Capitola: There is more than one mystery spot hereabouts

The Lastfogel family had quite an impressive day fishing for rock fish today. As you can see here, they pretty much filled the boat with rock cod. They caught 37 fish between four people! Fish and Game came up on them and told them they had to stop as they were at their limit. Nice!

They were fishing a mystery spot. They said they were in betwen the mile reef and the point and kind of inside the number 3 yellow buoy and O’Neil’s. Sounds kinda like Adams reef, but it’s a big reef. They were using frozen anchovies and squid on rock cod rigs.

As for the remainder of the boats, most had a few rock cod. One had a really good time with a dozen king fish, and one private boat caught two stripers – one 10 and one 11 pounds – fishing close to the beach off of New Brighton using a rattle trap. The same boat was fishing up by O’Neil’s and released a 20 pound halibut (he doesn’t eat fish so he released everything).

Ed cried.

Capitola: The party on the wharf is never ending

Here’s Armondo with his eighth legal halibut off the wharf this year! He caught this on a swim bait close to the beach.

In addition to the mackerel, jacksmelt, and shiners, we saw some walleyes and blacks. The pace of catching is about the same as yesterday – pretty darned good. It remains a safe bet for a good outing with the kids.

Here’s Joe with the 12 pound striper he caught close to the surf line at about 11am today. He was using a live shiner under a bobber. Word has it that someone hooked a four pounder last night in the same area.

Right now folks are raking in mackerel, jacksmelt, and lots of shiners on the wharf. The weather’s awesome so overall pretty nice day for wharf fishing.

We have 6 rentals out at the moment – no word yet but of course we’ll screech if there’s anything to screech about.
