The beaches North of Bodega can produce very good fishing for Red Tail perch along with a very rare occasional striper.  Rocky areas can produce quite a variety of rockfish including Cabazon & Ling Cod, Gopher cod, Greenlings, Black rockfish & Olive rockfish  along with an assortment of others.... Poke poling on big minus tides you might even get some Blenny's  (a type of fish that looks like an eel) & also some rock fish.  BEFORE YOU GO ................. be CERTAIN that conditions are in your favor.... Calm seas/small surf, minimal wind , decent water clarity,  good tides.  Many of the surfing websites that predict surfing conditions can be very helpful in determining whether or not to head north.... I hope this helps...  Mike

Sorry Moocks,  It looks like Decap is keeping all that hot secret info unrevealed......  p.s.  I've never caught a striper around Still Water Cove..... but did get one around 14 inches off that secret beach you got stuck on...
