Headed to bodega tomorrow and was thinking about making the drive tonight and sleeping in the van. I know you can't camp at the west side lot, but anyone know if there's restrictions on pulling over roadside on the approach to crash til the morning?

Any info would be appreciated!

Why don't you just go to Doran Beach?

Bring layers of clothing the Fog's been visiting us pretty regularly lately. It'll go from chilly wet to hot in a matter of a couple of hours.

If everything is full, you can camp at Westside in the parking lot. The rangers will make you pay full price for camping in the lot as if you were in the campground. But it works. The beauty is you won't have to wait in the road line. Get ready and wait for people dragging their feet getting ready and GO.

Thanks for the info guys. Wound up sleeping at west side. They obviously don't mind much as there were at least 10 other boats doing the same thing. Launched the boat at 430 but unfortunately this early bird got no worm. Dragged straight baits and fbr for 5 HNS and none in the box. Fished til about 1230 before pulling the plug. Real spotty bite out there. Some guys did well, lots of others got skunked. Fish seem to be scattered from Jenner on down to elephant rock.
