What's good, people. There are two kinds of Sinclairs in this world, Upton and Matthew. We had both today. Our fishing was Upton Sinclair-style, real good, and we have Matthew Sinclair and his mustache to help us on deck this trip. We caught all of the major species today and we even got our bronze on. First of the season! You farmers and your tans were no match for the Baja sun that we soaked up today. It was hot and flat out here, check the pictures if you don't believe me. Polaris Supreme. Come to think of it, ever since I took my shirt off, the fish wouldn't stop jumping into the boat until I buttoned her back up at days end. Ouch. Anyhow, awesome fishing at the Ridge today and just when we thought it was all said and done, Tommy "Black Eyes" Miles found a kelp at five miles that kicked out all the flatheads we could handle. Never underestimate the blackhawk and his powerful vision. Oh yeah baby, I done told y'all once to get on our level and I don't like to repeat myself. Ronny and the boys are so pumped right now. Big yellowfin, big bluefin, small yellowfin, small bluefin, big dorado, small dorado, big yellowtail, and small yellowtail. Oh yeah, we even hooked a really nice striped marlin today too. Abbey Wombat (the U.S. womens soccer star) couldn't be more proud of us right now. God Bless America.
So what's the plan for tomorrow? I don't know, I'm just a deckhand but I'll ask the skipper ... skipper says it's a secret. Intriguing. We'll report back tomorrow.
Well, our best fishing today came from the zone where all of our offshore fishing has been this year. No surprise there. I wish we would have stayed in that zone longer, but for the past week, anyone on there last day of there trip has been complaining about there speed going up. "Oh it's soo slow", "we're driving through mud", "make sure you give yourself plenty of extra time", etcetera, etcetera. So we planned on that. We fished with our watch today. But that never happened. We never did slow down. Unfortunately, by planning on it, it put us in this years desert zone. The zone with no fish. Beautiful water, no fish. But things have to change right? Right. Just not today. Oh well. At least our first 2 days were good ones. Oh, and the weather was good. That always helps.
We'll be in tomorrow and Tommy will be coming back out for 5. I'm going home. What will I do? Spend every minute with my beautiful daughter except for the 4 1/2 hours spent on the golf course. I will miss writing to you folks though. I enjoy telling you what's on my mind. I sugar coat nothing. See you all in 5 days.
Captain Aliyar called in with us today from the Polaris Supreme:
We just got tied up from a 1.5 Day. We had a pretty good trip out there and ended with 28 Bluefin Tuna from 30-110 pounds. We saw a really good sign of fish out there, so that’s pretty encouraging. We did see some of that bigger grade fish, but only got a few.
We are sold out for the month of April but we have some spots in May. Give Lindsay a call 619-706-3634 or check us out online.
July 14 and 15 all in one.
We fished the 14th offshore in some haven't been fished in waters for a while and we found plenty of tuna but they were all small. For the most part it's what the grade of yellowfin is this year so we opted to put tags on them. It bit well on one stop. After a while we wound in the jigs due to constant jig strikes, we couldn't short stop anymore without it costing us time in the local grounds where the better grade was biting. Mark and I played a game we call suicide trolling. We each put out a troll rod and the first one to get a tuna on deck wins. The boat doesn't stop. We both got bit instantly but mine fell off. I kept getting bit but they wouldn't hook. After 30 seconds I realized I didn't have a hook on my jig and by the time I got a different jig out we were past the fish and Mark took his time and wound his in for the victory.
We can't complain about today. The weather was as good as it gets. No wind and no sea. It was beautiful. We also caught 54 30-35 pound tuna and for what was around today, it was a good score. We're headed in and we're going to be the first boat in tomorrow at 0530 hours. We'll be heading back out tomorrow on another 5 day trip. See you then.

Hi friends. Back at it today and it was a pretty good day of boatwork. Well, as good as a day of boatwork could be. We shifted our cleaning and organizing efforts to the wheelhouse today. In all honesty, it looks beautiful. Everything is neatly placed in it's correct spot and it's easy to locate and get access too. But in all honesty, in about two months, it's probably going to look exactly how it did before we cleaned it up. But, that's how it is on a boat. Things get thrown around in the heat of an on-water emergency and roll around during rough seas. For now, it's looking good. Speaking of looking good, our friend Stanley Steamer payed the boat a visit today and our carpets got a nice cleaning as well. All in all, a fine day of boatwork and we're one day closer to our first trip on Saturday.
Projects for tomorrow include: some refrigeration maintenance, some A/C work, more cleaning and organizing and we'll take a ride to the fuel dock to change oil and fuel filters, take on more oil and fuel and take a little boat ride about San Diego Bay and see how things are running while we're underway. We'll chat with you tomorrow.

P.S. A little news update for you, our fellow long-range companion, the American Angler, spotted lots of scattered tuna jumping about in overnight range. Check out our schedule and take a peak at some of our early season 1.5, 2 and 3-day trips. Give Susan a call ASAP at 619 390 7890 and get in on some of this early season action that seems to be perking up more and more everyday.
