I used to live in san francisco and there was a small fleet of headboats that docked at fishermans warf, and another few boats at the berkley marina. Not sure what they are sailing for in march but i used to catch alot of lingcod and rockfish mostly around the farallon islands. The striper fishing there in the bay is basically a dissapointment, a huge fish is ten pounds. I guess when the salmon are around they are the most fun to catch but i believe it is a very short season. If your in san francisco you NEED to check out HI'S tackle box, Which is a seriously awsome place to check out all the different types of west coast tackle, very friendly staff.
Thanks for the info. Last fall I went out of Berkley marina and caught all kinds for crazy rockfish (orange), ling cod and other stuff. The websites out there aren't very good so I can't get a feel for what might be running. I'll likely just call the tackle shop that was recommended.
Last fall I also had to book ahead of time through a group at the dock. I booked for Halibut and ended up on a Ling Cod trip. I think they just put you where they feel like it. This time I'm not booking anything. I'm showing up at the dock and going right to a boat.
