Holy moly was it hot and humid today. Starting today early the sweat was on. My mom brought the little one down and the poor little girl was sweating worse than me. She probably doesn't care though. We left on our annual Bogart 2 day trip. So we fished a little this afternoon and we'll fish tomorrow. We got a couple tanks of anchovy today with just a few sardine mixed in. We have a bit of mackerel left over that we'll use. We fished for yellows this afternoon. We reached the honey hole at 4:00. Of course conditions did a complete 180. Current wise. The water was still blue and warm but the current was opposite to what the yellers have enjoyed here as of late. So we saw no sign of yellowtail. After a couple anchor jobs we gave up on them and anchored in tight to the kelp and we caught some assorted rockfish and bass and such. Now we're headed out to who knows where. I have a couple places in mind. I'm going to wait and here the evening reports from the other boats before deciding.
There is a few things as of late I wanted to tell y'all about that I forgot to. I finally saw the green flash! Kind of cool I guess. I wasn't looking for it this time. Maybe that's the ticket. I just happened to look over and poof, the sun turned green for a flash. The lightening show the other night was amazing. Especially the part I missed while I was in bed sleeping. And we saw a wave cloud I think. I think it was a wave cloud. It looked like a wave rolling through. Or a side ways tornado. There was 0 wind, and all the sudden that thing came through and it got super windy but just for 30 seconds or less and then it was gone and the wind went back to 0. Pretty cool I thought. Done.
Hello there Polaris Supreme fans,
Today started off with a bang! around daybreak a 110 pounder comes over the rail! and a few other smaller grade tuna were landed, then out of nowhere we loose our current but that didn't stop us, We put out the jigs and went into search mode and found what we were looking for WAHOO!!, willing to bite and keep us busy most of the morning and into the late afternoon, with still no current and the wahoo backing off somewhat, back into search mode again we started seeing bird schools in a a different area that looked very promising, we took a tour of the new area and saw plenty of life! In this new area even the bait wanted to bite, so after filling two tanks of big bait we settled in for the night with high hopes for the early morning bite!
Gunny and the Supreme Team!
Arrive/depart. A quick one too. We were out before 9:30. We got our bait and we were gone. We started fishing after lunch. We had one little area that was loaded up with 5 pound skipjack. We stopped a few times to let everyone pull and jerk on something and practice following there fish around the boat and stuff. We had a couple kelps with a few small yellows we caught. We unfortunately made it to our destination before dark. I say unfortunately because we were hoping to bump into something sooner. We saw only a few little dabs of tuna while we had light. I mean just a few fish, and they didn't bite. We're currently anchored in the cove here and we're enjoying a nice prime rib dinner and I think we'll sleep well tonight.
It sounded like it was a better day around here. Not just catching wise but fishing too. Never thought I'd say that but what I mean is there was a bigger spread of fish seen today. They weren't all seen in the same honey hole like most of last week. We have high hopes for tomorrow. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going on break.
The ball stopped rolling for us today. We got it rolling briefly but then it hit a hill again. We started where we left off last night. We weren't alone. We just weren't seeing the schools on the edge of the fleet so we mosied our way up to the next area and we were late to that party. So again we mosied our way up and at 1:30 we were still skunked. We got off on our own and then finally spotted a breezer up and got on it and it bit pretty well for a while. We caught 50, mostly the good grade yellowfin before they quit biting. After that we really didn't see much for the rest of the day. It was our day today. Hopefully we can turn it around tomorrow.
If you think about it though, the fish we caught yesterday were free, so if you add it to what we caught today, we had a stellar day. I like to think of it like that.
We're going to try to catch some bait tonight. We have enough for tomorrow, but if we have a good day like I expect, we may be out of position to catch bait the following night so we're going to try and get it done tonight.
Today was awesome. We woke up drifting catching fish and that's about what we did until dark. I'm not kidding you. We moved the boat just a handful of times but never for more then 10 minutes. It was drifting with always at least one on the hook. In the morning until after lunch it was mostly bluefin in the 30-45 pound range with the occasional 60-80 pounder. I have to tell you that that's a much more manageable grade. It's a much better fish to start off on than those 60-80 pounders. Don't get me wrong, you know I love catching those beauts but they make a much better cherry than ice cream if you know what I mean. We had that kind of day where if we catch them tomorrow it will be the cherry on top. The rest of the day we got into yellowfin tuna mode and it was game on for those fish. Tommy decided to save our sardine on board it being they were feeding on the anchovy that went over the side so that's what we used. Chovy baby. I can't ever remember fishing anchovy for tuna on this boat. I have to go back to my mission bay days to remember that but I didn't forget how to do it. I wrote this in the beginning of the season and I'll write about it again. If you're coming on a future trip, please remember to bring the lost art of anchovy fishing skills. A big part of that is an anchovy rod and reel. Something light that's meant for 20-25 pound test with a nice free spool to help you toss those anchovies away from the boat. I hate to say it but if that means you need to bring your coffee grinder so be it.
The weather is still good! Man I hope this can hold up for at least my buds on the upcoming Heil 5 day trip leaving the day after tomorrow. We're staying put right here for our last day fishing tomorrow. We're hoping we can get more of the 60-80 pounders tomorrow but we will be stoked with the 30-45's as well.
