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.
Captain Andrew Viola checked in this morning at 8:59 PM with an audio update from the Pacifica out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. We have been drifting for an hour and have put together a good score so far. We have 62 Yellowfin Tuna and 4 Bluefin Tuna. We are still drifting with fish around the boat.
We have a 1.5 day trip departing on Wednesday night. We also have a full day trip on Sunday. Come out fishing on the Pacifica!!!!

Good evening. We spent our morning getting the Supreme and her passengers out of the weather for a bit, attempting to locate some coastal species for a morning while we gave the offshore scene a rest. We didn't quite connect like we were hoping but we did manage to catch a few yellowtail for our efforts, so all was not for lost. We made the decision to get back offshore and see what was going on and what was going on was scattered jig strikes on yellowfin tuna with some bait stops to go along with it. There is still some good hits to be had out here on both bluefin and yellowfin but we just didn't locate the right batch of fish. For tomorrow, we'll be fishing a little bit closer to home as we'll give it a try for a few hours and then have to book it for home. Wish us luck and sorry for the short report, the weather traveling up isn't the best conditions for typing but it's still okay to traveling. It could be a lot worse but we don't want that. Take care and we'll chat with you tomorrow.

Hi friends. Tough day for us here on the high seas. No sugar-coating anything today, it was a slow day. We saw multiple good schools of yellowfin but Tropical Storm John really has things screwed up down here. We only managed a few handfuls of yellowfin in the 12-35 lb. category along with a couple of nice bluefin and a few various bottom dwellers for our final tally. Like I said, no shortage of fish running around but they are just not cooperating all that well.
We're hoping for a banner day tomorrow as the weather is supposed to straighten out and be flat calm and sick hot. I was a hot little potato today even though it was rather windy and choppy. We can only hope tomorrow that it snows or something because it is going to be a scorcher. Bronzing isn't even an appropriate word for what we did today, we got down-rite ethnic with our tans today. My goodness it was hot. Speaking of hot, our team in the galley is hot. Schooler and Shawn, aka "The Dream Team" are just magnificent. Along with the world's greatest deckhand, they really are the heart and soul of this operation and I feel that it is a pleasure to not only be worthy enough to eat their creations but to also know them as people. Thank you, Schooler and Shawn, thank you for making my life so wonderful and all of the passengers too. You're so dandy and thanks for getting us fat.
Anyhow, our fingers are crossed for tomorrow and yours should be too. Pray for snow and lots of tuna. See ya.
