Capitola: The ramp is down

Ed and whopper sardine
Couple of items:

First, the ramp and floating dock at the Capitola wharf are finally down! The city plans to keep it down for this coming weekend, then bring it up for a couple of days next week for maintenance. Following that it’ll be down for the season – finally!

Here you see Ed with a whopper sardine – we’ve seen a whole bunch of these in the neighborhood since yesterday. Ed got this (and quite a few others) using a thrownet from the wharf and is generally available in and around the Capitola marina.

There’s also a bunch of the same sort of bait straight out of the Santa Cruz harbor.

It would not be surprising to see a bunch of *big* flatties, seabass, and lings show up with this kind of food around.
