Capitola: There is no direction left to go but up!

Colleen and Josh and rock fish
The weather was *beautiful* on the water today. So beautiful in fact that the fish, for the most part, took a vacation along with the rest of us and for the most part wouldn’t bite on a darned thing all day.

There were exceptions – Kurtis caught four nice flatties outside the harbor, of course DD in the previous post, there was one boat we had out that came in with three limits of rock cod that we didn’t get a picture of or anything cuz we were way too busy, and there’s Colleen and Josh here.

Colleen and Josh here left late today – between 11:30 and 12:00 – and fished last year’s Sponge Bob area ’til 4:30 or so — and they actually managed to collect a nice little batch of rock fish there. They were using frozen squid bits on shrimp fly rigs. A very nice catch given today’s status quo.

The day started really promisingly – there were a bunch of sardines just outside the marina here that Kurtis started jigging up – he ended up with 60 nice live bait in a half our. Those fish never came into the wharf, and spread out not to be seen again en masse for the rest of the day.

We wish we could elaborate better on the wharf situation today, but Ed was so busy that he didn’t really have time to pay attention (that, and he probably actually forgot a bunch of stuff). If one of you kind readers who was fishing the wharf today has a sum up for us, please by all means post a comment so others can read up on it.
