Capitola: Myron the Mariner workin the dead bait

Myron the Mariner just came in with a 24 inch flattie and a half a dozen quality browns. He couldn’t hold all the browns, so this kinda looks like his last catch. He was fishing dead bait on a halibut rig out by Capitola reef today. Ed is kicking himself audibly at the moment, as he is now wondering why oh why did he spend so much time looking for live bait today. So next week he’ll just use all dead bait :)

Capitola: You are not going to like this

We have been swarn to secrecy. We cannot say who. Or where. Or when. Or pretty much anything other than the following: “Somewhere within the Capitola rental borders these two white seabass bit on live sardines!”. Sorry folks – we’ll get cut off from this meager bit of info if we say more :(

Ed today found skunks on his boat. He had one good takedown in which what remained of the live sardine looked a lot like what a ghost does but that was it for the whole day. Ah – so by the process of elimination you know that these fish are *not* Ed’s. A clue!

Bait was much more scarce today – the seiners have been working overtime and time has been passing, so right now we have mackerel off the wharf and outside the marina, and small balls of sardines in front of the harbor.

Capitola: Soquel Point might be picking up again

Erik caught this 6 pound halibut off Soquel Point this morning. He was using a dead sardine on a halibut rig. He said he also had something much larger on, but it got off.

Sheriff Larry just came in with a similar sized flattie – he said there’s no problem getting the small ones right now.
