Capitola: They fought like little tuna

The Stenographers Sardines
Halibut fishing could have been better today. Much better. The stenographer was in good company today as both Kurtis and Darn Glenn also flew the skunk flag halibut wise. The stenographer headed for the barn first, and thought he might have a chance at highliner today with the four sardines you see in the photo here. However – gee surprise surprise Darn Glenn caught and released a good number of large ling cod in the reefs near the mile buoy during his halibut quest.

The good news to take away from all this is:

1) There are some nice sardines around – these were caught just about a mile from the Capitola marina.

2) There are some nice lings in the wings waiting for May 1st.

We’re going to try again tomorrow – fingers crossed as always.

    Good to see perfect size baits.
    Ding a ling candy bars will get noticed with the action getting a little better each day,todays set back is no biggie you got put your time in and be ready when you get bit.

    Already heard of a lot of missed flattie bites setting the hook to quick out of quick draw mcgraw syndrome,(Farming them)
    due to lack of recent experience.
