Finally some flat ocean today but no takers from the Landing. It sounds as though a few salmon made it onto some of the Bodega boats. The fish were a bit scattered (not surprising after all the wind) bout could be found from 200 to 270 feet out in spots of bait and krill. Wind tomorrow, maybe fishable on Saturday, Sunday looks promising if the weathermen don't change their minds about it. Some decent crab off the dock in the last two days, not a bunch but enough to make it interesting. There's bait in the back bay, mostly small herring. By small I mean smaller than red label herring, 2"-3". That's smaller than most of us like, but if that's what the fish are eating I can learn to like it. The bait is scattered about but seems to hang around Marshall. Maybe halibut soon?
