Capitola: When he actually thinks he has a fish on, it is usually some part of the boat

Butters and striper and halibut
Our crack cub wharf reporter branched out big time today as he ventured out onto the ocean with Kurtis to see if maybe he could do better than a limit of sardines today (not realizing that there is no such thing as a limit for sardines – dagfundit!).

In no time with a cry of “hot diggity dandy” he had hooked up the 9 pound striper using a live sardine. He was so amped up on birthday cake sugar that he almost didn’t realize he had a fish (“Oh hamboogers I hooked some kelp”). About 15 minutes after that, in a stunning display of learning ability, he again exclaimed that he had hooked on a bunch of kelp – which in fact turned out to be this 7 pound flatty. Kurtis showed inhuman willpower in tolerating Butter’s silliness.

The worst part is that Butter’s birthday is tomorrow, so he’ll likely be taking a dive into a German chocolate double layer with Krispy Kreme accents and we’ll just have to put him down as humanely as possible.

For now however, a begrudging congratulations to Butters.
