Capitola: Boat bucks double as lucky charm

Troy Tyrus and halibut and ling
Troy and Tyrus found the bite today off O’Neils. Troy landed a 20 pound halibut and Tyrus got a 12.5 pound ling. They were fishing with live jack smelt. Looks like the swell has gone down despite forecasts and the bite is back on. You can spend Boat Bucks up ’til this Thursday – take a day off and catch some dinner!

    Our Santa Cruz store has been open all summer. We’ve not had many reports out of there as that store doesn’t have internet access, and the folks who work there don’t often call Capitola with updates (Capitola has internet access). We only post Santa Cruz reports when we hear them from somewhere reliable (or preface the dubious ones with “Radio Fish”), and we just haven’t been hearing much. is an alternative as he’s local to SC and gets reports from private boats that come in. He doesn’t update as often however.

    We’re working to fix the internet issue in our SC store, but it’s going slowly. Sorry for the lack of reports from there.
