Captain Aliyar checked in with this report today:
19 Bluefin Tuna in the 80-120 lb. range. Few openings left this month, get booked now, so you don't miss out.April has 8 openings on if you want to come on that and then we have some open a day and half for the trip. So you guys want to come fishing give Lindsay a call 619-736-3420 going to help you out with any questions. You have any light or you can go on a Polaris Supreme TR4 schedule. So good sign of fish. We'd love to have you out there, but we'll see you on the list.
Not a very good day for us today. I wish I could call it a travel day too but we did a lot of fishing, just not catching. Well, we did need to travel for 4 hours of the day to put us in position for tomorrow, so maybe I can call it a travel day. Anyways, the weather today was pretty crappy when I first woke up and not much better when we arrived to our first fishing destination of the day at 7:00 AM. That could be why the wahoo weren't there and biting. But after 3 hours there, the weather was nice. The wind backed off and the ocean flattened out. Unfortunately 12 miles below there the current did a 180 and the wind picked up a little and things got jacked up. The swell and chop were coming from every which way and we couldn't pick a smooth course. We got our roll on for most the rest of the day. Spot #2 looked like we could've caught a bunch of nice yellers but the skip jack wouldn't let us have any of it. They were hitting everything we threw in. That's alright though. We needed the chunk for tomorrow. We did get a few nice yellows though.
After that we had a delicious cheeseburger and some took a nap during our 20 mile move. I had high hopes for this place but it was not to be so we threw in the towel a bit before dark to make sure we give ourselves plenty of time to get to our next destination. We'll be hunting for cows tomorrow. We need a little luck and by that I mean good timing. The fish need to be on the bank tomorrow for us because above here didn't seem like the answer for the last couple of days.
Mama Bear: Though we only caught a few wahoo today, your little rascal caught one of them. His first wahoo. I guess the ritual for that is a deck hose soaking? I never heard of that but he got a drenching after that one.
When we go offshore on these trips we are basically looking for 1 good school. 1 good bluefin school if it’s in the right mode will stick with the boat all day and provide plenty of action. With that being said, today we saw 4 nice schools but only managed to land 1 tuna.

We arrived today at Fisherman's Landing at 7 am after a nice smooth ride last night. After weighing up the jackpot we were pleasantly surprised with the fact that the yellows were larger than we thought. Joe Beck took 1st place with a 42.6 lb yellowtail. Mike Grella took 2nd with a 41.3 yellowtail and Tim Walsh followed it all up with the 3rd place 39.6 lb yellowtail. Congratulations to our jackpot winners.
The Polaris Supreme will be departing next on Thursday afternoon on a private 1 1/2 day charter sponsored by Optima. We still have openings on our 3-day departing July 10 as well as other trips throughout the summer. Give Susan a call to get on board.
Thanks! Tommy and crew
P.S. Yes Kub, that was the yellowtail Joe hooked on the jig on his first cast of the morning. Thanks to you, for waking him up for the bite!

Good evening. A sloppy ride last night was forgotten about around 1000 hours this morning as what was a crummy ride a few hours before turned into a stable ride for most of the day. With the bucking seas last night we only had an hour or so of actual stop time if we got into anything special but it never happened. We trolled through beautiful water today but were unable to locate or catch anything. Lack of bait species in the water is probably the reason we didn't see much and hopefully, it's just a matter of time before everything gets in order and we get a shot at some offshore action. We'll see.
The gang broke down tackle today and got caught up on sleep that a bouncy ride deprived them of. The crew scrubbed the boat and took care of a few maintenance projects before days end. Our traditional fillet and lobster dinner was served promptly at 1800 hours and a bow was put on the 2011 Beck/Wagstaff party. We had slow fishing for a couple days to start off the trip but we finished up with a bang and all in all, we call this trip a success. We're grateful for the guys being a great group to have on-board regardless of catching fish or not. They are a fun bunch of passengers to hang out with and for that, we thank them. We also thank Joe Beck and Mal Wagstaff for year after year putting together quite the mix of personalities that make this trip an excellent one to start the season out with.
We're heading home in nice weather and we're prepared for a date with docks tomorrow. Our ETA to Fisherman's Landing is 0700 hours Tuesday morning and we'll be back out Thursday night for a day and a half trip. Time to get local. Chat with you then, good night.
