Capitola: They need to make a bigger version of Soquel Point

Corey and ling
And here’s Corey – same story! Right around 10:00am, same spot, using a frozen chovie on a halibut rig. This one is also just legal, but again – a fine dinner. They said they had something else on – something *big* – but they had more fun watching Myron, whose story we will now tell:

So – yeah – Myron got into a little something today (in the same spot) that, well — he hooked up on what was about a 45 to 50 pound thresher shark using a live sardine. It bit on his first drop, so he was one happy camper, until it came time to actually get it into the boat. Basically Myron ended up doing kinda “laps” around his boat as he fought the thing, and he fell down a few times, and kinda almost fell out of the boat a few times. So – lots of folks actually got a lot of entertainment value from it for about a half hour (!). Too bad it ultimately cut the line, it would have been a nice trophy.

All the bait is still down by the ship, it’s the same stuff, and there was lots of it today. Ed also saw some dark water outside the marina this afternoon with pelicans diving on it. He’s hoping it’s finally some anchovies showing up. The swell seems to be subsiding a bit right now as well. So – if things keep going this way, it might be a pretty nice weekend.

Capitola: The magic half hour

Roy and ling
Roy hooked up on a legal ling today off Soquel point (where else!) using squid on a halibut rig. This one bit right around the same time that Kurtis’ hog did – about 10:00am, and in fact Kurtis said that pretty much everything he caught today (or saw others catch (which wasn’t much)) happened around the same time. Before and after that, nada. Oh well – can’t argue with catching dinner.

Capitola: Oink oink OINK!!!

Kurtis and Hawg Halibut
Not many rentals out today, but Kurtis kinda made up for that with this’n here. This 35 pounder bit in 45 feet of water off Soquel point this morning around 10 a.m. He was fishing live sardines which he jigged up this morning off platforms. OOO-INK dude – *nice* fish! Looks like a showdown with Darn Glenn a-brewin’!
