    the surf fishing is good there. I caught seven nice size surf perch the last time I was
    there and a halabut.

      Power plants = warm water = big fish -- enjoy!

      For breakfast or lunch there is The Moss Landing Cafe!!! My sister and I go every Sunday morning!!! Everything is good and fresh!! Some of my favorites are the Blackened Mahi wraps, the breakfast burrito, or the surfers breakfast. I think they do dinner on Fri/Sat nights. There is also the Whole Enchilada it isn't overly fancy or fine dining but the food is good and they have a lot of crazy different martinis.

          We make a point to stop at Sea Harvest each time we visit the area- on the water- the best scallops and chips, oysters. Awesome view- otters, along with kayakers. Right on the water at the Harbor.

          ever been there for dinner? Is it a nice atmosphere? I assume the food will be as good as it is for breakfast. Thanks so much.

            I have not been there for dinner!! I work in a restaurant so I don't get many Fri/Sat nights off!! The atmosphere is comfortable it is definitely casual! It not quite a diner but has that simple diner feel. I don't know that there are really any great atmospheric places in Moss Landing! There is a great Italian restaurant in Castroville only 5-10 min drive called La Scuela's!! It has been there for years and is family run I remember eating there or special occasions as a child. I haven't been in years and thinking about it makes me want to go.
