Fishing Santa Cruz

We kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with a cold, overcast fishing trip to Santa Cruz.  Sea conditions were mild, and the 2.5nm row out to the reef was warming.

After about 45 seconds of fishing with the new Point Wilson Dart, we hooked up this undersized little rockfish.

Annika soon hooked herself this little Ling, which we likewise threw back.

Some sealions entertained us in a kelp bed on our way back.  We also saw jellies, seals, dolphin, and a sea otter.


Still chilly as we arrive in harbor.

The new rec/racing cat Lightspeed 32 was rigging in the parking lot.  I had read about it in Latitude 38, it looked like a fast and very high quality boat.
