Capitola: Poseidon gift wraps special present for Myron

Myron and birthday catch
Happy Birthday Myron!

Myron’s getting the hang of this – he went out this morning and landed a flattie on the first cast!! He was fishing Capitola reef using live sardines on a halibut rig (he jigged the sardines up yesterday). This is Myron’s second-ever Halibut and by his account it was a pretty fun catch. He initially tried to net it, but it got out. He figured he’d lost the fish but he left the drag on and the fish played out some line with the hook still set. Second time he brought it in he used a gaff. The brown (check out the size!) came in on the *second* cast using the same setup.
