It was raining wahoo around the Polaris Supreme today. It wasn't raining wahoo on the Polaris Supreme, just around it. We scratched out a good day though. I told myself if we caught 40 wahoo today, it would be worth the run down here. We caught 46. It felt like we should of had 200, and with all the fish we lost today, that might not be an exaggeration. We're just 5 shy of 100 for the trip. If you add up all the halves and heads we wound in today, we might have a hundred. The sharks were really bad out here today. You wouldn't have wanted to go for a swim. I say it was raining wahoo today because they were flying out of the water most everywhere you looked chasing flying fish and such. It was an awesome sight to see. I have never seen anything like it in my 15 years of long ranging.
We've really put together a very nice trip so far. I wouldn't mind a little more tuna and some yellowtail. We've left the stones and we're now headed up for the remainder of the trip. We're going to check out the baja coast tomorrow in search of all the species and get in position for the rest of the trip as well.
The San Diego out of Seaforth Landing in San Diego,CA checked in with us today:
7 yellowtail 150 assorted bottom critters. Still seeing enough yellowtail to get a big hit just waiting for them to act up.
The old adage “I’d rather be lucky than good” was the story for us today. Before we even fired up the Binos our autopilot found us a kelp patty that kicked out 66 yellowtail (12-25lbs). After our kelp the weather kicked up substantially making it very difficult to work. We did however see some tuna but did not get a bite. A 40 lb flyline setup was the best today.
