Today we had about as good of yellowtail fishing as you can get. Quality to quantity ratio, holy Toledo. 18-25 pound fish and they were biting pretty much as full speed as yellows bite for a couple hours and after that it slowed down but they were still biting well for a couple more. If you have read my past reports you know that surface iron fishing on big yellows is my favorite kind of fishing and it was pretty much wide open on the surface iron. Holy Toledo! I'm not the only one who felt this way either. We have a Polaris Supreme first timer on board, his name is Josh and he may love it more then me. He named his dog after a surface iron. Tady. How cool is that? We've had a tank of mackerel on board for about 3 weeks and we finally let them go today. On hooks that is before getting eaten by yellows. In the late afternoon ewe looked for bait and found some a couple hours before dark and caught a tank full of nice mackerel. We restocked our supply. We made a couple drifts along a kelp line while the sun set and tugged on a few calico bass and now we're headed up to fish tuna tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
Oh yeah, Happy Anniversary to Renee. I think you know who that's from Renee.
Today went well I thought. Starting with our ride up last night. As good as it gets. Flat calm. The only swell was a long swell that would slowly, gently rock the boat. We slept like babies. In fact, I think I woke up with my thumb in my mouth. I let everyone sleep in if they chose to. We didn't start fishing until just before 9:00 in the morning.
We were pleasantly surprised with the fishing. It was good. We tried for some more yellows, for us, and to check out the grounds for future trips as well and they bit well. We kept 2-4 going the whole time until we drove away from them. "We left them biting". Our favorite thing to say out here. After that we ran up and made a few drifts for some Cod. We had the time and I had a few requests so we caught a few rockfish.
Now we're headed home. The crew's scrubbing the boat, I'm writing this, I think there may be a poker game going on, and we're just hanging out and enjoying ourselves and the beautiful ride up. The wind and swell are on our stern. That storm out there is blessing us with a lovely ride home. Its like we're riding down but we're going up. Timing is everything. Sometimes it all comes together and this trip was one of them.
So we'll be home bright and early tomorrow and of course we'll be headed back out a few hours later.
Another great start today. The Yellowtail are biting extreme well. It was a great couple hours of fishing to start the day.
After we had enough inshore fishing we decided to head offshore to look for Bluefin. We were able to connect later in the day, with 5 Tuna up to 40 lbs.
Tough conditions offshore, hoping the tuna will bite better soon.
We will be in tomorrow morning,

Hi friends. Same type of scenario today just as it was yesterday; we saw tuna everywhere but could only scratch up some fish on the troll throughout the day and our weather was hot, humid, and sunny. Hard to get a fish to eat a bait with a hook in it today and it was also hard to not sweat off all of our sunscreen on our faces. Like I said, it was a difficult day as we had to troll up most of our catch with the exception of a few handfuls of quality yellowtail on the yo-yo jigs and dropper loops on one of our many anchor jobs. Maybe these fish will get with the program and bite but we won't be around to see it as we have to start making our way up the line. We'll do a little fishing on the way up tomorrow and we'll probably give it a full day on the local tuna grounds on Friday. Our weather is just dandy and we're enjoying our traveling at the moment. We'll report back to you tomorrow.
Before I go, a couple of things I'd like to address. First, Mark finally had himself some good ole' fashioned hardhat time today for being a humongous dork while winding in a yo-yo iron. Second, we'd like to issue a congrats to our good buddy and former Polaris Supreme family member Derek Waldman. Derek ran his first trip as master of the Red Rooster III and had himself a very solid first trip. For those of you who don't remember, Derek is a solid dude and has one of the biggest hearts a person could have and we're thrilled for him. Good job, Derek. Here's to many more.
