Capitola: Can you get sunburn from limelight?

So – sigh – here’s Kurtis once again with his highliner catch for the day. This is a 65 pound (55 dressed) thresher shark – he hooked up on it flylining a live sardine off Soquel point this morning. He’s been going out prepared for these of late with some pretty heavy gear, as we’ve known they’ve been in the area. He’s been using a braided line top shot with a 80 pound monofilament leader. In all he caught two fish today, this one was larger than the other by something close to an order of magnitude. Larry also caught one today, and Dan had three on and lost all three (though he did get a eight pound flattie as a consolation prize).
