Hello October and hello you all and welcome back to the Polaris Supreme. We were off for a week if you didn't notice. The crew, we all did our own thing except for Tuesday and Wednesday we all got together for a little maintenance. And now we're back out here. We all came back to the boat talking about how great we cook wahoo. "I cooked it this way, you should try it". "Oh no, you should try it my way". Basically I think wahoo is just good. We left for 2 days this morning and we're pumped. We had a report of a floating kelp pattie that was producing good days for many boats this morning so we thought we'd give it a try too. Thankfully it was all rigged up with a flag and a reflector and stuff because the sun was getting low by the time we made it out there and I'm not sure we would have found it without it. Anyways like most rigged kelps there was a school with it and it bit pretty well for us for about an hour and then it got dark. The fish were tuna. A bit on the smaller side but that's what's around and that's what everyone's been catching so we were cool with it too.
Tomorrow we're hoping to get down and crazy with some dorado. We heard of a zone with some floating kelp with schools of those colorful fish and we're going to try and find some.
We have a new PA system on board and that thing pumps. Holy Toledo can that thing put out some power. I think I could take that thing to Petco Park and announce a Padre game with it. Just some more raw power for the Polaris Supreme.

Last night I was planning my next move way too early. I thought by 11:00 this morning we would be fixed up on both dorado and tuna so I was worrying about what I would do for the rest of the day. The old counting your chickens before the eggs hatch scenario. That never works out. By 11:00 this morning we had 2 dorado on board and hadn't even seen a tuna fish yet. It was an afternoon thing today. I prefer morning things. I like getting the sweat off early. It doesn't always work that way though and have I ever let you all down? No need to answer that.
Anyways, before lunch we found our first dorado kelp and it was good for a round. After lunch we found a school of those little tunas and did well while they were there but short lived. A couple hours of looking later we bumped into that same school 5 miles away from where we originally saw it and maybe we got on the meat better that time because it didn't go away. We left them biting. The best way to leave a school. Those things were chewing and coming on fast. They were biting as good as is possible.
After that we found a couple more kelps for a dozen more dorado and then poof, it was dark. So we're headed home and we'll be spending Sunday night with our loved ones and coming back out Monday for 1 1/2 days. Go Chargers!
