The Perch are biting in Morro Bay off the T-piers! Just drop a line in with Nightcrawlers or Lugworms (Pileworms) and catch some! Also, today is the Salmon Season Opener. I hear the chatter a few of the private boats on the VHF outside Morro Bay. There have been some big Salmon caught out here today up to 20lbs! A few limits… and a few skunks… but they ARE out there!
