The forecast for tomorrow is excellent. Hopefully the fish will be there. Tempbreak.com shows a pretty uniform mix of cold water out there, so it's a little hard to gauge the good spots, especially after all the wind we've had. Earlier I was told about good salmon sign just inside of Cordell Banks, but that's kind of far for searching. Historically the Bodega Weather Buoy is a good place to start. And don't forget to troll around any black, slimy string of commercial crab pots, as those tend to hold fish (don't troll too close, though, because then they tend to hold your gear). It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to bring along a few crab pots, just to cover your bases. The outer bay still had a few crab a couple weeks ago and the big seas last week may have shifted a few more our way.
