Capitola: Great day for fishing and the scenery was nice too

Kayak Fun
So – first – sorry – no more fish pictures – we were busy again.

Lots of rock cod came in off the rentals today, a few nice halibut, and a few white sea bass.

The irony / heartbreaker of the day was Ken, who thought he was doing the right thing by releasing a salmon. Turns out he released a 40 pound white sea bass. DARN! I guess better safe than sorry, but still….. DARN!

There’s still bait in through the marina, not as thick but still a pretty healthy amount. What swell there was has gone down again, so – fishing’s probably going to remain good.
