Good evening folks from the bridge of the Polaris Supreme. Let me just start off by telling you how beautiful of a night it is out here. First of all the ocean is flat calm. Just a super light breeze and no sea. It's almost like we're in the bay right now. The moon is full, huge and bright as can be and it's lighting up the night.
We left today on an Eric Rogger 5 day charter. I think it's in the 30's on number of consecutive years he's been doing this one so our hat goes off to him. Owner/operator Tommy is back on board so I'll be running as second captain this trip. I think the sardines grew about 90 percent in length and weight since the last time we got bait 3 days ago. They're lunkers. They'll make great yellowtail bait and I'll bet the bluefin will dig them, we'll have to see about them yellowfin.
I guess you can tell by my questioning of the last paragraph that we didn't get in them this afternoon. The darn fish just moved too far away for us to reach on our departure day today. We got there minutes late but there was some pretty darn good hits this evening so we're excited about tomorrow.
Slow morning, strong afternoon was how the fishing went down today. We had 2 fish by lunch time and I was feeling the pressure. Thankfully at noon the sonar went boom boom and we went sideways for a few hours. Let me try and give you a picture of how things looked out here. The fishing was wide open on a mixed school of skipjack and yellowfin. We had 23 passengers and basically 23 rent rods. Chaos out here on the Polaris Supreme. And by chaos I mean fun, fun, fun. At any given time we had half the passengers with fish on while the other half were tying on hooks. It was pretty funny looking at 12 people at a time in the center of the boat tying on hooks. Usually our customers have 10+ rods with hooks on them ready to go but all our anglers had one.
Here is how I describe stand up tuna fishing. It's not like freshwater angling. Freshwater angling is more like an art. It can be very peaceful and relaxing. You use light tackle and finesse. With stand up tuna fishing, we can hook 24 fish at one time with every fish swimming a different direction with every crew member screaming out directions. Gaffs are flying, reels are screaming and lines are snapping and it's some of the funnest $%^& in the world. That's what today made me want to write. We had a good time.
We're on our way in already and we leave again tomorrow for 8 days. See you then.
Started where we found fish yesterday, it had slid up and out. Found big Bluefin right away, hooked one and lost is 15' from the gaff. Chased Yellowfin most of the day, managed only 2, but we were happy to capture those. Offshore again tommorrow and it's a new day!!
