Both of our primary fisheries that are available to us right now are doing well. The 5 hour Rockfish and Ling Cod trips are doing well as are the 6 hour Long Leader trips. We have been getting limits for most folks on these trips, of course on any given day it is still fishing and there are no guarantees beyond the fact that our Skippers will do everything in their power to put you on fish.

The seas have been calm and the forecast looks fisherman friendly for the next few days. We do have space available for the 5 and 6 hour trips, we even have some space available for All-Depth Halibut on Thursday Friday and we just a a couple seats open up for Saturday.

First Ling Cod of the Day


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

These Are From a Long Leader Trip


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

05/06/2018

We have boats out today for fishing. The conditions are not quite as nice as what were forecast but we are putting fish in the boats anyway. The forecast for tomorrow is better. We do have space available for both the 5 hour inshore trips and the 6 hour Long Leader. Any time we can get out for the Long Leader trips they have produced really well. Limits for the Long Leader are 10 Rockfish (the LL trips produce bigger fish too) but no Lings. The 5 hour trips are still 2 Lings over 22" and 5 Rockfish. Crabbing remains slow.

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.

Fishing Report:

As you can see in the photo the fishing yesterday was categorically good, Rockfish and Ling Cod were abundant to say the least.

His First Time At Sea, What A Way To Start


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

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.

Dockside Doesn't Just Target Black Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

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.

These Fish are From the Long Leader Fishery


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

04/23/2018

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

The marine forecast looks good through Saturday.

Yes the Ling Cod are Still Biting


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

04/19/2018

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.

Catch of the Day on the Starship


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

04/17/2018

The marine conditions have kept us in port for over a week now, high seas and high winds. However, it looks like we are getting a break, the forecast looks very fishable for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. At this time the forecast for the weekend is for some big swells again. Hopefully the forecast moderates for the weekend.

Fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod has been quite good and we have no reason to think it won't remain good. We do have some space available so give us a call (On-line booking now available but not within 48 hours of departure time).
