Capitola: Ed has lost his ability to think up titles

Doug and lingcod
Here’s Doug with the largest fish we saw come in today – a stocky 25 inch lingcod. He and his friends were fishing in a rental over surfer’s reef using rock cod jigs and chunks of anchovies. His boat also released a bunch of small rock cod. Congratulations Doug!

We again had everything out today – yay – and we are pretty sure we only saw one or two skunks in the mix. Most boats came in with at least some and in many case lots of rock cod. One of the rentals saw another one land a flattie, but we didn’t see it on the wharf so no picture, sorry.

The wharf has been slow today – Ed says he didn’t see anything remarkable come up. Someone mentioned that they got a skate off the end but we didn’t see it. There were of course perch. The derby by the way starts at 6:00am tomorrow morning – bring the kids – it’s always a fun time for all. We are going to haul out the video camera and get a few minutes of derby action tomorrow.

We have seen birds and sea lions and dolphins working bait just outside the marina all day long today. We didn’t have a chance to go out and jig any up for the wharf anglers, but we’re pretty sure we’d have done well if we had. Last night sardines eventually made it to the wharf – we’re betting on a replay of that tonight.
