Alright everyone. As I promised, July 10th has come and we are now out for the summer/fall so be prepared for a wonderful trip report like I have always brought, every night now. After finishing a few things boat work style, and saying goodbye to the friends and family, we were ready to get out here for the long haul and that's just what we're doing.
We showed up bright and early, put on some gas, loaded the herms(passengers) and left for the bait receivers. We cant complain about the bait. A bit on the larger side so we don't get as many but it's nice and healthy so we know they won't die and we'll catch fish with them. Reports sound pretty good for the most part. Pretty good local action for the tunas with some better grade yellows showing up under the kelps. The medium range yellowfin schools disappeared in the last few days but we know they'll show up somewhere soon. You can still at least make a day of it yellowtailing at the islands, and the ridge and rocks produce steady numbers of tuna, tail, and wahoo. Speaking of wahoo, our 9 day in September has room. Don't miss the trip of a lifetime. Light load, lots of fish. Come on, come on, come on. Don't make me beg here.
Anyways we're going to start out fishing offshore tomorrow and I don't know why I say start out because we'll be doing it all day. We'll be hunting tuna and tails. Pretty good reports in the zone we'll be rolling through the last couple days and we'd like to get in on that. Tails and tuna baby, tails and tuna.
On a sad note, we don't have one of our soldiers out with us this trip and we're not sure how long we'll be missing him at the moment. Our dog Tommie "Gunny" Miles had some health issues he needed to handle. I'm not going to go into the details but he's doing better and we hope to have him back as soon as possible. Health comes first though. I'm sure he's reading so maybe shoot him out a little "get better Guns" on FB. We love you bud.
I'll check in tomorrow night and tell you all how things went for us. So sweet dreams and happy booking on the Polaris Supreme.

P.S. I still haven't figured out the spell check yet so I hope I'm not embarrassing myself.
Today was just slow. There is no way to sugar coat it so I won't try. The wrong kelps had no fish, the right kelps had no fish. We had a pretty good spread of boats working it with us too but it was a no go. We gave up on the offshore thing in the afternoon and tried to salvage a day at an Island but it didn't work out. Poor sign of fish with a great sign of seal.
We're going to regroup and try again tomorrow. We're thinking a nice nights sleep on anchor should do the trick. Hopefully I have some good news for you tomorrow.
