Capitola: Gloomy days rock for fishing

Feddy and lingcod
Feddy was fishing in a rental in front of O’Neil’s using live sardines on a halibut rig – that was just the ticket for this 26 inch ling here, which bit this morning sometime. His boat also came in with a half dozen rock cod – blacks, coppers, browns – that they caught on rock cod jigs with strips of squid in the same area.

We had 16 boats out today – all fishing – and only three skunks! The majority of boats came in with at least half a dozen rock cod.

Today was kind of overcast all day long. The sun licked the beach for just a short while about an hour ago, else it’s been gray and cool. Bait was close to the wharf starting about an hour ago, as far as we know it’s still in pretty close. No problem jigging up later today – it was farther out toward the mile reef in the morning.
