Capitola: Rafael brings bite back with a vengeance

Raphael and nice flattie
Rafael scored this beautiful 26 pounder off Soquel point today fishing live sardines. People are getting the sardines all over the place, though they’re mostly between New Brighton and the cement ship. Whales were feeding on them from close to the beach out to two miles out.The whales put on a really nice show while Ed and Kurtis were trolling around looking for seabass. Kurtis scored three, two over 40 pounds, one small (legal) one. Dan got one little (legal) one, and Ed got two small (legal) ones. They saw seven schools of big fish out there.Ed caught and released a 12 pound silver salmon flylining a live sardine. A couple of the rentals also had the pleasure of releasing silvers today. Pretty nice to see them swim away.
