Capitola: Browns here and there

Mike and brown rock fish
Mike was out with a couple of buddies today in a rental. This is the biggest of the browns they hooked up with – they got one limit total between three people. They were fishing a number of reefs using rock cod jigs and swim baits. Not the best catch in the world, but they had a good time which probably counts now.

Capitola: Slow day but fishing ok

Jeff and halibut
Jeff caught this one off Soquel point working along the edge of the kelp bed. He got this keeper using channel island swim baits. He also got two lings – one legal and one undersized, and some browns. He let everything go but the flattie.

Capitola: Dementia and the stenographer, chapter 1

Ernie and halibut
Ernie hooked up this flattie off the wharf in a late bite yesterday afternoon. He was flylining sardines off the wharf. There were a couple of other takedowns but no landings.

On the bait scene, 10-12 inch sardines were jiggable outside Capitola reef and out to to the mile reef. We got a dozen or so in 35-50 feet.
