Capitola: Red buoy delivers again

Michael and Peter and rock fish
Michael and Peter high lined the rentals today with these nice Bolina rock fish. They were fishing all over the place but didn’t have much luck ’til they came back and focused on the area around the new buoy. Tensions were high, as Michael got stuck with catching all the kingfish while Peter casually raked in all the Bolina. We kid of course – they were quite jovial about the whole thing. Nice catch you guys!

On the wharf, not much action. Late this afternoon Ed managed to jig up some sardines which were quickly consumed by anxious anglers, though it all came to naught. So far. Ed is still trying to stoke the flames by making bait runs, so there is some hope. Some.

Bait was weird today. It was available this morning early with little trouble, but by 9 or so it kinda disappeared. Sometime between 9 and noon it came back enough so that Larry mentioned that he saw bait jumping at the edge of the marina when he came back from halibut fishing. And as you may gather, Ed has been doing ok jigging some up over the last few hours. There’s no indication that it is moving in however, so Ed is going to have to keep doing shuttle runs tonight. Til he runs out of gas. Which, by the look of him, will be soon.

Capitola: Where did that vermillion come from?

Jessie Greg Ene Lez and rock cod
Jessie, Greg, Ene, and Lez got themselves into a mess of rock fish today when they went fishing all over the place here in Capitola. They weren’t really sure where each of these various fish were caught – they just tried a bunch of spots using shrimp fly rigs with squid bits. They said they found out about us here from a YouTube video that Rudy made, so mad props to Rudy – thanks! Anyway, this crew said they’ll be back, and we’re looking forward to it.

Capitola: One in the box!

Larry and Eric and halibut
Larry sounded like a broken record this morning on the radio: “One in the box!!” again and again. He and Eric were on fire today, which explains why the entire fleet of halibut seekers fell in line behind him through the morning. From what we gather to no avail too – Larry seemed to be the only one catching. What is it with this guy??

Anyway, they were fishing over by the yellow can outside the harbor. They got their hands on a nice collection of live squid, which may have had something to do with their luck. The fish ranged from 6 to 14 pounds.

The stenographer was not as lucky and is sorely tempted to find some topic on which to rib the sheriff over today, but he has to concede that once again Lawrence has wrestled up another fine catch.
