Capitola: Decent Summer Day of Fishing

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 78311 * Here are Anthony, James, and Kirkland with the grass cod they caught off Capitola reef today. All the fish they caught bit on swim baits. This was a pretty typical catch on the boats aside from the few that brought in giants. Lots of boats said they had something big on but got spooled or snapped off. Most likely these were threshers – they’re definitely around.

It was trickier to find bait today – once again pinhead anchovies in shallow, and sardines and mackerel out a bit further in 40-50 feet of water.

The swell remains very very down – it’s not completely gone, but the halibut that we’ve seen today is evidence that it’s not bothering the groundfish any.

Otherwise – beatiful day – overcast in the morning, sunny around noon through til now – wind picked up out of the west about 1 pm. Forecast calls for the same tomorrow – that’d certainly be nice.
