Tomales Bay fishing
Posted July 22 2010 - 9:08 PM
The only time I've gone fishing near Tomales Bay is off of a boat and for Halibut. Does anyone know if I can surf fish during the day or are there any rocks in hopes for some cods? I think fishing for halibut is out of the question since I don't have a boat.

If you go through the town of Inverness, you will end up at Pt. Reyes and Drakes Bay. Both are OK for perch. On the way to Pt Reyes, you will also pass Drakes Bay Oyster Co. (formally Johnsons Oyster Farm).
Good luck, have fun, be safe.

It depends on what you are targeting.

Been to Johnsons Oyster farm many of times used to buy a 1/3 gunny sack worth that ran about $30.00 plus tax. Their customers are there chucking oysters like they are going out of style. I would do a few with tobasco sauce but the majority of them went home and made olmettes out of them with a side of french bread and linguisa("Portugees sausage")very tasty. If I where you I would go a little further out to Bodego Bay and charter a party boat out to Cordell Banks even though winter is better they always seem to get good sacks of rockfish.

I was hoping to target some halibuts. My dad said I need to be on a boat to get the depth thats needed because I wouldnt be able to cast out that far from the surf
Does anyone know if there are a lot of "rocks" in the area? I'm thinking of poke-poling for the first time. For those that dont know, here is a link http://www.youtube.c...h?v=dTi4gtZy_Jc
