    Re: Santa Cruz Wharf Report

    I caught some keeper Rock Crabs, an undersize dungie, and a bunch of slender crabs.

    Has anyone caught a spider crab or a keeper size Slender crab?

    Thank you!! Actually going surf fishing next weekend. This will come in handy!

    Wink Santa Cruz Wharf Report

    Hello All,

    Long time lurker here, first time posting. Any reports on Santa Cruz Wharf? Trying to balance an infant with fishing, in cold rainy weather. We know capitola or any other jetty would be better, but keeping the car next you seems like a better option for now. Any advice would be appreciated too Trying to head out once the storm clears next week. Thanks peeps.
