Capitola: Slackers! Deadbeats! Loafers!

That’s us – bringing you the best of yesterday’s News today. We call it the Olds – it makes us feel better when we’ve been bad.

Though in our defense, there’s not much to say about yesterday. It was a beautiful day, so being on the water was very nice. But not a lot of action. Here’s what we mean:

Ed went out yesterday and started off the day with some sardines. He jigged them up just outside the marina. Then he tried some halibut fishing around the edges of the kelp bed. This yielded one slightly short maybe-even-legal ling. Then he went out a bit deeper – by the mile buoy – and hooked up on an 18 inch salmon on a live sardine. That’s it for Ed. The stenographer caught a brown just big enough to spice his rice. We had two rentals out yesterday, and they both got skunked. The only real success story for yesterday was a report we heard of a 27 pound halibut being caught uut of the harbor in one of the usual places.

So really – the only shining rays of hope to take away from all this are 1) there are sardines around outside the marina and 2) shallow salmon!

We will endeavour to be more timely in the future – our apologies for the tardiness.
