Capitola: Nice opener redux

A pretty good opening day for salmon!  Our general sense of things on the radio is that quite a few nice fish were caught.  Most of the action was in water between 220 to 240 feet deep.  In the morning fish were caught shallow about 40-60 feet down, and as the day progressed they moved deeper towards 200 feet.

Not too much going on with our rentals (we only had two out fishing for salmon). One boat had two strikes on krippled anchovies behind a dodger out past the second yellow buoy.  They were fishing  in about 120 feet of water with 60 feet of line out over a 1 pound ball.  Those strikes were likely salmon, so maybe we’ll have some salmon action on the rentals this year.
