Hope everyone is having a great start to their holiday weekend! We’ve been getting quite a few calls asking if we are open tomorrow and Labor Day and the answer is YES! Both our stores (Capitola Boat & Bait and Santa Cruz Boat Rentals) are open for business and we will be renting boats as long as the weather cooperates–which it looks like it is going to! (See our earlier post.)
|No glamorous fish like striped bass, halibut, off the wharf, but there has been some action today. Reminder the wharf fishing derby is Monday 6 am till noon.|
|Well, Ed was pacing the deck this morning saying to himself “I could have let boats out today!”…and then a big set would come by and he would feel much better about his decision. AS FOR TOMORROW, AT THIS TIME ED IS GIVING HIS OK FOR THE BOATS TO GO OUT, under the condition that the fog is not the dense low fog that we sometimes see out here. If there is dense fog, you’ll have to wait for it to clear. But at this time we’re hoping that we can get back to business as usual!
The swell today isn’t as big as they were predicting and it isn’t as bad as it was yesterday. We’re crossing our fingers and hoping this trend continues and it turns out to be even smaller tomorrow.
As for the picture, Here’s Jim’s daughter Shea and Jim’s friend Dave with their catch. They caught them in the same area as yesterday 65-75 feet of water, straight out in front. Caught on the troll, 30 feet on the wire and 65 pulls on a small Deep-Six Diver with a silver Apex.
