40+ Inch Ling Cod, A Fine Specimen (Today's Catch)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/23/2018

Rockfish and Ling Cod bit quite well on the inshore fishery. The Long Leader boats had to battle a hard running current but did very well in spite of it. Not everyone limited but the day was considered a winner.

The Halibut boats were fighting strong current and a lot of wind, depending on which corner of the ocean they went to, some boats limited while others didn't.

The marine forecast looks good for several days to come, let's go fishing.

Three Dandy Halibut


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/21/2018

All of our Halibut boats limited today, they had to work at it but they did get them all. Don't put off your Halibut trip too long, the quota will be going fast. We do have one space for tomorrow morning (Friday) and a couple more Saturday. The weather forecast is good.

The nearshore boats did great on Rockfish today, not a lot of Ling but dynamite fishing on the Rockfish.

The Long Leader boat we had out smoked em too. All and all a great day on the water.

Smoking Hot Long Leader Fishing


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/18/2018

The Long Leader fishery didn't disappoint today. Limit catches for everyone including the crew. When they went on the bite it was madness, mayhem, chaos and carnage. The majority of the catch were the coveted Yellow Tail Rockfish with a generous number of Canaries thrown in for good measure. The boats fishing the nearshore waters today struggled a good bit but kept working and produced decent but not limit catches. Crabbing continues to be excruciatingly slow.

Dockside not only has online reservation services for your convenience but we now have a self-check-in kiosk for those of you with online prepaid reservations. This is designed to minimize your time waiting to check in. If you need a fishing license too we suggest you visit ODFW's website and purchase one before arriving, further expediting your check in.

Ling Cod Were On The Bite


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/17/2018

Ling Cod and Rockfish were on the bite today, all of Dockside's boats did well today in fact. There was great variety on the Rockfish too. The boats offshore doing the Long Leader fishery did very well also. Not everyone limited but most all did. We have space available for most of our fisheries this week. Crabbing remains painfully slow...

The All-Depth Halibut fishery opens again this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (21-22-23). We still have a few spaces available so call to make your reservation or for your convenience use our on-line booking service.

Success On Inshore Halibut


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/13/2018

As you can see from the photo we have had some successes with inshore Halibut. Certainly not limits but enough action to keep the juices flowing and the hopes up.

We do have space available for the All-Depth Halibut openers scheduled for the 21st, 22nd and 23rd (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). Give the office a call to get on board.

We have also had some success with Chinook but it is still very slow. Rockfish have been on the bite well though Ling Cod have slowed down (water temp related?). The Long Leader trips have produced banner catches consistently, our skippers have it pretty well dialed in.

Remember that Dockside now has online reservation services available for your convenience, if you have trouble getting through on the phone or if it is after hours try the online service. It's available 24-7.

Successful Chinook Trip


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/09/2018

As you can see by the picture we had some success Chinook fishing yesterday. Several fish were landed with a good number of take downs. Not smoking hot for sure be it is enough to keep us interested. Rockfish today bit well, Ling Cod were slower. Crabbing still sucks. Halibut was tough today, not everyone got their fish but there was a lot of black cod by-catch.

It was a little rainy and windy today as squalls moved through, tomorrows forecast is somewhat better.

Quillback Rockfish Is On The Menu


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

05/30/2018

Yesterday the fishing was very good, Rockfish bit well as did the Lings. It was limit or near limit catches for everyone. Crabbing continues to be painfully slow, our "test" pots have not started to produce any consistent numbers of crab. On second thought they have, but they are consistently low! This will change and when it does we will get right back to crabbing. We want it to be worthwhile.

This weekend is an ODFW "Free Fishing" weekend, no license required. We have limited space available Saturday afternoon and some spots morning and afternoon Sunday.

This Young Lady Crushed It Today!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

05/28/2018

Dockside had all our boats out yesterday on a great ocean, the Rockfish bite was good with most everyone limiting, Ling Cod were much slower with only a few taken on each boat. The boat we had out on a Long leader trip did great (see the photo) with limits for all. Crabbing remains excruciatingly slow, which makes us crabby. The marine forecast for the week looks promising.

Today is Memorial Day and Dockside Charters is not running any fishing or whale watching trips today. We are participating in the Fleet of Flowers Ceremony both shoreside and the Procession to Sea of the Fleet. The Fleet of Flowers is very meaningful to us at Dockside and we encourage you to observe this ceremony, honoring those lost at sea. We hope you have a safe, enjoyable holiday.
