"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"
Daily Fishing Report
Ling Cod Envy
We were out today on a very windy choppy ocean. It took the whole trip but all of our boats did very well on Rockfish, Lings were hard to come by, only three were taken by our fleet today. The dandy pictured came aboard the Tacklebuster a couple of days ago. Crabbing was excellent today.
We have trips scheduled for Monday (tomorrow) with space available. Check-in time is 6:30 AM.
Our six man Halibut boats were restricted by the Coast Guard due to bar conditions Friday and Saturday. The big boats did very well and were in fact back in port with all their fish early. (The last boat was back in at 2:30 in the afternoon).
Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption.
Coho seasons will have reduced quotas of 26,000 fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 25 through August 7, or until the quota is reached which ever comes first. The September non-selective season that will open on September 3 and continue through the earlier of September 30 or the quota 7,500 coho.
FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION GROUNDFISH RULES
2015 / 2016 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish include significant changes to the composition of the seven fish daily bag limit for marine fish.
For the first time since 2004, anglers will be able to RETAIN ONE CANARY ROCKFISH as part of the daily bag limit beginning MARCH 11 thanks to on-going efforts to rebuild the stock
However, due to a decrease in federally determined harvest guidelines, anglers will be LIMITED TO THREE BLUE ROCKFISH PER DAY AS PART OF THE SEVEN FISH MARINE BAG LIMIT AND THE RETENTION OF CHINA, COPPER AND QUILLBACK ROCKFISH WILL BE PROHIBITED. These regulations went into EFFECT JAN. 15, 2015.
