Late summer and fall is best for Hog Stripers - from Pt. Montara down thru to San Gregorio. Miles of sandy beach to cast plugs.

;) If you're hitting the surf for stripers, bring the binoculars, and search for the birds, because that's where the fish will be. If you can, check the beach regs, and use a small 4 wheel drive to follow the beach looking for birds. You might try this trick on Monterey Bay in late July through August. The stretch from China Beach to Moss Landing is just aching to be fished, when the bait is in. I've taken some nice stripers from this area, particularly when the anchovies are being chased on to the beach.
