Capitola: A little more of everything

Shawn and halibut
So, today a total of five halibut came in here, three you’ve seen, one undersized one off the middle of the wharf, and this one. Here’s Shawn with a flatty she hooked up on using a live sardine around the kelp beds off privates.

The bait situation has gotten dramatically better in the last two days. Today as we mentioned earlier we’re seeing monster sardines up to 12 inches – a meal in themselves – plus some smaller ones down towards the cement ship in the five to six inch range. All very jiggable.

It also remains somewhat spooky here.
