We arrived today at Fisherman's Landing at 7 am after a nice smooth ride last night. After weighing up the jackpot we were pleasantly surprised with the fact that the yellows were larger than we thought. Joe Beck took 1st place with a 42.6 lb yellowtail. Mike Grella took 2nd with a 41.3 yellowtail and Tim Walsh followed it all up with the 3rd place 39.6 lb yellowtail. Congratulations to our jackpot winners.
The Polaris Supreme will be departing next on Thursday afternoon on a private 1 1/2 day charter sponsored by Optima. We still have openings on our 3-day departing July 10 as well as other trips throughout the summer. Give Susan a call to get on board.
Thanks! Tommy and crew
P.S. Yes Kub, that was the yellowtail Joe hooked on the jig on his first cast of the morning. Thanks to you, for waking him up for the bite!

Good evening. A sloppy ride last night was forgotten about around 1000 hours this morning as what was a crummy ride a few hours before turned into a stable ride for most of the day. With the bucking seas last night we only had an hour or so of actual stop time if we got into anything special but it never happened. We trolled through beautiful water today but were unable to locate or catch anything. Lack of bait species in the water is probably the reason we didn't see much and hopefully, it's just a matter of time before everything gets in order and we get a shot at some offshore action. We'll see.
The gang broke down tackle today and got caught up on sleep that a bouncy ride deprived them of. The crew scrubbed the boat and took care of a few maintenance projects before days end. Our traditional fillet and lobster dinner was served promptly at 1800 hours and a bow was put on the 2011 Beck/Wagstaff party. We had slow fishing for a couple days to start off the trip but we finished up with a bang and all in all, we call this trip a success. We're grateful for the guys being a great group to have on-board regardless of catching fish or not. They are a fun bunch of passengers to hang out with and for that, we thank them. We also thank Joe Beck and Mal Wagstaff for year after year putting together quite the mix of personalities that make this trip an excellent one to start the season out with.
We're heading home in nice weather and we're prepared for a date with docks tomorrow. Our ETA to Fisherman's Landing is 0700 hours Tuesday morning and we'll be back out Thursday night for a day and a half trip. Time to get local. Chat with you then, good night.
