She was escorted out by USS PC 1078.

For the daily and attack positions of USS Archerfish during this patrol see the map below. As no deck log is available (for the moment) positions were taken from the patrol report. Unfortunately the patrol report does not give daily noon positions.

27 Dec 1943
USS Archerfish (Cdr. G.W. Kehl, USN) refuels at Midway before proceeding to her patrol area.

18 Jan 1944 (position 25.14, 123.42)
USS Archerfish (Cdr. G.W. Kehl, USN) attacked what is thought to be a Japanese escort vessel to the North of Iriomote Jima in position 25°14'N, 123°42'E. Four torpedoes were fired but no hits were obtained.

(All times are zone -8)
0105 hours - In position 25°29'N, 123°43'E obtained a radar contact at a range of 7000 yards. Commenced radar tracking. Target course turned out to be 170°, speed 7 knots. Kept the range at about 8000 yards while working up ahead.

0240 hours - Now ahead of the target with course and speed right on. Went to battle stations and commenced approach. Visibility was about 2000 yards. Planned to fire the stern tubes on a 90° port track from a range of 1500 to 2000 yards using three torpedoes. When the range had closed to 4000 yards the pip was so large that it was decided to use four torpedoes.

0320 hours - In position 25°14'N, 123°42'E commenced firing the stern tubes as planned except a greater range.

0323 hours - Heard two almost simultaneous explosions.

0325 hours - Heard two more explosions. Nothing could be seen. Opened the range to 8000 yards and started working up ahead again. The target headed to the westward for a while and then came back to a 170° track, speed 7 knots.

0552 hours - Dived 12000 yards ahead of the target. In the meantime the torpedo tubes were reloaded. When the range had closed to 9000 yards pinging was heard. Decided that the target must be some sort of escort craft and that most likely the torpedoes had run under. Contact with the target was however soon lost.

22 Jan 1944 (position 25.45, 121.24)
USS Archerfish (Cdr. G.W. Kehl, USN) attacked and possibly damaged what is thought to be a large merchant vessel in a Japanese convoy to the north of Formosa in position 25°45'N, 121°24'E. She was then hunted and depth charged but no damage was done to her.

(All times are zone -8)
2142 hours - Obtained a radar contact bearing 011°, range 24000 yards. Commenced tracking and approach. Determined contact to be 4 large and 3 smaller smaller ships on a base course of 215° at a speed of 14 knots. They were zig-zagging. Started attack.

2341 hours - In position 25°45'N, 121°24'E commenced firing torpedoes at a 8000 to 10000 tons merchant vessel.

2341 hours - A terrific explosion occured which shook Archerfish considerably. Four torpedoes had been fired. Archerfish then turned away. She was then taken under fire. When they shell splashes came to close ...

2348 hours - Dived. Rigged for depth charges and silent running.

2357 hours - The first pattern of 6 depth charges was dropped. The 4th of these was close but caused no damage.

0012/23 hours - One depth charge was dropped, not close.

0018/23 hours - Two depth charges were dropped, these were closer then the previous one.

0104/23 hours - Two depth charges were dropped, not close.

0130/23 hours - Went to 100 feet to listen.

0208/23 hours - Surfaced.

25 Jan 1944 (position 22.54, 121.19)
USS Archerfish (Cdr. G.W. Kehl, USN) attacked an escorted merchant vessel to the west coast of Formosa. Four torpedoes were fired but no hits were obtained.

(All times are zone -8)
0628 hours - In position 24°19'N, 122°06'E sighted smoke on the horizon to the north. Closed on four engines. Made out two 'Maru's ' through the periscope.

0639 hours - Dived as it got lighter. Range was about 25000 yards. Continued to close while at periscope depth. Everything looked good. No aircraft or escorts were sighted. The convoy's speed was 8 to 10 knots.

0700 hours - The two ships started zig-zagging. Continued to run in.

0804 hours - Now had come to close to the coast. Decided to make an end around and start another attack.

1155 hours - Surfaced and commenced an end around on four engines. Had planned to surace an hour earlier but the SD radar was out of action and had to be repaired. Knew they would be hugging the coast so headed down about 15 nautical miles off the coast of Formosa for a night attack.

1914 hours - In position 23°06'N, 121°30'E made radar contact with two vessels, which were hugging the coast very closely. Range was 11000 yards. Commenced tracking and approach went up ahead to a sport which offered deep water up close up to the beach. As the range closed it became apparent that these ships were not the same ships as this morning. One of them could have been but the other ships 'pip' was much smaller and must be an escort vessel.

2058 hours - In position 22°54'N, 121°19'E commenced firing four bow torpedoes from 2100 yards at the large 'pip'. The target and escort were not sighted before firing because of the dark background of the land. No hits were seen nor heard and also no end of run explosions were heard.

2101 hours - The escort opened up with a 3" or 4" gun but it did not seem to be firing on Archerfish which was in the meantime retiring to seaward.

27 Jan 1944 (position 23.51, 124.53)
USS Archerfish (Cdr. G.W. Kehl, USN) is bombed from the air by a Japanese Mavis aircraft. No damage was done to Archerfish.

(All times are zone -8)
1153 hours - In position 23°51'N, 124°53'E obtained SD radar contact at 6 nautical miles and sighted an aircraft at the same time bearing 130°. Dived.

1201 hours - A large depth charge was dropped overhead. It shook the boat and knocked off some paint. Remained dived for the remainder of the day.

1757 hours - Surfaced.
