"Top TEN Reasons" you want to fish with Dockside
  1. Dockside will not overload it's boats.
    Remember your last charter experience when you were elbow to elbow with folks you don't know? You will be comfortable on Dockside's uncrowded boats and you will get to know your crew and have the assistance you may need in a timely manner.
  2. Experienced courteous ocean operators.
    Ever been on a charter when the crew was rude to their guests? Not at Dockside! Our skippers and their crew will always treat you with respect and courtesy. If you had a good time with us, tell your friends. If you didn't, tell us!
  3. Fishing is not "FUN" on a rough ocean.
    Dockside has a longtime reputation of not taking their guests out on rough, uncomfortable, or hazardous oceans. Though it is a disappointment when a trip is canceled your safety is of the utmost priority.
  4. Quality of catch:
    On your bottom fishing trip, Dockside targets ling cod and the larger fish which frequent the deeper water reefs. We are not satisfied with sending you home with a limit of "sea bass". We will make the effort to find areas where ling cod might be more frequent.
  5. Taking care of your catch
    Bleeding of all fish caught is a "MUST" to preserve the quality of your catch so they will have the best seafood flavor possible. All Dockside boats bleed all of their catch from bottom fish, salmon, halibut, etc.
  6. Credit card confirmation required on all advanced reservations.
    If your trip is canceled out on the water or cut short because of weather or other issues your trip will be refunded or pro-rated to both parties satisfaction. 48 hour cancellation policy.
  7. Quality gear
    All Dockside skippers take pride in their gear and will provide you with fishing tackle of a high quality and ease of operation. Most of the Dockside boats can provide you with either light or heavier tackle rods and reels for your use on bottom fishing trips. Guests on most occasions are free to use their own fishing tackle on Dockside boats.
  8. Easy access to the boats:
    At Dockside you can park right out in front of our office and walk right to your boat without any stairs to climb. All our vessels are easily boarded through doors. All our big boats are wheel chair accessible.
  9. A boat for your needs:
    Dockside has a wide range of boats for your needs with 6-pack vessels, and larger certified vessels. We will customize your groups trip to your needs. Specific boats can be requested. We will always make every effort to fulfill those requests, we cannot always guarantee them due to scheduling and availability of the boat in question.
  10. Dockside has built their business on repeat customers. We know there are other charter companies that will take you out so you may catch some fish. We also know the ONLY thing that truly sets us apart is the level of service we can provide. From the time you make your reservation, out on the boats, at the fillet tables and the vacuum packing facility our goal is to provide you the highest possible level of service and courtesy. We feel there is no higher compliment than clients who not only want to fish or cruise with us again but will recommend us to family and friends, or better yet bring them along!
