Capitola: Kurtis: Mighty Hunter

Kurtis and flatties
The stenographer shadowed Kurtis like a stray puppy dog today but no biscuits were forthcoming. Kurtis is on his usual roll. Throughout the morningВ  there were probably a total of 6 or so boats in the area all following roughly the same drift, but as far as the stenographer saw, only Kurtis here had any sort of luck. Which he doubtless will take offense to – there was no luck involved, etc etc. We think animal sacrifice is involved.

Anyway, obviously they’re out there, straight out of the harbor. If you want to give it a try, just head out to the general area where all the other boats are drifting and try to stay off the reefs. The stenographer did not quite stay off the reefs and ended up catching a releasing a nice vermillion. Those won’t be legal ’til May 1st.

Speaking of wishing it was May 1st, one of our rentals caught and relesased two big lingcod and about a dozen rock cod fishing off Soquel point using halibut rigs and squid. Good thing May is just around the corner, we may have some very nice rock cod fishing this year.

On the wharf, not much going on – a few perch here and there and one good sized skate. We’re seeing more pelicans diving around and fish finders were registering small bait balls in the area. Could be pinheads, could be smelt, could be some of those sardines from yesterday. The take away from this is that the ocean around here is waking up, so you might wanna start thinking about getting out here.

Capitola: It is not often you see Darn Glenn getting jealous but….

Jim and 17.5 pound salmon
Here’s Jim with the gem of today’s limits – a 17.5 pounder. He caught this fishing in 340 feet of water 290 feet down using a purple haze hoochie behind a red flasher (which we will now call a PHHBARF). Darn Glenn was out with Jim on this trip and partook in the festivities by catching his own limit.

We heard of additional boats doing quite well today – Josh and John and Shawn went out on John’s boat today and came back with three limits. PHHBARF in the same location.

Word of mouth has it that quite a few folks did equally well out there, though on the radio today we heard many boats talking about catching one fish, Some were talking about getting into some boccachios too – apparently they were getting in the way a bit.
