Capitola: Kingfish rule the roost today

Pedro and Martha and ling and halibut
Pedro and Martha highlined our rentals today with this ling and halibut assortment. They were fishing the second kelp bed off the wharf using kingfish they jigged up just outside the marina. Congratulations you two!

We had seven rentals out today with two skunks. Several boats had some nice browns from the red buoy and between the mile reef and the red buoy, and one boat came in with a bucket of kingfish.

Bait seemed plentiful in the morning provided you had a fish finder. Balls were dense if you got on them. It looked like it was coming close to the wharf, then it just disbursed back out to the edge of the marina.

Ed spent much of the day jigging bait for the live bait well, so he didn’t get to pay much attention to what was going on on the wharf. We think we saw someone land a skate sometime this afternoon but at the moment our eye witness is doing shore boat duty so we’re not going to commit to that. :)

Weather was pretty nice – this morning it was cloudy and flat. It burned off later with a light breeze, then layed down, and right now we’re just waiting for the regular evening easterly. If tomorrow does what it did today we will not be unhappy.

Capitola: Sheriff Larry Bores Us To Death With His Constant Success

Larry and salmon
Sheriff Larry bagged limits once again! He made it seem easy although most boats were having a hard time today. He caught this 16 pounder and a 10 pounder fishing in 300 feet 120 down using a PHHBARF. He mentioned that a few other boats did well mooching in the same area at the same depth. There was LOTS of bait out there today – krill so thick that you could see trails where the salmon were plowing through it. Lots of whale action too – Larry said he saw a blue whale breach with a mouth so full of krill that it was draining out the sides of its mouth. Wow.

Capitola: Kayak Jim earns his stripes

Jim and striped bass
Kayak Jim scored right off the bat this morning with this 12 pound striper. He caught it using a sardine on a halibut rig off the jetty. Pretty sweet – he was only out fishing for a couple hours. Nice catch Jim!
