Fishing Was Good Saturday


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

01/14/2018

We were able to get out Saturday and the fishing was very good. The Deep Water did not produce Lings like we expected but the inshore fishery produced Limit catches of Ling and Rockfish. Crabbing was very good and the quality of the crab is as good as it gets. We did manage to get a boat out today in spite of the forecast.

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.

We have boats out fishing today and the fish are snapping. One boat is already closing in on a limit of Lings after only 1 1/2 hours of fishing.

So call Dockside to make a reservation to bring in the new year in a fishy fashion. 541-765-2545

Evening Update:

All our boats finished the day with limit catches of fish and limits or near limits of crab. All in all it was a great first day of 2018. The ocean was flat, wind was calm and fish and crab were on the bite. We do have some room for some walk-ins in the morning, check in time is 07:30.

Tomorrow (Tuesday the 2nd) looks like the best day for a while if the weather guessers are to be beleived .

THE GOBLINS WENT FISHING TODAY


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/31/2017

We had a "Monster" Bite on the Long Leader fishing today. It started strong and finished strong on an ocean that did nothing but improve as the day went on. A marked difference from yesterday, it was cobby at first but just got better. The fishing was "Howlin Good" What a good way to end the month.

Dockside will be closing for the month of November but will reopen December 1st, ready for action.

Happy Halloween!

More Of Those Long Leader Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/24/2017

The ocean has been pretty cranky as forecast but it looks like we get a break Wednesday and Thursday. We have trips scheduled with space available. 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.


We will be making trips as the weather allows through the month of October. As always Dockside will be closed for the month of November to perform maintenance on our boats, skippers, deckhands and office staff. We will be back at it with vigor December first.

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.
