Today was awesome. We woke up drifting catching fish and that's about what we did until dark. I'm not kidding you. We moved the boat just a handful of times but never for more then 10 minutes. It was drifting with always at least one on the hook. In the morning until after lunch it was mostly bluefin in the 30-45 pound range with the occasional 60-80 pounder. I have to tell you that that's a much more manageable grade. It's a much better fish to start off on than those 60-80 pounders. Don't get me wrong, you know I love catching those beauts but they make a much better cherry than ice cream if you know what I mean. We had that kind of day where if we catch them tomorrow it will be the cherry on top. The rest of the day we got into yellowfin tuna mode and it was game on for those fish. Tommy decided to save our sardine on board it being they were feeding on the anchovy that went over the side so that's what we used. Chovy baby. I can't ever remember fishing anchovy for tuna on this boat. I have to go back to my mission bay days to remember that but I didn't forget how to do it. I wrote this in the beginning of the season and I'll write about it again. If you're coming on a future trip, please remember to bring the lost art of anchovy fishing skills. A big part of that is an anchovy rod and reel. Something light that's meant for 20-25 pound test with a nice free spool to help you toss those anchovies away from the boat. I hate to say it but if that means you need to bring your coffee grinder so be it.
The weather is still good! Man I hope this can hold up for at least my buds on the upcoming Heil 5 day trip leaving the day after tomorrow. We're staying put right here for our last day fishing tomorrow. We're hoping we can get more of the 60-80 pounders tomorrow but we will be stoked with the 30-45's as well.
I have very little to write about today. Everyone just chilled out. It's tough to say that though because it was so hot today. You'll have that when your at a lower latitude then Cabo San Lucas. Today was our last day of travel. You can tell when that day has arrived because Charlie starts to lose his mind. He can keep it together for about 3 days of travel but any longer then that he starts to get a little coo coo. He was sitting in the wheel house today counting the flying fish he saw flying by as the boat spooked them. He also walked about 3 miles around the boat. All this is very necessary to keep Charlie at a sane enough level to keep everyone on board safe so we encourage it. Everyone else did the same old same old. Movies, rigging, cigars, naps and Mark just ate food all day. We arrive to our destination at about 4:00 in the morning and we're all really excited to do so. Tomorrows report will have to do with fishing.
The Polaris Supreme Crew
34 pass 170 yellowfin tuna (limits) 17 dorado. Flyline baits, colt snipers and small Flatfalls.
To say we were disappointed with our results on this beautiful 20+ ft kelp would be an understatement. This sweaty Betty was located in the same water as yesterday’s small kelp that kicked out limits of dorado. Mother Ocean humbles us once again. 5 yellowtail, 2 dorado, 2 bonito.
2 Yellowfin Tuna, 2 Yellowtail, 28 Skipjack Tuna. Light loads and good weather all week. We saw this floating yesterday. Looks expensive.
