Captain Aliyar called in with us today from the Polaris Supreme:
We are on our way home after a 1.5 Day with excellent Bluefin fishing. We have limits of Bluefin Tuna up to 115 pounds with the majority in the 40-50 pound range. We had a stop last night in the dark and caught 30 Bluefin with the flat falls.
We have a bunch of 1.5 Day trips and 3 Day trips open for April.
Next open party trip departs on Sunday, April 11th at 7PM for a 1.5 Day trip.
Today was an enjoyable day out here in the old west. We didn't catch much fish, but we still had a good time. I take that back, we didn't keep much fish. We started this morning in a little zone, and it was full speed jiggin um up. Stop and go, stop and go, stop and go. Mostly small yellowfin unfortunately.. There was a sprinkling of good ones in the mix along with some nice yellowtaiil, and it sort of felt like any minute we'd find that school of good ones, but it also kind of felt like we were in the wrong zone at the same time. Funny how that works.
By mid morning we were out of there. We made a move up to the next break. The fishing wasn't very good for us up there, but the weather all day was excellent, and when you have a boat full of friends aboard, you can't miss. We did see some cool wild life. There was a pod of, must of been 10 not sure what kind of whales that swam across the bow. Nobody else saw, but I saw all of them at once breeching when they were about a mile or so off. We also ran across a couple pods of Orcas too. With these we cruised for a while along side of them and checked out the Shamus of the wild. It was some good viewing let me tell you.
About an hour before dark, only 7 miles away, a boat got on a school of the better grade tuna and caught a bunch. Unfortunately for us, we didn't connect before dark more than a half dozen of these but we know where to be tomorrow and we're confident we'll get a bunch.

What's good, people. There are two kinds of Sinclairs in this world, Upton and Matthew. We had both today. Our fishing was Upton Sinclair-style, real good, and we have Matthew Sinclair and his mustache to help us on deck this trip. We caught all of the major species today and we even got our bronze on. First of the season! You farmers and your tans were no match for the Baja sun that we soaked up today. It was hot and flat out here, check the pictures if you don't believe me. Polaris Supreme. Come to think of it, ever since I took my shirt off, the fish wouldn't stop jumping into the boat until I buttoned her back up at days end. Ouch. Anyhow, awesome fishing at the Ridge today and just when we thought it was all said and done, Tommy "Black Eyes" Miles found a kelp at five miles that kicked out all the flatheads we could handle. Never underestimate the blackhawk and his powerful vision. Oh yeah baby, I done told y'all once to get on our level and I don't like to repeat myself. Ronny and the boys are so pumped right now. Big yellowfin, big bluefin, small yellowfin, small bluefin, big dorado, small dorado, big yellowtail, and small yellowtail. Oh yeah, we even hooked a really nice striped marlin today too. Abbey Wombat (the U.S. womens soccer star) couldn't be more proud of us right now. God Bless America.
So what's the plan for tomorrow? I don't know, I'm just a deckhand but I'll ask the skipper ... skipper says it's a secret. Intriguing. We'll report back tomorrow.
