LIVE BAIT!

Just over the airwaves: Boccie and Kevin just scored about 40 scoops of sardines in the 5-6 inch range. В They’re heading toward the harbor now.

Capitola: Good things

Kurtis reports that he had no problem jigging up 40 sardines by the kelp bed to the east of the marina. They’ve gone east from there along the shore and Josh already has a lmit of stripers! Kurtis said that thus far they’ve had hits on just about every piece of bait they’ve put down.

Boccie and Kevin are on the hunt – more when it happens.

Capitola: Might there be bait?

Today we again had only a few boats out, and they came in with a few rock cod – nothing remarkable. Again though – not many boats == not a very good sample.

This afternoon however it has very rapidly started to look like we might be getting into a bunch of bait. There have been a *lot* of birds working the water straight off the wharf and toward the cement ship. Kurtis got over a really nice size bait ball and jigged up a bunch of sardines, and we’ve seen some sardines come up on bait jigs off the wharf. That, and the stenographer may have seen some extremely phosphorescent water out by his boat this afternoon, which is a pretty good bait sign (when you can see it during the day, it’s *really* going off) .

Boccie is on his way down here now so maybe we’ll have some really good news live bait wise later tonight.
