Hello everybody. Good times this morning on the sea anchor. Biting bluefin tuna with a smattering of nice yellowtail to start off our day made breakfast taste that much better for everyone who attended the meal call. A half pound breakfast burrito tastes just a little better after pulling on fish for a couple hours after the sunrises. Anyhow, we had another decent day today of catching bluefin and yellowfin, mostly on blind jig strikes, and shaking off "neck-tie" yellowtail and dorado's to fill in the gaps when the tuna had their noses in the mud. For the most part, their noses stayed in that mud but when they did pop up, we made the most of it with some quality tuna fish.
Another solid day made for the decision to head coastal and see if we can't find us some yellowtail's with some size to them. We'll give this offshore scene another try later but for now, we're going to get out of the wind for a bit and give the anglers a change of scenery. We'll fill you in on our day tomorrow evening. Take care.
Captain Aliyar called in with us today from the Polaris Supreme:
We are on our way home after a 1.5 Day with excellent Bluefin fishing. We have limits of Bluefin Tuna up to 115 pounds with the majority in the 40-50 pound range. We had a stop last night in the dark and caught 30 Bluefin with the flat falls.
We have a bunch of 1.5 Day trips and 3 Day trips open for April.
Next open party trip departs on Sunday, April 11th at 7PM for a 1.5 Day trip.
We started our morning off again in the local bluefin zone. Things felt a little better. There were only about half the boats that were there the day before. It had a much less claustrophobic feel to it. Unfortunately the bluefin didn't seem to care. It was on the slow side. In 4 hours we managed 9 of them with 20 yellowfin to go along with them. We left for the day and looked around for schools. We scratched here and there throughout the day. We had some reports of spots of 100+ pounders up so we made it there for the evening hit but never found a school of those. We did catch some nice grade yellowfin though so with those and the sign of the 100 + pounders we know where we're starting tomorrow. But first things first, we're going to run into the beach and try for bait tonight and as I write this we just finished up and we're headed back out with a couple tanks of mackerel and a couple tanks of sardine that we still have for ammo.
Good evening folks. We started this morning off with our efforts toward making some bait but just couldn't get it to bite so we switched gears and got into fishing mode. The guys put 7 yellowfin on the deck then it was wahoo time. For our efforts, we were rewarded with 20 nice skin for the day. No complaints about that. We even managed to land a few more tuna in the middle of of trolling around. When the hoo decided to move on, it was right back to tuna fishing for the rest of the afternoon. All in all, the guys put together a 30 fish day, not bad at all.
Chef Mike and Gringo in the galley still continue to please with todays lunch being a homemade crab bisque along side a stuffed portabello mushroom and ending the day with Mikes famous Polaris Supreme style cashew crusted fresh wahoo, rice pilaf and snow peas the could have been served in any fine dining restraunt. Everyone is geared up for tomorrow and ready to go. So we'll check back in tomorrow night.
