A step up from jack smelt

Grass and Black and Yellow cod
Our friends Jeffrey and Carla returned to Capitola this time to try out fishing from a boat. They were overjoyed to catch these nice grass and black and yellow cod off the Capitola reef. They had a lot more on but were fishing too light of a tackle. They’d have been more successful with either a heavier spinning rod outfit or bait casting rod. Swim baits are the key to bagging nice cod. Regardless, these guest teachers from the Philippines are smiling ear to ear as you can see – beginners luck rules!

Aggressive cabezon in the shallows

Jeromy and his sons lured these cabezon with swim baits off Capitola reef. They also had a limit of rock cod – mostly grass.

Rumor Mill – White Sea Bass


A rental boat was fishing in 50 feet of water tossing kastmasters and hooked two fish that they chased down and lost. The fish they described sounded like a couple of very nice white sea bass.

Not rumor: Several rock fish (Glen got his limit again as usual), a few short lingcod off Capitola reef, and a 15 pound halibut was caught off Pleasure Point.

On the Capitola wharf, there was also a 30 pound striper found swimming in the shallows.
