How often? For me it really depends on the time of the year. I've never fished your CA waters period...much less for stripers. So I don't know how they are out there. I know that if I plan a weekend of Striper fishing (during the right time of year of course) I can almost be assured of some fish. I'm not saying I catch them everytime I go out fishing, but if I am going to fish hard for a whole weekend I'm bound to at least catch a couple. Some may be short, some may be keepers, but inevitably if I work at it, I'll catch at least one. The best is when they hit the beach hard at the end of Dec in NC, You can see people up and down the beach and its almost instant that at least half of them have a fish on. This may go on for 5 min or a couple hours.......

Pencil. Dont give up. It takes perserverence and patience. Even veteran anglers get protracted dry spells.
I see you live in San Jose. I don't know of California only that what I've read. Check out
Randy Pringles web site. He is holding several seminars in your area on September 29th and October 6th, 12th (Fall Bass and Stripers) and November 16th at the Fisherman's Warehouse - San Jose - Also the Rio Vista festival is coming. Its North East of you but its huge.
Rio Vista Bass Festival
You might also want to check out
The California striped Bass association.
The message board is a tough one, but they may be helpful.
There is a chapter in your area.

Everytime I go out. I nail 'em! Sometimes two, sometimes 12. You're on the wrong coast. :)

California's a different game but here in Jersey your odds are good evertime you go out to catch a few smaller fish - it's the big ones, 20# and over that can be few and far between (talking off the ground - boat fish don't count)

By the way, your stripers came from my home river, the Navesink.
