Was fishing for stripers last weekend off sand beach Rio Vista. The swells got so big my wife got seasick, plus we werent catching any fish, so we were just about to leave. Just them my pole starts twitchin. I set the hook and reeled in and a pretty good fight was on. I was quite surprised when I got it in and it was a 7lb cat not a striper. Kind of strange to get a cat in the middle of the day. We were using sardines in 29ft of water. Forgot camera no pics.

Its not that uncommon to catch cats in the middle of the day, most of the catfish I ever caught have been caught during the day you just have to fish deeper.
