Santa Cruz: Whole lot of catching, somewhat less keeping

Tom and lings
Here’s Tom with a couple lings and a copper and some browns he caught motor trolling today. He released about 15 undersized lings before he got the two keepers! He was fishing from Natural Bridges to the lighthouse using anchovies on some special thing he’s been perfecting. To the trained eye, it looks like a halibut leader with a spinner blade in front of it.
