Great fishing today with lingcod and lots of olive, blue, brown, canary and red pacific snapper. Fun!
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

Nice run up the coast for Jurassic fishing. Very nice quality rockfish but with the south swell in town the lingcod bite wasn’t happening.
Happy 4th of July! Our Jurassic Park trip was awesome. Non stop action of big, and some medium sized fish. Biggest Ling was 16 pounds and caught by 8 year-old Ethan from the east bay. Dad came in second with a 13 pounder. Great trip!!! In case anyone’s interested in salmon… salmon is slow. Most boats 0 to one fish.
Run for salmon today but the salmon had a different plan. Tried all day and finally found one 20+ pound slug to bring home. Perfect water and weather.
Awesome water day again as we headed out to Jurassic Park for bigs. As soon as we dropped in we’re hooked up lingcod. Got a couple lings then we hooked into a five-foot Wolf Eel. This is the second Wolf Eel in 15 years! Not pretty but they’re good eating. Got a few more big rockfish then headed closer to shore for rockfish. Lots of fun and lots of action.
Out for salmon today with perfect weather and water conditions. We found ’em! Nice fat salmon and they’re still close to Santa Cruz.
Another salmon trip and conditions looked perfect! Did manage to bring home a big one.
Off to the salmon fishing grounds again. We got ’em. These fish are big!
Considering the forecasted winds this afternoon we decided to fish for salmon. Good thing we did too. Salmon are still in town and they’re big!
Local potluck trip today and the fishing was red hot! Almost too much fish.
Great weather for our local potluck trip on Father’s Day. Dad Jeff and his two, rather competitive offspring, rolled up their sleeves and went to work. After finishing up with lingcod and pacific snapper we came into the halibut grounds to top off the fish box with a nice hali. Parker wins with the trifecta of snapper, lingcod and halibut. Hunter gets the biggest smile and champion photographer award. Dad, well he gets to enjoy the non-stop fun, laughter and a Father’s Day gift he’ll never forget.
Out to Jurassic for lingcod and big reds again. As soon as we dropped in it was game on. Got some nice lingcod, pacific red snapper and petrale sole! Happy Father’s Day to Grandpa and Dad.
Awesome as it gets. Water was pretty flat calm with no wind. Fish were biting like crazy. Big red pacific snapper and a mix of other rockfish.
Headed to Jurassic for lings and big snapper. Wind chased us out so came closer to shore to finish up. Great time and big reds to seven pounds!
Jurassic again for lings and big reds. Water was good and so was the fishing. Great catch!
Skipped salmon (slow) to fish lingcod and snapper. Filled the cooler!
Was hoping for a lot of salmon today but the bite was tough. The good part is everyone’s eating salmon tonight.
Out to Jurassic Park with our happy group from Reno where it was 100 degrees. It was in the 50s where we were fishing. Got our bait then went for lingcod and we got ’em. Water got big early so headed closer to shore for the rockcod and we nailed ’em good!
Awesome Jurassic Park trip with our friends from Placerville. As soon as we dropped in Ed was hooking up with lingcod. Came home with a box of lingcod and red pacific snapper. Great whale show and perfect weather.
Salmon fishing was HOT today. Minnesota tag team done right. Good job!
Salmon fishing was really good today and the fish are big!
Flat calm water for our salmon trip today. The fish were hungry! As soon as we dropped in we started hooking up. These are big fish! Wind came up early.
Salmon fishing is still slow so we elected to go to Jurassic Park instead. Got live bait and as soon as we dropped in the fish started biting. Came in closer for the rockcod and it was non-stop action. Congratulations to Julie for graduating.
Very nice weather for our local potluck today and along with a great whale encounter, we nailed the fish BIG TIME! Got a great mix of olive, blue, brown, canary, and red pacific snapper.
Salmon trip today so we headed down to Moss Landing. Not much going on so tried up the coast a bit and found fish. Nice whale show today too.
Local potluck today and again the winds were a challenge. Fortunately for our group of six the fish were biting… big time! Hammered out limits of brown, olive, blue, canary, and red pacific snapper. Great day!
Off to the Jurassic fishing grounds but the wind was not our friend today. Fished hard for hours and managed a few lingcod an a couple dozen rockcod.
Beautiful water conditions for our local potluck trip. Fished up the coast and were rewarded with nice blue, olive, brown and red pacific snapper. Fun!
With all the good news from the commercial fleet our group opted for salmon. We tried hard but sometimes, thankfully not that often, you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Decided to go for salmon today with Josh and his five kids ranging 9 to 15 years-old. Papa Josh had his hands full! Everyone got to fight a salmon today and our big fish winner was 12 year-old Tyler from Stockton.
