Capitola: Maybe if you bribe them they will tow you around

Anthony and Bubba and brown, cabezon, and grass cod
Anthony and Bubba sampled the area hot spots and scraped up this nice collection of rock fish. Pictured here you see a brown, a cabezon, and two grass cod – these were caught using swim baits in and around kelpy reefs. They noted that the bite was a late one – it started happening for them after noon sometime.

Another couple of our regulars spent most of the day out on their canoe fishing the kelp beds as well, and they actually landed a huge mess of fish (two limits). However, they didn’t really have the gear to keep the fish in good shape after they caught it, and pretty much all of the catch got leatherbacked. So – we’re not going to take a picture of a pile of essentially pre-cooked fish and therefore you don’t have to believe us if you don’t want to (but it’s true).
