Capitola: Beautiful day

Ian Travis and black rock fish
Here’s Travis and Ian with their two limits of rock cod for today. They were using squid on rock cod rigs off the mile reef. No problem with the fishing – just not many boats out :(

Mackerel are still coming in pretty good off the wharf, and there are some sardines into the marina and two miles out in scattered schools. There was some pretty good bird action this morning out in front of the ship in 35 out to 50 feet of water. Ed watched them work for 1.5 hours all the while in agony cuz he had to work. Could have been wide open mackerel, could have been bonita, could have been seabass. We’ll never know. (Ed is at this moment grumbling to the stenographer – the stenographer will not type those words).

Weather looks to be really great up ’til some time in the middle of next week – current forecast discussion is calling for our first winter-like low to move in here around then. So – that combined with the fact that this Saturday is a free fishing day (!) – you really should get down here and fish if you’ve been thinking about it.
