Capitola: It is a good thing we actually know these guys names

Nathan and Matt and Andrew and walleye perch
Nathan and Matt and Andrew took to the wharf late this afternoon and wrestled up 10 walleye perch! They were fishing between the gate and the sink on the east side of the wharf with surf leader setups and little bits of shrimp. Looks like these guys are on the path to stardom – this catch is an order of magnitude larger than the last one they got off the wharf. Way to go you guys!

Elsewhere on the wharf we saw one skate and some medium sized kingfish find fresh air. The skate was at the end of the wharf past the restaurant, and the kingfish were all over the place. Lots of action for the kids today.

RIght now pelicans are working just off the end of the wharf – hopefully this means bait!

Ed is again going fishing tomorrow – hopefully he’ll bag that ghost he’s been wishing on all season long.

Capitola: Fish tacos tonight!

Nocile John  Jason  Sherman and rock fish
Ed lost the piece of paper that had these guys names on it, so we are drawing from his 1950′s era Polaroid photographic memory (which if you remember Polaroids from back there, they were notsogood and kinda smelled). They were pretty excited about getting posted, so our shame will be multiplied if we messed up the names.

That said, here are Nocile, John, Jason, and Sherman with the rock fish and two lingcod that they caught today! They were fishing out in front of O’Neil’s using a combination of sardines and kingfish on halibut rigs and rock cod rigs. They said most of the fish bit earlier in the morning. Of special note: these guys highlined even Darn Glenn, whose fish were so small that Ed didn’t feel right taking a picture of them.

We had 6 boats out with three skunks. We blame it on the swell which continues to stir things up at this moment. Bait is very difficult to find, but there’s some in the marina and further out. A fish finder will save you lots and lots of time.

Capitola: Yay alcohol!

James and Sev and rock fish
Here’s the promised post from yesterday. This is James and Sev with the mess o rock fish they caught yesterday. They were fishing off a secret spot using squid on rock cod jigs, and the fish bit early in the morning (before 9:00am).

The title is not a reference to anything regarding their fishing trip (other than the getting permission part).
