    So I heard 2 locals caught stripers from the beach with sand crabs fishing for perch yesterday? Is this possible or were they more likely wsb? I'm in northern sb county. And how come no one else has been posting lately?

    is it possible? yes. even probable
    I have never personally seen a resemblance between a striped bass and a wsb. but Ive been gone from socal for a couple of years. Taking into account the fukushima radiation invasion, climate change and massive oil spills in the area....................

    I have heard of a few so cal striper making their way down there! Most likely following the bait! We get em in the surf up here all the time. The delta is infested with them!

    Sand crabs are one of the ocean stripers favorite things to eat especially when they are schoolie size 16" to 20" we catch plenty around the Monterey bay on them. There has been more young fish this year all up and down the coast.

    Ive caught them in the surf in the double digits in a few places. It is real. And they fight as hard if not harder than the freshies at Castaic used to.
