Capitola: I am ready for my closeup Mr Warhol

Barukh is a regular reader of the report here, so he was pretty jazzed about landing this striper on the wharf today. Here it is dude – your (first) 15 minutes :)

He was fishing close to the surf line flylining a mackerel which he jigged up in the same area with a bait jig. A school of stripers was swimming around in the area when this one was caught – no one else caught one. But Steve (fishing closer to the beach) caught a 26 inch halibut on a live sardine. We’d have had a nice picture of it but Ed was kinda busy jigging up baits. Problem was that bait was a little more hard to come by toward the latter part of the day, so he was kinda busy.

While he was on his way down to take a picture, he had another one on but it popped off. And as Ed was walking back he saw some people catching shiners by the gate. Ed would have jigged some of those up, but he wanted to engage the stenographer before he bailed out. Good call Ed :)

So today – bait wise, *off the hook* in the morning and especially toward the outside of the marina. It was nuts. And sea lions are still hanging around – they’re stuffed.

Weather wise – this morning a bit drizzly, and a bit breezy, but that all laid down by about 8:00am. It stayed really nice ’til about 1:00pm when the winds started coming up again. We’re definitely moving into a summer pattern here.
