Well if we thought yesterday was phenomenal, today was even better. I know I'm repeating myself but the fishing was just great again on the wahoo and dorado. And yes the marlin are still here and wanted to play. We have good weather and this is a nice way to end the trip. Great group, great fishing, great crew.

Nice grade of Yellowtail on kelps, with really good sign of Tuna that were hard to catch. Also more Dorado showing on kelps, but the 2 we hooked, found their freedom.

Good evening friends. Wrapping up the 2011 OTR 10-day trip, the big fish honors go as follows: Matt Kiesse - 193.6 lb. Yellowfin tuna, Lon Mikkelsen 149.4 lb. Yellowfin tuna, and Mike "Wedding Bells" Payne rounds out our top three with his 140.0 lb. Yellowfin tuna. Honorable mentions go to Doug "Stick-Bird" Pineo for his 201.2 lb cow and Yacoob Vaheb caught his personal best of 150.0 lbs. Good going to the boys and most everyone on the boat caught a very nice fish in the 75-125 lb. class. For our two days on the bank, it was decent fishing for those lunker Yellowfin's and if we would've caught what we saw, it would've been a trip for the ages. No shortage of fish around just a shortage of bites and consistency, but we made the most of our chances and ended up with a nice load of big tuna to show for it.

We'd like to issue some thanks to a few individuals aboard this last trip. First, we'd like to thank Mike Payne for bringing some crab for all of the folks to enjoy for a dinner and also for bringing some shirts from Rocky Point Resort in Petersburg, Alaska. Second, we got to thank Ben "Bendo" Meyer for once again putting together a great recipe/picture book and CD to give to the folks. Where he gets the time and energy to do such a magnificent job on that book is beyond me. That thing is pro from front to back. And lastly, Lon Mikkelsen. His enthusiasm towards fishing, trying new tactics, and laid-back attitude makes the trip for all to enjoy. He wants to catch all kinds of fish and it doesn't matter if it's rockcod, squid, cow tuna, or any other species we might fish for; he just loves to fish. Also, he's one of the funniest guys around. Thanks to everyone for joining Lon and Greg once again this year and we hope to see all of you next year. The OTR trip is a "can't miss" trip and if anyone is interested in joining Lon on the Polaris Supreme for next years trip, I have a solid piece of advice for you; book early.

So that is all. We'll be departing this evening for a 6-day Guadalupe Island trip devoting our time to Great White shark research. Our next report will be on Saturday from the cages. Take care and we'll chat with you then.

Hi friends. Not a whole lot to report today. We made a couple of stops for the guys who wanted to fill out their Yellowtail limit and for those who just wanted to do a little catch and release. Other than that, we just ate, read, played cribbage, and took naps the duration of the day and we concluded this evening's dinner with Lon handing out a bunch of OTR gear and countless other goodies to the fine folks aboard. Tommy bypassed a two-hundred bottle of wine for a "Chum King" chumming device that you can send to the bottom, pull a cord, and chum disperses. It looks a lot like those things that when you drive up to the bank teller and you put the money or deposit into the tubes and they shoot off to the teller at Mach speed. I guess it's the gift that keeps on giving because a bottle of wine only gives you fun for one night. Looking back on it, excellent choice, Tommy.

Well, us and Tommy's new toy are going to try to capture some of those tasty Vermilion rockfish and Lingcod for a few hours tomorrow so we'll let you know how things wind up. Our weather is absolutely awesome and we're extremely fortunate to have the sea conditions that we are experiencing right now. We'll be dropping our loops tomorrow morning, wish us luck and we'll report back to you in the evening.

Hi friends. We made it to the grounds first thing this morning and immediately began dropping Yellowtail in the wells. It wasn't great fishing by any means but it was a good pick on 'tails averaging right around the 15-18 lb. mark. After our morning, we looked around for some tuna sign and after locating a nice school on one of the shallows, it wasn't long after we came tight on the anchor that we started hooking some. Problem was, it was mostly Black Skipjack, not cool. After a while of weeding out the junk, our fishing became pretty clean fishing on some school-sized Yellowfin. We caught a healthy catch of these Yellowfin's for the remainder of the afternoon and we also managed to capture a couple of Wahoo for our day. It was a good day for us on the Supreme and along with our good fishing, we also had pretty nice weather to boot. For tomorrow, we'll be traveling for most of the day but I'm sure we'll have some time to do a little Yellowtail and Grouper fishing. With a good load of tuna on the boat for the gang, it's time to start making way up the line and finish out our trip on Yellows and tasty bottom-dwellers.

So that is all. Our weather is a bit sloppy this evening but we'll see what happens tomorrow morning. We'll chat with you at this time tomorrow evening.

Hi folks. Tough day for us as we ventured offshore in search of bigger tuna. Things just weren't right and although we saw sign of fish, it wasn't our day to catch any. With that, we motored up the line to see if we couldn't snag us some Wahoo or find some school-sized tuna. No-go on the tuna but we did troll up a few Wahoo for our day. Our day consisted of beautiful sea conditions but a ton of rain. From about mid-morning all the way until we were finished making bait this evening, it poured on us and although the boat and gear needed a good fresh watering, it got a little old after about hour five of non-stop precipitation. Oh well, it could've been worse, it could've been windy with large seas, or it could've snowed. It's just one of the many elements that we have to deal with while out on the open-ocean.

So that is all. Not too much to report other than we're making our way up the line to do some offshore fishing tomorrow for a variety of species and hopefully, our report will tell a tale of lots of different fish and sunshine. We'll see and wish us luck. We'll chat with you tomorrow.

-Team Supreme-

p.s. Everyone on the boat would like to say congratulations to Herb Yamanaka and the Oregon Ducks. The "luck" was not with the Cardinal on this day, it was all about the Ducks, good going and we miss you and your enthusiasm on this trip! Tell Donna, I say hi as well. Lastly, we miss you too, Craig. Wish you were here with the gang.

Good evening sports fans from the bridge of the Supreme. Today was yet another day off shore. We were busy all day long bendo on tuna mostly  jumping from bird school to bird school with quite a bit of fish on the machines too. Chapparo's group always brings it every year when it comes to putting in time at the rail, even when Chef Mike nearly puts us to sleep with his thick juicy cheese burgers and homemade fries for lunch. Nobody wimped and took a nap after that big plate of food, we were all right back at it keeping the rods bent. That really sums up the day, exceptional tuna fishing and a tasty half pound rosemary chicken dinner with rice, green beans and stuffing topped with whole gralic cloves followed by bannana foster for dessert. All and all great day, beautiful weather and we hope the weather mans forecast stays true for good weather for the next 2 days. Til tomorrow friends, good night to all, and to all a good night.

~~Sep. 14
 Well, we got our tail on today.  We started up there and caught a few, then we went there and had a couple of real nice drifts.  Good tailing on medium sized yellows.  We'll call them 12-14 pounders with a few smaller and a some in the 16 pound range.  We were completely OK with them. I spent my whole time there in the pit with my butt in the air stapling tags on the customers fish while the rest of the crew were gaffing.  After a couple good drifts, and I mean good ones, the fish stopped biting.  No one knows why, they just quit biting so we had to make a move again.  Now if I had remembered there was a Charger game on at that moment it would've been a great time to listen to it being we were making a 3 hour move.  But I forgot all about it.  I was too busy thinking of our next move and the future moves of this trip.  It was a good game too.  If you weren't paying attention we beat the 2014 super bowl champs.  !0 point under dogs.  Beat them up.  That's right Seattle.  Look out nation.

 We didn't catch much when we arrived to our new hot zone.  A couple of handfuls of nice yellowtails and then it got dark so now we sit on anchor.  We can safely fish one more day here before the storm pushes us out of here.  Which direction we'll go?  I'm not sure yet.

Captain Ryan Bostian checked in this evening with an update from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. Today we had 23 passengers catch 27 California Yellowtail, 55 Barracuda and 1 bonito. Very good mixed bag fishing. This is a good opportunity to fish on an uncrowded boat and also enjoy good fishing.

Report 7-23-2016 Good Evening everyone. We cleared the point today around 1 o clock with a beautiful load of mid sized sardines. Immediately we were in the midst of a weird local weather system consisting of a unusual south wind and a choppy south swell. The conditions made it a little rough for the first hour or so, but then started to calm down and we eventually we settled into a nice downhill ride for dinner. Coincidentally around dinner time we came across a couple schools of yellowfin tuna. We made a quick drift before first call and was able to hook and land one. We may have only landed one but the grade of the fish was excellent. A solid 18 lb Tuna, a very refreshing grade of fish compared to the 10 ponders we have been seeming earlier this summer. Hopefully there is something to this and it builds into a legitimate biting school of fish. Very excited to see what the next few days hold. Unfortunately our second to none fish care had the fish spiked, bled, and into the frigid RSW fish hold before the camera was able to make its way down from the wheelhouse. So no picture was taken.We are traveling down tomorrow and will start fishing bright and early.Wish us luck!Team supreme

November 19, 2022 lake murray Fishing Report

July 18 We couldn't get in our groove today. Stops for 1,1,1,1,1. Saw plenty of fish. Nothing I would call a school but descent balls of fish that just wouldn't react for us. And that's all I have to say about that. Arrive depart tomorrow on another 5 day. July 17 We made awful time coming up the line from Cedros last night then all day we got tied up with all the tons of bluefin schools we passed along the way. 60 miles of the fish. We also scratched yellows on the kelps we went by. The albacore evening area moved up 20 miles and we didn't get to the grounds until 3:15.

We did manage to find a couple hungry biting schools of albacore before dark and put some more meat on the boat currently chilling at a comfortable 30 degrees. Weather is fine and we're going to enjoy some delicious lamb chop for dinner and hit the rack. We'll be here tomorrow to finish up the trip. We are far away from home but we'll stay as long as the fish are biting. Sorry Tommy, we might be getting home late on Monday. July 16 For the past 2 weeks if you were a long range boat at Cedros you just rolled up to a certain spot on the island, shut down and made a day of it. Not today, that certain spot was not happening today. We had to fish. It took a while to locate them but around 11:30 we did. 6 schools up at a time. Unfortunately they were not biting fish. We'd stop on a big school for 6, stop on one for 3,1,0,6,12, like that. At 5:30 we stopped on the mother load school and had them almost jumping in the boat they were so thick but yet again, it didn't bite like advertised. We did get quite a few there and hit a couple more schools before dark where we caught some fish. Perfect weather today and should remain that way for at least a couple more days. We're going to take advantage of the glassy sea and head back offshore for the remainder of the trip. Good night. Drew and the famous crew of the Polaris Supreme. July 15 We started off at the night before hot evening bite area with the fleet. We drove 20 miles to far before light. A code boat who had a later jump passed through that area at daylight and found some biting albacore. So the fleet slides up 20 miles. When we got up there we had time for a couple of stops before the door slammed shut. From then until we left, SLOW. We started to slide down. 20 miles later we're back where we started and we see the fish. 1 good stop, 3 short stops and 1 great stop later, we're headed down to the Island for some great yellowtail fishing and sun block wearing weather. Oh yeah, the weather today was just fine. Drew and the crew. July 14 Good afternoon viewers. We arrived at the dock early this morning and weighed up jackpot. 1st was Tim Ryan with a 36.6 albacore. Second was Kirk Kirkpatrick with his 34.6 pounder and bringing up third was Dennis Mc Neely with one at 33.6. We are now rolling down in beautiful much overdue sunny weather. We have a full load of fantastic sardine and passengers eager to use them. I'm just sitting in the wheelhouse starring at my water charts and listening to my code boats trying to figure out where to be tomorrow. We're going to start somewhere offshore tuna fishing. The reports don't sound to great so we might have to do some fishing tomorrow and try and relocate these albacore. The weather forecast looks great so we have that going for us. It's almost seminar time and shortly there after dinner time.
