    I always start about this time of year if I fishing Alameda, some of the local guys have started working them pretty hard....watermelons all the way up to Ponies n Stripers, I like chucking rubber baits about this time in the estuary Hogy's or a Slug-Go in ghost color

    There are already stripers that have come into the bay, but they have not come in numbers yet. I'd wait about a month before starting fishing for them in your area as your chances will go way up, but it would still be considered early in the season even if you waited a month. My favorite time is May and June for halibut and striped bass in the SF Bay - they are the hottest months IMHO. July and August is a good time to target surf stripers. Then in September and October there's a fall run in the SF Bay before they return to the delta. If you're gonna try fishing for stripers this early, I would try San Pablo Bay, the Delta, or Napa/Sonoma county rivers instead of the SF Bay. Good luck! I'm no expert though, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

    the normal bay estuary fishery begins as the bass run back down river after spawning , usually starting around beginning of june thru fall when they head back up to the delta.But the bait in the bay is the iffy part.

    Fish Season?

    Can anyone tell me what the seasons are for stripers? I remember it being something like feb-march and fall. Can someone confirm that?

    FYI I'll be fishing around Alameda so MLK Shoreline to the rockpoint or whatever it's called.
