Re: Sf bay
I'm mentioned in that other thread, but fishing SF Bay is not something that I do. If I look up some resources, I may be able to help you out. I usually defer to the guys at Leland since it is their backyard.
However, you may want to fish the beaches at Pacifica now. Use your 10 weight with a 400 to 450 grain shooting head to cut through the pounding surf. Chartreuse and white Clouser Minnows may hook you up with a large Striped Bass.
Make sure that you have a stripping basket.
Good luck with your search.
