Capitola: Beautiful dismal day

Jeff and rock cod
Results were a little slower today. One little halibut came in, some nice browns, some blacks, some blacks and yellows, one legal ling, one teeny weenie little thresher. But there were a lot of smiling faces – weather wise nice and a few boats got to see a humpback blowing its nose about two miles straight off the wharf. Guess where I’m going tomorrow :)Still little splotches of red tide close to the wharf, and not a lot of wharf action except: there was a report of a striper chasing a krocodile down close to the beach. There’s a thing that’s more of a surge than a swell going on, and that’s probably the culprit.

New and improved Boat Bucks are available here.

P.S. Our apologies to Aaron – we had a camera problem and lost the photo of you with your rock cod, else we would have posted it.

Capitola: Nicer day so far

Kristina and rock cod
Here’s Kristina with a black rock cod. She got this out at the mile reef using the always reliable shrimp fly jig. The fog has retreated but it looks like it’s going to come back in real quick. The swell is down more, and there are only small remants of the red tide – a few red streaks here and there. We’ll see what happens when the fleet comes in.
