Capitola: Soquel point Soquel point Soquel point

Matt and flatties
And here’s our highliner! Matt caught these again in the same area – 35 feet of water off Soquel point. He too was using frozen squid, and he too was right next to Ed when he got these. Dan and one other boat got one as well. Same area, same depth – the whole thing. Perhaps Ed’s good fishing karma is sloughing off onto whoever happens to be near him, cuz darn darn darn – no fish for Ed.

Kurtis went further on up the coast but ended up flying the skunk flag.

Weather wise the swell is back up with a vengeance again, but that’s not stopping these flatties. The swell is supposed to peak tomorrow and be gone by Friday. That’d be nice.

Bait wise, everything is down by the cement ship in 30 feet of water right now, scattered, and hard to get. They’re mostly sardines and mackerel.

Sightseeing was fun today however – there was a whale jumping completely out of the water for a while in 35 feet of water between the ship and new brighton. Extremely cool!
