Capitola: Swell remains down, fishing remains good

Chris Carl and Halibut and Cabezon
Chris and Carl both scored nicely today with some cabezon and 8 and 10 pound halibut. They were fishing live anchovies. The 10 pounder came in off Soquel point, the 8 pounder came in off the Capitola reef along with the cabezon.

Kurtis and Josh went out for two hours today and got three legal flatties. Dan and Pete fished all day and got 5, the biggest was 22 pounds, the smallest was 12 pounds. The first one was caught trailing hoochies, the rest were on live anchovies. There were many other radio fish as well throughout the day.

One boat hooked up and lost two white sea bass off the west end of the marina.

Bait is still around, swell is still down, and the weather is still cooperating, so it’s likely that we’ll have at least a few more great days of fishing like this.

If you’re going out fishing this week, be sure to get your licenses in advance as we’ve run out – no estimate as to when we get more yet.
