Capitola: Darn Glenn actually does not like halibut fishing at all

Darn Glenn and halibut
Too boring!

Except when you catch one, which in fact happened for him today. He caught this 12 pounder off Soquel point using a live sardine on a halibut rig. He was out fishing with his boy Josh in about 50 feet of water – this fish bit about 9:00 this morning.

They were going to go hunt down some salmon, but they ran into what everyone else ran into today: it got gustay!! That did not stop the action though.

We had all our boats out today (yay) with only one sightseeing. Of those who were fishing, we saw somewhere in the neighborhood of five skunks. Of the catchers, Aside from Glenn we saw one boat come in with a legal lingcod, and the rest had one or two rock cod of various sizes.

The wharf saw one skate come up on the end, some some perch and kingfish. ZzzzZZzzz

Most people had trouble rounding up some bait today. Fish finders showed plenty of kingfish about, and those have been pretty effective with the halibut. So for the moment they’re really your best bet bait wise.

Capitola: Locals locals everywhere!

Jim and Salmon
We have a whopping TWO pictures today! He almost does not need an excuse, but in case you’re in need,

“We were busy!” – Ed 8/21/2010

Jim hit the water early – 5:30am dark cold are you insane early. It paid off however – he caught these two fish by 8:00am and from what we’ve been able to gather he might well have highlined the fleet today. Which is to say: the radio was mighty quiet.

He was fishing around the MO buoy – initially shallow and later deep. The first fish bit before light 80 feet down. After the sun started peeking out the fish went down to 200 feet. These fish are 9 and 11 pounds respectively.

Nice catch Jim!
