Capitola: Nevermind……

Well – we thought we had a nice picture of Marc and a barracuda, but the picture is incomplete so we can’t post it. Anyway the deal is that barracuda have moved in down toward Monterey and are sort of replacing seabass there. Reports of multiple hookups are not hard to come by.

Closer to home, it’s been super super slow with the rentals – only two this week. Our intrepid Katie went out in her boat Ses Serpent and finally got her skunk off with a couple of nice rock cod. She caught them just outside the yellow buoy off Soquel point using squid on on a halibut rig. Congratulations Katie!

Wednesday morning a large school of large seabass were spotted off New Brighton (no catches reported), and Ed saw a humpback whale yesterday just off the cement ship. In general there’s been a lot of bait around in the form of sardines, along with a lot of red tide.

People have been catching sardines off the wharf more in the evening lately than any other time of the day – but they have in fact been catching them.

Capitola: When it comes to ghost hunting, better late than never

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 99516 * We’re a bit late with this one – Marc and Logan caught this one last Tuesday the 6th. But it’s a 46 pounder so definitely worth a post. He caught this outside Monterey harbor just outside the yellow buoy fishing from his kayak. He was using dead squid on a halibut rig mooching about 45 feet down. It was a half hour fight. Gee, that’s hard to imagine hunh. Wow, nice fish Marc!A few of the regulars here spent time down there as well last week and early this week. The bite was on fire toward the end of last week though it slowed down this Monday and Tuesday. See the next post for a taste of what took the seabass’ place…
