Capitola: Six hours of flat glassy water – 22 miles – darn darn darn

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 88524 * So that little spot between the marina and the swim buoys has been pretty generous lately. John and Steven here hooked up on three(!) flatties fishing maybe 10 yards from the Lucky Buddha (who’d a figured – he works long range too) using live sardines on halibut rigs. The bite occurred around 10:00am. They also caught 5 rock cod – all browns – in the same area.

Ed is at this moment castigating himself – he was out fishing today in his own boat and did 22 miles. He saw some, well, really really excellent signs but none the less came home empty handed. He is a sad panda.

On the ocean otherwise, a large contingent of the local fleet out of Santa Cruz has gone out for tuna – we’ve heard them chatting on the radio all day. This could be “the big one”.

Closer to home, there are *still* lots of sardines in and around the wharf and marina. Further out in 40-60 feet of water pelicans have been diving on whatever it is that has been causing scattered worm shaped marks on the fish finder. Flatties (as you may have noticed) are still in very close. They’re not exactly monsters, but you can definitely make a decent meal out of one.

Capitola: Another Happy Buddha Disciple

Here’s Anthony with his first ever halibut! He went fishing with our Lucky Buddha (Rafael) – rubbed the tummy, and voila!! He caught this 8 pounder fishing live sardines in the same spot the people were getting them yesterday – between the swim buoys and the first tier of moorings in the marina. Congratulations Anthony!

Capitola: Pepe Le Pew Heads For The Hills

John hooked on his first Capitola wharf striped bass this morning – a nice 15.5 pounder! He was using a live sardine under a bobber down by the break on the west side of the wharf. John is happy – his skunk is gone!!
