Decent wharf fishing

Off the wharf, Pete got a striper this weekend – 15 inches – the first sizable one of the season. Perch fishing is off and on right now, with the afternoon bite being best. Some barred perch and black perch, and a couple of starry flounders (biggest about 14 inches) came in as well.

Only a few boats are going out with cod closed. The few boats that did go out had some sizable rock cod. One boat today out past the mile reef had two big fish on that broke off.

First gray whale of the season was spotted outside the marina today in Capitola, and the weather is beautiful. Bait should be on its way soon.
