Capitola: The Munkster scores again

The Munkster scores again
Phiil grappled with (and won against) this 20 pounder this afternoon fishing live anchovies off the mile reef.

Some of the rental boats scored with some legal (but not the biggest) halibut, some rock cod (mostly browns), a few ling cod, and a couple of hooked-but-lost threshers. Unfortunately we were short staffed today and were unable to get pictures of pretty much most of these. Sorry folks. We need to get something like a “stand here and smile” auto-camera or something.

As you can probably see, the birds are still here, by the way. Lots of them. LOTS. You may want to bring an umbrella if you get my meaning. But – as we said earlier, if you’re missing the wharf fishing we have plenty of kayaks to rent, and of course we have the skiffs – just call ahead of time for those to reserve.

Needless to say, there’s a TON of bait around here right now. It’s too bad there’s no wharf fishing – there are probably lots of fish in the water.

OH – and Kurtis did not fly the skunk flag today. But – all he got today were some relatively small (10 pound) ones. He, like Larry, doesn’t “do” pictures with small fish.
