    I'm thinking of heading to Santa Cruz Friday and fishing SC/Capitola afternoon and evening and then heading down to Montery Saturday morning. Looks like it will just be me.

    Updates on Cabrillo Mole

    It doen't sound like anyone is too sure when phase 1 will be finished. As for fishing from the Mole, it should be allowed although you just never know anymore.

    Given that the net is not in the water it's probably simply there to bring fish up (as are most hoop nets this time of the year).

    Waiting to hear from my grandson. I want to take him fishing and want him to catch some fish. At the Coast Guard Pier it's a little different type of fishing, not necessarily the best for him although it's true there are usually fish there. But it takes a little more finesse for some of them.

    Actually would love to hit SC and Capitola on one day and head south to Monterey for a second day.

    Thanks. I should have asked the broader Monterey-Santa Cruz question. I'm not too sure if I can change my schedule now.

    Record bat ray...

    A lot of "big" bat rays have been reported over the years but it's hard to say how accurate some of these (guesstimates?) actually were. ≈ 220 Lbs. — Ventura Pier, early ‘80s Source: PFIC 203 Lbs. — Stearns Wharf (Santa Barbara), James Elledge...

    Striper bass becoming less and less

    Well, I do not see any long term sustained improvement unless the state changes its mind which I doubt. Some years are still good while others are not dependent, to some degree, on the rain and water releases (which is one of the many factors in the equation).

    Capitola Wharf — 23 years

    It's hard to see the 4-5 long, and seemingly disconnected, dorsal rays but it's a sand sole. Sanddabs are always left eyed, this is right eyed. Here's another sand sole from Capitola that shows the "free" rays a little better. Sand Sole Species: Psettichthys melanostictus (Girard, 1854)...
