Hi friends. Checking in here to give a weekly wrap-up of our week on the Polaris Supreme. Before I forget, Tommy wanted me to mention that he and Susan are in the middle of redoing the website and they wanted me to let everyone know that in the near future, you will be able to book directly on the website with a credit card. So that's cool. No middle man. Alright! Anyhow, ...on to our week.
Jed and myself finished prepping the generators, threw a couple coats of primer/gloss on those beauties, and they shine real bright. Gunny finished painting the engine room floorboards and they're looking real nice. Really ties the engine room together, man. Our entire engine room is pretty much white and aluminum. It looks really spiffy, let me tell you. I'll try and snap some photos since passengers aren't allowed in the E.R. and get those to Tommy soon. All that is left is the prepping and painting of the mains and that will complete our paint job in the engine room. Yay!
On Thursday, the entire team shifted gears to getting ready for our annual Coast Guard inspection that we completed this morning. Tanya of the USCG took a fine-toothed comb to the boat and all that was found were a couple of small fixes. Great success! After Coast Guard, we put the lazz and anchor locker back together and called it a week.
I'm pretty sure the final count for Jed and Gunny today was a spotted bay bass each and we are even more sure that Mark is out of shape.
Have a great weekend. Season is just around the corner and those bluefins are snappin'. Quit bitin' your lip and get on a trip! On to the final phase of our maintenance season starting Monday. Take care.
The Supreme Team
November 25, 2022 brigantine surf Fishing Report
30 pass. 12 yellowtail 4 yellowfin tuna 2 dorado. Decent yellowfin sign but they were difficult to hook. Light line and small hook was the best chance. We also managed 2 dorado. Can’t say I have ever seen dorado in 66 degree water but nothing is normal anymore.

Not much action in the morning for us. We were seeing very little and not catching much and had little time to do it so we searched in new grounds. We saw a couple of real good schools that wouldn't cooperate only managing to hook and land 1. We had a kelp for some 18-25 pound yellows so maybe we'll see more of that in the near future. It was a tasty looking zone. I wish we would've had more time to look in it but we were too far from home so we had to head it for the barn. Great weather today and we're forecasting more of the same in the foreseeable future. We'll be a little later to the dock with an eta of about 9:00 am and Tommy will be handling the next trip of 5 days.

We gave it the Dark till Dark effort and came up dry. We did however see multiple very nice schools of yellowfin that were not interested in our hooks.

18 pass. 20 bluefin tuna from 60-80 lbs. Excellent opportunity to hook and land a trophy fish on 40 lb flyline bait with a 1/0 circle hook. 160 gram Flatfalls fished on 60lb was also working well.
