Capitola: Sea bass down, halibut up

Art and big flattie
The seabass bite seems to have gone away today. For a while people were catching and releasing lots of shorties, but that petered out later in the day. Meanwhile, halibut fishing seems to have taken a turn for the better. Art landed this beautiful 27 pounder using live anchovies in 40 feet of water off O’Neil’s.

There’s still plenty of bait to be jigged up – same story – too thin for a throw net, so jigging is the way to go.
