Capitola: Anthony went to Joey school

Anthony and striper
Anthony came down this afternoon and just as soon as he tossed a live sardine out under a bobber this little legal schoolie took off with it! Earlier today two other stripers were caught – one was 11 pounds and one was just legal.

Luckily Ed brought in those now precious 24 pieces of bait – they were put to good use by Anthony here, Steve, and a few other people. The only other wharf action we’ve seen today took the form of some walleye perch.

Our swell is even flatter than it was yesterday. It is not completely gone but it is gone enough that halibut should start digging out of their bomb shelters. Weather looks like it’s going to continue the warming trend through the weekend, so it should be a great time to be on the water.

Capitola: At least seiner nets do not get into the rocks

Damien and lingcod
Damien caught this 14 pound lingcod using a live sardine off the old Sponge Bob area. We had 5 boats out fishing today, and all had at least a few fish. Most had a few browns, and there were a few undersized lings. The new orange buoy was producing the most fish (the browns).

Bait was much harder still to find today, but we did see it come into the first row of the marina for a brief period of time. Ed spent about 2 1/2 hours jigging and managed to get 24 pieces.

Capitola: Run Silent – Run Deep – Catch Fish!

Terry and Salmon
The salmon are biting again today! Here’s Terry with the 20 pounder he landed while fishing with Sheriff Larry today. They also boated a 14 and a 10 pounder – all fishing the west side of hole on the bottom using a white kajiki with a red hot spot flasher.
