The seas settled themselves down again and fishing has resumed with a vengeance. Bottom fishing is still really good although on any given day the Ling Cod numbers vary. Crabbing is good too.

The Hot pursuit put Limits of Salmon on the deck yesterday for all fishermen, Captain and crew. It was a good day for sure. The fin-clipped season ends the 31st. The non-selective season opens September 2nd.

We have Tuna action scheduled for the weekend, we will let you know how they bite.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

A Lucky Young Fisherman!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

Siletz Tribal Elder With Ling Cod Tribal Elder


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/20/2017

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 boats will be getting underway in the morning, we will keep you posted on how it goes. There are a few open seats for tuna Sunday and Monday.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

A Very Fine Ling Cod


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/19/2017

Here it is Wednesday again, where does the time go? All the Dockside boats were out on the bottom fishing grounds again today. 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.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

One Happy Young Fisherman


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

One Big Canary Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

Incidental Halibut Catch


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

Darn Right The Triumph Caught Coho


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

WooHoo Coho Salmon Today!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/12/2017



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.



Season Info:

Nearshore Halibut Season opens June 1 through October 31 or through a quota of 28,897 pounds

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

A Fine Pair Of Canary Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/10/2017

Bottom fishing didn't start out hot today but our boats finished strong with limits of Rockfish and a great catch on Ling Cod. This fishery has been good all year so far. We continue to pick up some incidental Halibut but are not producing much when we are targeting the inshore Halibut, go figure.

We has a boat out today for Coho, they had some good action but only kept one fish. We have good intel on fish to the south of us, if things run true to form we should be seeing them here in 5-7 days.

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.

We have hit our quota on the all-depth Halibut and won't have any more all-depth days until August 4-5
