    Hi Guys just moved to Coronado . Used to be a big Jetty hopper on the east coast for striped bass. I know their are stripers in No Cal.

    It would seem like they would be in So Cal too. Has anyone seen any caught in the surf down here?

    Last one I saw caught in so cal was a post on here from south bay area but was probably last fall.

    hiya vegasandre, last year I saw a guy catch a very nice striper! it was on the south jetty, in the inner surfline...he was using a little trout pole, and fell off the riprap into the wild surf, refusing to let his prize catch escape...I was able to reach down and offer a helping hand heh!

    It seems stripers in the surf are more of an incidental catch than on purpose. Although there was a guy just a couple months back caught some in Ensanda bay. I heard stories of CFG planting them streams and run off channels in SD and LA counties back in the day. Like I said, catching them down here in salt water is more by accident than design. If you really want a striper I'd head for Diamond Valley Lake.
