Capitola: We are running out of Spongebob jokes

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 84984 * Colleen and Josh visited His Squareness today as well, and ended up with this nice legal flattie along with some rock cod ( three browns and a gopher) which they released. Colleen (who caught the halibut) was using dead jacksmelt on a halibut rig. Awesome dinner Colleen!

We saw lots of browns come in from the same area, and heard of a number of undersized lings being caught and released as well. We definitely saw some skunked rentals today – probably as many as 6 boats (out of 20). But there was *nobody* getting skunked when it came to bait fish – sardines, mackerel, and above all jacksmelt. Bait is still everywhere.

The wharf continues its marathon bait catching bonanza – you can get gobs of it off the wharf with a sabiki. We saw one legal striper come in, no halibut yet. We have high hopes however – conditions are good for stripers and there was a late bite last night.

The weather continued its weird “a bit too cool” trend today – we are really hoping for a warm up soon.

Capitola: Sponge Bob spits up a couple flatties

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 84981 * Check out Aaron here – he’s the wharf highliner today. He caught these two from his kayak out by (you guessed it) Spongebob. He was using swim baits – split tail scampis, root beers. and whites. Very nice catch Aaron – congratulations!

Capitola: I bet we are going to need to talk licensing or something

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 84978 * So to start off today’s lineup, we have Brandon and Rusty and a lingcod and some brown rock cod. They caught these off Capitola reef by Spongebob ™. You will notice a pattern. Not much of one cuz we don’t have many pictures, but it is a pattern none the less.

They caught these fish using live sardines on halibut rigs.
