Drew Henderson docked Polaris Supreme July 5 after a five-day trip with 23 anglers. His fishermen had plenty of albacore, but bluefin swept the jackpot spots.
"What a great day of fishing," wrote Drew July 2. "Just couldn't be better. Everyone has had their fill of albacore so we are heading off to do some Island fishing for some of those big yellowtail. We should be there by daybreak tomorrow. Weather is fantastic."
At the dock, Drew said, "We got limits of albacore. Benitos has a lot of fish, but they're not biting very well, and the seals are. Yesterday afternoon we had a three-hour bite. The cedar plug is getting a lot of troll fish, ans so is my favorite, the ‚Дтscreamin' pink,' skirted jig."
Ray Mercieca of Arcadia won first place for a 38-pound bluefin. He said he bagged it with a sardine on a 3/0 Mustad 91450 hook, 30-pound P-Line, a Penn 950 SS spinning reel and a Daiwa seven-foot spinning rod.
Greg Culbert of Ojai was second, for a 36-pound bluefin and Bob Norman of Green Valley, AZ was third, for a 32-pound bluefin tuna.

Well we had some action today. We fished our wahoo/tuna honey hole. It wasn't red hot but we made some drifts and caught some fish. Our last couple schools we saw before lunch didn't react so we took a tour. We found some tuna a couple hours into the tour. The bigger ones. The 25-35 pounders but we weren't ready. Some were napping or lounging. It hit us quick. Everyone that made it out hooked up but it didn't last long. We got on a couple of more deals after that but they were smaller fish. 12 pounders so we continued on our tour. We looked for yellowtail in the afternoon but like everywhere right now it seems, there wasn't any current.
The weather straightened out for us today. It was nice again. We have one day left to fish and we want to do it catching yellowtail. The elusive yellowtail. That's usually the fish we don't have trouble finding but we've struck out this trip on them thus far. We have about 30. We want more so that's what we'll do. From where we'll be fishing we can fish until lunch but then we have to hit the road for home.

Capt Ryan Bostain called in from the San Diego, they headed offshore again however the tuna were not willing to bite. We spent most of the day in pursuit of tuna and ended they day with 12 mixed tuna, which was 9 Bluefin Tuna and 3 Yellowfin. We decided to start looking for kelp fish later in the day and found some willing Yellowtail, the final tally was 130. They were not huge, mostly from 7 to 12 pounds, plenty good enough for the many beginners to offshore fishing. We are going to stick with thhisa offshore fishing for a while, to get on a trip call the landing at 619-224-3383 or you can book your spot online. There is plenty of tuna around however today they were off the bite, hopefully they will bite tomorrow.

We departed today on the Dan Heil Memorial charter with his son Ron Heil as charter head. It's pretty cool to see some of the old faces. Dan's charter has been with me for over 25 years. We were in a panic rush to get out and get to the local fishing grounds before dark. We got about three good hours of fishing and snagged a handful of yellowfin, a bluefin and a beautiful opah. Our weather is absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks for checking in.
Tommy and crew
P.S. Two spots left on the "Let's Talk Hookup" charter departing next Tuesday.

Today was a tough day. The fish were there and the conditions were good, the fish were just less eager. Everyone was on the right program when it came to hustling the fish in to avoid the sharks. So the opportunities we did have we were able to capitalize on.
Pictured here are fishing buddies Sean with Mark, and Dennis with Travis showing off their captures! Good going guys!
