Fishing Report:

09/20/2016

Rough seas have kept us at home both Monday and Tuesday so we don't have much very current to report.

Salmon fishing for the wily Coho improved dramatically over the weekend. The Smokin Reel Limited early both days and our other boats brought in good catches too.

Bottom fishing was also good over the weekend and crabbing was stellar.

Tuna reports are sporadic, nothing there to be encouraged by and the weather forecast for the weekend offshore stinks. We are very much afraid that we are done with Tuna for the year. Sigh...

Tuna in Your Future?


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/13/2016

We have some space available for Tuna tomorrow. The weather looks agreeable at this time. Satellite imaging shows promise of fish in the 30 mile range. Wind/weather has made a dramatic turn in the past 48 hours.

Salmon fishing picked up a little bit yesterday, nowhere near limits for everyone yet though.

Bottom fishing and Crabbing is still holding up well.

Light Tackle Hook Up


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/11/2016

Salmon fishing proved to be very slow again today. Bottom fishing and crabbing on the other hand was quite good. Good numbers of Rockfish, a few Lings and loads of crab came in today.

In Tuna news, we have nothing positive to offer. Except that all the wind offshore positively blows. In all likelihood the fish are being pushed offshore again. Very discouraging considering how long we waited to have them come back in.

ODFW have posted another Halibut opener for All-Depth fishing on the 16th and 17th of September. Sadly we have no space available at this time.

Salmon fishing at Dockside was painfully slow today. Two boats this morning brought home only one fish each with a few missed opportunities. The afternoon didn't produce anything other than one fish on and gone.

Bottom fishing was quite good though with excellent catches both morning and afternoon. Crabbing keeps on going strong.

First Fish of the Day, a Good Way to Start


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/08/2016

Salmon fishing was moderately good today, but as you can see in the picture, Reely good for some.

Bottom fishing for Rockfish and Lings continues to be a good producer. and the crabbing is very good.

Inclement weather offshore forced our Tuna boat back in today and the forecast for the rest of the weekend in the offshore waters doesn't look good so we will be staying closer to home.

One Happy Fisherman


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/07/2016

The Samson is Salmon fishing today and is having good action, only halfway through the trip and they have half their fish. The skipper reports that the fish are an excellent grade, very nice size to them. (Space available for Thursday).

Bottom fishing yesterday was good as usual and crabbing was very good (mostly limits). Not a lot of Lings came in yesterday but there was a nice Halibut caught as an incidental catch.

We tried for Tuna yesterday but after getting about ten miles offshore the Southerly winds proved too much. The Tuna have been at about 35 miles out and the numbers vary from day to day. Sunday was about three per rod. Monday only one per rod. (No one got skunked though)! It is that time of the year when they can really go wild. Most have been taken on light tackle, putting the needle on the Fun-O-Meter right at the top. Space available for Thursday.

Bob Linscott Took This 35 pound Chinook Opening Day


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/03/2016

We had mixed results on the salmon opener, some boats did quite well while others not so much. Everyone had pretty good action, one of our afternoon trips produced 1 1/2 fish per rod.

Rockfish bit well and there were a few lings hitting the table. Crabbing was good again today, as many as 11 apiece.

As for the the last day of all depth Halibut for this week... It was like candy. An all day sucker that is. They did get all their fish but it was no cake walk.

Tuna trips headed out tomorrow we'll see what happens.

Fish On!


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

09/01/2016

Bottom fishing lit off again today (and yesterday as well), we had a good bite on Rockfish but the Lings remained pretty tight lipped. Crabbing is still producing good numbers.

News from the Tuna grounds has the fish moving in closer, we will be mounting expeditions Sunday and Monday and will keep you posted as to what happens.

Non-selective Coho season opens this Saturday.

Synchronized Whales (Depoe Bay in the Background)

Fishing Report:

08/30/2016

Bottom fishing was tough today. We did our part, the fishermen did theirs, the fish however were decidedly uncooperative. Crabbing is still holding up well.

Sadly we have no more space for Halibut fishermen.

Still nothing to report on Chinook Salmon, we had no one out for them today. Non-selective Coho season opens this Saturday.

Tuna is looking much more promising as soon as this weekend, the southerlies we have needed have started to blow the fish back in.
