Here's what went down today. Breakfast, then American Hustle(movie), then a whole lot of tuna leader making, then the Charger game. Listen to this. Our goofball crew member Mark Clark, well he claims to be a Raider fan but the only time he seems to care what they do is when they play the Chargers. Myself and the rest of the crew usually bet 20 dollars on each game. Well today couldn't have played out better. Prior to the start of the game he assumed we were betting and to rub it in that the Raiders are no good, I claimed I didn't want to bet because I'd feel I was taking money out of his sons pocket. He insisted we bet so we did. I still had it planned out to give him his money back if the Chargers blew them out as the ultimate rub in. So if you didn't know, it was a nail biter. Mark missed the last couple minutes of the game and everyone on board made him think that the Raiders won. He immediately came down to the galley and just absolutely let me have it. I don't know
how but I managed to keep a straight enough face to still have him think the Raiders won. Ever since then he's been on cloud 9. I don't know how and when I'll break the news and bring his reality crashing down to a major low. I'm sure looking forward to it though. He thinks he's up 120 bucks but more importantly to him he gets to talk all that smack.
Anyways, moving on. It's cocktail hour now and soon we will be feasting on a veal chop. One more day. The weather is fantastic right now. A beautiful sunset too.
We fished today in the local bluefin zone. We scratched at the yellowfin and picked at the bluefin for 5 hours this morning. Scratch means we were getting a few here and there and pick means we were getting one here and there. In the morning the blues were mostly 25-45 pounds and we caught half a dozen or so 60-70 pounders. Between noon and 5:00 PM we drove around looking for fish with not much luck and we went back to the blue zone for the evening session and had a real good evening. We picked up 7 more 60-80 pounders and the yellowfin got on us a couple times and we couldn't stop catching it until after dark. One post it note I made today was BBB. It's a reminder to tell you about a regular passenger of ours by the name of Bill Byler. If you don't know Bill he is one of those loud mouth, smart mouth old retired fireman guys and he's awesome. He is a load of fun. Anyways he was hooked up onto one of those big Bluefins late today and I heard Gunny tell him his boots were on back wards. I thought it was just a joke but sure enough, his darn boots were on the wrong feet. He said he was wondering why his feet hurt so much. I never seen that before. He ended up catching 2 of those tonight.
The last couple days have been choppy out here but today it was very nice. We get in tomorrow and leave again for 4. See you then.
Southern fishing now is on fire. so many kinds of fish in such a compact area. Jump on your 7 to 10 day trip soon.
Polaris Supreme Trip Update 08-07-2012
Absolutely gorgeous flat calm weather today. And that was the key to pulling the rabbit out of the hat at the end of the day. Definitely a slow start from morning through mid-day. But in the afternoon it was game on, on light breezers of yellowfin tuna. The schools probably only held 50 fish each and were really, really hard to see. Just barely making the lightest ripple on the water. The challenge of it made it really fun for Drew and I trying to spot them. Especially since they immediately bum rushed the boat when we slid on them. And everybody hooked one right off the bat. If you were quick, you got two before it was all over. And then off we were to find another school. The fast pace was very exciting after the last two days of plunker fishing. We fished late so we will have a late arrival tomorrow, probably around 9:00 am. We will get out an update on jackpot contenders and then for the next 3-day, Captain Drew will be out with the Prince of Words, Richie, doing the updates.
Thanks for tuning in, have a great night.
