Thanks to the tips and warnings regarding the area. One more week and we'll be on our way. Spending today prepping my boat and loading it with anything that we might be needing for our trip. Going through our freezers looking for old packages of bait from past trips and making chum out of them for attracting bait fish. We know it's fishing and we're hoping for some catching. We putting our skills and experiences together with all of your tips and suggestions on making this trip memorable for us. FYI, this trip is in celebration of my wife's 50th birthday and it was her idea to go on this outing to Bodega. So again, thanks to everyone for your help. I will be posting our successes (and failures).
