Hi friends. Cherry on top of the Sundae action today. Pretty much a repeat of Friday with steady action on 12-20 lb. Bluefin tuna with a little bit more of that 12-25 lb. Yellowfin tuna to go along with it. Integrated schools for the most part and our score was a 75/25 mix of Blues to Yellows and when we left the area around 1330 hours, the boats still in the area had some steady stops on a little bite more of the Yellowfin with a sprinkling of Bluefin as well. Multiple spots of breaking fish, jig strikes, and machine fish were plentiful and we really didn't have a long break in the action today, we stayed pretty steady. The true cherry on the sundae today was our weather - flat calm and sunny. With our Bluefin limit topped off, we called it a trip and with two scoops of bait to spare in case something cool comes up in our travels to home. We'll see.
So that is all. We put a bow the Ron Heil five day trip and we're motoring up the line in fantastic seas with a little bit of sunshine and the ice cream is being passed about the vessel. Can't say much more about this trip other than it was simply awesome and Ryan and the gang from Let's Talk Hook-Up have some big shoes to fill as we'll be turning around for a four day trip tomorrow. We'll be arriving to Fisherman's Landing tomorrow morning at 0530 as there will be three other long-range boats from the landing getting in and we're in the early slot. We'll report with you tomorrow and take care.
P.S. Ana, the little monster is coming home safe and sound.

Hi friends. Our early morning bite was brief but we managed a handful of dropper-looped Yellowtail and a 30 lb. Halibut before we pulled the pick and began looking around for trophies. The hunt was short-lived as we saw very little sign of fish and with that, a new game-plan was drawn up and we started looking around different areas for sign of fish. It didn't take us long before we pulled up on a sonar school of Yellows that bit fast and furious. The fish were the school-sized grade but we welcomed them with open arms and open hatches. The bite was short and sweet and after a couple hours of action, we found ourselves back in search mode with little success. Not much going on in the different areas we looked at and before we knew it, the deadline was up and we had to make our way up the line to be in position tomorrow morning to finish out our trip with a half-day of tuna fishing. The reports sound pretty solid and we're hoping that we can find us a morning school and top off on tuna and put a lid on the 2011 Ron Heil five day adventure.
The Yellowtail zone was productive enough for us to call our stay here a success so we're traveling up the line in OK weather to wrap this trip up with some of those better grade Bluefins. It sounds like there are some hits to be had and we'll be there to find out for ourselves. Wish us luck and we'll chat with you tomorrow. And yes, Ana, the fish-catching machine formerly known as Brendan is locked up with Dad and will be released for the morning bite. Take care.

Hi folks. A much deserved sleep-in for the boys was a fitting reward for yesterday's performance and we switched from tuna mode to Yellowtail mode. We arrived at our destination a little bit later than we would've liked and we found out why we would've liked to be there earlier. The bite was over with everywhere we looked but we still managed to put together a score on 15-22 lb. Yellows with a couple handfuls of those 30-40 lb. cows. We saw a really nice spot of those cows come up in the late afternoon and we're excited about the potential for tomorrow.
So that is what we'll be up to tomorrow, start off fishing for cows in the morning time and from that point forward, it'll be a toss up whether we stay coastal or we head back up to do some offshore prospecting and finish off on some offshore tuna/kelp paddy 'tails and mahi-mahi. The ideal scenario would be us loaded up with some cows and bail offshore but we'll see. Things could change at the snap of a finger, this water could roll over, and we'll have to re-evaluate things. We'll see. Wish us luck and have a good weekend.
P.S. Ana, the little monster is safe and sound once again. He started off this morning by doing some push-ups to get physically ready to do battle with the mighty Yellowtail and it paid off. He had a very good day. We'll be releasing the beast here in an hour or so (0530 hours). The boys miss you and say HI.

Hi friends. Stellar day on the Bluefin grounds today. In actuality, I should say we had a stellar morning and a stellar evening on the Bluefins. We found our desired water conditions first thing this morning and after a few jig strikes for a handful of fish, we had a single jig fish that turned into the real deal school. Every bait that was tossed in the water was eaten, every angler hooked up, on-the-corner style Bluefin tuna fishing and once one stop dried up, we motored around for a short while until another single jig fish started the melee all over again. It was truly awesome fishing. The afternoon was a whole different story as all we could muster up was a few Yellowfin jig strikes and not very consistently at that. Happy with our morning hits, we decided to steer the Supreme in a southerly direction to arrive to the Yellowtail grounds first thing tomorrow morning. That was until a hunch that an evening float was mere minutes from beginning steered us back one-hundred and eighty degrees back up to the tuna grounds. After going hours without much action, like a light-switch the ocean came alive and we ended the day with sheer pandemonium stops on the school-sized Bluefin and we also had a whack on some 30-50 lb. Bluefins as well. This fishing was as good as it gets for Bluefin tuna and we continued hooking fish all the way until the darkness set upon us and at that time we actually did leave to go to some Yellowtail fishing.
The ocean is a funny place. After "character building" type days where boats would catch absolutely nothing for weeks and weeks, Mother Ocean has decided that we've paid our dues and she is giving up a bounty that is truly gold in our book. Today was a day for the personal log book and the gang enjoyed every second of it. How could you not? It was one of those days that everyone has been waiting for and it just goes to show you that you can't sit around at home and go with the mindset that "I'll book a trip when they start biting". If one was to go through our log books for the past five years, you would see that every year has been different with different time-frames of the best fishing. We are at the mercy of the ocean both fishing and weather-wise (which by the way, was flat calm and gorgeous today). These fish have been M.I.A. for the better part of the 2011 season and all of a sudden, they bite. If we could've predicted that today was going to be a banner day, I assure you, we'd all be living in houses on the hill and driving Ferrari's. What I'm getting at is book a trip to go fishing, not to go catching. Enjoy fishing for what it is, getting away from the stress that land-life might bring, enjoy good food, good people, and just go out to have a good time and experience for yourselves what the ocean is all about. Don't sit around and wait for it to start biting because as is the case with this fish, it might not be here tomorrow. Any trip that you book on a boat, you have the chance to have banner days like today or you have might have a slow trip; that is fishing and it has been since the beginning of time. A lot of people have paid their dues with slow trips and days like today is the most rewarding feeling to those who have had those slow days. Today was a classic reminder that every year is different and when you book a trip, expect the unexpected. Come out to take a fishing vacation and enjoy the ocean for what is, a mystery.
All words aside, we had a terrific day. We're going to enjoy some ice cream and hit the racks. We'll be on the hunt for 'tails and seabass tomorrow. Wish us luck.
P.S. Ana - We kept the little monster locked up safe and sound last night and when we unleashed the beast this morning, he had an awesome time and captured his daily limit (5) of Bluefin tuna. Brendan and Scott are having a fantastic time, they say hello, they love you, and it's all good.

Good evening friends. Standard operating procedures for a turn-around day on the Polaris Supreme. We offloaded Mr. Eric Rogger and company along with their gear and fish, said farewell, and began the many task that we must complete before loading an entirely new group for another trip. Big fish honors go as follows: Mary Lukas, 46.4 lb. Yellowtail. Chad Snyder, 42.2 Yellowtail. John Warner, 40.8 lb. Yellowtail. Congratulations to the winners and we'll see everyone next year. A big thanks goes out to Eric for consistently putting together a fine group of people to enjoy the rail with and thanks to Eric for being one of those charter-masters who just plain gets it. He knows how a group of people should co-exist both at the rail and as people living on a boat. With that, bring on Mr. Ron Heil and his friends for another five day adventure.
A standard travel day was expected today as we loaded bait, ate lunch, did some light rigging, and some heavy napping. But as they say, expect the unexpected. Right around the time we were getting setup for our tackle seminar, we spotted a bird school with some breaking Bluefin below. We hit the school numerous times and only Bob Hagan could coax one into eating a bait. On a side note, if there's one thing that you should know about the crew on-board the Polaris Supreme it's one thing - we love ice cream. Nestle Company's number one driver, Bob, outfitted us with the goods from Haugen-Daas. All natural fruit bars, vanilla-chocolate almond ice cream bars (bomb), caramel cone (double bomb), strawberry ice cream, coffee ice cream, and Dulce De leche. Bob brought on the goods: the sugar, the calories, and the saturated fat, and for that, the fish god's thanked him by giving him a Bluefin tuna to start things off. The area where we caught Bob's fish was loaded with life and it was very close to home, so we'll see if something materializes in that zone. To the overnight fleet and private boaters alike, go get 'em. Tomorrow, we'll a bit further from home to do some Bluefin tuna fishing. Boats in the area had scores from good to excellent and we want some of that, so we'll be arriving there first thing tomorrow morning.
In closing, the weather is double A+ and we'll be fishing first thing in the morning. Wish us luck and we'll chat with you tomorrow evening. Take care.
One last thing. We have one spot available on our Andersen/Lund 8-day trip that just opened up departing October 1st. If you'd like to come out and join the dynamic duo of Dan and Howard or join any trip for that matter, give Susan a call at (619) 390-7890.
C. J. Strike is an outstanding fishery for both warm water and cold water species including crappie, bass, catfish, perch, rainbow trout and sturgeon. It's a popular area for boaters because launching facilities remain open throughout the year.
Fishing C.J. Strike.
|Species||Best To Fish||Misc.|
|Sturgeon||Year around||Use fresh cut-bait in deep holes.|
CJ Strike also holds one of the most prolific White Sturgeon populations in the entire state. The section of the Snake River that CJ Strike is located on is one of only two healthy self sustaining White Sturgeon populations in the State of Idaho.
The reservoir is located near Grandview and Bruneau, Idaho. A variety of fishing and boating access sites are available. Sites are maintained by IDFG, Idaho Power, the BLM, and by private individuls.
Avoid swimming, wading or other activities in CJ Strike Reservoir. Take extra precautions to ensure children and pets are not exposed to the water there. Do not drink or cook with water containing a bloom, which could look like surface scum, spilled paint, mats or foam and carry a foul odor.
Anglers will find their prayers answered here, with plenty of brown trout, chinook and kokanee salmon, yellow perch, black crappie, channel catfish, small mouth bass, and walleye. This is the premier walleye fishery in Idaho, and trophy catches are common.
Boise River, Barber Dam to Lucky Peak in Ada County. The Boise River offers miles of fishing in one of the finest urban trout rivers in the country. Wild trout and stocked hatchery rainbow and brown trout are abundant.

CJ Strike Reservoir: This may be the absolute best sturgeon fishery in Idaho! CJ Strike is only located an hour south of Boise, so its a great fishery for anyone in southern Idaho. We see some great fish in this area and we have lots of opportunity to catch fish over 8 feet in length.
The healthiest populations of white sturgeon remaining in Idaho are found in the free-flowing stretch of the Snake River between the Bliss Dam and the upper end of C.J. Strike Reservoir in southern Idaho, and in the free-flowing Snake River from Lewiston upstream to Hell's Canyon Dam.
Anglers are allowed to catch sturgeon, but harvest is not allowed. All sturgeon must be immediate released unharmed, and anglers can not remove them from the water. You see full sturgeon fishing rules on page 52 in the 2019-21 Idaho Fishing Seasons and Rules.
Its location is near Grand View, Idaho. Its impoundment extends 36 miles (58 km) up the Snake River and 12 miles (19 km²) up the Bruneau River.
Brownlee Reservoir offers fishing, water skiing and boating. For fishing information, check with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Current water levels are posted on the Idaho Power website. The park is open for day-use year-round.
Idaho Power Recreation Sites are Open; Campground Reservations Recommended. All Idaho Power campgrounds, parks, boat ramps and recreation access sites are now open.
Phone service: There is cell phone reception in this campground, but limited. There is a pay phone at this campground. Location/Driving instructions: CJ Strike Reservoir and the area campgrounds are located 21 miles south of Mountain Home. From I-84 take exit 95 at Mountain Home.
Amenities include the following: 30 RV campsites with shared water, no electric hookups. 10 turf-based tent sites. Fire rings.
The campground is in a beautiful spot along the Snake River, close to Swan Falls Dam. Many of the campsites were built and are maintained by Idaho Power, and at some point along the dirt road the ownership switches to BLM. The majority of the sites are riverfront, and all are free.
Many fish are stocked in the reservoir including brown trout, Chinook salmon, kokanee salmon (landlocked sockeye), yellow perch, black crappie, channel catfish, smallmouth bass, and especially abundant is walleye. The Salmon Falls Creek reservoir is said to be one of the most plentiful fisheries in southern Idaho.
|Salmon Falls Dam|
|Total capacity||230,650 acre⋅ft (284,500 dam3)|
|Catchment area||1,610 sq mi (4,200 km2)|
|Surface area||3,400 acres (1,400 ha)|
|Maximum length||14 mi (23 km)|
Walleye aren't native to Idaho, and they're managed in small areas across the state because they can be harmful to other species. Fish and Game asks that people who catch a walleye remove it and report it to a regional office. Anglers can keep the fillets, but officials ask that they turn in the fish's carcass.
This reservoir is well-know for quality Kokanee and Rainbow Trout fishing (primarily supported by stocking), though some anglers choose to focus on Smallmouth Bass. During the summer, anglers are advised to fish early or late as many pleasure boats and water skiers use the reservoir.
Answer: There aren't any sturgeon in Lucky Peak.
Fish species include rainbow trout, kokanee, yellow perch, whitefish, and the protected bull trout. Season open year-round.
Idaho is famous for its blue-ribbon trout fishing streams, shimmering lakes and expansive reservoirs that tempt anglers with the promise of diverse, world-class fishing. Whether you're wrangling Chinook salmon in the summer or ice fishing for rainbow trout in the winter, you'll end up getting hooked on Idaho.
The Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir, which is a southern tributary of the Snake, is one of the only places in Idaho you can catch walleye. Farther west along the Snake River Plain, Lake Lowell is one of the best places in the region to catch largemouth bass.
A simple pattern that's tied to imitate midge pupae and Baetis nymphs, the WD-40 is a great pattern for western trout. This fly can be fished just under the surface as an emerger or with more traditional nymphing techniques under an indicator.
Now, add sturgeon in Idaho to the list. This 117 inch monster caught in The Snake River in Hell's Canyon broke the old record of 113.5 inches. 4 men combined on the effort. Kirk Fairchild, Seamus Fairchild, Lawaine Fairchild and Homer Brown.
A 10-foot sturgeon which as pes Bisson weighs about 500 to 600 lbs was caught, tagged, and re-released in the river. According to Guide Yves Bisson, the fish could've been more than 100 years old.
The Beluga Sturgeon (Huso huso) is the biggest freshwater fish in the world. The largest Beluga ever caught weighed 1,571 kg and was 7.2 m long.
Types of recommended bait include crawfish, fresh water clams, salmon eggs or carcasses, shad and other small fish. If fresh bait isn't available, adding scents to the bait will catch the attention of the sturgeon. Shrimp oil, shad oil and sardine oil are just a few of the many fish oils on the market.
For that reason, the IGFA world record for a white sturgeon stands at only 468 pounds. However, the largest white sturgeon caught by a fisherman is believed to be the estimated 1,100-pounder measuring 12 feet, 4 inches caught in July 2012. It was released on the Fraser River, too.
Washington, Idaho and Oregon in the Pacific Northwest has the best sturgeon fishing in the world! Columbia River fishing offers us 2 excellent locations for our catch and keep for sturgeon. The McNary Dam marks the upper section of the Lake Umatilla Pool near the town of Hermiston Oregon.
A combination of a nightcrawler and a baitfish is excellent. Additional baits that can work for sturgeon include lamprey, shrimp and crawfish and several cut-baits with local fish species such as suckers.
Columbia River White Sturgeon
“Of all the fish we target,” he says, “sturgeon are the most challenging, the most unpredictable.”
Background. Sturgeon are considered the largest freshwater fish in North America. They can grow up to 1,500 pounds and live to be 100 years old. In Idaho, they reside in the Snake, Lower Salmon, and Kootenai Rivers.
Idaho Power Recreation Sites are Open; Campground Reservations Recommended. All Idaho Power campgrounds, parks, boat ramps and recreation access sites are now open.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) created Cascade Reservoir in 1949 for flood control and water storage. The reservoir averages 26.5 feet deep and is 21 miles long and 4.5 miles wide at the widest point.
Amenities include the following: 30 RV campsites with shared water, no electric hookups. 10 turf-based tent sites. Fire rings.
Area Status: Open
The visitor center, which has indoor interpretive exhibits and programs, is open seasonally from Spring through late Summer; however the outdoor displays are available year-round. The visitor center and Hells Canyon Creek Boat Launch are managed in partnership with the Idaho Power Corporation.
Hells Canyon is a ten-mile-wide (16 km) canyon in the western United States, located along the border of eastern Oregon, a small section of eastern Washington and western Idaho. It is part of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area which is also located in part of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.
They said that while there have been toxins identified in the lake, it is not high enough to issue a health advisory. However, while there is not a 'no contact warning' currently in place, it could still be harmful if ingested.
Beautiful views, plenty of beach, clear cool water to swim in and easy access!

Detailed description of corporate withholding taxes in United Kingdom
Payments of interest by UK resident companies if the beneficial owner of the interest is also a UK resident company, or a UK PE, provided the interest concerned will be taxed in the United Kingdom as part of the PE's trading profits.. If none of the exceptions apply, a payment of interest must be made after the deduction of WHT unless (or until) HMRC has given authorisation that the payment may be made gross (or with a reduced rate of WHT) because of the applicability of treaty relief for the recipient.. the beneficial owner of the corresponding income is a UK resident company (or trading in the UK through a PE or a partnership in which the partners meet specific conditions); relief is available under a DTT; or payment was made prior to 1 June 2021 (or 3 March 2021 where anti-abuse measures are applicable) of an amount which would have qualified for exemption under the EU Interest and Royalties Directive prior to Brexit.. Unlike the rule regarding interest, where such a relief is available, a company may make a royalty payment gross of WHT (or subject to a reduced rate of WHT under a treaty) without prior clearance having been given by HMRC if they reasonably believe at the time that the relief is due.. The tables below set out the rates of WHT applicable to the most common payments of dividends, interest, and royalties under UK domestic law where such a liability arises and the reduced rates that may be available under an applicable DTT.. Note that, following Brexit and the end of the transition exit period on 31 December 2021, payments of interest, royalties and dividends to UK companies ceased to qualify for relief under the Interest and Royalties Directive (IRD) and the Parent-Subsidiary Directive (PSD) respectively from 1 January 2021.. The UK had incorporated the IRD into domestic law in a way that did not rely on the UK being a member of the EU to continue to be effective, so UK companies initially continued to be able to pay interest and royalties without deducting WHT in circumstances where the IRD would have applied.. From that date, payments of interest and royalties by UK companies to associated companies resident in the EU are subject to WHT unless relief is available under the applicable double tax treaty (and subject to the conditions and limitations of that treaty).. The UK does not impose WHT on dividend payments, so the loss of the PSD does not impact the WHT on dividend payments made by UK companies.. Resident recipientWHT (%)InterestRoyaltiesCorporations0/20 (1)0/20 (1)Individuals2020 Payments to any UK resident company can be made free of WHT if the recipient is chargeable to tax on the interest or royalty.
The United Kingdom has four constituent countries, England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The UK came together over several centuries.
Constituent countries of the United Kingdom The United Kingdom has 4 constituent countries, England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.. The has four constituent countries, England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.. It was followed by the Union of the Parliaments in 1707, when the parliament of Scotland dissolved itself and the parliament of England, based in London, became the parliament for all of Great Britain.. Ireland, except the northern part, which became Northern Ireland, would eventually break away from the UK and become independent in 1921.. Arguably, England’s most dominant force in the UK is the English language, which has managed to all but replace other languages indigenous to the UK, such as Welsh, Scottish Gaelic, and Irish Gaelic.. In 1707, the Scottish parliament dissolved itself, and a parliament unifying the representatives of Scotland and England was proclaimed in London, thus completing the Union of the Parliaments.. But in 1966, violence broke out between Irish Catholics, who wanted to unite Northern Ireland with the predominantly Catholic Republic of Ireland, and Protestant Unionists, who wanted Northern Ireland to remain part of the UK.. Most voters in Northern Ireland, however, voted to remain part of the EU, since doing so meant the continued free movement of goods and services between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.. Much to the relief of many in Northern Ireland, a compromise was reached under which the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland would remain customs-free once the UK formally left the EU in 2021, but new customs checks would be introduced for the movement of goods between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
