Capitola: Who would want to live anywhere else?

John and first striper of year
John here gets the final post for today. He caught this striper using a live sardine under a bobber down by the surf line around three this afternoon.

The swell is down today, and as we suspected the fishing is beginning to improve. The tally as far as we know it is two stripers landed, one farmed, and one waiting to be photographed. We are pretty tired though – it might not happen. Ed needs that second ^H^H^H^H^H^H third wind and to this stenographer’s eyes that’s not gonna happen.

Just to be explicit about it: the weather continues to be magnificent. Tomorrow starts another work week, but if you feel the need for a day to yourself, cash in some boat bucks and come fishing. You’ll at least get a nice tan and some vitamin D.

    A 28lb flattie took a dead sardine, as posted on Bay side marine it almost broke the proverbial first 30lb halibut bench mark halibut of the year

    Holy christ the cabezon being caught should be in one one of those Saturday matinee Japanese Monster movies. Godzilla,Rodan, Mothra, and now codzilla size cabezon.

    Some were actually thrown back mistaken as just under size ling cod ouch! This are one of the best eating fishes in the ocean and tough bull dog fighter when they get big.

    Super cool to have these super size cabezons that you have to fillet the fillets in half again.
