The blue fin tuna were running but that is exactly what they were doing – running. They are not biting. The water was a little bumpy in early morning but by late morning it was ‘very nice’.

We will have fishing report to publish Wednesday. Come fish with us. April 29, 2016 We fished the Soquel Hole for Salmon today. We ended up with two nice Kings. We stopped and pulled Crab Pots and brought in 15 crabs. The wind and swell is suppose to improve by Sunday. Everyone had a blast. Come fish with Go Fish Santa Cruz Charters on the beautiful Miss Beth. Captain Jimmy Rubin will get you on the fish.
