    Striper bass becoming less and less

    Several years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I witnessed massive schools of stripers in Rodeo and Pinole. Then I used to catch 30 fish in a day for several days in a row. I also witnessed 2 massive stripers working as a team to ambush and prey on smaller stripers. #cannibalism

    Santa Cruz Wharf — 23 years

    after I moved to the Bay Area from Guam my regular fishing was infrequent as I went off to college and spent time being a rock and roll dreamer and pursuing girls. But as I settled down in Mountain View I started fishing again and the one place I went to somewhat infrequently was Santa Cruz...

    What are the best artificial lures for species like bay bass, halibut and shortfin corvina?

    the tackle shops in the Southern California stock all that good stuff. Up here they only have fishing gear for deep sea fishing and freshwater fishing. Nothing for brackish, bay, and surf fishing.

    What are the best artificial lures for species like bay bass, halibut and shortfin corvina?

    I used to also fly fish there. nymph-ing shrimp-like flies. pretty effective avoiding all the snags and kelp. and natural presentation helps with wary fish.
