2016 ends with a bang!!

Our final week of 2016 went out with a bang as we had some awesome rock fishing on all the trips with jumbo Olives and Vermillion topping the bill.

Lingcod were around but a little scarce until the final day were we landed 9 on 2 drifts. They were nice quality and upwards of 9 lbs. We had a spectacular whale performances as well with Orcas, Gray and Humpbacks being seen on a daily basis.

The crabbing has been rather slow here in Santa Cruz but always enough for a meal or 6. The weather has been cool in the mornings but heating up nicely during the day. Water has been staying a chilly 52.

Now that Lingcod and Rockfishing are closed until April- Look for our new Winter Adventure combo trips coming soon in the next day or so.. Cheers!
