Someone dropped a striper bomb on the bay this week. We received multiple good reports from Marin and a few from north Alameda Co. Lots of schoolies around and a few bigger dudes. Crissy Field, literally in SF, is cranking out stripers and perch. This is seriously cool, urban fishing. Not many places in the world you can do it like this, and nowhere else can you fish next to the Golden Gate Bridge. We even saw a photo of a rockfish caught in Oakland this week.
The coast is pumping out both stripers and perch too. From Tomales Bay all the way down to Monterey the fish are on the hunt for the summer. We’ve heard of huge schools of pinhead anchovies roaming the coast. And the stripers are beating them up. The bait are small, about 2 inches, so just grab a fistful of #2 clousers and put on your walking shoes and hit the sandy shores.
