Capitola: Local boys do good

Dan and Kurtis and Ed and huge seabass
Dan and Kurtis and Ed scored big today on white seabass. It turned out to be a nice day once the fog lifted and finally got to see the color around noon. They all got lucky using McKee rigs fishing 40 feet of water off the cement ship. The biggest one was 43 pounds – Kurtis got it. Ed’s was a healthy 33 pounds.

Ed said he saw a humpback whale feeding in 50 feet of water off the cement ship today as well.

Still a lot of bait around – lots of shearwater action straight out of the marina today. We saw three short halibut off the wharf today – Joey (Ed Jr.) got them.

Capitola: Swell goes down, halibut come back… again

Cole and big halibut
Cole went out fishing with Josh and Shawn today and brought in this 27.5 pounder. He caught it using frozen squid at the mile buoy. Good job Cole!
