Howdy sniffers!
Does anyone catch stripers while drifting for flatties in monterey bay as they do in sf bay?

Short answer, yes. Long answer, not in near the same numbers.

mmmmmm :-/

while drifting for halibut your out 30-60ft
sometimes near the edges of the kelp beds
and I have yet to hear a striper caught there....
a white sea bass, but not stripers....

most all the stripers caught in the bay are at the beaches
from the cement boat to sand city.....
and they are in close to shore.....
since theres a 200yd limit and more on some beaches
trolling for them is not popular......
so bottom line for me, I would have to say no
the percent is against you....
