Capitola: Not many boats, but the action is picking up a bit

Alex with Nellie and Kelly and rock cod
Nellie and Kelly went fishing with their dad Alex today and landed a total of 13 rock fish between them. They were fishing off Capitola reef using chunks of anchovies on a surf leader rig. They had a blast – good call dad!

We only had six boats out fishing today with three skunks. The other boat that caught fish came in with black, blue, and brown rock fish along with some kingfish and sardines.

The wharf saw some action today – Roy Boy caught an 18.5 inch striper down in the surf line with a live sardine under a bobber. We also had some sightings of additional stripers in the water down there – could be some action tonight yet.

There’s still some bait around the marina, though Ed didn’t get a chance to go fish for any. There were dolphins and sea lions and birds working it though.

Beautiful weather remains with us – it’ll be a nice week to play hookie from work or whatever :)
