Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/18/2018

All our boats were out fishing today on a great ocean, calm seas and very little wind. A good time was had by all. The bottom fishing was good with limits of Rockfish and many very nice Ling cod hitting the fillet tables. Crabbing remains slow for Depoe Bay, we hear areas to the north and south are doing better, they just haven't arrived here yet.

The Long Leader trip produced a great catch of Canaries and Yellow Tail, a limit for the fishermen, captain and crew.

Coho fishing is shaping up well, becoming more consistent. We had more than one fish per rod retained and many releases of OFTM's (One Fin Too Many )fish. Good action, good keeping, good fishing!

Tuna intel puts them out of range offshore, at least for the short term. We are watching all the indicators we have and will let you know when we know.

No report from our inshore Halibut boat today.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. According to ODFW modeling this should keep us fishing through the year instead of facing another early closure like last year. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. July first we are also allowed to retain one Cabezon per person, that is included in the daily bag limit of four Rockfish. Limits remain ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/17/2018

The Coho fishing hit it's stride today, just one fish short of a boat limit and 24 fish that were released.

The Rockfish bite was good today, limits for most everyone. Not all limited on Lings but a good number were taken.

The Hot Pursuit smoked em on the Long Leader fishery today. Just 2 fish short of a limit for all, of a great grade of Canaries and Yellow Tail.

Crabbing continues to be pretty close to terrible. Our intel says good numbers of crab are being taken both North and South of us. They just haven't shown up here yet, but they will and when they do, look out.

Tuna looks bleak for a few days, the weather event of late last week pushed them back off shore, we will keep you posted.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/16/2018

This group got some nice inshore fatties for their efforts. Not limits but enough to get the juices flowing. The boats on the bottom fish grounds today did very well, limits of Rockfish but not so many Lings. The seas were choppy this morning but mellowed out as the day went on.

We had one boat Long Leader fishing today, they did very well, most people limited on a great grade of Canaries and Yellow Tail Rockfish.

Salmon fishing was slow today, Slowho Coho. The action was decent but fin clipped fish were hard to come by. Not great by any means but for the folks that are really wanting salmon we have to keep trying.

The recent weather event that kept us off the water Thursday and Friday has pushed the Tuna back offshore and out of range for the next few days, there is no reason to panic yet, there is a lot of season to come. We are watching all the satellite imaging and checking all our other resources.

We were blown off the water today and it looks grim for tomorrow. High winds and seas, we can blame it on the hot weather in the valley... Bad news for the tuna for a little while, word has it they have been pushed offshore. We did just get word from ODFW that the All-Depth Halibut is done until August. On the upside this bit of weather will start the up-welling we need for good Salmon fishing. Aren't I just a little ray of sunshine?

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/10/2018

There was a really nice Halibut taken nearshore, but just one. They were able to finish off the trip with some excellent Rockfish too.

Rockfish were back on the bite in the nearshore fishery, Ling Cod were slow again, a few were taken but not limits by any means. The Long Leader fishery produced limit catches yet again. Big Canaries and Yellow Tail.

We had very good salmon action today. One boat kept over one fish per rod while another did about one per rod but there were many non-hatchery fish brought to the boats and released. There were some great Chinook in the mix too.

The boat we had out on the tuna grounds was not able to produce. The conditions looked good, good temp, good water color, birds, bait, sharks and Hump Back Whales, but no Tuna. They just could not get them to rise. We will keep watching the indicators for the next opportunity.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st.

Fishing this morning was good, no limits of salmon were taken but there was good action. Some very nice Chinook and a few Coho came on board. There were many releases of non-hatchery Coho or as we call them, OFTMs (One Fin Too Many). The Rockfish went on a serious bite, everyone limited on Rockfish, but the Lings did not cooperate.

The Long Leader boats had to work at it but came home with limits of those big offshore Rockfish.

We have had credible reports of Tuna in range of Depoe Bay. We are planning a trip for this coming Tuesday. Call us to make your reservation. Soon.

We cancelled the Friday Halibut trips due to the offshore forecast, it seems we made the correct call on that. We will see how it goes this Saturday.

The Ling Cod were not on the bite today, Rockfish on the other had were ravenous. One of our boats had a limit of Rockfish by 9:00 and the other boats were done shortly after that. We put in a great deal of effort on Lings but they just didn't cooperate. Crabbing is still SLOW, not worthwhile.

The Salmon bite was slow today but there were some taken.

Last weeks All-Depth Halibut fishing was very productive. Before the last opener the remaining quota was at about 52%. We haven't heard yet if there will be enough left for the back-up days in July (July 5,6,7). As soon as we hear we will let you know. Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing has been a little tough for a few days, not everyone has limited but those who put in the effort have been taking home good baskets of fish. Crabbing remains dismal, when it changes we will let you know.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. It remains ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

This Saturday is the opening of the Coho fishery. The limit is two hatchery Coho per angler or two Chinook. Legal length is 16" and 24" respectively. You can mix or match Coho and Chinook for a total of two Salmon.

The marine forecast through Tuesday looks favorable so lets go fishing.

Dockside not only has online reservation services for your convenience but we now have a self-check-in kiosk for those of you with online prepaid reservations. This is designed to minimize your time waiting to check in. If you need a fishing license too we suggest you visit ODFW's website and purchase one before arriving, further expediting your check in.

40+ Inch Ling Cod, A Fine Specimen (Today's Catch)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/23/2018

Rockfish and Ling Cod bit quite well on the inshore fishery. The Long Leader boats had to battle a hard running current but did very well in spite of it. Not everyone limited but the day was considered a winner.

The Halibut boats were fighting strong current and a lot of wind, depending on which corner of the ocean they went to, some boats limited while others didn't.

The marine forecast looks good for several days to come, let's go fishing.

Dockside not only has online reservation services for your convenience but we now have a self-check-in kiosk for those of you with online prepaid reservations.

Smoking Hot Long Leader Fishing


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/18/2018

The Long Leader fishery didn't disappoint today. Limit catches for everyone including the crew. When they went on the bite it was madness, mayhem, chaos and carnage. The majority of the catch were the coveted Yellow Tail Rockfish with a generous number of Canaries thrown in for good measure. The boats fishing the nearshore waters today struggled a good bit but kept working and produced decent but not limit catches. Crabbing continues to be excruciatingly slow.

We do have space available for the All-Depth Halibut openers scheduled for the 21st, 22nd and 23rd (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). Give the office a call to get on board.

We have also had some success with Chinook but it is still very slow. Rockfish have been on the bite well though Ling Cod have slowed down (water temp related?). The Long Leader trips have produced banner catches consistently, our skippers have it pretty well dialed in.

Dockside had all our boats out yesterday on a great ocean, the Rockfish bite was good with most everyone limiting, Ling Cod were much slower with only a few taken on each boat. The boat we had out on a Long leader trip did great (see the photo) with limits for all. Crabbing remains excruciatingly slow, which makes us crabby. The marine forecast for the week looks promising.

Today is Memorial Day and Dockside Charters is not running any fishing or whale watching trips today. We are participating in the Fleet of Flowers Ceremony both shoreside and the Procession to Sea of the Fleet.

The Ling Cod bite was not hot today by any means but the fish taken were quality fish. Rockfish bit well with good numbers of fish being taken throughout the fleet. We do have some spots available for afternoon trips Saturday.

We did not run our scheduled Halibut trips or the Long Leader due to Gale force winds we had offshore, it was plenty windy inshore but we were able get 5 hour trips done. We do have 4 spots available for Halibut tomorrow (Saturday) be here at 05:30 to check in.

Cabbing continues to be painfully slow, we had some test pots out today, baited with one of the best crab baits there is (Halibut heads) and they just did not produce. The pots have been plugged with crab but so few keepers (lots of girls and under sized) that is not worthwhile. While it is disappointing we are not OK with taking your money with so little chance of a reward. We will continue to monitor the catch and will start in again when it improves enough to be worthwhile. We do want your crab dollars but we want you to have a reasonable opportunity for a decent catch.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/15/2018

We had boats out on a great ocean today fishing on both 5 and 6 hour trips. The bite on the 5 hour trips was tough due to a hard running current. That isn't to say that it was a bad day of fishing, the seas were calm and there was very little wind and there were decent numbers of fish caught although not everyone limited.

The six hour boat was doing the Long Leader fishery. The bite was slow to start but they finished strong with limits for everyone. The caught very few of the highly prized Yellow Tail but loaded up on giant sized Canaries. We have space available, give us a call at 541-765-2545 or use our online reservation service.

There is still limited space available for Halibut opportunities but the opening is rapidly approaching, call 541-765-2545 soon to make sure you don't miss out, or use our online reservation service.

Just to let those that don't yet know, Dockside has added another boat to the fleet, it is another 43' Delta Marine. Check out the boat (Outer Limits) and the Skipper's bio (Chris Schaffner) on Docksides fleet page. It will be available for the May 10th Halibut opener so give us a call to get on board. The Outer Limits will increase Dockside Charters capability to provide the high level of service to our clients they have come to expect.

The first Halibut all-depth opener was something of a bust for us, Thursday the fishing was difficult with only about 50 percent getting fish, Friday and Saturday the swells and wind keeps us inshore. We will have another opportunity the 24th,25th and 26th.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/03/2018

Dockside has several boats out today on a very nice ocean. Reports from the boats indicate the Rockfish and Ling Cod are biting well. We are expecting great catches by the end of the day. Crabbing has been pretty darn slow, we will see if it improves today.

There is still limited space available for Halibut opportunities but the opening is rapidly approaching, call 541-765-2545 soon to make sure you don't miss out, or use our online reservation service.

Just to let those that don't yet know, Dockside has added another boat to the fleet, it is another 43' Delta Marine. Check out the boat (Outer Limits) and the Skipper's bio (Chris Schaffner) on Docksides fleet page. It will be available for the May 10th Halibut opener so give us a call to get on board. The Outer Limits will increase Dockside Charters capability to provide the high level of service to our clients they have come to expect.

His First Time At Sea, What A Way To Start

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

04/29/2018

Yesterday was a real typical day of fishing. Some of the boats had to work harder for the fish than others but at the end of the day the Rockfish bite was quite good. Ling Cod catches were moderately good, limits were not taken for everyone.

The boats we have out today are doing well, a decent bite on Ling and Rockfish, but it still early, lots of fishing time left. For yet another day we did not crab due to low numbers. It will improve soon and we will be right back in them.

Dockside Doesn't Just Target Black Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

04/28/2018

Yesterday our fishermen struggled, working on a bouncy ocean with a hard running current. At the end of the day they did all right, not limits but a decent catch in the boat. Today, Saturday the fishing ranged from one end of the scale to another. Rockfish bit better for some boats than others and the same for Ling Cod. So it is safe to say it wasn't a smoking hot bite but overall everyone is coming home with a respectable catch. Crabbing remains painfully slow. We will keep you updated when our "test" pots start to produce. Space available for tomorrow.

We were not able to get out Saturday due to high winds and high seas. Sunday we got out for fishing but did not crab, the quality of crab remains very good but the quantity is way down. We will start crabbing again when the numbers improve, they will, it will just take some time. As for the fishing it remains quite good in the nearshore fishery with good catches of Rockfish and Ling Cod. Offshore the Long Leader fishery is producing limits for nearly everyone. We have openings for both this week. Give us a call to make your reservation 541-765-2545

Tuna / Fishing Report:

The seas have calmed down yesterday and today and we have been out fishing. Both days the bite started out slow but fired off later in the trip so everyone has been coming home with limits or near limits. The Long Leader fishery continues to produce loads of big mid-water rockfish and is proving to be quite popular.

The marine forecast for Friday is still very nice so lets go fishing. At this time there is a significant swell forecast for Saturday, diminishing on Sunday but the forecast at this time of year is changeable so we will be watching it.

SALMON SEASON ANNOUNCED BY PFMC


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

04/11/2018

For those of you that are wondering about a salmon season this year the following is an excerpt from the PFMC's (Pacific Fisheries Management Council) decision from the recently concluded meeting determining quotas and seasonal dates for the different regions.

Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast (Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt.) opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption. Coho seasons will have quotas of 35,000 adipose fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 30 through September 3, and an additional 3,500 coho quota in the September non-selective coho season that will be open each Friday and Saturday beginning on September 7 and continue through the earlier of September 29 or quota. In October, the recreational season will be restricted to salmon fishing only inside of the 40 fathom management line.

Bottom fishing continues to be strong, especially the new Long Leader fishery. Now if we could just get some cooperation from the weather. Once again we are plagued by a forecast of high seas with more than ample wind.

We now have our on-line reservation service up and running for your convenience. Access it through the Quick Link to the left.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

This was the last day for the offshore Ling Cod fishing until next October. Unfortunately the conditions out there kept us inshore (wind). Fortunately the Long Leader fishery offshore has been federally authorized starting April 1, 2018. Long Leader limits are for 10 of the big offshore Rockfish.

Also fortunate that the bite continues inshore as you can see in the picture of Ron with his delicious green Ling Cod.

We have lots of space available for tomorrow so give us a call rather Fish rather than hunting Easter Eggs. Weather conditions should be very favorable, light winds and virtually no swell. Lets go fishing.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

03/24/2018

Yes that is a Spotted Ratfish that Daniel is holding. They are not seen very often but they are unusual in so many ways. This cartilaginous fish is a chimaera found in the NE Pacific and gets it's characteristic name from a pointed rat-like tail.

Fishing has been very good, particularly in the nearshore fisheries for Ling Cod, Rockfish have been coming in limits too. Friday and Saturday the conditions kept us off the water but the forecast for the Sunday on look promising. We are full on Sunday but do have space available for Monday on.

The long leader fishery continues to produce a bonanza of Rockfish when the conditions allow us to get out there. It is proving to be a popular fishery.

We do have our ONLINE BOOKING activated again so if your are looking for that convenience give it a try. Go to the home page and find it in the "Quick Links" on the left. It is just part of Docksides effort to provide more and better services for our valued clients.

Sadly the swells, though impressive to see, took a human toll, one person lost their life, others were injured and there was significant property damage. We urge anyone visiting the coast to enjoy the spectacle of the ocean's fury from a safe distance. Respect her always.

In the picture you can see the bell buoy which typically is 1/2 mile from the harbor mouth. There is 13 feet of buoy that projects above the water so you can see from the picture, taken this morning, that it isn't flat calm yet. The force of the swells yesterday moved the buoy about 200 yards inshore and to the south. It is now nearly over the top of Flat Rock.

Needless to say we haven't been fishing for a day or two, but last time we were out it was good. Saturday was very good but Sunday required much more effort, a heavy current made fishing more difficult.
We will be getting trips out as soon as the ocean allows. Give us a call at 541-765-2545

Season Info:

Fishing inside 40 fathoms depth allowed only for flatfish, i.e. Sanddabs, Sole and Halibut (Halibut until October 30). No Rockfish or Ling Cod until January 1, 2018.

Just a quick update: If you have heard or not, there was a fire onboard a boat in Depoe Bay harbor tonight. It was NOT one of Dockside's fleet. It was quickly knocked down by the timely response of the Depoe Bay Fire Department. Cause of the fire and the extent of damage is unknown at this time. The vessel is still afloat. Thank you to DBFD responders and the Depoe Bay Coast Guard Station for standing by to assist.

At this time of the year if you hesitate too long you might well miss an opportunity to go fishing. Give us a call at 541-765-2545 to make your reservation.

We have had a great run at the Long Leader fishery since it opened October first. Ten fish limits of big offshore Canaries, Yellow Tail and Widow Rockfish for almost everyone that has engaged in this fishery. It is a challenging fishery, working with the long leader and at the depths we are fishing at but the rewards (big fish, big limits) are worthwhile.

Camo Raingear Let Them Sneak Up On These Dandies


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

10/16/2017

We have been getting out on these Long Leader trips and have been doing very well. Limits (ten per person) of big fish have been coming onboard with startling regularity. Crabbing is now closed for the season.

The intent of the Long Leader Fishery is to provide fishing opportunity without impacting the endangered Yellow Eye Rockfish (a bottom dwelling species). The Long Leader Gear has been extensively tested over a two year period with excellent results. ODFW stepped up to provide this opportunity after the closure of the inshore fishery for Rockfish and Ling (inside 40 fathoms) after some rather intense negotiations involving the agency, this office and the Oregon Coast Charter Association. Opening the fishery and establishing a ten Rockfish limit (rather than seven) was accomplished quite literally in days before October 1st. This is a win for all the parties involved as this will keep us on the water through the end of the year. January 1, 2018 the quotas reset and we are back to business as usual.

Using the long leader gear is not without it's problems however. There are frequent tangles ranging from mild to epic. Because of the tangle factor we are taking fewer people at a time and using other means to mitigate the tangles too. Patience is required at times but it will be rewarded with excellent catches.

Good News On The Deep Water Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/29/2017

ODFW just informed us that the Long Leader Fishery for Rockfish will have a ten (10) Rockfish bag limit from October 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. That is great news from ODFW, raising the bag limit from seven to ten to compensate for not being able to retain Ling Cod (due to Yellow Eye impacts).

Following is an excerpt from an ODFW e-mail...

Effective October 1, ocean waters outside the 40 fathom line only will reopen to fishing for groundfish (bottomfish), with long-leader gear only.

Black rockfish, cabezon, lingcod, and yelloweye rockfish may not be retained.

This combination of open area, gear, and species will allow anglers to selectively target species such as yellowtail, canary, and widow rockfishes with minimal bycatch of yelloweye rockfish and other bottom-dwelling species. The bag limit will be 10 marine fish, and a descending device must be used when releasing rockfish.

Flatfish (sanddabs, sole, flounder, California halibut), as well as spearfishing for lingcod only, remain open at all depths, but flatfish (or lingcod) may not be retained on the same trip with any other groundfish. Inside the 40 fathom line, the ocean remains closed to all bottomfish angling, except for flatfish, through the remainder of 2017. We have updated our sport groundfish webpage (http://www.dfw.state.or.us/MRP/finfish/groundfish_sport/index.asp) with the new information, as well as a diagram and specifications of longleader gear (minimum 30' leader between terminal weight and lowest hook; non-compressible float above the hooks, lures no longer than 5"), and an updated "What Can I Keep and How Many" card. There is also a link to the 40 fathom line waypoints.

Season Info:

All-Depth Halibut reopens September 2nd and 3rd (Friday & Saturday) .

Non-Selective Coho opens September 2nd for a quota of 6000 fish (from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain).

Breaking News...We have space available for Tuna Monday the 25th, call us quick!

A sport boat was out of Depoe Bay today and did bring in some tuna. Not big numbers but they were big fish. Call us so we can get an expedition underway soon.

Just to clarify the Ground Fish closure that was effective Sunday the 17th of September. Due to having reached the quotas of Black Rockfish and Cabezon for 2017, all fishing for Rock fish and Ling Cod in the ocean is closed (and from the shore). This closure is for the entire Oregon Coast, not just limited to Depoe Bay and Newport.

This is Not because we have caught all the fish, the fish populations are strong, we have just reached this years quota on the previously mentioned species. There are several factors that have impacted this. The first was a less than stellar salmon season, putting more pressure on the ground fish. The second factor was a poor Tuna season, putting even more pressure on the ground fish. Additionally our black rockfish quotas were reduced significantly at the beginning of 2017. Fishing for rockfish has been very good this year, all year. Statistically both Newport and Depoe Bay have recorded the highest catches on the coast for rockfish.

The closure is in effect until January 1st when we start fishing on a new quota. At this time it is unknown if the Deep Water Fishery (outside 40 fathoms) that traditionally opens October 1st will open. We should know by September 27th if that fishery will open on time. If it does it will be open for Ling Cod and Rockfish species of Canaries, Yellow Tail and Bocaccio. It would of course exclude Black Rockfish and Cabezon.

If the Deep Water Fishery does not open October 1st it will open January 1st 2018 when the 2018 quotas take effect.

If there are changes to this we will let you know.

This closure is for the entire Oregon Coast, not just limited to Depoe Bay and Newport.

This is Not because we have caught all the fish, the fish populations are strong, we have just reached this years quota on the previously mentioned species. There are several factors that have impacted this. The first was a less than stellar salmon season, putting more pressure on the ground fish. The second factor was a poor Tuna season, putting even more pressure on the ground fish. Additionally our black rockfish quotas were reduced significantly at the beginning of 2017. Fishing for rockfish has been very good this year, all year. Statistically both Newport and Depoe Bay have recorded the highest catches on the coast for rockfish.

The closure is in effect until January 1st when we start fishing on a new quota. At this time it is unknown if the Deep Water Fishery (outside 40 fathoms) that traditionally opens October 1st will open. We should know by September 27th if that fishery will open on time. If it does it will be open for Ling Cod and Rockfish species of Canaries, Yellow Tail and Bocaccio. It would of course exclude Black Rockfish and Cabezon.

If the Deep Water Fishery does not open October 1st it will open January 1st 2018 when the 2018 quotas take effect.

Season Info:

All-Depth Halibut reopens September 2nd and 3rd (Friday & Saturday) .

Non-Selective Coho opens September 2nd for a quota of 6000 fish (from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain).

Bad news from ODFW.

Rockfish and Ling Cod in the nearshore fishery closes for 2017 Sunday at 11:59 PM. As a result we are trying to get every opportunity for fishing in before it closes. We are running morning and afternoon trips as the weather allows. This is happening due to the rockfish quota on black rockfish being exceeded for the year. yellow eye, and cabezon quotas have been meet as well.

We do have limited space available for All-Depth Halibut on Saturday.

Coho Salmon has closed again after only six days of the non-selective season.

We still have no good news on Tuna. Our intel puts the fish offshore 120 to 160 miles and the catch numbers are not strong. Our intel from up and down the coast isn't encouraging at all. So far this year has been a bust and we are just as disappointed as anyone. We will continue to to keep our finger on the pulse of the fishery.
Rumors abound of fish being taken in isolated incidents, we have not been able to substantiate this rumors.

We got bad news from ODFW just this afternoon, the non-selective Coho season will close at 11:59 September 7, 2017. Our 7900 fish quota lasted just six days. It really is difficult to believe that we have had good enough fishing to use up the quota that fast. Consequently for those people who have reservations for Coho salmon fishing we will have to switch to fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod.

The Rockfish bite was somewhat "off" today. Although people worked hard limit catches were hard to come by.

The bad news on the docks is the tuna fishing. Although we have good water temp the chlorophyll levels are way off. We had a boat out Friday that was the second highest producing boat in the fleet with just one fish (the top producer had 3).

We are taking a day off due to inclement weather. High winds have whipped the ocean into a frenzy. We are optimistic that it will moderate soon. As you can see from the photo the Salmon have been snapping pretty good. It has been on and off for the Salmon this year. We are getting close to the end of Salmon for the fin-clipped season, if the quota lasts, the season ends July 31st . It will reopen for the Non-Selective Salmon Season September 2nd.

Bottom fishing is still holding up well and the crab are filling up better, we still have to cull the soft ones but it is getting better. We are seeing very good catches of Rockfish and good numbers of Ling hitting the fillet tables, limits on Rockfish are common, Ling are going about 1 1/2 per rod.

In Tuna news Saturday we had boats out that got into fish at 30 to 35 miles. They were not big fish nor were the numbers as high as we would like (who doesn't want more Tuna?) The catches ran from just over one per person to over 3 1/2. Not great but a good place to start. With the weather event that we are having right now we should start to see some good edges developing, something we haven't seen yet. As always we are at the mercy of the weather.

For some the bite was smoking hot, for others they had to work at it but at the end of the day everyone finished strong. We had good catches on all the boats, Rockfish, Lings, Cabezon etc. along with good crab catches.

We had some Coho taken yesterday late and we have about out again this afternoon, we will let you know how that turns out.

We are still waiting on "Solid" tuna intel. You will know as soon as we do. It is looking better...

We have one seat empty for all-depth Halibut on August 5th.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/17/2017

A hard running current made for tough fishing today but in spite of that our boats were quite successful. Limits of Rockfish or very close to them and decent numbers of Ling Cod coming on board. Crabbing was made more difficult by the current but we did get good crab numbers, even after culling the soft ones out 5-8 person was the take.

We had no boats out today for Coho but we will tomorrow. We will let you know how it goes.

Our latest Tuna intel still puts them about 75 miles offshore. The intel is from a good source and we feel confident that it is reliable. Obviously that is still too far out for us. We will keep our fingers on the pulse and update you when things change.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/16/2017

Bottom fishing today took some effort. After a slow start the finally lit off and folks did very well in the morning. Some of the boats got into some huge canary rockfish. Not everyone limited on all their fish but all those fishing did well. The ocean was really nice in the morning but developed some wind chop in the afternoon. Crabbing continues to be good.

The salmon bite has slowed down at least for the moment. We are bringing home fish and releasing quite a few OFTMs but it hasn't been smoking hot like a few days ago.

We still haven't gotten good Tuna intel yet, too few fish too far out seems to be the theme from our sources. That can all change quickly so we are keeping track.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/14/2017

We had another great day of fishing at Dockside. The bottom fish was good though everyone had to work for their fish. Everyone ended up with good numbers of Rockfish and good compliments of Ling Cod. Crabbing remains good, about 4-8 per person even after culling out the soft ones.

The boats that went to Cohoville had good action with many releases of OFTMs (One Fin Too Many). They ened the day with one per rod to keep. We are sure glad to see some Salmon show up around here.

Our most recent Tuna intel is not good. The conditions look good but there is just one problem, no Tuna yet. We have cancelled our trips for the weekend, we don't feel we have a reasonable opportunity to put fish in the boat for you. Keep watching, we will let you know when prospects improve.

DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/13/2017

Coho Salmon were on the bite again today, the Triumph didn't quite limit but they had loads of action. In defense of the Triumphs fishing prowess they likely would have limited but had to quit a little early at the request of the crew.

Our boat that was Chinook fishing today had some nice Chinook (I never met one I didn't like) and the fishermen also opted to retain some Coho too. All in all a good day on the salmon grounds.

Bottom fishing produced mixed results, some of the boats limited on Rockfish and struggled on Ling while others limited on Ling and struggled on Rockfish early on. At the end of the day very good catches were produced to include yet another incidental Halibut. We don't want to create unrealistic expectations of incidental Halibut but they do happen from time to time.

Still waiting on today's Tuna intel, we will post it as soon as we get it. It is beginning to look promising for upcoming expeditions.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Once again Dockside Charters and the Samson lead the fleet! Samson and crew put a LIMIT of Coho in the boat for their clients today including some for the crew. They proved that the old adage of "A Dry Line Catches No Fish" is just as true as ever. Triumph had a great trip to Cohoville too.

The rest of our fleet was bottom fishing. It was good yet again, boat loads of Rockfish and Ling and good numbers of Crab for good measure, although we had no incidental Halibut catches. All the boats were blessed with a remarkably nice ocean.

Tuna intel still puts them offshore too far and out of reach. We need a little different weather pattern to bring them in range. Anything but more North wind. Forecasting indicates the fish are slowly moving inshore.

Great fishing on the bottom fishing grounds again today with most of the boats absolutely crushing it. Limits limits and more limits, both Ling and Rockfish. The ocean was as nice as it could be today just for good measure. Crabbing is still good but the soft ones (recently molted) need to be culled out.

We have hit our quota on the all-depth Halibut and won't have any more all depth days until August 4-5. We have had several taken inshore as incidental catch on bottom fish trips the past few days. That is always a nice bonus.

Coho Salmon remains quite slow, but if we put in no effort we certainly won't catch any.

The Depoe Bay Salmon Enhancement group finished their fin-clipping yesterday with the help of many volunteers. A big Thank-You to the salmon Enhancement Team and all the volunteers that made it happen.

We have fishing adventures leaving our docks every day the ocean allows, remember, we only fish on days that end in "Y".

Once again the Salmon Enhancement Commission has raised a number of smolts equal to the years quota of fish, right here in Depoe Bay and all with volunteers. Come help with this worthwhile cause, there will be BBQ hot dawgs and other refreshments.

The good news for Coho Salmon is that there have been a few show up so we are getting after them.

Bottom fishing continues good with limits of Rockfish and Ling Cod hitting the fillet tables regularly. We have been getting a great variety on the Rockfish too, lots of different colors in the fish tubs. Crabbing is good with 4-8 per person even after culling out the soft ones.

We just got word that there is not enough quota remains for any more All-Depth Halibut back up days. The All-Depth summer season will open August 4-5.

Inshore Halibut remains slow with only a few being taken.

We are gearing up for some Tuna fishing in the next few days, we will keep you posted.

Starting June 24th the fin clipped season starts for a quota of 18,000 fish or until July 31st or when the quota has been caught.

There will be a non-selective (Coho) season of 6,500 fish starting Sept. 2nd and ending Sept. 30th or when the quota has been caught.

We haven't seen much of the front inshore yet other than rain and wind 15-20 knots. Friday's forecast is a significant improvement and we are shuffling boats to try and accommodate as many folks from Thursday as possible.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing continues to be quite good (see the picture) and the crab numbers have come up a bit, even with the fact that we have to cull out the soft recently molted crab. There have been a few Chinook salmon taken as incidental catch on rockfish trips.

The inshore Halibut fishery has been slow with only a few fish being taken. Wednesday produced some nice ones though.

Salmon (Coho) quotas have been set for the central coast.

Starting June 24th the fin clipped season starts for a quota of 18,000 fish or until July 31st or when the quota has been caught.

There will be a non-selective (Coho) season of 6,500 fish starting Sept. 2nd and ending Sept. 30th or when the quota has been caught.

We are planning reasonably priced excursions for the Total Eclipse Event coming up on the 21st of August and we are making reservations at this time. Call us for details.

Fishing was pretty darn good today, limits or near limits of Rockfish but not so many Lings. Crabbing was pretty good too, averaging about 6 per person. The ocean was a little wiggly but the sun came out and it was a good day to be on the water.

The latest addition to the Dockside fleet is finally here. In the next few days we will post pictures and info regarding the "HOT PURSUIT". It will be ready to fish soon!

Today (Sunday) the seas came up too much to get out fishing. We were blessed Friday and Saturday with go calm seas and we were on the water fishing with alacrity. Friday was the last day of the Deep Water Ling Cod fishing until October and it was great. The seas were great the wind calm and the fish were on the bite. The boats we had out there did really well, a great grade of Lings and Rockfish. Everyone caught their limit and did it in short order.

The nearshore fisheries have been doing extremely well too. Limits of Rockfish and Ling Cod are the rule rather than the exception. Crab quality is still very high and folks are getting 5-7 per person.

Of late anytime we can get out there it has been smoking hot fishing. Today (Wednesday) and yesterday were not days we could get out, the seas are raging and the winds are howling. Fishing has been remarkably good for Lings and Rockfish, crabbing not as strong. Crab are at the pinnacle of quality but we continue to compete with the commercial crabbers so we have not been getting limits, usually 4-6 per person.

The weather system that is hammering us right now is supposed to move through with better conditions Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We still have some space available for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The seas started out fine Saturday and about three hours into the the trip the wind come up it started raining buckets, no matter because our boats were nearly limited by that time (with many Lings). We exercised caution and came home. Today we had a very good window of opportunity, we got four boats underway and by the end of the day everyone was limited on both Lings and Rockfish. Crabbing was slower, but many of the commercial boats have moved their gear out and it should improve before long.

We will be running trips as the weather and marine conditions allow. We have trips scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday with some space available. Call 541-765-2545 to make your reservation.

There are changes in the Rockfish regs for 2017, still a 7 fish bag limit (plus two Ling Cod, aggregate total 9). The new regs are as follows: up to 6 Black Rockfish, up to 4 Blue/Deacon Rockfish (including Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish), up to 7 Canary Rockfish. A little confusing and the new regs will require Skipper and Deckhands to excersize their higher math skills, but it keeps us fishing and appears to be reasonable management of the resource.

Coming up in the spring is the new long leader Rockfish fishery, it is still in the rule making process but promises to be exciting. We will let you know as soon as more information is available.

We wish everyone a prosperous, productive, Fishy and Happy 2017! We at Dockside will continue to provide the high level of personal service we are known for and will strive to keep improving.

The new regs are as follows: up to 6 Black Rockfish, up to 4 Blue/Deacon Rockfish (including Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish), up to 7 Canary Rockfish. A little confusing and the new regs will require Skipper and Deckhands to excersize their higher math skills, but it keeps us fishing and appears to be reasonable management of the resource.

Coming up in the spring is the new long leader Rockfish fishery, it is still in the rule making process but promises to be exciting. We will let you know as soon as more information is available.

We wish everyone a prosperous, productive, Fishy and Happy 2017! We at Dockside will continue to provide the high level of personal service we are known for and will strive to keep improving.

Gift Certificates are great Birthday Gifts for fishermen and Whale Watchers. (always available)

For the first time since 2004, anglers will be able to RETAIN ONE CANARY ROCKFISH as part of the daily bag limit beginning MARCH 11 thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock

However, due to a decrease in federally determined harvest guidelines, anglers will be LIMITED TO THREE BLUE ROCKFISH PER DAY AS PART OF THE SEVEN FISH MARINE BAG LIMIT AND THE RETENTION OF CHINA, COPPER AND QUILLBACK ROCKFISH WILL BE PROHIBITED. These regulations went into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

10/29/2016

Friday, October 28th we were out on the water. It was a great day, conditions were good and the fish were on the bite. We ended up with limits of Rockfish for everyone and near limits of Ling Cod. It was a fine way to end the month. Given the marine forecast for Sunday and Monday we are not at all likely to be getting out.

Dockside will be closed, as always, for the month of November. That gives us time to heal Skippers, Deckhands, Office Personnel, boats etc... December 1st we will be reopened and raring to go.

We were able togged boats out fishing Sunday. The weather window opened for us and fish were BITING. Limits of Rockfish were the order of the day and good numbers of Ling Cod hit the decks (well over one per rod average). The wind and waves held off and we got another great day in. This time of year good days on the water are at a premium and we enjoy every chance we get to get on the water.

The forecast is not looking very good for the rest of the week but it can change quickly (for good or bad) and we will keep on top of it.

As predicted we had a couple of pretty good storms blow through Depoe Bay. Fortunately they were not nearly as bad as what was forecast but were still bad enough to keep us in port. In fact the port (bar) has been closed to all traffic. There is a large swell forecast for a few days yet but as soon as things lay down we will be back on the water.

If we are to believe the weather guessers it will be a few days before we are able to get back offshore for any of these guys. Fact of the matter is it doesn't look like we will be going anywhere for fishing or whale watching until at least Tuesday or Wednesday. There is a 13 foot swell forecast for Monday. As far as the storm system that is forecast, it is here. Crabbing in the ocean will be closed October 15, so it looks like we are done with that until it reopens, hopefully mid December. Crabbing this season started off slow then built to a fever pitch and has been nothing short of spectacular.

We are settling into our winter routine, fishing between storms as we are able. As usual we will be closed the month of November. That allows us to heal the wounds accumulated through the season to skippers, deckhands, boats and shoreside personnel. We have had a great season to date and we look forward to finishing out the year on a positive note.

As for the next few days the storm watching will be awe inspiring. The biggest swells are forecast for late Saturday (30+ feet) so get yourself a room with a view and settle back to watching comfort.

Rough seas have kept us at home both Monday and Tuesday so we don't have much very current to report.

Salmon fishing for the wily Coho improved dramatically over the weekend. The Smokin Reel Limited early both days and our other boats brought in good catches too.

Bottom fishing was also good over the weekend and crabbing was stellar.

Tuna reports are sporadic, nothing there to be encouraged by and the weather forecast for the weekend offshore stinks. We are very much afraid that we are done with Tuna for the year. Sigh...

The Samson is Salmon fishing today and is having good action, only halfway through the trip and they have half their fish. The skipper reports that the fish are an excellent grade, very nice size to them. (Space available for Thursday).

Bottom fishing yesterday was good as usual and crabbing was very good (mostly limits). Not a lot of Lings came in yesterday but there was a nice Halibut caught as an incidental catch.

We tried for Tuna yesterday but after getting about ten miles offshore the Southerly winds proved too much. The Tuna have been at about 35 miles out and the numbers vary from day to day. Sunday was about three per rod. Monday only one per rod. (No one got skunked though)! It is that time of the year when they can really go wild.

Rockfish and Ling Cod bit well today the catch as always varied from boat to boat. By and large everyone got a decent catch and many went home with limits. Crabbing continues to be good, so good in fact that you need to figure on significant wait times to get them cleaned and cooked. The crab cooking staff has been overwhelmed.

Now then about those Tuna... The satellite imaging shows a good temp break moving in. It is hard to know how far it will move how quickly but we are watching it and will let you know when we think it is go time.

Docksides Halibut boats struggled today, it took the entire trip to get our fish. limits were hard to come by but good numbers eventually came on board. The grade of fish was small but at the end of the day we were happy to have them. Next opening is June 2, 3, and 4. A lot can change in a week.

The inshore boats were Rockin the Rockfish with good numbers of Ling Cod. Morning and afternoon trips were very good. Crabbing on both was excellent.

Salmon Update:

Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption.

Coho seasons will have reduced quotas of 26,000 fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 25 through August 7, or until the quota is reached which ever comes first. The September non-selective season that will open on September 3 and continue through the earlier of September 30 or the quota 7,500 coho.

We were out today on a very windy choppy ocean. It took the whole trip but all of our boats did very well on Rockfish, Lings were hard to come by, only three were taken by our fleet today. The dandy pictured came aboard the Tacklebuster a couple of days ago. Crabbing was excellent today.

We have trips scheduled for Monday (tomorrow) with space available. Check-in time is 6:30 AM.

Our six man Halibut boats were restricted by the Coast Guard due to bar conditions Friday and Saturday. The big boats did very well and were in fact back in port with all their fish early. (The last boat was back in at 2:30 in the afternoon).

The Samson ans Smokin Reel were inshore and the Rockfish bit well, the Ling Cod not so much. The ocean maintained a significant swell all day though the wind never came up. We will see what tomorrow brings.

We are getting ready for the second round of Halibut fishing Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There are still a few seats left on the Kadaho and the Tacklebuster for these trips.

Rockfish were a little slow today but the Lings continued to bite voraciously. All in all there were reel good numbers of fish hitting the fillet tables. As always the Kadaho and Triumph did a great job of putting people on the fish. Crabbing was productive today with 8 per/person. We do have room for a few walk-ins in the morning. Come and see us.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/15/2016

Halibut season has gotten off to an inauspicious start. Fishing has been tough, everyone has had to put in long days to make it happen. Thursday and Friday were good though not all boats limited. Saturday, well I'd rather not talk about it, thank you. The ocean was flat for all three days, we will see what the next opener brings this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The inshore fishery for Rockfish and Ling Cod has been smoking hot and crabbing has picked up a lot. Today all the boats did very well, limits of rockfish were the order of the day and there were many Lings coming over the rail also. What a great way to finish the weekend. We do have space available for the coming week for Chinook, Rockfish and Lings and Halibut too. Give us a call to make your reservation.
