Santa Cruz’s Sand Crab Classic is California’s largest perch fishing derby! Held annually in March, this event welcomes anglers for a day of friendly competition and coastal fun. Participants cast their lines from shore for the mighty surf perch. Winners are crowned in various categories, with trophies and prizes. Also, the Sand Crab Classic is an annual benefit for the Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project. Even if fishing isn’t your thing, there’s a BBQ lunch available, with raffles and entertainment for the whole family. So grab your rod and reel and head to the Santa Cruz Sand Crab Classic!
