Yesterday we had a travel day. It was a little bumpy and choppy coming up the line. The passengers just relaxed and enjoyed a fresh tuna sandwich and Ceasar salad for lunch and for dinner we were treated to crab stuffed chicken on rice with a black bean sauce and grilled squash on the side. Really good. This morning we are still traveling and it is still bumpy. It looks like it is nicer up above and we should have a nice afternoon and a few hours of fishing before we have to head in. We will be a the dock at 6:00 am Wednesday morning.
We have a last minute cancellation on our trip that departs tomorrow.
It is Don Fischbeck's annual 5 day charter. Give Susan or Don a call if you can get away and come fish.

The first good catch of wahoo arrived with skipper Drew Henderson and his 20 anglers aboard the Polaris Supreme October 28. Over 100 wahoo were caught, and 65 came on a single wild day of fishing at the top end of The Ridge on the Dennis Bunker Memorial trip. Fishing was good for other species as well, but the wahoo drew all the oohs and ahs from the spectators at Fisherman's Landing, as many looked to be over 50 pounds.
"We got the job done," wrote Drew on his internet report. "The morning looked very bad. There was wind and a choppy confused sea. That, combined with no fish, led to hopeless thoughts. I don't know why, but after lunch the whole entire bank we were
fishing lit up with life.
"It didn't take long before we quit fishing tuna and put our sinkers on. We have everything you would hope and ask for on a ten-day trip except one thing, the cow tuna. The storm below is dying. Ourselves and three other boats are going to look for them. I'll be cuddling with my horseshoe tonight. I'm sure they will too."
Rick Bynum of Sacramento won first place, for an 80-pound yellowfin tuna. He said he bagged it with a sardine on a 3/0 Eagle Claw hook on 50-pound fluorocarbon leader, 60-pound P-Line and 80-poundSpectra backing. All of it was on a TLD 30 reel and a Seeker Black Steel 6465 XXH rod.
"It was fun!" added Bynum. "It took a half-hour."
Ddaze Phuong of Orange was second, for a 66.4-pound wahoo, and Mike Grella of Sylmar won third place for a 63-pound wild wahoo.
"We saw a little dab of big tuna one day," reported skipper Henderson, "but they wouldn't come up and play."

We had a great first day of fishing. Full of variety and excitement. Today we mainly caught school sized Yellowfin Tuna and Yellowtail. However there were some Nice Dorado and Grouper mixed in as well. There is a lot of skipjack and small tuna bi catch, but we are able to weed through it for the keeper fish.
Tomorrow we will have our sights set on Wahoo and Tuna.
Wish us luck,

Fishing yesterday was absolutely fantastic. The grade of albacore that we were catching was beautiful with half being 30-40 lbs. and the other half averaging 22 lbs. Weather yesterday and today is excellent. This morning we are already into albacore, blue fin and yellow fin. Looks like a another great day on the water. Check our schedule if you want to come out and get into some of this good fishing.
Thanks for checking in.

Captain Ryan Bostian called in late tonight with an update from their most recent trip to the Coronado Islands. We have been fishing in shallow water and it is creating a high causality rate. The majority of our fish have been caught on a fly lined bait. We recommend a short top shot of Blackwater Fluro. We are also catching some fish on Yo Yo irons and Surface Irons too. The majority of the fish are in the 20 to 25 pound class but today we did catch a few 10 pounders. The San Diego is running daily trips to the Coronado Islands and you can book online at our website or at Seaforth Landing. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What a brutally slow morning. We drove around until 2 pm. and had only
released one 190 lb., and four 50 lb. tuna. It was beginning to look
like we were going to miss. Then we found the boomer sonar school of
cows. They bit full speed, eight going at a time for two hours before
they slowed down. Here is the result of those two hours. Scott
released a 185 lb., and kept a 180 lb., 187 lb., and 231 pounder. Bob
released a 180 lb., and kept a 210 pounder. Al released a 170 lb., and
kept a 210 lb., and a 211 lb. tuna. Craig released a 170 lb. and a 185
lb. tuna. Roger kept a 160 lb., 170 lb., and 180 pounder. Sheridan
released a 180 lb., 185 lb., and kept a 187 lb. tuna. Tom released a
175 lb., 195 lb., and kept a 228 pounder. George released a 180 lb.,
190 lb., and kept a 213 pounder. So what was a bad day turned into an
awesome day in just two hours. It was so fun. We had to hang up our
jock straps and sun visors today and change into warmer apparel. It was
a little cool, breezy, and started to get choppy late. Lunch was
stuffed bell peppers with marinara sauce. Hors d'oeuvres were sushi,
sashimi and corn dogs. Dinner was New York steaks. One more day to fish.
