Tomales Bay fishing

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

Going w/some buddies to shuck some oysters, drink some beers, and rest and relax!

 

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.

 

Thanks, fellas!

Dillon Beach is on the north side of the mouth of Tomales Bay. You can perch there and there are some transition areas into rocks.

 

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.

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.

View PostIt depends on what you are targeting.

 

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.com/watch?v=dTi4gtZy_Jc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTi4gtZy_Jc

Better to target perch but halibut also love mud flats.
