Capitola: It is not malaise – just some world class slacking

Larry and another one
And now on to actual news of the day.

Here’s Larry doing what he does best – showing off his catch. It is a good thing he catches lots of fish her he’d be a lost soul. He caught this 10 pounder off the wharf this morning again with a sardine under a bobber in the surf line.

Shawn is furious with us as we (to her eyes) have been *censoring* ourselves by not posting stuff with Josh’s fish. Today we will not do a good job of refuting this theory very well as we do not have a photo of the three halibut that he caught today . Josh hooked up on his first of the day – a nine pounder – flylining a live sardine off New Brighton. He caught a small striper there as well. This afternoon he caught another two flatties – one 23 inches, one 22 inches – in the same area with the same bait. Likewise we do not have a photo of Kurtis’ fish – he caught a 25 incher and a nine pounder in the same area.

Again – plenty of bait in the marina this morning – large sardines and some pinhead anchovies that appear to be getting larger. It was difficult to keep the anchovies off the bait jigs as the sardines were underneath them, but it’s a good sign as far as what the future holds.

Otherwise – we aren’t aware of any other catches. Myron the Mariner was out and managed to hook up two short lings and a short flatty on the other side of the kelp bed to the east. Ed got to see a striper chase but ultimately reject one of his baits, a bat ray fly up near his boat, and he released a short lingcod. Not many boats out however, so our sample could be better.

Our slacking days are over for now – again our apologies – we will get back on track tomorrow, promise.
