Good News On The Deep Water Rockfish

"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).

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/25/2017

The Triumph was out on the Tuna grounds today and came home with some real Hoggs. 25 -35 pounders. The numbers weren't real high, just 2 1/2 fish per rod but the grade was wonderful. We have space on Thursday and Friday.

This news from ODFW tonight.


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 remains 7 marine fish, no more than 4 of which may be blue/deacon or other nearshore rockfish, 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.

ODFW will distribute a news release and a notice to our sport groundfish public email list with additional information tomorrow, Tuesday 9/26, when we are available to respond to the many anticipated questions. 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. I have also attached a copy of the longleader information to this email.

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.

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.

08/10/2017

Bottom fishing action has picked up again, fishing effort is being rewarded. There are still good numbers of Ling Cod hitting the fillet tables too. Crab numbers are up as well. We continue to be blessed with calm seas too and the forecast for the next few days is good.

We don't know yet if there is Halibut quota remaining for the all-depth fishery (tentatively set for Aug 18-19) as soon as ODFW posts the quota information.

We still have nothing positive to report about Tuna except they are positively too far offshore for us to go after. Intel we get from the commercial fleet puts them at 130-140 miles with relatively small catch numbers. We need some big changes in the weather patterns to bring them back in range and increase the numbers.

Coho Salmon season will reopen for the Non-Selective season September 2nd.

Season Info:

All-Depth Halibut will reopen August 4-5 (Friday & Saturday) and every other Friday- Saturday until the quota is reached.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/06/2017

Bottom fishing has slowed a little over the past few days.Limit catches have required extra work and just a bit of luck too. There are still good numbers of Ling hitting the fillet tables. Crabbing continues strong, though there are many soft ones that need to be culled out.

Friday and Saturdays all depth Halibut opener was a good one the bite started very slow both mornings but when the bite turned on the fish bit with a vengeance. The boats limited and got home early. There will be another opener in two weeks if there is enough quota remaining.

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). Our intel puts the bulk of the commercial fleet well outside of the 126th longitude, over one hundred miles from here. As disappointing as it is we have to pull the plug on tuna until conditions change.

Coho Salmon will reopen for the Non-selective season September 2nd.

Ling Cod Frenzy

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/01/2017

For the past couple of days the rockfish and Ling Cod have been a little off the bite, we have come home with decent catches but limits were hard to come by. Then came today, it was great on the bottom fish grounds. The Ling were in a frenzy and the rockfish bit very well too. Crab scores were above average, though we are still culling soft ones.

In Tuna News nothing is good. Too much wind from the wrong direction just isn't helping us. The surface temps look good enough but the chlorophyll levels are just awful. Dockside is watching carefully for the changes needed to get us back in the hunt for Charlie.

Inshore halibut is done for the season, reasoning being we had come too close to the quota so the plug was officially pulled.

Coho Salmon ended July 31st. The Non-selective season will open September 2nd.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/24/2017

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.

Yet another day of great fishing on the bottom fishing grounds. The Rockfish bite was hot and the Ling Cod bite was good. Not all limited on Lings but there were many caught and some fine specimens were among them. The afternoon trips were good as well. Crabbing continues good.

Coho Salmon action was good, there were many fish on the wire but not very good numbers of fin clipped fish. One boat got one fish per rod the others not that good. There were lots of fish on and gone and many releases of non-fin clipped fish.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

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:

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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 were able to get out fishing today in spite of the weather forecast (wind), there was very little swell but the wind came up early and made it very choppy. Fortunately the fish were on the bite and we got limits of Rockfish. The Ling Cod bite was good too with good numbers hitting the fillet tables, some boats got real close to limits others not as much but a great day on the water. Crabbing continues to be good with 4-7 per person even after culling out the soft ones.


We should know soon if we get All Depth Halibut dates June 29,30 and July 1st. (Thursday Friday and Saturday).

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/15/2017

Well here it is Thursday and we are faced with a major southerly weather event forecast. We cancelled everything for today based on that forecast, to include our offshore Halibut. At this moment the conditions on the Halibut grounds are pretty bad. Not much swell yet but winds are steady at over twenty knots with gusts to nearly thirty and the barometer is dropping. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottom fishing was tough today. We did our part, the fishermen did theirs, the fish however were decidedly uncooperative. Crabbing is still holding up well.

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

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.

Chinook continue to be slow on the bite.

Dockside was jumping with activity today. Bottom fishing and crabbing both in the morning and afternoon and all were very successful. Limit after limit of Rockfish, many limits of Lings and a great ocean to be out on. Crabbing dropped significantly in the AM then bounced right back in the afternoon.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day and Dockside traditionally takes the day to participate in the Fleet of Flower Services both shoreside and in the procession to sea. We do not fish on Memorial Day but take advantage of the opportunity to spend the day with our families, the last chance we get before the season really kicks into high gear.

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

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.

Halibut Will Open Again!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/28/2015

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:

09/23/2015

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.

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.
