The ride going up last night wasn't good, although I can't say it was awful either. It was just your average windy rough ride up the line. I'm just not used to it, that's all. The weather for the most part these last couple months for me has just been so good. It doesn't matter because the weather got good again for the important part which is the fishing. And we took advantage of it. We found our dorado kelp. The dorado were small to big and they were plentiful. It was our first dorado kelp of the year. Finally. Though we've had plenty of other specie to keep us busy this year. If you know me you know I'm all about the competition so I like to make searching for kelps fun. Today I challenged Mark to a kelp off which means the person who finds the loaded dorado kelp wins. He found it and of course I couldn't be happier about it. It may be the only thing I'm glad to lose to. Of course he wanted me to tell you all about it. He finally beat me. It was the cherry on top of this wonderful trip. Another one in the books. We're headed back to the barn all fat and happy. Fat from too much eating and happy with all the fish we caught. We'll be dockside tomorrow morning at 6:30 and yes, we will be heading back out to sea. I'll be taking the LA Rod and Reel club out fishing for a couple days.
Good fishing again today in the local tuna grounds it sounds like. Let's make it one more tuna trip for the year before it's over. Our October 3rd and 6th trips are both for sure goes. Let's, and by that I mean you, make our September 26th and 29th trips a go too. Come fishing! My baby can be without her dad for another week if it means she gets those shoes she's been begging me for. 5 months old and she's already begging for shoes. Holy Toledo.
24 pass. 11 yellowtail 8 calico bass. Conditions took a step in the right direction today. The future looks bright !
Polaris Supreme Trip Update 11-15-2013
The majestic blood-red sunset that we experienced at the end of our day today was simply magnificent. I'm not exaggerating. Allow me to set the stage. We've been struggling to find the fish that we've been looking for in sufficient quantities over the past few days, but we found EXACTLY what the doctor had ordered earlier in the afternoon. One of the crew perched in the crow's nest spotted some bird activity around a floating object in the distance. We trolled past the inflated "gas bag", and soon the entire boat erupted in mayhem. Virtually every bait to hit the water was quickly inhaled by the voracious dorado residing near the flotsam. Once we put the hurt on those good-size flatheads, the wahoo started to bite. We did well. Real well. Anyway, back to the sunset. Visualize a full moon rising in the east, casting glimmering silhouettes on the slight chop, as the sun is setting in the west, lighting up the entire field of vision with a crimson glow. It was simply magnificent. We fished until darkness interrupted us.
"Red sky at night ..." . so of course we're looking forward to another beautiful day out here tomorrow, weather-wise. The fishing is merely icing on the cake. Speaking of cake ... dinner tonight is a braised German chicken dish. Gotta go, I'm hungry!

Today was a good day out here. We started our morning off with a few yellowfin strikes and at 8:30 we hit a good school of stock 25-30 pound bluefin, a few bigger and a few smaller with some yellowfin and dorado mixed in. We drifted with them for two and a half hours. For most the rest of the day we didn't drive for more then an hour before seeing something. We found a dab of 40-60 pound bluefin and landed one, we found another dab of 25-30 pounders and landed 10, we found a kelp for a handfull of yellowfin along with the occasional yf jig strike. An action packed day, just what we needed. Good weather for us today but the guys down below are complaining about rough weather. We're heading in now and Tommy Rothery is coming back out after a long land stretch and is taking the boat out for 8 days. I'm sure he's looking forward to getting out of the office and back on the water.
We found some action early this morning on a kelp with some yellowtails. Mark found it but I don't think I can give him credit for it. "twelve oclock, a trash can lid. Oh I lost it. oh nine o'clock. ile in a half. No, half mile. Two trash can lids. Oh I lost it". The second time he lost it he looked ion the wrong side of the boat so i found it and it was a good sized kelp. Oh Mark. Anyhow, everyone on the boat got to pull and tug on a little yeller and tag one or two if they chose. We hit it a couple times before getting in tuna mode. Things looked very similar to yesterday. Many spots of yellowfin around, just no meat to it. I'm talking 6-12 fish schools mostly and they weren't very interested in us.We worked very hard for just a handful of fish. The good news is it wasn't boring as I think I mentioned last night. The fish kept us on our toes. Good sight seeing. Good fishing, bad catching. Oh well. We still had a good time out here on our first trip of the year and we have our passengers to thank.
Please excuse the spelling. I'm sitting back in my chair as I write this and the letters on the screen are to small to see and the E on this keyboard keeps falling off. We'll get everything under control real soon.
