I'm in Bodega Bay CA, I plan to start diving here is the cold rough waters but staying inshore to start. I've fished this area long enough to know we have a lot of very large Whites here. I'm sure of it because I"ve have then take out the down rigger balls (15 lb ball of lead quick release, stainless wire and hardware)with such force the get stuck in the rigging. I've hooked the several times on salmon gear. Point Tomales seems to be the heaviest populated area.
