Quick update and than off to bed,

I would like to thank all those who made it to Santa Cruz Harbor to fish with us today,
Weather and swell were FAC and I was living it. We had a total of 20 anglers and although the catching was slow, the fishing was fun with great company.

The results are as follows:
1st Place Lowrance FF = Eugine Tsuji
2nd Place Okuma Baidarka Rod = Ben Petersen
3rd Place Promar Floating Gaff = Kenny Eskew
Honerable Mention = Dave Fox

I would also like to send a special thanks to Allan Bushnell for his gracious hospitality this weekend (hope you are feeling better)

Pic's will be added after some rest,
Eric

Sweet! I took the dog for a walk on harbor beach & watched Al get bent by that halibut. Stoked for the winners & everyone who made it out. Conditions were excellent in the am.

OH boy was this a fun event!  Thanks again Eric for the great time!  You cant beat a chill event like this with a stick! 

My Hali was caught on a 2oz megabait type thing, on my smallest rod (shimano ML stripper rod), with 8lb test!  While drifting live bait, I tried to jig up some tacos.  Felt like I had a snag, but then it started moving and when it came up I was soooo excited I almost snapped the line trying to pull it in the boat.   :smt044

But, mine was not the best of the day by far!!!  There were some really nice hali's caught, like E2G's 35" (i think) winner!!!  Dave had a nice one too, and I think there were 5-6 caught along with some nice lings and assorted RF!

What a fun event!!!  :smt007  Seemed like everyone was catching something, and having a great time! 

PICS!!!

i also had a lot of fun yesterday.  i was onto the water late and decided to hang around the harbor mouth where there were tons of sardines.  i spent most of the day just jigging up bait.

i didnt know the area and decided not to venture into the fog.  i definitely hooked the biggest of the day, while drifting a live sardine i felt...tap..tap...load up then i set the hook hard.  i got a little headshake, then the line started ripping off my reel horizontally, and turning my kayak slowly.  i thought i had a big striper or wsb on,  then SPLASH......turned around and saw a  :smt013 sea lion jump 2x. he stripped off about 100 yards then i cranked down on him and popped him off.  he took 1 of the tines on my treble hook with him.  

i also had a scratched bait later on a jumbo dine.  i ended up with probably 60 or 70 dines and one large mack, enough for the fall striper run.  those bait fish are fun on medium light tackle.  

also, i think al should have won with his 24" hali - add the 130lb lady he woke up in the morning and he definitely caught a larger fish than the rest of us.  :smt044

Major props to those that placed!  Super bummed I wasn't able to attend.  Had been planning on this event for awhile, even talked to Yakuza and made plans to split the cost of live bait (not knowing it was so plentiful) and then the wife decides to remind me of all things I failed to accomplish on her "to-do list" this summer.  :smt010  :smt009  :smt012  :smt011  :smt013   Needless to say, her list took precedent.  Only one item left on that dam thing and then I'm hoping to make the Davenport event, but if not, definitely the 9/20 event at Bass Lake!
