Capitola: Like Forrest Gump! Sardine stew, sardine sandwiches, sardine cake…..

* WPG2 CANNOT LOCATE GALLERY2 ITEM ID 90387 * We saw one small striper landed on the wharf down in the surf line. He was using a live sardine under a bobber. It was a small fish – barely legal – and the guy who caught it took off before we could snap a picture. Other than that, sardines.

If you zoom in on this one, you’ll see that there are lots of folks reeling in sardines at the very moment this picture was snapped. Coincidence?? Nooo – there are still a lot of sardines around the wharf. They are hiding from the seiners. Relative to the seiners, the sea lions and pelicans and cormorants and dolphins and people fishing on boats and on the wharf and all the other critters up and down the water column are no match at all.
