Sunday Morning, beach south of Santa Cruz, 8:00am, calm water, overcast. While walking up to the beach, saw guy catch keeper striped bass on topwater. Get to the surf, see like 2 or 3 anchovies jumping out of the water. Cast black sp minnow into surf, reeling back, paused, let minnow float to surface, saw a large striper follow it, mouthed?it or bumped it, then turn back to the depths. Tried again several times with different lures, no luck rest of day. Multiple sea lions as well . Drove back along the 1 looking at the ocean and thinking about rockfishing.
