Santa Cruz: Nice lings off steamers

Phil just came in with a couple of nice 8 pound lings that he caught fishing live sardines just off steamer lane. We were a bit slow on the draw with the camera – by the time we got around to it he already had his fillets.

Phil reports that there’s tons of bait outside the Capitola marina now – sardines, mackerel, and huge jacksmelt.

Got a nice confirmation on the jacksmelt thing: we just had a rental come into Capitola with three and a half coolers full of jacksmelt! If you’re into jacksmelt, this is prime fishing right now.
