July 16, 2024 rogue river michigan Fishing Report

ood evening everyone, Today we started in search of Yellowfin Tuna. It seemed that the past days have been a grind for those who have committed to this area. So we woke up today ready to grind. Fortunately we found a school early that wanted to play. So with the ball in our court we were really to put the wood to these school sized fish that were eagerly pouring aboard Polaris Supreme. Absolute chaos to start the day, a perfect way to follow two days of premium yellowtail fishing. We kept at it, getting good scores on these tuna to join the yellows that were chilling in our frigid holds. Eventually we did have to point the boat towards home and call it a trip, but what a way to end! I would like to thank Ron for putting together this charter and everyone for joining us and putting the screws to these fish when it counted! We will be in San Diego tomorrow dark and early at 5:30 to offload the bounty and come out for another. Until next time, Team Supreme

July 28th, 2010 Good evening to all.

Today was our final day of our SoCal Tuna Club 5 day trip and there was only one thing on our minds...Albacore. As of now, Albacore are still on our minds because we didn't quite connect with what we had hoped for. We had a few stops throughout the day that made our day not all for lost, but overall it was a slow day. Everyone in the zone were concentrated on a tiny little area with the hopes that the late afternoon float would be grand. The float, or lack there of, was definitely not grand.

Although we did see a couple massive schools of Albacore late in the day, we never saw the whites of their eyes. No boils, no hookups, no go. Encouraging to see such a nice volume of fish but discouraging to not get any response whatsoever. Scores for the day varied and we were smack dab right in the middle. Let my clarify, it wasn't like some guys clobbered them and some guys didn't. It was a slow day of fishing for all the boats down here and the numbers weren't so great. Needless to say, we feel very fortunate to have caught what we caught. At dark, we called it a trip and began heading for the barn. The best bite of the day was in the galley for sure. Our traditional final night feast of filet and lobster dinner was enjoyed by all. Our thanks goes out to our fine passengers today for always being on call to throw a bait in the water and keeping a good attitude towards the day. We'll be arriving tomorrow morning around 7:00 am to unload, refuel, resupply, reload and do it all over again with Tom Chaparro and the Stern Hogs. Thanks for checking in. Have a pleasant evening. Richie and the gang.

July 27th, 2010 Howdy gang.

Today's day from the offshore grounds was nothing to write home about but we're going to do it anyways. The numbers weren't the greatest but we sure did see a lot of life in the area. Birds picking on the bait from the surface and Bluefin tuna attacking from the bottom. We saw tons of fish and only managed to capture a handful. If this stuff decides to get on the bite, it's going to be a lot of fun for us. For now, we'll just keep our fingers crossed until then. We'll be finishing off our trip on the hunt for Albacore for our last day. Our weather is improving as we speak and we're currently enjoying a nice ride. Wishing you all the best and hopefully you're doing the same for us. Richie and the fine crew of the Polaris Supreme. July 26th, 2010 Good evening friends. Here's a rundown of our adventures to "Yellowtail Land" for the 25th / 26th of July. We arrived to our first destination just after dinner and began the dropper loop assault. Well, it wasn't quite an assault, but we did manage 7 quality yellowtail between 25-30 lbs. The gang fished hard throughout the night but sleep ultimately was needed, so we made the decision to bust a move and start off elsewhere in the morning. The morning time brought us cloud cover and breeze. Not bad by any means, but it was a little cold for my liking. Anyways, what was not cold was the fishing we enjoyed for the next few hours. Steady drift fishing for yellowtail in the 14-20 lb. range and that was before we decided to drop anchor. After we came tight on the anchor, it was GAME ON! Now I know you might be asking "Richie. What was the preferred method of fishing for these fish?" Well, today it was having a live bait or a jig with a hook on the end of it. Pretty simple. They bit very, very well and just to top off a stellar morning of fishing, the skies were sunny and the seas were flat calm. Awesome. After Chef Schooler kicked out his signature Carnitas Taco Plate with all the fixin's, we pulled anchor, gave up our spot to our fellow code boat, and boogie'd out of the area to focus solely on tuna fishing for the next couple of days. Now our plan is to go and catch lots of albacore and lots of bluefin. We'll be sticking to the plan, but it's all up to the tuna to make it happen. Currently, our weather is a little choppy but it's nothing we can't handle. Wish us luck and stay tuned. Richie and the members of TEAM SUPREME. P.S. Drew says hi mom. July 25th Sunday Of shore fishing just isn't working out south of the border lately. Weather was good and catching was bad untill dark when we slid into the island for a little night bite on 25 to 30 lb Yellowtail. It was just a taste of what we are hoping for tomorrow. Our Southern California Tuna Club Anglers got to bed around 11:00 pm and we are off to set up for the morning. The local boys scratched up a afternoon after what was a brutally slow morning of albacore fishing up north. We are hoping that is on the up swing for the end of our trip. Good luck tomorrow and find me some fish. Good night and thanks for tuning in. Tommy and Crew. July 24th Saturday Off we go on a 5 day Trip. Our Charter head Dr. Al Hermer has put together a Limited load group of only 20 anglers for this adventure. As the end of the day approached we received news of one boat with over 100 Albacore and 4 others in the 60s. With the inconsistency in the bite we decided to head for the yellow tail grounds first. The weather is a little choppy but our ride is good heading down as our anglers dine on prime rib. Tomorrow will be a off shore day. We have a nice load of bait and are looking forward to putting it to good use. Thanks Tommy and crew

~~Oct.16-20
 So for the last few days, I was either too busy to write a report or just too tired.  I knew these blogs wouldn't be making it out here until tomorrow anyway so I figured I would just do a 4 day report to explain the remainder of our trip down below so here it goes.

 When I left off, the sharks backed off and allowed us to have a great afternoon and we were hoping the sharks would do the same thing they did last year after the first couple of days which is leave.  That didn't happen.  It was a sharky trip for sure.  Brown Reef Sharks were in the picture for the remainder of the time we were down there.  Sometimes they were relentless and we'd have to pull anchor and go trolling for wahoo and other times they would back off just enough to allow us to scratch at the tunas and then other times they would back off completely.  They weren't tuna eaters though.  They let us wind in what we hooked, but they loved our kite baits.

 Anyways, we still had an excellent trip down there sharks or no sharks.  There were a lot of windows of opportunity and there were some slow windows as well.  There was almost always a window where we would get at least two cows before sunrise, and after that it never stayed consistent.  If we didn't need to sleep it would've been convenient.  I know we missed plenty of tuna bites in the dark hours through out the night but that's when we would sleep.  Like I said though we had an excellent trip and here are the numbers to prove it.

 130 yellowfin tuna and 60 wahoo for 8 guys for 6 days.  54 tuna kept.  11 over 200 lb's, 5 that may go when we weigh them on the dock scale, 6 between 170-180 and the rest were 100-150 pounds with much fish being in the 120-130 pound class.  We also released 76 of those too!  One release estimated to be around 200 pounds and several in the 150 pound range and like I said, many in the 120-130 pound range.  Our largest was 240 and next in line was a 234 pounder kept.

 Here are the team jackpot totals: 1st place goes to Charlie and Craig with 2 fish totaling 453 pounds.  2nd went to George and Scott with 2 totaling 414.  George also had 5 tuna over 200 pounds by the way.  One per day besides the last day.  3rd place went to the Jer-bear and JC with 399 pounds, and Brian and Bernie finished just behind them with 396 pounds.  None of this is official.  We still need to weigh them oin land.

 And that's basically how fishing was down there.  Here are some things that stand out to me while we were down there.  First of all I'd like to talk about KC.  I'm not saying he was scared, he just didn't seem too pumped on fighting one of these fish we call cows.  He wasn't the first or fifth for that matter to jump on a spot on the kite for example when one was available.  On the third day it couldn't be avoided.  He got up on that kite and when he did this particular time he hooked a big one and he handled it as well as anyone.  I mean he kicked that fishes @$$.  He came to battle and he won.  It taped out as a 193 pounder.  After that it wasn't hard to get KC up on the kite when a spot was presented.  It went from where the heck is KC, to him not leaving the rail at all.

 I let Mark know the Raiders lost.  I did it in a mean way too.  His birthday was the 16th I believe, and Chef Mike baked him a cake and we all sang happy birthday and when it was over, I gave him my birthday present which is spilling the beans on lying about the Raiders beating the Chargers.  Ha ha Mark.

 The weather was a lot less steamy the last few days down there.  It was still hot, but once the clouds went away it didn't feel like a sauna there anymore.  Although myself and a few others got the worse case of burnt lips we ever had.  I did it in a dumb way too.  I knew I should go get my chap stick from my room on the first day down there but my lips did;t feel like they were getting chapped so I thought, because of the humidity my lips weren't drying out and I didn't need protection.  Dumb, stupid and idiotic.  My lips may not have dried out but they still got as burnt as ever.

  So that's it.  We now travel for a few days.  The crew has plenty to do.  Clean, clean clean and sleep.  The passengers will be sleeping and celebrating a wonderful trip.  We'll be trying to break up the ride on our last day of travel by looking for a dorado kelp but that's still not for a couple more days.

Ryan Bostian called in with this report for the San Diego. "We went out on an offshore fishing trip with 18 anglers. We caught full Mexican limits of Yellowtail. We had limits real early in this trip. It took us 2 or 3 kelps to catch the limits. We spent the rest of the day looking around for Tuna or Dorado. We managed to catch 6 Dorado. We saw some Bluefin tuna but we were unable to get it to bite. Things are looking good down here guys. We're fishing 20 to 40 miles from home. The fishing action is right in our wheelhouse in terms of distance.

"If you'd like to join us this is absolutely the best time of year. The Yellowtail moved up to our area very quickly and it sounds like other fish are working their way up. If you'd like to make reservations call Seaforth sportfishing at 619-224-3383.

 The ball stopped rolling for us today.  We got it rolling briefly but then it hit a hill again.  We started where we left off last night.  We weren't alone.  We just weren't seeing the schools on the edge of the fleet so we mosied our way up to the next area and we were late to that party.  So again we mosied our way up and at 1:30 we were still skunked.  We got off on our own and then finally spotted a breezer up and got on it and it bit pretty well for a while.  We caught 50, mostly the good grade yellowfin before they quit biting.  After that we really didn't see much for the rest of the day.  It was our day today.  Hopefully we can turn it around tomorrow.

 If you think about it though, the fish we caught yesterday were free, so if you add it to what we caught today, we had a stellar day.  I like to think of it like that.

 We're going to try to catch some bait tonight.  We have enough for tomorrow, but if we have a good day like I expect, we may be out of position to catch bait the following night so we're going to try and get it done tonight.

Today we spent our final day offshore. We had a few hours to try for some kelp patty Tuna and Dorado. We tried multiple kelp's for nothing. However we did have one kelp patty that was an absolute aquarium. It was wide open for the smaller yellowfin tuna. It was incredible action to end on. We also caught a few bonus Dorado as well. A fantastic Finnish to a five day trip.

 Last night I was planning my next move way too early.  I thought by 11:00 this morning we would be fixed up on both dorado and tuna so I was worrying about what I would do for the rest of the day.  The old counting your chickens before the eggs hatch scenario.  That never works out.  By 11:00 this morning we had 2 dorado on board and hadn't even seen a tuna fish yet.  It was an afternoon thing today.  I prefer morning things.  I like getting the sweat off early.  It doesn't always work that way though and have I ever let you all down?  No need to answer that.

 Anyways, before lunch we found our first dorado kelp and it was good for a round.  After lunch we found a school of those little tunas and did well while they were there but short lived.  A couple hours of looking later we bumped into that same school 5 miles away from where we originally saw it and maybe we got on the meat better that time because it didn't go away.  We left them biting.  The best way to leave a school.  Those things were chewing and coming on fast.  They were biting as good as is possible.

 After that we found a couple more kelps for a dozen more dorado and then poof, it was dark.  So we're headed home and we'll be spending Sunday night with our loved ones and coming back out Monday for 1 1/2 days.  Go Chargers!
