Capitola: Those do not look like begonias???

PJ and Alana and grass cod and brown rock cod
PJ and Alana went fishing with Tim on a rental today and did well with decent numbers of rock cod. They had some trouble identifying some of what they caught so they released a bunch that they likely didn’t have to. In the end they came in with eight fish.

We had everything out once again (and boy can we feel it in the achy bones). Today things were not quite as clear cut. Many boats came in skunked, but some boats – PJ and Alana’s here for example- couldn’t keep them off the hook. Tim said that fish bit wherever he dropped hooks. So hummmmm. Dunno how to call that ‘cept to say That’s Fishin’.

It was however a beautiful day on the water! It started cool and sunny in the morning, the a mighty fog rolled in that put a chill on, then that fog burned off as the morning progressed. Once the fog was gone it was lower 70′s, sunny, mild – nice.

Bait seemed scarcer today that it has been, but just 10 minutes ago Ed saw someone jigging sardines off the wharf. So it seems they’re being selective about who’s hook they bite on as well.

We have a video of all the goings on with the fishing derby today, but it’s taking forever to upload so don’t expect that ’til later tonight or maybe tomorrow (the upload aborted the first time we tried it – not sure why).

Capitola: We are not the New York Times

Butters and lucky rock fish
So Butters is a pretty happy guy. This little rock fish you see him holding here doesn’t look like much, but the circumstances under which it was caught certainly suggest good things to come. We all chipped in and bought him a bait rod cuz he’s been so very helpful around here lately. The fish you see here was from the very first cast of his new bait rod – and right next to the hoist to boot. Pretty awesome – it’s actually not often that rock cod come up off the wharf, so definitely a good omen for Butters.

Capitola: All that glitters is gold

Jack and Rob and vermillion
Jack and Rob fished Adam’s reef today using strips of squid on rock cod jigs and struck gold with some vermillion! The stenographer is thinking of wandering over that way tomorrow – he really really likes vermillion. Nice find you guys!
