Capitola: Rock cod inside, tuna and bonita outside

Dave Kelly and rock fish
Here’s Dave and Kelly with some of the rock cod they caught today fishing the mile reef with squid on shrimp fly rigs. We had two boats out today – the other boat had about 15 browns with a few really nice ones and the rest medium. They were fishing Adam’s reef and the mile reef. The also came in with half an ice chest full of mackerel – medium to large.

Both boats were using GPSs – one used the Little Skipper, the other used their own with a few of the Skipper’s numbers.

You can probably tell that the season is winding down a bit, but the rock cod fishing is pretty good.

In other news. Frank and Kurtis came in from an albacore expedition – Frank had four bonita caught on megabait lures, and Kurtis had three albacore and four bonita (which he didn’t keep). They said that there are some bonita out in the Soquel hole, so hopefully in the next week or two we’ll see those inside the rental boundaries. Probably won’t see albacore that close, but fingers are crossed :)
