About half the boats that went salmon fishing from here caught with numbers ranging from 0-2. Lots of stories of lost fish. The water with the salmon in it has been moving north and is probably nearing due west of the mouth of the Russian River in 250 to 300 feet of water. The birds will tell you exactly where. The crabbing has been slow with a lot of females showing up in the pots now. Randy from Reno had 5 Dungeness on the pier on Saturday. The leopard sharks are schooling in the cove where the Park Service moors their boats, across from Marshall. The surfperch are biting off of the beach and in the bay. Pileworms or ghost shrimp are the preferred perch baits.
