Capitola: Wharf fishing is pretty fun

Cathy and jack smelt
Here’s Cathy with one of the jacksmelt we’ve seen come up on the wharf today. She caught this next to the fish tank using bits of anchovies on a surf leader setup. She’s also fishing for mackerel on a bait jig with a bobber.

Wharf fishing has been pretty good this week, with a lot of mackerel, some jack smelt, and a couple small halibut. The mackerel bite has continued to be pretty good in the later part of the day each day this week. Weather’s been incredible – temperatures have been in the middle to upper 70s with a light breeze and it’s supposed to hold into the weekend.
