Fishing Report:

12/05/2016

As the picture shows we have great conditions for the Coast Guard to train in, not so good for fishing and whale watching. The marine forecast through Saturday looks like, well not very good! Hang in there, we will get out before too long.

We are open for business again (as of the first of December) and have Gift Certificates available for fishing or whale watching. Perfect for that hard to shop for individual...

We have new rules from ODFW on rockfish going into effect in January, pretty much all changes for the better. They should be finalized in the next couple of days. We will keep you up to date.

Season Info:

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.


WE ARE NOW FEATURING ON-LINE RESERVATION REQUESTS FOR BOTH FISHING AND WHALE WATCHING.

We are experiencing some rather large swells today, definitely not a day for fishing or whale watching. We are having swells at the right angle/frequency and height that they are occasionally breaking from North Point all the way to South Point, a distance of about a mile.

Fish On! (Nothing Else to say)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/29/2016

Friday, October 28th we were out on the water. It was a great day, conditions were good and the fish were on the bite. We ended up with limits of Rockfish for everyone and near limits of Ling Cod. It was a fine way to end the month. Given the marine forecast for Sunday and Monday we are not at all likely to be getting out.

Dockside will be closed, as always, for the month of November. That gives us time to heal Skippers, Deckhands, Office Personnel, boats etc... December 1st we will be reopened and raring to go.

Well here it is almost Halloween, we are thankful to be able to get boats out today. Nothing going offshore as the wind continues to howl out there. Conditions are pretty darn good inshore, we will let you know if the fish are snapping.

Here's Looking at You Kid


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/24/2016

We were able togged boats out fishing Sunday. The weather window opened for us and fish were BITING. Limits of Rockfish were the order of the day and good numbers of Ling Cod hit the decks (well over one per rod average). The wind and waves held off and we got another great day in. This time of year good days on the water are at a premium and we enjoy every chance we get to get on the water.

The forecast is not looking very good for the rest of the week but it can change quickly (for good or bad) and we will keep on top of it.

Crabbing closed the 15th of October so we are done with those guys until December.

Room With a View


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/16/2016

As predicted we had a couple of pretty good storms blow through Depoe Bay. Fortunately they were not nearly as bad as what was forecast but were still bad enough to keep us in port. In fact the port (bar) has been closed to all traffic. There is a large swell forecast for a few days yet but as soon as things lay down we will be back on the water. Keep in touch here or give us a call. Keep in mind the marine forecast only extends five days out and is very changeable at this time of the year.

Deep Water Daze


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/13/2016

If we are to believe the weather guessers it will be a few days before we are able to get back offshore for any of these guys. Fact of the matter is it doesn't look like we will be going anywhere for fishing or whale watching until at least Tuesday or Wednesday. There is a 13 foot swell forecast for Monday. As far as the storm system that is forecast, it is here. Crabbing in the ocean will be closed October 15, so it looks like we are done with that until it reopens, hopefully mid December. Crabbing this season started off slow then built to a fever pitch and has been nothing short of spectacular.

We are settling into our winter routine, fishing between storms as we are able. As usual we will be closed the month of November. That allows us to heal the wounds accumulated through the season to skippers, deckhands, boats and shoreside personnel. We have had a great season to date and we look forward to finishing out the year on a positive note.

As for the next few days the storm watching will be awe inspiring. The biggest swells are forecast for late Saturday (30+ feet) so get yourself a room with a view and settle back to watching comfort.
