Capitola: A good day for the little guys

Andrew and Nathan fishing the wharf
Matt brought Andrew and Nathan down to the wharf today to introduce them to the wonderful world of angling. They took to it quickly, as Nathan caught his first fish ever on the first drop – a baby tomcod! They had no problem hooking up a number of walleye perch – they just bit one after the other here just inside the fish cleaning table. In no time at all they’ll be reeling in record stripers – we have a feeling!

Wharf fishing today was in general great for small fish. The swell kept perch active all day all up and down the wharf – they dig the turbulence. Not much else though ’til recently. Ed notes that folks have started having luck jigging up sardines off the end in the last hour or so. A good omen to be sure! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen bait in this close before nightfall.
