Capitola: Oh darn

Allen and rock fish and flattie
Allen wrote this guest blog entry for us last Friday — and then realized he didn’t have our email address. No prob – he got that from us Saturday and sent it. And then we forgot to check the mail. Arrgh. Well Allen, sometimes we’re more “Olds” than “News” here :).

Allen’s entry:

Friday was another good day on the Bay. You would think that Allen should know how to hold a fish for a Photo-Op by now. Like so much else in his life, he tends to take a sideways approach. Allen had Brian Henrickson as a kayak fishing client on Friday. Poking around in the kelp beds with live sardines an a rat-trap rig resulted in a few fat kelp rockfish, and this 8-pound halibut. They caught and released four underlings as well, which bodes well for Fall fishing! Much like our vaunted Stenographer, Henrickson apparently prefers anonymity, or perhaps the “Photographer” may need some more practice?

Capitola: Maybe it is the hat???

Chris and halibut
Chris highlined size wise today with this halibut he caught fishing from a rental inside the yellow buoy in front of O’Neil’s. He was using live sardines on a halibut rig and it bit this morning about 8:00am. We literally saw no other halibut today – even Kurtis and Josh got flat out skunked. So Chris here really has some lucky stars lined up today. This one was 28 inches long. Nice fish Chris!

Capitola: Oh No – Pepe done moved back in

Kyle and rock fish
Kyle and his dad Jeff highlined on sheer poundage today; they brought in two limits of rock cod on their rental for the three people on the boat.

Most boats did not do nearly as well. With the exception of three boats that came in with onesy twosy type rock cod catches, every other rental flew the skunk flag today. Darn darn darn!

Kyle’s boat stayed out an extra half hour and were one of the last boats in, and they said that the fish bit late. So it looks like the problem was that it was just a late bite. Regardless, kind of a bummer though it was another beautiful day on the water.
