Capitola: What the heck is a shad??

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 83843 * The person who caught this was using sabiki from the wharf. It’s a shad – very unusual for this area. The wharf was host to a whole bunch of fun-to-catch stuff today – lots of perch, sardines, and jacksmelt, though no mackerel.

On the ocean, Sheriff Larry caught 9 stripers, released 5 (kept 4) fishing New Brighton with live sardines. He gave them all away before we got to the picture. We are tempted to say something like “suuuurrrre Larry” but we know how sensitive he is about which fish he gets photographed with (they must be very large).

Off new brighton today another private boat caught a legal halibut in 13 feet of water with live sardines.

Conditions are definitely looking spookier, but we can’t say where.

Finally, bait is all over the place – pretty much all the varieties we’re seeing at the wharf and then some including some pinhead anchovies. Lots of bird action, sea lions, and dolphins. Pretty much the seas are alive with life right now.
