"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"
Daily Fishing Report
Changes continue in a big way at Dockside Charters... We are very proud to announce the addition of the "Tacklebuster" to our fleet. With decades of experience the father and son team of Captains Juergen and Tyler Turner are highly respected in the charter industry, best of all fish fear them. The Tacklebuster is a 50 foot boat purpose built for chartering by the Delta Marine corporation. She is powered by twin late model 8.3 liter, 400 horsepower 6C series Cummins engines to get you to the fish quickly. Juergen and Tyler both work hard to maintain the boat at the highest level from stem to stern, including tackle for all fisheries. They fish for everything our corner of the Pacific has to offer. Halibut, Tuna, Salmon, Rockfish and Ling Cod. She is also a very popular vessel for whale watching excursions. The Tacklebuster is ready for your request at noon this Wednesday.
Now for the fishing report: The Triumph was on the Tuna grounds today and did quite well. Where yesterday the fish didn't hit the light tackle today was just the opposite, James had them boiling around the boat with multiple fish hook-ups on light tackle. Nothing is any more fun.
Salmon was slow early in the day except on the Smokin Reel. Captain David Peterson put on a clinic for the rest of us on the salmon grounds. He set the bar high. Afternoon Coho fishing started off with a bang then fizzled for a while. The fish continue to grow fast and are quite plump and tasty.
Rockfish bit well with limits for most everyone. A few Lings were taken but no where near Limits all-round. Crab numbers are also holding up well, even after culling out the soft ones.
There are still a few spaces for Tuna this weekend and the marine forecast is promising. There a few seats available for Salmon and Rockfish as well. Give us a call.
COHO Season is June 27th - August 9th (quota of 55,000 fish)

FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION SET 2015 GROUNDFISH RULE
2015 harvest specifications and season structures for recreational and commercial groundfish that 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.
