Capitola: Hope tomorrow is like today!

Shi and Zhang were part of the same group from the previous post – they were fishing in the same area but caught a bit more of the same sort of stuff – rock crab and assorted rock fish.

We had 13 boats out today, most of them caught rock cod. It was a good day for fishing around Capitola reef. Some of the other boats caught some larger fish but they were in a hurry to get them back to the dinner table so we didn’t get photos.

On the wharf, things were a bit slower today ’til about 12:30pm because we had some swell wrapping around into the bay from the northwest messing things up a bit. Once things got going, people were catching sardines fairly well for a while, though it seems to have slowed down again. We didn’t see anything big again today, though Ed saw Nguyen loose a decent sized one to a sea lion about 7:00pm last night. Through the grape vine we heard that he caught a 22 inch striper later on that evening along and that someone else landed one as well.

Weather was amazing today – quite warm in the morning ’til a breeze picked up, then sunny and breezy the rest of the day. Right now the breeze has laid down a bit again. Tomorrow is supposed to be something like today.
