Capitola: Dum dum. Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum TADADADA!!!!

John and two stripers
This is John with his second and third stripers from the wharf this year. He caught these using a live sardine on a dead man’s sliding rig without a bobber close to the beach. John is pretty much the epic highliner of the day with these.

Elsewhere on the wharf folks are catching some sardines end to end, quite a few shiners coming up, and we’ve seen some pretty decent sized walleyes. Folks are working on that evening striper bite right now.

Away from the wharf, bait is in the marina from the outer edge all the way into the beach. It’s not thick but it’s all over the place.

Also of interest, Kurtis said he saw a 12-14 foot great white shark cruising around in 30 feet of water off New Brighton beach today.

Capitola: They are as fun to catch as they are nasty to look at

Brian and skate
Brian reeled up this shovelnose skate this afternoon fishing at the gate using a squid on a surf leader. These are nice fighters if you hook them, and some say they make pretty good scallops. This one went back into the ocean though.

Capitola: Girls always get the best fish

Lisa and rock fish
Lisa was fishing with friends in a rental today and managed to high-line the boat with these two – a brown and a grass rock fish. They were using shrimp fly jigs with sardine bits.

The first of these two bit around 8:15 this morning, the other was also a morning fish. The rest of the day saw just smaller rock fish ’til Sal hooked up on something that he fought for 30-40 minutes ’til it broke his 20 pound test!

You will doubtless note the gorgeous skies – we have very nice weather today though there’s still a bit of southerly swell.
