started out with my nephew by going to Tomales Bay at 5am and the only thing we caught was some motor trouble >:(.... blew it up quite nice after working on it all day Saturday and a hundred bucks later :'(!!!!! so we went out to several of ponds in Windsor, a little ways off old redwood highway. the fish where biting...everything else but my bait, couldn't get them to hit once...just not our day at all....since my boat is down I'm going to have to go back to mostly shore fishing again... so does anyone know where i can go hit some shark,rays, halibut,cod or rockfish around tomales, bodega area??? any help would be nice :-?

Fish the bar. Outside is good for perch in the surf. Inside and on the bar ,sharks and rays maybe a butt.
Catch some shiners on the dock. Buy squid and gulp and your good to go. 8-)

I'm not sure I'm gonna tear it down this week and see. but i took off the side cover and the cylinders and pistons are pretty scared up. >:( hopefully i can just run a hone through it, but where can i find parts for it...that are decently reasonable :-?

The sand bar at Dillon that separates the bay from open water.

Hey Fish Crippler,

If you're willing to drive up to Mendocino, I will take you to some of my honey-holes off of the rocks.

Just let me know,
