FINALLY SOME FIRST HAND INFORMATION!!!!!!!!!
Went out on 07-01-2007 around 1030 AM and fished the area at the mouth of the Salinas River. There were fisherman lined up so I thought, "Today is my day!" Fished for four hours with a hairraiser. Nothing for me....Yes, that's right...nothing for me...not even a hit.
Guys were cathing small fish 14-16 inch range. Talk to a Fish and Game Warden who is also an avid fisherman. He said Stripers are being caught off of Manresa Beach. He also said that White Bass are being caught off of the Capitola Pier and by boaters fishing the local water there.
The fish that were caught were by bait fisherman. I saw guys throwing everything from hairraisers, pencil poppers, kastmasters, and swimbaits.
The water was clean and the wave action was perfect for catching Stripers. The full moon is not helping. If the moon is full this coming weekend, I'm going to try a night outing. That's alway fun fishing under the moonlight.
I keep you posted as I get realiable info. Still spotty action. Water is dirty with seaweed at Marina Beach beach but seems to clean up if you go north.
