Capitola: A ways to go for the bucket list yet…

Eddie and Damian and flatty and rock cod
Eddie and Damian were fishing with live sardines off Soquel point and caught this 23 inch halibut along with two black and one brown rock cod. Damian said he was jigging all the bait while Eddie was getting all the fish, but he reserved a boat for Sunday so he can get his turn at bat.

It was again a slow day on the wharf though we saw a few perch and kingfish. We have had a harbor seal hanging around that’s been stealing bait – even Ed got tricked into feeding it some. It might be time to try some lures like hair razers or swim baits to discourage the little fellow.

Bait has not yet come into the wharf yet this evening and it looks a bit thinner than it did last night. This morning everyone who jigged and told said it was pretty abundant all morning long just outside the marina.

Capitola: Too bad his name is not Herman

Monkster and two flatties
Phil tried for salmon early this morning with no success. He came back to Capitola, jigged up 15 sardines, took them over to 60 feet of water outside the harbor, and proceeded to harvest these two: 15 and 16 pounders! The bait jigging occurred at about 9:00am and the harvesting began at about 9:30am – so obviously bait was pretty easy to come by again this morning. Phil is happy to be back in the swing, and justifiably so. Happy dining Phil!

Capitola: We are like a telegraph service here

Doug and halibut
Doug caught this 24 pounder in 47 feet of water out in front of the harbor fishing from his boat (which he moors in our marina for the summer). He wanted us to mention to his son Kevin that the flatties are getting larger and he’s saving one for you. Done and done Doug – nice catch!
