Good evening everyone, Today we started off the day in kelp land. Finding many nice kelps along a nice water color break. One in particular held a slew of different game fish. Dorado, Wahoo, Yellowtail, and Tuna. Most of them where on the small side, but it was still great fun catching such a variety of fish. Later on we were able to slide inside and finish off the day with some coastal Yellowtail. It was great ending the day with a nice hit on the Yellowtail. Biting the iron very well, adding to the fall 10 day variety pack. We are pointed north at the moment trying to cover some ground to make it in on time Wednesday morning. Will report again tomorrow, Team Supreme

POLARIS SUPREME TRIP UPDATE 09-26-2020 We spent the day looking for Tuna and Wahoo without much luck. We did however get some great wide open Dorado fishing. As usual we only kept a small portion of them. The weather is a little bumpy but OK. Going to try a little nite fishing. The Polaris Supreme Crew!

Good evening friends. Wrapping up the 2011 OTR 10-day trip, the big fish honors go as follows: Matt Kiesse - 193.6 lb. Yellowfin tuna, Lon Mikkelsen 149.4 lb. Yellowfin tuna, and Mike "Wedding Bells" Payne rounds out our top three with his 140.0 lb. Yellowfin tuna. Honorable mentions go to Doug "Stick-Bird" Pineo for his 201.2 lb cow and Yacoob Vaheb caught his personal best of 150.0 lbs. Good going to the boys and most everyone on the boat caught a very nice fish in the 75-125 lb. class. For our two days on the bank, it was decent fishing for those lunker Yellowfin's and if we would've caught what we saw, it would've been a trip for the ages. No shortage of fish around just a shortage of bites and consistency, but we made the most of our chances and ended up with a nice load of big tuna to show for it.

We'd like to issue some thanks to a few individuals aboard this last trip. First, we'd like to thank Mike Payne for bringing some crab for all of the folks to enjoy for a dinner and also for bringing some shirts from Rocky Point Resort in Petersburg, Alaska. Second, we got to thank Ben "Bendo" Meyer for once again putting together a great recipe/picture book and CD to give to the folks. Where he gets the time and energy to do such a magnificent job on that book is beyond me. That thing is pro from front to back. And lastly, Lon Mikkelsen. His enthusiasm towards fishing, trying new tactics, and laid-back attitude makes the trip for all to enjoy. He wants to catch all kinds of fish and it doesn't matter if it's rockcod, squid, cow tuna, or any other species we might fish for; he just loves to fish. Also, he's one of the funniest guys around. Thanks to everyone for joining Lon and Greg once again this year and we hope to see all of you next year. The OTR trip is a "can't miss" trip and if anyone is interested in joining Lon on the Polaris Supreme for next years trip, I have a solid piece of advice for you; book early.

So that is all. We'll be departing this evening for a 6-day Guadalupe Island trip devoting our time to Great White shark research. Our next report will be on Saturday from the cages. Take care and we'll chat with you then.

Hi friends. Not a whole lot to report today. We made a couple of stops for the guys who wanted to fill out their Yellowtail limit and for those who just wanted to do a little catch and release. Other than that, we just ate, read, played cribbage, and took naps the duration of the day and we concluded this evening's dinner with Lon handing out a bunch of OTR gear and countless other goodies to the fine folks aboard. Tommy bypassed a two-hundred bottle of wine for a "Chum King" chumming device that you can send to the bottom, pull a cord, and chum disperses. It looks a lot like those things that when you drive up to the bank teller and you put the money or deposit into the tubes and they shoot off to the teller at Mach speed. I guess it's the gift that keeps on giving because a bottle of wine only gives you fun for one night. Looking back on it, excellent choice, Tommy.

Well, us and Tommy's new toy are going to try to capture some of those tasty Vermilion rockfish and Lingcod for a few hours tomorrow so we'll let you know how things wind up. Our weather is absolutely awesome and we're extremely fortunate to have the sea conditions that we are experiencing right now. We'll be dropping our loops tomorrow morning, wish us luck and we'll report back to you in the evening.

Hi friends. We made it to the grounds first thing this morning and immediately began dropping Yellowtail in the wells. It wasn't great fishing by any means but it was a good pick on 'tails averaging right around the 15-18 lb. mark. After our morning, we looked around for some tuna sign and after locating a nice school on one of the shallows, it wasn't long after we came tight on the anchor that we started hooking some. Problem was, it was mostly Black Skipjack, not cool. After a while of weeding out the junk, our fishing became pretty clean fishing on some school-sized Yellowfin. We caught a healthy catch of these Yellowfin's for the remainder of the afternoon and we also managed to capture a couple of Wahoo for our day. It was a good day for us on the Supreme and along with our good fishing, we also had pretty nice weather to boot. For tomorrow, we'll be traveling for most of the day but I'm sure we'll have some time to do a little Yellowtail and Grouper fishing. With a good load of tuna on the boat for the gang, it's time to start making way up the line and finish out our trip on Yellows and tasty bottom-dwellers.

So that is all. Our weather is a bit sloppy this evening but we'll see what happens tomorrow morning. We'll chat with you at this time tomorrow evening.

Hi folks. Tough day for us as we ventured offshore in search of bigger tuna. Things just weren't right and although we saw sign of fish, it wasn't our day to catch any. With that, we motored up the line to see if we couldn't snag us some Wahoo or find some school-sized tuna. No-go on the tuna but we did troll up a few Wahoo for our day. Our day consisted of beautiful sea conditions but a ton of rain. From about mid-morning all the way until we were finished making bait this evening, it poured on us and although the boat and gear needed a good fresh watering, it got a little old after about hour five of non-stop precipitation. Oh well, it could've been worse, it could've been windy with large seas, or it could've snowed. It's just one of the many elements that we have to deal with while out on the open-ocean.

So that is all. Not too much to report other than we're making our way up the line to do some offshore fishing tomorrow for a variety of species and hopefully, our report will tell a tale of lots of different fish and sunshine. We'll see and wish us luck. We'll chat with you tomorrow.

-Team Supreme-

p.s. Everyone on the boat would like to say congratulations to Herb Yamanaka and the Oregon Ducks. The "luck" was not with the Cardinal on this day, it was all about the Ducks, good going and we miss you and your enthusiasm on this trip! Tell Donna, I say hi as well. Lastly, we miss you too, Craig. Wish you were here with the gang.

Hi friends. Bait-making at 0300 hours this morning went very well us. The bait is on the large side but we're hoping to find some large mouths to feed them to. After only catching a couple of 'tails in the AM, we took to the open ocean and were rewarded with lovely weather that was just what we needed. The seas were still kind of confused but with a light wind, the hunt for kelp paddies and breezers was a pleasurable day aboard the Polaris Supreme.

We jigged up some small yellowfin throughout the day, most of which were released, but we had a couple of standout moments to share. First off, Steven Lowe caught a beautiful wahoo on the troll. Sweet. We also had a kelp paddy that kicked out a bunch of really beautiful mahi-mahi's. It was a little crazy there for a minute. Things almost got out of hand, but you know us, we don't let any fish--especially those silly dorados--get the best of us. After calming the situation down and restoring order, we had a box full of flatheads. Booyah. Our last fish of the kelp was caught by our master of ceremonies, Joe Gigliotti. Joe put down the cards and poker chips for a few moments to land himself a 40 lb. yellowfin. That crazy card shark, he's so savvy! Joe pulled off a veteran move: let all of the other anglers fish off the dorado's and then when we thought the game was over, G-Money played us all for fools and landed himself the token tuna. Nice job, Joe.

So that was how our fishing went today. I can't leave you without letting y'all know about what else went down today: I bronzed. I know, right? After nearly having all of my espresso-brown tan blown off by Hurricane Paul, Momma Nature showed us her love and gave us gorgeous weather and sunshine for the day. Our weather today started out pretty okay but by days end, it was flat calm with just a breath of wind - A+. Just a beautiful day for soaking up the sun and burning fat. That's right. Along with the bronzing, hot dorado action, and awesome weather, I managed to get in a couple hours of getting my swell on. Yeah, I said it. Like I told Gunny today," I wish they made a size large shirt with the sleeves of an extra large." He laughed.

Off topic, once again, I would like to say something. This crew is just dandy. If you don't want to party with us, I don't want to live. We're all about getting stretched, Hunger Games book club meetings (Drew is almost headed for the final book), and living a more healthy lifestyle. We aren't just dieting, we're working on our strength and conditioning too. I'm changing my lifestyle, Mark is changing his lifestyle, and next trip, Drew "Chuck Norris Wears Drew Henderson Pajamas" Henderson is changing his lifestyle. It's fantastic! But not to forget, we're fish-hungry fishing machines as well. What the bow and arrow is to Katniss Everdeen, a rod and reel is exactly the same to us. It's like an extension of our limbs. It's just so natural and pure. So you throw in the fact that we are all some pretty darn good fisherman--even Mark with his swing-for-the-fences style of angling--you've got the ingredients to have yourself just a rollicking good time here on the Supreme. We have fun, we fish, we life a healthier lifestyle, and last but certainly not least, we bronze. Sonny Jim.

For tomorrow, I see no other reason not to workout, bronze, and go catch some 18-22 lb. yellowfin tuna in sunny, windless weather. That's our plan, anyways. If we do well on the yellowfins, we get to do my favorite activity that we do here on the Polaris Supreme: fish for BIG bluefin tuna...and bronze while doing it. See ya.

The team you dream about,

P.S. Joe Gigliotti would like to say hello to his striking daughters Nicki and Alex. There are a lot of crayons in this box that we call "the universe" and you two shine the brightest. Very sweet, Joe. Very sweet indeed.

16 Yellowfin Tuna and 2 Bluefin Tuna for our repeat group today. Mike and his pals did just fine with the live sardine and #25-30 floro leader. We lost only 4 or so fish all day. Looking forward to getting back on it tomorrow. Welcome to Summer!!!
