All I can say is we tried. The baiting went well last night and we arrived to cow town before sunrise. Until 3:30 in the afternoon we didn't see much. We fished hard though once again. Most stayed at the rail. We tried 4 anchor jobs, and a bunch of drifts but like I said, until 3:50 we didn't see much. At 3:50 though things woke up but unfortunately it was short lived and we have nothing to show for it. It gets dark so early now. We saw 3 good spots of 200-300 pound tuna blowing out of the water and 1 really good sonar school of 50 pounders but we could get no reaction from them. At least we got to see them. It's better than never seeing them at all.
I felt the vibe on board and I know the passengers want some action so we're going to try and deliver. We'll be running up tonight and we're going to give "The Ridge" another try tomorrow. We'll go for action and then we still have wahoo to catch.
We drifted most of the morning until around 9 or so. We drifted due to us catching fish. We caught a whole lot of fish this morning. They weren't the same 20-25+ pounders we've been getting. There were a few of those, but these were about half that size. It wasn't what we were hoping for but they were still fun. The guys were having a blast. They were getting some practice at the whole tuna fishing thing, picking a good bait, where to drop in, follow your fish... And they got to use some of there tags as well.
After that we thought it would be a great idea to make a few hour run and get to San Clemente Island to catch those big yellows we caught there a couple of trips ago. In theory it sounded great, but we didn't catch very many yellows. We ended up bailing on it and looking for some bluefin that's been hanging around there. We saw one pretty good spot around there but they wouldn't bite. At dark we ended where we'll start tomorrow. Some boats had some pretty good days here today on a very good grade of yellowfin along with some of that 25-50 pound bluefin as well. Oh how I hope we can get in on some of that tomorrow.
Time will tell. Cross your fingers at home. We'll take some good luck anywhere we can.
Saturday Aug. 4th, 2012
Hello from the bridge of the fabulous Polaris Supreme.
Fishing for Saturday was another mixed bag out here on the offshore tuna grounds.
Like yesterday, it started out slow, but by mid day we had found our stride and started connecting with those beautiful 35-45 lb yellowfin tuna. We scratched at them all afternoon and by the end of the day, we had put another fantastic day together. We also came upon a nice school of Blufin to cap things off.
The rack of lamb dinned with all the trimmings was a great way to end things. Chef Schooler has been fatting us up nicely.
Weather is still good and knowing the potential for Sunday, well were pretty pumped up!
Check back tomorrow for a detailed recap.
