Capitola: Variety catch rules the day

Today we saw a little bit of everything come in. Most rentals – and we had nearly all of them out – had at least half limits of rock cod. On the halibut front, a few boats had smaller halibut in the 5-8 pound range. On top of all that a number of private launches came in with some decent sized barracuda.

The rock cod action from the Capitola reef to the mile reef and up off the point. Halibut were seen at Capitola reef and the mile buoy, and the barracuda were up off the point in 70 feet of water.

Larry said he saw tons of jack smelt today – that’s what the barracuda were going after. There were a few scattered balls of sardines from the point down to the ship – not something you’d want to count on for jigging.

By all reports, weather was generally great all over the place today – sun was shining (no fog (yet anyway)), and the wind was mostly in the “nice breeze” category. Forecast for tomorrow looks similar to today’s, so – great day to be on the water.

Our commercial guys have assorted fresh fish for sale on the wharf ’til 7 tonight and then all day tomorrow. If you’re looking for something fresh for the barbeque, be sure to come on down – this is as fresh as it gets.

Capitola: This is a good sign

Jim Chan Greg and nice catch
Jim, Chan, and Greg had a pretty good day out by the Capitola reef – nice collection of rock cod and a flattie. Chan caught her first rockfish today, and it was Jim’s first halibut! As you can see the weather is incredible. Hopefully we’ll see more nice catches as the boats come in.
