Santa Cruz: Looks like we have a new highliner today!

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 86492 * So Dan took his uncle Dave out for some ocean fishing today, and it looks like Uncle Dave brought the hod rod. What you see here are halibut jr at about 6 pounds, and halibut the great at 23 pounds. Nice!! He caught these fishing live sardines on a halibut rig on the main reef. Lately we’ve been seeing most of the halibut being caught up more around the Santa Cruz area, and it’s probably a good first place to look. But it’s not yet too late in the year for halibut to show up just about anywhere so don’t rule out other areas just quite yet.
