Nice 2018 Guadalupe Yellowfin.
Good evening and thanks again for tuning Polaris Supreme fans. What an excellent day today! The early morning hours were spent doing some looking around at different spots deciding where we wanted to get established for tuna fishing. The currents didn't really want to cooperate at first, but eventually we found what looked best and gave it a shot. It was a little on the slower side till things started to wake up, then the guys started to scratch away. We eventually switched gears into wahoo mode and that was a great choice. The remainder of the day we had our running shoes on chasing skinnies all around the boat. Stop after stop, they kept coming over the rail. The tax man had to take his piece of the pie of course, losing more than just a few to sharks, but never the less, I still call it an amazing day of skin fishing. We all look forward to many more days like today before we end the trip. For those wondering about the weather, you should be jealous. I don't think there is nicer weather anywhere in the U.S. It nothing short of perfect out here.
A+ fishing and top notch food, what more could you ask for on a long range trip. All of the guys are having a great time. As always, thanks for taking a few minutes to check in and don't forget, even though we are out here on the water, we will still be representing at the Long Beach Fred Hall Show this year. Make sure you stop by our booth and say hi to our crew up there. Till tomorrow, tight lines.

Hi friends. Nothing like a two-day trip, pulling on 50-75 lb. Bluefin tuna beyond normal two-day ranges. It just goes to show the value of these two-day trips leaving around noon, fishing all day the next day and then arriving back to San Diego in the late morning. Everything worked out for us on this trip and while fishing for the majority of the boats out here was tough (lots of schools were located but did not bite), we got lucky and found a really nice school of those beautiful Bluefin tuna's. We drifted all afternoon on this particular school and if you wanted a chance to hook one of these trophies, it wasn't rocket science to do so. It was some good fishing for a while there and although our casualties were high, we managed a very healthy score on the Bluefin along with a few "Cedros-grade" Yellowtail off of a kelp. We somehow managed to give every angler on-board the experience of a five-day trip in one day. Just going to show everyone, the advantage of these two-day trips.
So that is all. We'll be arriving to San Diego tomorrow around 1100 hours and we'll be taking a few days off before we get back on a couple of short range trips. Be sure to be on the lookout for more of these two-day trips in the near future. Thanks for checking in.
Polaris Supreme Trip Up Date 11-17-2013
Another productive day of scratch fishing here aboard the Polaris Supreme, off of the Baja Mexico coast. A bit more variety than days past, even to the point of stumping the marine biologist passengers aboard in identifying a bottom dwelling creature or two that were incidental catches. Anything that comes aboard that stumps the boat is typically referred to generically as a "snarf" of some type. Seems as though there's always something new to discover on these trips.
Our weather continues to behave, and we're loving that. I don't believe that we've had 10 knots of wind at any point over the past eight days. We couldn't ask for better weather. The sea temperature is dropping slightly as we head into the more northerly latitudes, though. We were up bright and early this morning, before daybreak, and watched as the moon set in the distance, glimmering off of the calm ocean. It looked like a French impressionist painting, except that we were experiencing it, and it was all around us, rather than someone else's rendition hanging on a museum's wall.
Crewmember Mark modeled his hardhat briefly this afternoon. I think it's in anticipation of his getting ready to do something really stupid, and being sentenced by the rest of the crew to wearing it for an extended period of time. Think of it as the Polaris Supreme's version of a dunce cap. Kristin, I apologize for spelling your name incorrectly yesterday. Happy anniversary AGAIN to both you and Captain Drew.
Dinner tonight is fresh wahoo, with some rice and green beans, I believe. I only eat the dinners to get my hands on the incredible desserts that they've been serving. Not really ... I only eat the desserts to make Captain Tommy feel less guilty for his indulgences.
11 Yellowtail, 4 Yellowfin and a #147 Bluefin. Nice day for Brandon and his friends.
Long range fishing. We're back. We departed today on a wonderful 10 day trip. An ultra limited load 10 day trip. A fisherman's dream. We got some bait. We loaded up on half 6-8 inch beauts, and then half 4-6 inchers that will chum well and fish well enough. The weather right now couldn't be better. We're just rolling down hill enjoying life. We got some rest and did part 1 of our 3 part seminars. We did that today because we're fishing tomorrow morning. It's been pretty darn good school grade tuna fishing where we'll be in the morning lately, and we're going to try and get a starter kit tomorrow. We're just hoping the fore casted wind will hold up long enough for that. Yup, the wind is coming and it doesn't look like it's going to be very nice for the next few days. Oh well. It is what it is. We'll be doing some traveling through it on a downhill course but it's going to end up effecting some of our early fishing conditions for sure. But then it goes away and becomes lovely again for hopefully the rest of the trip. I'm looking forward to writing to you folks out there the next 10 days. I hope I have nothing but good things to write. Time will tell.
