Capitola: What the heck kind of ugly fish is that?

John and lingcod
Here’s John who launched out of Capitola on his own boat with the only legal ling to come into Capitola today – it was 25 inches, about 8 pounds. He caught it off the Capitola reef using swim bait.

Things were a better at our Santa Cruz location today – Ed was over there this afternoon and saw one Santa Cruz boat come in with two legal lings. They’d been fishing off the main reef using rock cod rigs with squid. They also had a limit of rock cod. We didn’t get a full report from the SC shop, but it is reasonable to expect that Ed’s “sample” there is representative. Santa Cruz has the advantage when it comes to rock formations.
