Yes Canary Rockfish Get This Big And Even Bigger!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/14/2017

Fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod continues to be very good. We can't guarantee limits but we work hard to make them happen for you. Crabbing continues to be good with anywhere from six to ten crab per person, sometimes even more (12/person is a limit).

All-Depth Halibut reopens Friday and Saturday (the 18th and 19th). We have a few spots available. Call soon for your reservation.

Chinook salmon is open at this time and the rewards for the efforts vary, some days we get some some days we don't. The action has been good as we sort through Coho to find Chinook.

The intel we get on Tuna is just plain depressing without anything to change the conditions in the forecast. We will keep you informed as we learn more. We are not making any new reservations until something changes for the better.

Season Info:

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

Starship Ling Cod


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/11/2017

The bite is back on for Rockfish and Ling are not doing too bad either. Everyone that put in the effort got limits of Rockfish and quite a few Ling. Ling Cod catches varied quite a bit from boat to boat. Crab are going strong.

Remember to bring a cooler to carry your catch home in.

Chinook salmon continue to be slow if not downright evasive. The non-selective Coho season opens September 2nd.

ODFW has informed us that there will be an All-Depth Halibut opener Aug. 18-19 (Friday-Saturday).

Hot Fishing Action on the Hot Pursuit


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

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.

Cabezon Dinner Coming Up


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:

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

Ling Cod Frenzy


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Season Info:


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
