You can fish off the jetty (Rocks) at the entrance to Noyo Harbor.
You can buy frozen bait at the Birite drug store in Fort Bragg, its on Hwy 1.

Good luck!

I second the Noyo Harbor Jetty entrance. I fished cooked shrimp (that I got at an Asian market in Santa Rosa) on a three way rig for 29 big striped perch, one huge 16" rubberlip perch, and a couple of big greenling in a little over three hours. Another fella fishing just down from me was catching lings with frozen 'chovies that he was fishing like a swimbait. Just a slow, steady retrieve above the bottom. Some decent seafood in the restaurants right there also!
