#HappyNewYear from MEGA-BITE Santa Cruz Fishing Charters
Monterey Bay #fishingreport 

December 17 – Fun fun fun! Ran out to the crab grounds - ran some crab pots AND prawn pots and lo and behold there were crabs and about 7 pounds of #coonstripeprawns, and we even got some small #octopus! Then headed to the fishing grounds and must have caught over 20 canaries that we had to throw back (according to our brilliant government canaries are endangered). Had fun catching blue and black #pacificsnapper but wanted to focus more on #lingcod. Hooked 15 lingcod and brought home five. The other ten lingcod were either short or no-shows. Got buzzed by a #greatwhiteshark just a foot away from the boat.

Weather was perfect and will be perfect for the next week! Snapper and lingcod season ends in only 10 more days!
Merry Christmas Happy Holidays from the MEGA-BITE crew at the Santa Cruz Harbor!

#MontereyBay #fishingreport December 9 – Snapper trip again today and again the water was flat calm. Fish were hungry too. Got into the BIG red, olive, blue, black, copper pacific snapper to four pounds plus lingcod. The other five reds all went over three pounds. Nice haul today.

#FishingReport December 2-3 – Ran out to the crab grounds to reset our gear and the crab counts are definitely on the rise.

December 4 – Snapper trip again today but the fish weren't cooperating much. Water was a little chewed up in the morning then it got real nice late morning early afternoon. Hooked into some sharks and landed one. We think we were hooked into a 100+ pound #sevengillshark. Fought for at least 15 minutes before it broke off. Good fight and big circles under the boat. Greg and I might go #sharkhunting this week with steel leaders and whole live fish for bait. There's plenty of croakers, mackerel and jack smelt around for bait. Let us know if your interested. We have good weather forecasted all week.
