Capitola: Late start poses no problems for the master

Ed and ling
Here’s Ed with a beautiful 27 inch lingcod. He caught this off Soquel point outside the yellow buoy using a live mackerel on a halibut rig. He had encounters with a few others – a 21 incher that he released, and something bigger than the 27 incher that he, in fact, …farmed.

There’s still bait around – mackerel is coming in pretty nicely off the wharf. We had a couple rentals out but they didn’t do too well other than a few jacksmelt here and there. ‘Course again – not many boats out means what we see is not a very good sample of what’s going on (witness Ed’s catch).

The forecast is for some pretty great weather possibly straight through the weekend, so that plus the fact that the end of season alarm clock is ticking… Well you really should be fishing shouldn’t you :)
