We had good fishing this weekend (those of a that weren't stuck at the Sportsman Show). And we had a great time at the sportsman show by the way, it was great seeing everyone there. Tacklebuster was the only boat we had out fishing today (Monday) but they did a bang-up job. Lots of Rockfish and Ling Cod as well as a good crab catch.

ODFW posted the recommended dates for Halibut All- Depth fishing while we were at the show. They are posted below. Check them out and give us a call to make your reservation. They will fill up fast.

We are heading out to the NW Sportsmans Show at the Portland expo. It runs this Wednesday through Sunday, we hope to see you there. It is always a great annual event featuring nearly everything under the sun.

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.

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.

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.

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. Most have been taken on light tackle, putting the needle on the Fun-O-Meter right at the top. Space available for Thursday.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/03/2016

We had mixed results on the salmon opener, some boats did quite well while others not so much. Everyone had pretty good action, one of our afternoon trips produced 1 1/2 fish per rod.

Rockfish bit well and there were a few lings hitting the table. Crabbing was good again today, as many as 11 apiece.

As for the the last day of all depth Halibut for this week... It was like candy. An all day sucker that is. They did get all their fish but it was no cake walk.

Tuna trips headed out tomorrow we'll see what happens.

Sadly we have no more space for Halibut fishermen.

Still nothing to report on Chinook Salmon, we had no one out for them today. Non-selective Coho season opens this Saturday.

Tuna is looking much more promising as soon as this weekend, the southerlies we have needed have started to blow the fish back in.

We have boats out plundering the reef this morning, the fish pictured was just caught on the Smokin Reel. Rockfish and Ling Cod yesterday took considerable effort but most everyone ended up with very good catches. Crabbing remains good with catches of 5-12 per person.

Chinook Salmon continues to be painfully slow. Coho Salmon opens for the non-selective fishery September 3rd.

Inshore Halibut has produced nothing to be excited about this year, very hit or miss... All-depth Halibut reopens September 2nd and 3rd. We have limited space available on the 2nd only.

Tuna News: The fish are slowly working their way back inshore. The weather forecast for the next few days should help bring the fish back into range. We have trips scheduled for the 5th and 6th with some space available.

Themes recent report as of this evening (Sunday) has fish being caught at 55-60 miles, not in great numbers yet but that is an improvement. If the extended forecasts hold that will keep bringing them in.

We were actually able to get on the water two whole days in a row. Captain David had the Smokin Reel fishing deep water Thursday and as you can see from the picture it was a great trip. All the planets lined, the ocean was flat with hardly a breath of wind and the big Lings bit. Fishing on the inshore reefs was also good, limits of Rockfish and good numbers of Ling tho not limits. Friday was a transition day with the conditions changing. Fishing remained good on the inshore with conditions unsuitable for offshore. We got limits of Rockfish, a few Lings then got off the water as swells and wind built.

Another day in the "Bad Weather Siege" we seem to be stuck in. A rapidly developing low to the North of us with an accompanying cold front will be moving in today. Conditions right now are impressive on the reefs out front of Depoe Bay. Swells straight out of the West are amplifiying on the reefs and are in the 16 to 18 foot range (an occasional 20 thrown in for good measure). Periodically there is a series of swells that stretch all the way across North and South reefs as a single swell. Impressive. Winds are steady at 25 knots with higher gusts. All in all a good day for storm watching, not so much for fishing. We should get a break by Sunday though the forecast swell in still ample, Monday looks better. We will keep watching.

We have actually been able to get out fishing and whale watching the past few days. The swell has been moderate but there has been plenty of cold (easterly) wind. Crabbing has been good too. There is still space available for tomorrow and it looks like that may be our best opportunity (according to the forecast we will be enjoying a significant increase in the swell for a few days).

Taking a moment to reflect, 2015 was another great year for Dockside. We were very busy, we added some great boats (and crews) to our fleet and we are ready for the challenges that lie ahead in 2016. Most of all we want to thank all of our great clients, without you we are nothing and we never forget that. That in fact is what causes us to provide the level of service we do, we know that is what sets us apart from the crowd. We are very pleased that we have the pieces in place to provide opportunities in all our fisheries and give you the service you deserve shoreside. Happy New Year and here's to 2016.

We are enjoying a little break in the storms that have created such dramatic marine conditions for us. The swells are down to only 8 to 10 feet at the moment. Almost fishable, however the wind is forecast to hit us with another blast this afternoon and push the swells back up into the 13-14 foot range for a few more days.

Counting the days till Christmas...there is still time to mail out your Gift Certificate for that hard to buy for fisherman. We wouldn't want them to be disappointed on Christmas morning.

In other news, some of you know, some don't but here it is. Last Friday night Capt. Rick Hall's boat the "Siamez" sank at her moorings. Fuel and oil leakage have been mitigated with containment booms and a diver plugged the tank vents so there is none escaping from the boat. Rick is working with a salvage crew and it should be raised soon. At this time we have no knowledge (just speculation) of what caused her to go down.

12/10/2015

As you can see from the picture the is a bit of drama in the harbor today. A combination of a high tide and some big storm surge has the harbor slopping over the seawall. The boats are really jumping at their moorings. The storms just keep coming. We will be fishing again just as soon as things settle down. Today's forecast is for 36 ft seas, settling down to a mere 13 by Monday.

Gift certificates are available by phone or in the office and make great gifts for fishermen and whale watchers.

12/09/2015

The torrential rains have slowed but it is still a bit breezy here. Gale warning for winds this AM then a Storm warning for the rest of the day. 32 foot seas forecast for Friday. Should make for epic storm watching, not so good for fishing and whale watching. The forecast through Sunday doesn't hold any promise that we will get out but this can't last forever. Or can it... Watch for changes on the website regarding ODFW license fee increases coming January 1st, 2016.

We are being plagued by some rough seas and high winds this week. Our deep water trips got turned around due to wind and waves Saturday, Sunday was a complete blow out (not unlike some college football games). More of the same for Monday, Tuesday looks like we may have a small window of opportunity then things fall apart again. Given the forecast Tuesday looks like a nearshore day. We have space available, give us a call.

Dockside has had a great season so far and we want to thank all of you for that. Our clients are what make it happen. We will be closing for the month of November as we always do. That gives us time to mend boats, mend skippers and deckhands and maybe slip in a vacation.

Bottom fishing has been good. Rockfish limits are more the rule than the exception, Ling Cod not so much. Good one day slow another.

We are planning an 8 hour bottom fishing trip to Pacific City on Sunday. These trips are very popular due to the scenery that you see on no other trip i.e. the mouth of the Salmon River, Cascade Head the Arch Rocks and Haystack Rock. Even more important is the fact that you are fishing on reefs that have very little fishing pressure. There is still some space available.

When the marine conditions permit we are making trips to the offshore spots that produce the big Lings like the ones pictured.

Halibut is open again for the all depths fishery. The bonus on this is that we may retain rockfish and Ling Cod on these Halibut trips. This is due to the Rockfish and Ling Cod fisheries opening to all depths Oct. 1. A real bonus to be sure. We have limited space available for Halibut on Friday only. Call soon to make your reservation.

We just this morning got bad news on the Halibut fishery...We had received word from ODFW that we would be able to retain Rockfish and Ling Cod join this October 2nd and 3rd Halibut opener. THAT INFORMATION FROM ODFW WAS IN ERROR. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RETAIN ROCKFISH OR LING COD. AN UNFORTUNATE ERROR ON THE PART OF ODFW.

The non-selective Coho season is grinding to an inglorious close. The last day is Wednesday and it has been SLOW.

Rockfish and Ling Cod have been holding up really well and crabbing continues to be very good.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Yes, as a matter of fact Salmon fishing is still slow, but there are some nice ones being taken none the less. They are just too few and far between.

Rockfish and Ling Cod continue to be good. The Ling Cod bite has picked up in the past few days. Crab continue to be "on the bite".

Sadly it looks as though Tuna may be waining for the season. They are still out there but are very finicky and don't even want to bite on bait much.

Our Pacific City Rockfish trips continue to be popular and productive. These eight hour trips will put you on reefs that don't get much fishing pressure. Crab can be included on these adventures too.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/09/2015

Salmon fishing has been pretty slow, not even one per rod but as you can see some of them pretty darn nice.

Bottom fishing continues good, very good catch on the Lings today too. Crabbing is producing near limits of good quality crab (we continue to grade out the soft ones).

Tuna is on hold because of the offshore conditions (wind primarily) but we look forward to good trips through September.

We still have some space on upcoming 8 hour long range bottom fishing trips. A great excursion to reefs that have little fishing pressure and incomparable scenery on the way. Views of Cascade Head and Hart's Cove you can get nowhere else.

Bottom fishing today was very good, limits of bi Rockfish good numbers of Lings and limits of crab.

Tuna was the other option today and the Kadaho slammed them. It was a wide open bite and they are on their way home with over a hundred fish. (118 to be exact) They crushed it today... One of the days we dream of.

PFMC has transfered 8200 fish from the "regular coho" season to the "NON-SELECTIVE" season opening September 4th. The net result is a quota of 20,700 for the fishery from September 4th to September 30th. Good news indeed.

Tuna fishing today was on the scratchy side, the guys worked hard to "scratch up" the fish they got. Fish counts were low with just over one per rod to almost three per rod. On the up side the fish were all in the HAWG category (25-30+).

Rockfish and Ling Cod did well today, mostly limits on Rockfish for both morning and afternoon trips with a few Lings thrown in here and there for good measure.

Even with the Southerly winds the ocean remains nice and will be through Friday according to the forecast. Saturday and Sunday don't look as promising at this time. Lets hope it moderates.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/28/2015

Things have been moving at lightning speed here at Dockside. Not only have we welcomed the Kadaho, Starship and the Tacklebuster to our fleet but just yesterday the Siamez also joined us adding to the Samson, Affair, Smokin Reel, Triumph and Chason. All 9 (nine) boats are a great fit here and will continue to provide the high standards of fishing and service they and Dockside are known for.

The young man is the picture was a happy fisherman with his first ever Coho brought aboard the Affair.

There have been several Halibut brought in as incidental catch on Bottom Fishing trips recently. Bottom Fishing continues to be strong for rock fish and some really nice Lings.

Tuna is the hot bite at the moment. They are well within range. The Tacklebuster, Kadaho, Triumph and Affair have produced good numbers. There are still spots on some of the boats, including the Siamez, for upcoming trips.

Coho continues until August 9th. The bite has slowed for the past few days but the next wave of fish should be on their way.
Again when calling the office please leave a message if you can't get through. We will return your call as soon as we get time.
Thank you to all who have rebooked your trips through Dockside Charters.

TACKLEBUSTER Underway


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/21/2015

Changes continue in a big way at Dockside Charters... We are very proud to announce the addition of the "Tacklebuster" to our fleet. With decades of experience the father and son team of Captains Juergen and Tyler Turner are highly respected in the charter industry, best of all fish fear them. The Tacklebuster is a 50 foot boat purpose built for chartering by the Delta Marine corporation. She is powered by twin late model 8.3 liter, 400 horsepower 6C series Cummins engines to get you to the fish quickly. Juergen and Tyler both work hard to maintain the boat at the highest level from stem to stern, including tackle for all fisheries. They fish for everything our corner of the Pacific has to offer. Halibut, Tuna, Salmon, Rockfish and Ling Cod. She is also a very popular vessel for whale watching excursions. The Tacklebuster is ready for your request at noon this Wednesday.

Now for the fishing report: The Triumph was on the Tuna grounds today and did quite well. Where yesterday the fish didn't hit the light tackle today was just the opposite, James had them boiling around the boat with multiple fish hook-ups on light tackle. Nothing is any more fun.

Salmon was slow early in the day except on the Smokin Reel. Captain David Peterson put on a clinic for the rest of us on the salmon grounds. He set the bar high. Afternoon Coho fishing started off with a bang then fizzled for a while. The fish continue to grow fast and are quite plump and tasty.

Rockfish bit well with limits for most everyone. A few Lings were taken but no where near Limits all-round. Crab numbers are also holding up well, even after culling out the soft ones.

There are still a few spaces for Tuna this weekend and the marine forecast is promising. There a few seats available for Salmon and Rockfish as well. Give us a call.

Wow! Where to begin. Things have been moving so fast around Dockside it's hard to keep up with it all. First of all the Coho Salmon fishing has been great. Many trips have limited or really close to it, both morning and afternoon with great action. Bottom fishing and crabbing have held up well. Limits of rockfish more the rule than the exception and a few really nice Ling cod coming to the boats. We are still culling the crab to make sure they have meat in them (due to the molt). Tuna is starting we still have spots available.

As we are sure most of you already know there has been a real shake up in the Charter industry in Depoe Bay. Be assured Dockside has not been involved with any illegal activities. As of Saturday July 11th, we have added the Kadaho and the Starship to our fleet. We decided to welcome the skippers who elected to cooperate in the ongoing law enforcement investigation to our Dockside family. Please help us welcome them aboard! As soon as we have time we will get pictures of the boats and the skippers bios on our Fleet page.

Here it is Saturday evening and Halibut is done until the 11th of June. All of our boats limited today. The grade was not as good as it has been but everyone came home with fish. The ocean started of on the confused side but mellowed out as the day went on.

Rockfish were really on the bite both morning and afternoon, Ling Cod were slower but there were some taken. Crabbing seems to have picked up, quite a bit better than earlier in the season, good size and they are hard.

Here it is Memorial Day again. It is a very meaningful day to us here at Dockside given all that it represents, not only the sacrifices of Roy Bowers and Jack Chambers and others lost at sea but the sacrifices of our military service members that allow us the freedoms we enjoy. We invite everyone to attend the ceremony, It begins at 11:00 AM in the harbor parking lot in Depoe Bay and finishes with the procession to sea by the Fleet.

At Dockside we take this day not to fish but to participate in the 70th Annual Fleet of Flowers Ceremony in recognition of the day and to spend time with our families as now the season really begins in earnest. We do wish all of you and your families an enjoyable and safe holiday.



We do have space available for tomorrow, Tuesday the 26th. 6:30 AM check-in time, walk-ins welcome.

SALEM, Ore. -- The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission met today and set the 2015 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish that include significant changes to the composition of the seven fish daily bag limit for marine fish.

For the first time since 2004, anglers will be able to RETAIN ONE CANARY ROCKFISH as part of the daily bag limit beginning as EARLY AS MARCH, thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock. The exact date for the new rule will be announced following approval of a parallel federal harvest rule.

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 go into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015. ODFW staff had proposed a blue rockfish sub-limit of one per day, but after public testimony the Commission adopted a less-conservative limit of three blue rockfish per day.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

01/13/2015

Fishing offshore today was "Smoking Hot" on the Smoking Reel. Larry (pictured) caught both of his fish on the first drop, he might have jigged three or four times before bringing these beauties up along with a nice Yellow Tail Rockfish at the same time. We had all our fish in the boat after three drifts. We then moved inshore and struggled to get the Rockfish to go. Things were slow on the Samson on the inshore reefs too. Everyone got fish but not all got limits. The ocean was just as nice as could be, the sun was out and the wind was down.

The marine forecast for the next few days is not so good (like not good at all) through Saturday. We will see how things develop and hope the weather guessers get it wrong.

FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION SETS 2015 GROUNDFISH RULES

January 9, 2015

SALEM, Ore. -- The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission met today and set the 2015 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish that include significant changes to the composition of the seven fish daily bag limit for marine fish.

For the first time since 2004, anglers will be able to RETAIN ONE CANARY ROCKFISH as part of the daily bag limit beginning as EARLY AS MARCH, thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock. The exact date for the new rule will be announced following approval of a parallel federal harvest rule.

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 go into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015. ODFW staff had proposed a blue rockfish sub-limit of one per day, but after public testimony the Commission adopted a less-conservative limit of three blue rockfish per day.

As you can see the Lings are biting pretty good. Sunday the boats struggled early but kept work and ultimately did very well. We have no boats out today but the forecast for tomorrow is great. Then things blow apart on Wednesday and don't look good through Friday, wind and building swells. We have trips scheduled for tomorrow and space available.

Just a bit of information on the upcoming blue rockfish changes. (They take effect January 15th, 2015) We had a good number of charter skippers and other interested parties at the ODFW Fish Commission meeting in Salem last Friday, testifying on matters related to the changes. In this writers opinion we got as good or better an outcome as we could have hoped for. We actually got a higher limit of blue rockfish to retain than what the staff recommendation was (one blue rockfish). Both ODFW staff and the commission seemed truly interested in keeping us fishing and working through the federal regs for the best possible outcome.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

12/01/2014

The ocean was flat today with a little East wind blowing (cold). The bite was slow but steady and at the end of the trip we had them all, Rockfish and Ling Cod. The Lings were real nice with a 25 pounder a 30 and a 35. The rest were just "nice" fish. Good grade on the Rockfish too.
