Capitola: Does Darn Glenn have some competition?

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 95427 * Jim and his buddies Juan, Arthur, Miguel, and Freddie are our highliners today – they’re each showing one of the twenty fish they kept between the five of them (they released many smaller fish). Their keep included some browns, grass cod, and gopher cod, which they caught basically all over the place using frozen sardines and squid, rock cod rigs and chunked bait.

Not much going on in the other boats. We only had five boats out, and aside from the sardines we mentioned earlier, the only other fish of substance was a really nice brown rock cod that one boat caught by Sponge Bob.

On the wharf today, the bait didn’t come in ’til later this morning – maybe around 10:00am for the end of the wharf. Sardines started biting very well on bait jigs later this afternoon, and one small halibut (1/2 inch too short) caught and released near the beach with a bobber.

Weather wise, it was again foggy and in the 60s. It’s supposed to be clear and warmer the next few days.

Capitola: Do what I say, not what I do – Ed

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 95424 * John and Zeland stuck to their guns over by the kelp bed to the east of the wharf and landed this nice 29 inch flattie using live sardines on a halibut rig. We have not heard of any success from any of the rentals yet aside from one that was targeting sardindes in the marina (it did *very* well). Ed did point people to the same area that John and Zeland were fishing, but they didn’t stay long enough it seems. Darn. Patience is a virtue! Ed is of the opinion that his own skunk is a symptom of the same sort of impatience. Bad Ed!

As you can see, weather on this side of the hill could not be more different from what it is in the valley. We’ve had a marine layer all morning so far, and temps have been in the 60′s. We hear it’s quite a cooker over there. Tell you what – we’ll split the diff with you :)
