Well the plan worked. We stayed tucked behind Cedros Island till 1:30 this morning. That gave things above time to settle down. The wind backed off at 10:00 last night and it was a surprisingly nice ride up this morning. It was a little herky jerky but much better than we thought it would be. We went full cruise and barely got the windows wet. Due to the nice ride, we had some time to fish this morning and we found some action. We hit up this little pinnacle and it had some 14-18 pound yellows hanging out. We made a few drifts and an anchor job and managed to scratch up more then 2 per rod. We all needed a little action. We'll be a little late getting in tomorrow but it's worth it. We deserved some action after being stuck in the lee yesterday due to the weather.
And that's it. That's the trip and that's the 2015 season for us. It's time to hang with the family and be a dad and a husband. Time for the rest of the crew to do what they do. Until February that is. Then we leave on a long one. It's also time for me to thank all our customers. Thanks for the year, and thanks for the years. It's always fun and it's always different. This year will have a special place in the old memory bank just like all the other years and it's because of most of you reading these posts. And I just want you to know, that we all appreciate what you do for us, and mostly it's as easy as coming out fishing with us. THANK YOU!!!!!!

Good evening folks. Today didn't fair out like we planned. It proves that's why it's called fishing and not catching. We didn't have the awesome weather that we had yesterday, but it was certainly fishable. Our common yellowtail zone has been producing fairly well over the past few weeks, but there are those off days too. What's encouraging though, is there is also school of yellowfin tuna down here South as well. It's great for keeping our options open for when the tails don't want to cooperate. My feeling is the the tails just took a day off to regroup and we'll get at it first thing in the morning and start tagging some fish right away. On a brighter note, we did move north a little ways in the early afternoon and hit a giant breezer of tuna. Pretty close to a football field size I would say, and we managed to get a nice chunk of them to stick with us. It took some shoveling of bait to get them to stick, but they did. Nothing like a nice chaotic tuna bite to break up the day. We managed to turn it into a nice 100 fish stop of a pretty good grade I might add. All and all, we ended up putting a descent afternoon and everyone got to tag plenty of tuna. Tomorrow is a new day, we'll cross our fingers that the fish God's are on our side tomorrow and we'll check back in after we wrap it up for the day.
Also, we cannot forget to wish Michelle Taylor a very Happy Birthday from Troy and the boys out here on the Polaris Supreme!!
