Capitola: Who needs live bait?

Larry and first striper of the 2009
Guess what folks? Here’s Larry with the first striper (wiper) of the year! He caught this beauty on the east side of the beginning of the wharf using shrimp on a surf leader setup. The line was 6 pound test – the fish is 10 pounds! It was pretty fun brining it in: in addition to the light line, it was kind of a flimsy rod and the drag was sticky, so it took a while to subdue what (to this gear) was a freaking monster. Congratulations Larry. The *other* Larry (the Sheriff one) is rather green right now.
