Capitola: Bait bait bait bait bait bait

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 93395 * Rayl (sorry – we didn’t get the spelling) and Jerry got into jacksmelt heaven on a rental today – they caught these off Soquel point outside the kelp bed. These guys are today’s highliner out of Capitola. Myron the Mariner had two small brown rock fish and now he’s all too proud and stuff to have his pitcher taken, but these guys win anyway on poundage.

Ocean fishing out of Capitola is GANGBUSTERS *if* you like jacksmelt or sardines. Other than that, we are playing the waiting game. This time of year is often the best time of year for fishing around here for halibut and seabass, but we’re waiting for the cork to pop on all that.

We have been seeing some nice flatties coming in off of Davenport, which is normal for this time of year as well – expect that to continue for at least another month weather permitting.

Anyway – when things pick up you’ll be sure to hear it from us.

If you’re into tuna, be sure to check out the skuttlebut on Bayside’s site – it’s quite a tuna frenzy out there today.

Capitola: Skates and rays rule the day

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 93392 * Well – hrm – here’s the wharf highliner for today so far – Mike with a large shovelnose skate. Ed had a very very large bat ray on his line today as well, but he let it go as soon as he figured out what it was. He figures it was between 80 and 100 pounds – its wingspan was easily 6 feet.

Still lots of bait on the wharf – sardines – otherwise we’re once again hoping on a late striper bite. More when it happens.
