of speed we make rolling up. Our next report will come to you on Thursday evening as we depart on a 1.5 day trip. Take care.

Good evening folks. We arrived this morning at 0800 hours, unloaded our fish and guests, and departed the docks @ 1300 hours to embark on our 2-day trip. Our bait looks OK, plenty good enough for some offshore fish to accept our offerings. The reports from the area are different. As of 1830, the boats were just now starting to get some jig strikes and see more sign of fish. Nonetheless, we'll be there first thing tomorrow morning to give it a full day and see what we can come up with. The weather here and for most of the coast is absolutely gorgeous, so we like that a lot. We also like that the forecast calls for more of the same. We're hoping the weatherman is correct and the fish pop up here for us tomorrow. Wish us luck and have a great day.

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!

July 23 Friday After spending all day yesterday searching and not catching our 35 albacore we caught this morning seamed like a bonanza. They shut off at 11:00 and that was that. With the Albacore hit we got on the way down and one of those days fishing Yellowtail one can only dream of, our over all fishing was great. many thanks to our charter head Paul and his great crew of anglers. For my self and the crew we had a great time with all. From all of us good luck in the Marines Rose Go Kick Butt! and Be Safe! Thanks for tuning in. Eta is 7 am. Tommy and Crew. P.S. Ya I know Richie writes and spells better than me.

 

 

 

But he also dose a better job scrubbing and Drew wasn't letting him get out of it. Tommy. July 22nd, 2010 Hello to all. Today we decided to look around at some new territory for the elusive albacore. I'm going to cut right to the chase, fishing was great and catching was terrible. We did see an area of birds/whales that looked promising but we never saw a tuna and that was the highlight of our day. Maybe in time this area will be productive but for now, we know where not to go. The weather is still picture-perfect and our anglers are all in good spirits. We are currently moving up the line to put ourselves in position for a full day of albacore/bluefin fishing for our final day. We'll check back in tomorrow and keep you posted on our day. Richie and Crew. July 21st, 2010 Wow, what a day we had aboard the Polaris Supreme. We arrived at our destination first thing in the morning to find calm seas and a slight overcast. After some scanning around, we located a nice school and within a few minutes we were bent over with yellowtail. It wasn't wide open by any means but it was a very enjoyable pace for our fine group of folks. Around lunch time, we went through a little lull and took full advantage of a chance to rest sore arms, enjoy a glass of water, and get out of the sun for a bit. Oh yeah, the weather was gorgeous. Flat calm with sunshine. The SPF 50 was flowing for sure. Anyhow, after a little break, it was time to go to work again. This go-around, the yellows gave off a much more ferocious vibe and we enjoyed excellent fishing to round out our day. The show of yellowtail was very impressive to say the least. Not many times when we would look into the water and not see free swimming yellowtail everywhere. In closing, we had a very fun day of fishing and we will be sleeping easy tonight. Our plan is to take a look in some different areas for tomorrow and to hopefully round out our beautiful catch of yellowtail with some tuna fish. Thanks for checking in and wish us luck. Richie and crew. July 20th, Good evening everyone, We finally wet our lines first thing this morning and it didn't take us long to get the blood flowing with some Albacore jig strikes. After some short stops for a handful of fish, we found what we we're looking for. We enjoyed a couple of very good stops that kept us busy for the morning. We also threw on a few Bluefin tuna to round out our morning. After lunch, things kind of died down and we decided to head on a southerly course to do some Yellowtail fishing. The cherry on today's sundae was the absolutely beautiful weather. Flat calm, a light breeze, and a nice cloud cover to keep us from getting too toasty. Well thanks for checking up on us. We'll be at the Yellowtail grounds first thing in the morning. Take care. Richie and crew. July 19th, Hi friends, Today we departed on our annual Paul Hess 5 day with 23 of his closest friends. After clearing Point Loma with a beautiful load of bait and an eager group of anglers, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch and rigged up tackle. After our tackle seminar, Sandra and Dave Lafferty went to work in the galley preparing a meal fit for kings and queens. Appetizers, clam chowder and Caesar salad. Main course, Fresh salmon and crab cakes with a hollandaise sauce with gourmet macaroni and cheese, asparagus and corn. To top off the meal, we enjoyed homemade cherry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. To sum it up, it was excellent. The service was top notch as well. Paul and Kyle served it up and Matt kept those dishes sparkling clean. The whole dinner was a thank you from Paul and friends for 10 years of the fine service he's been treated to onboard the Polaris Supreme. From all of us, thank you to Paul and the gang. Anyhow, reports from the tuna grounds sound encouraging so we will find ourselves in the zone tomorrow morning. Thanks for checking in and we'll keep you updated on what we do. Wish us luck. Richie and crew.
