Small but, it’ll do…

Halibut - small but legal
Dave got this legal halibut working the shallows at Capitola reef along with a nice limit of grass cod, and he lost a big ling. Halibut was caught on a halibut rig with a dead anchovie working the edge of the kelp. Lingcod was lost because the treble hook broke (darn!).

Kinda slow

Since Monday, there were two legal halibut caught off the wharf (Capitola) using frozen anchovies, and one on a rental boat using swim bait. We’ve not had many rental boats out so it’s hard to say if that really means anything. A private boater out of the harbor picked up an 18 pound halibut trolling off Soquel point in 50 feet of water.
