Lady With Ling!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

02/18/2018

The next series of winter storms is upon us. The wind is howling, the seas are raging, the sleet is sleeting and so the story goes. As a result fishing is out of the question for Sunday and Monday. The good news is Tuesday and Wednesday are looking good at this moment. Ling Cod continue to be on the bite, rockfish are doing well and crabbing is productive enough to be worthwhile. Call soon to make your reservation, 541-765-2545.

Still waiting to hear from ODFW on Halibut dates...

And Yet Another Day That Looks Like This


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

01/23/2018

Well here we are enjoying yet more inclimate weather. It is not as bad as it could have been though, we had the tsunami alert this morning at 2:00 AM, rather a rude awakening to say the least. Other than a little lost sleep it amounted to nothing. Thankfully there wasn't any damage in Alaska either.

Just as soon as the weather gives us a break we will be back to fishing. We have a decidedly poor forecast through Saturday. Give us a call to get the latest info. 541-765-2545

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.

Mother Nature has calmed down a bit, but she's not in a good mood yet.


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

01/21/2018

Yet another storm has moved in on us but not of the magnitude of last weeks weather event. The forecast looks like this will abate a little by Tuesday or Wednesday. Just as soon as things settle down we will be out fishing.

Keep in mind that the ocean is great to look at right now but stay safe, keep your distance and make sure you don't earn a "Darwin Award". We want you to survive to go fishing and whale watching with us, not be a statistic.

Captain David and his wife Kari are in Pasco (Tri-Cities) this weekend at the Sportsman Show. Stop by and see them if you are in the neighborhood.

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.

Notice The Bell Buoy


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

01/19/2018

Thankfully the ocean has settled down to a dull roar. Yesterday was a different matter altogether. The storm system brought some larger than average swells, some as big as 30 feet. The largest we have seen here in the past couple of decades is 42'. Sadly the swells, though impressive to see, took a human toll, one person lost their life, others were injured and there was significant property damage. We urge anyone visiting the coast to enjoy the spectacle of the ocean's fury from a safe distance. Respect her always.

In the picture you can see the bell buoy which typically is 1/2 mile from the harbor mouth. There is 13 feet of buoy that projects above the water so you can see from the picture, taken this morning, that it isn't flat calm yet. The force of the swells yesterday moved the buoy about 200 yards inshore and to the south. It is now nearly over the top of Flat Rock.

Needless to say we haven't been fishing for a day or two, but last time we were out it was good. Saturday was very good but Sunday required much more effort, a heavy current made fishing more difficult.
We will be getting trips out as soon as the ocean allows. Give us a call at 541-765-2545

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.

Long Leader fishing for selected Rockfish open outside 40 fathoms depth until January 1, 2018. No retention of Yellow Eye Rockfish or Ling Cod.

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.

01/01/2018

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 .
