Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/29/2019

We have been taking hit after hit from the weather. The marine conditions and forecasts have been just plain stinky for a week now. It is frustrating for sure. We had to cancel again today. The bad news is today is the last day for Coho season, Coho season this year was underwhelming.

The good news is the forecast for tomorrow is quite good. We have boats headed out for 5, 8 and 12 hour trips. The only space we have available is for a 12 hour Tuna trip. This may well be the last Tuna trip of the season so get on board while you can. We have 4 spots left, make a reservation on line and be here in the morning.

Fortunately the Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing is holding up, although there are some species restrictions we are not in danger of exceeding the majority of our Rockfish quotas. The sport crabbing season will end October 15th.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Yet another day the marine conditions have kept us in port. Monday the forecast looks promising. A call yesterday to ODFW informed us that we are ate 62% of our Salmon quota. ODFW also informed us the season will not continue beyond this Sunday. Given the marine forecast and the closure of the season it looks like we are done with Coho for this year. So ends are rather unspectacular season for Coho.

Fortunately the Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing is holding up, although there are some species restrictions we are not in danger of exceeding the majority of our Rockfish quotas. The sport crabbing season will end October 15th.

Stormy seas have kept us home a couple of days now so we have no current report. It looks like we will get some fishing done tomorrow and we will let you know how it goes.

ODFW has opened up Coho fishing for every day through Sunday the 29th.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish is open September 3rd rather than October 1st. This is because our allowable mortality quotas for Yellow Eye Rockfish are in good shape for the year. Because of that Rockfish and Ling Cod may be retained along with Halibut in the all-depth fishery. Unfortunately Ling Cod may not be retained on the Long Leader fishery because of the 10 fish bag limit on the Long Leader.

We also got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available until the 27th of September providing there is quota remaining.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/20/2019

Bottom fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod was good today, at least for the Rockfish. They didn't go on the bite at first but we finished strong. Ling Cod were slow again but there were a few taken. Crabbing slowed today, the catch was disappointing averaging just 3 each.

Salmon fish was painful today. We didn't get skunked but the Coho were elusive to be sure with just a few being taken.

We had no boats out for Halibut today.

The boat we had out for Tuna today did well, over 5 fish per person and they went only about 25 miles from home. The weather forecast for midweek to the weekend coming up doesn't look promising for offshore activity however.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish will open September 3rd rather than October 1st. This is because our allowable mortality quotas for Yellow Eye Rockfish are in good shape for the year.

DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/15/2019

No fishing today (Sunday) due to a very vigorous ocean, wind, rain and general chaos...

Yesterday the Rockfish bit well with everyone getting limits if they kept their line in the water. A few Lings were caught but nowhere near limits. Crab were 4-6 per person.

Salmon fishing had varied results. One boat limited, another had one per rod while others had fewer. No boats were skunked but it wasn't a smoking hot bite either.

We didn't have a boat out for Long Leader Saturday so no report for that. Friday we did a Deep Water Ling trip that produced limits of big offshore Rockfish but only a handful of Lings. It was disappointing but it is still quite early for that.

The Tacklebuster had another great Tuna trip Saturday. Conditions were good and they put 101 fish on deck again. All in all it was a pronounced a great trip by all on board.

No Halibut boats out of Dockside this weekend.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish will open September 3rd rather than October 1st.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday are Coho Salmon days again and the fishing is far better than last week. We had one boat that limited for everyone including the Captain. The others got about one per rod average. The grade of fish we are seeing today are better than last week too.

Rockfish are still biting like mad while Ling Cod are slow. We are still getting a few Lings but mostly they are pouting and sulking and not biting well. Crabbing is good, ate per person today.

The Deep Water Ling Cod trip struggled yesterday. They worked hard for Lings but only a few bit. It is early in the season and the current and tide were working against them. They did get limits of great Rockfish but fell short on Ling.

Tuna was good yet again. Good numbers of fish hitting the fillet tables, caught mostly on light tackle.

No Halibut boats out of Dockside this weekend.

We had another day of excellent fishing for Rockfish, the Ling Cod were not as cooperative but we did bring home some nice ones. Rockfish limits hit the decks early leaving more time to concentrate on Lings. Crabbing was good with 4-6 per person.

No Coho until this Friday. It reopens Friday Saturday and Sunday.

Tuna trips have been product for several days now. Today was no exception. Outer Limits put 58 on the deck and the skipper reported that the majority of them came on light tackle. Light tackle raises the needle on the funometer to the peg.

And another stellar day for Long Leader fishing. Full blown limits of offshore mega Rockfish for everyone on board and a good day on the water.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish will open September 3rd rather than October 1st.

We had another great day of bottom fishing, good catches (mostly limits) of Rockfish and a decent catch of Ling Cod. Crabbing produced worthwhile catches, 3-6 per person.

Coho Salmon action picked up for the morning trips with just short of 1 fish per rod. The afternoon trip fell short of that but there were still some good quality fish taken.

Tuna action was hot. The conditions were good far, better than yesterday and 130 fish hit the fillet tables. Everyone went home with plenty of top grade tuna.

Rockfish and Ling Cod continue to be very strong. We are landing limits of Rockfish early in the trips leaving plenty of time for effort on Ling Cod. The Ling Cod bite is variable from day to day, not very many limits taken but there are some nice fish coming over the rail. Crabbing has picked up quite a bit, 7-10 per person.

Coho will open up again Friday Saturday and Sunday. We will see how it goes. There has been some of the selective season quota rolled into the non-selective season which will give us a more robust season for them.

Offshore conditions and a mechanical problem have slowed our effort on tuna but we have boats out today. We will let you know how it goes.

Coho salmon fishing was slow both Saturday and Sunday but the Dockside boats did catch fish. Though the opening weekend of the non-selective salmon season was unspectacular we had a great ocean to be out on. We are looking forward to next Friday, Saturday and Sunday when we get to give the Coho another try.

Rockfish and Ling Cod were very good over the weekend. Limits of Rockfish hit the decks early leaving plenty of time to focus on Lings. Crabbing produced better numbers this weekend. 5-7 per person.

Tuna fishing was good for one boat, producing 3 plus fish per person. The other boat we had scheduled had a mechanical problem and had to cancel before leaving the dock, so not so good for them. Very disappointing of course.

The Long Leader fishery is still awesome and producing limit catches. Not much more to say about that.

Starting The Day, Headed Fishing, Nearly Perfect

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/31/2019

Rockfish and Ling Cod were on a smokin hot bite today. Tacklebuster limited on Rockfish before 09:00 and came home with a good number of Ling Cod too. Crabbing was good with 4-6 per person.

Today was the opening of the non-selective Salmon season. Unfortunately the catch was much slower than what we were hoping for. We didn't get skunked but neither did we bring home limits for everyone. Certainly an unspectacular start to the season. Fortunately tomorrow is a brand new day.

Tuna fishermen endured a rough choppy day on the water but came home with fish as a reward. Counts were only two each, so it was one of the slower days we've had.

The Long Leader fishery produced big time yet again, although it was a bit slower than it has been. It took 2 and a half drifts to get full limits, a full 1/2 a drift longer than last time. The grade of fish was very good also.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish will open September 3rd rather than October 1st. This is because our allowable mortality quotas for Yellow Eye Rockfish are in good shape for the year. Because of that Rockfish and Ling Cod may be retained along with Halibut in the all-depth fishery. Unfortunately Ling Cod may not be retained on the Long Leader fishery because of the 10 fish bag limit on the Long Leader.

We also got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available until the 27th of September providing there is quota remaining.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/31/2019

We are enjoying some great marine weather today. Inshore the seas are glass flat and the winds are calm. Offshore is calling for southerly winds but nothing over 10 knots and very little swell.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing continues to be strong. We have hit our quotas of Cabezon, Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish for the year but we still have other species to fish for and continue to produce good catches. Crabbing is still producing 3-7 crab per person.

Today is the first day of the non-selective Salmon season. Any Salmon of legal length that you bring to the boat is yours to keep. Just heat-n-eat. Its open today and tomorrow then each Friday, Saturday and Sunday until we reach the quota of 9,000 fish. We will let you know how things go today.

Our Halibut fishermen did well yesterday although they didn't get the second fish for everyone. The ocean was rough in the morning but laid out during the day. The fish didn't really go on a hard bite till later in the trip and then they were plagued by sharks. There were some very nice fish lost to sharks (they don't seem to like the small ones much either). It was a long day but successful nonetheless.

We have Tuna fishermen out today too. We will keep you updated how that turns out today.

We also have a Long Leader boat out today. That remains an awesome fishery and we enjoy getting folks out on it.

We got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available.

The Rockfish bite a little slower today than it has been but the Ling Cod bit well. Good variety on fish even with the species restrictions. Crabbing varied from not very good to reasonable catches (1-5 per person).

No Coho fishing until this Saturday (August 31).

No Long Leader scheduled for today.

Although the conditions offshore were less than ideal (windy and very choppy) the Outer Limits prevailed and brought home 3 Tuna per person. Tough conditions and the bulk of the fish were caught on the troll, only one fish caught on light tackle.

We got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/26/2019

Bottom fishing has been very good. Limits of Rockfish have been hitting the fillet tables, Ling cod not so much although we are getting some nice ones, but no where near limits for everyone. There have been some in season changes on the rockfish that effect us. No more retention of Cabezon, China, Quillback or Copper Rockfish as we have hit the quota of those fishes for the year. There are other species that can be retained and it doesn't appear that we are in danger of hitting those quotas.

The selective Coho Salmon season closed yesterday with a whimper rather than a roar. We did get some nice fish but no where near limits and we strained a lot of water looking for those we did get. The Non-Selective season will start this Saturday and we are looking forward too that. We don't have to look only for hatchery fish, any fish you get to the boat of legal length is yours to heat-n-eat.

The Long Leader fishery continues to be an awesome fishery, the only thing that holds us back are the offshore conditions.

We continue to have good Tuna trips when the conditions let us out there. Counts of 3-7 per person represent good catches. We are being kept inshore for a few days early this week because of wind events offshore. We are hopeful that the weather guessers get it right for later in the week.

We got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Salmon fishing yesterday was slower in the morning than the afternoon. There was decent action in the morning but not very many that we could keep. The afternoon trip produced better than one fish per rod, not limits for everyone but good fishing for sure.

Rockfish and LingCod bit well on the inshore (5 hour) trips. Rockfish limits for most everyone, not quite as good on the Ling Cod. Crab catches were 4-6 per person. Thursday is the last day for the retention of Cabezon. ODFW believes we will have hit the quota by then.

We had a Long Leader trip offshore yesterday, they did well, got their limits in fact but they had to work at it a little more than usual.

Our tuna boat had good action on a fantastic ocean. They got two each, not as many as we like to see of course but that seemed to be about average for the fleet yesterday. Some did better, some worse.

The marine forecast for the nearshore water still looks good, in fact it has been nothing short of amazing for some time now. We do have some concerns about the forecast for the offshore fisheries for the next few days. We will be watching that closely.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing is still producing very good catches. Limits of Rockfish for the most part and good catches of Lings though not limits. Crabbing results are about 5 per person. No retention of Cabezon after this Thursday. (Yup we will have hit the quota!)

Long Leader fishing is still awesome, we have a trip out today, we will let you know how it goes.

We have a boat out again for tuna. Although they are not producing the numbers we would like to see they are a good grade of fish.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/11/2019

The Outer Limits has had another successful trip out for Tuna. The marine forecast called for a very mellow ocean offshore but it turned out to be quite choppy early on. The fish were on the bite and they were hitting on the troll and on light tackle stops. They ended up with three apiece of a good grade of fish. No boats out for Tuna today.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record the inshore fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod continues to produce very well. We are expecting limits of a good variety of Rockfish along with good numbers of Ling. Crabbing counts vary from 3-7 per person.

Coho Salmon has lit off with a vengeance this morning. The action on non-fin clipped fish is good and we have good numbers of hatchery fish going in the fish box. We did have a boat yesterday afternoon limit out. This appears to be a whole new run of fish, nice fat ones! Lots of action, just what we have been waiting for.

The Long Leader fishery continues to amaze. It is an awesome fishery that produces lots of big fish. Canaries, Widow Rockfish, Yellow Tail, Bocaccio and others. No retention of Ling on the Long Leader fishery, the limit of Rockfish is ten however.

The Rockfish fishing inshore just keeps on producing. Limit catches day after day. The Ling Cod catch has rebounded pretty well too. The Rockfish seem to bite morning and afternoon without any real difference. Crabbing is still producing 3-7 per person.

The Long Leader fishery continues to amaze. It is an awesome fishery that produces lots of big fish. Canaries, Widow Rockfish, Yellow Tail, Bocaccio and others.

Salmon continues to be slow, the amount of action varies from day to day and the number of hatchery fish we are able to keep has been disappointing lately. We are waiting for the fish that the biologists predicted.

We have a boat on the Tuna grounds today and the reports are pretty good. Sounds like they are putting good numbers of quality fish on board.

The marine conditions inshore are really nice. Very little swell and virtually no wind. The offshore doesn't seem to be as good as forecast as it is fairly choppy.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing did not disappoint today. Limits of Rockfish and good numbers of Lings on both morning and afternoon trips. Crabbing produced decent numbers of crab.

Coho fishing was slow today, short on action and retention. Fewer than one per rod. So it con tines to be slow.

The Long Leader fishing was Smoking hot again today. Limit catches of those big offshore Rockfish in nearly record time.

We have limited space for All-Depth Halibut on the 16th of August (Friday).

We did have a boat out for Tuna today. Results were a little disappointing at one and a half fish per/fisherman.

08/07/2019

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips have been producing not only limits of Rockfish but great variety too. Ling Cod have been snapping again for several days, very good catches have been the result. Crabbing is still variable with 3-7 per person.

Salmon fishing has been slow for a while. Catches have been about 3/4-1 fish per rod. Good action on non-hatchery fish that must be released so we get to practice bringing them to the boat. We have no idea when it will improve, but it will. It is always important to remember you will never catch a fish without hooks in the water.

Long Leader fishing continues to be an amazing fishery. Consistent limit catches of big fish. The upside of the fishery is the ten fish Rockfish limit, the downside is no retention of Ling Cod. Check for availability.

The tuna seem to have arrived. Dockside has had two successful trips out now, getting into fish at 30-35 miles. We have trips scheduled for the end of the week. Check with the office for availability.

The All-Depth Halibut has continued to produce well while the inshore fishery has not. We have limited space available for the all-depth coming up.

Fishing for Rockfish continues to produce limit catches for most people. The Ling Cod bite varies from day to day, some folks are getting them but not in great numbers. Warm water seems to put them off the bite. Crabbing continues to produce 3-7 per person per day.

Salmon fishing has been slow for a few days with just a few being caught each trip out. It will certainly improve but we have no way of knowing when. If you don't have a hook in the water there is no chance of catching one...

The Long Leader fishing remains stellar, there is nothing else to say.

Nothing to report on Halibut. We erred on the side of caution given the wind forecasts for the offshore waters. Disappointing to be sure but your safety and comfort are always our first concerns. We have No space available for Halibut for the rest of August.

Crabbing remains variable with three to eight per person. We will have to continue to cull out soft crab for some time to come.

Sunday and Monday we have had some wind that has put a wrinkle on the ocean. We have enjoyed fantastic marine conditions for a very long time and it looks like things will be good through Friday.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips remain very productive. We are seeing good variety on Rockfish and enough Ling Cod hitting the tables to keep us interested. Crabbing remains variable from 3-8 per person. Still culling soft ones.

We have had to abort a couple of Long Leader trips due to wind and chop offshore, so no news there.

Saturday we had the Triumph out for Tuna. We had received some good intel late Friday. They got into fish and put 48 on board at about 35 miles offshore. Unfortunately wind offshore kept us from going back Sunday and Monday.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips continue to produce well. Limits of Rockfish for most people and the Ling Cod bite has picked up a bit. Crabbing remains variable with 3-9 per person. Culling the soft crab out is still required due to the molt.

Salmon fishing picked up yesterday afternoon with good action and people bringing home one per rod.

The Long Leader fishery continues to be amazing. Last time out the boat limited in one drift. Everyone on board brought home a limit. Remember the limit for Long Leader is ten of the big offshore Rockfish. No Ling allowed but the ten fish limit is a good trade off. Plus the offshore Rockfish tend to be much larger than the inshore.

No new/good intel on Tuna yet. The satellite thermographic imaging looks good but the fish just haven't shown up yet. We will keep our finger on the pulse of things and keep you updated. The latest word heard was 2 sport boats caught 5 fish between them at 40+ miles.

The soft ones still need to be culled out as well.

Salmon fishing has been slow for several days now. We haven't been getting skunked but we are not getting limits either. There has been quite a lot of action, bringing fish to the boat but not very many keepers. That will change but we have no idea when.

The Long Leader fishery continues to be amazing. Yesterday the boat limited in one drift. Everyone on board brought home a limit. Remember the limit for Long Leader is ten of the big offshore Rockfish. No Ling allowed but the ten fish limit is a good trade off.

No new intel on Tuna yet. The satellite thermographic imaging looks good but the fish just haven't shown up yet. We will keep our finger on the pulse of things and keep you updated.

We still have a few spots available for the August 2nd All Depth Halibut.

The weather has been very kind to us for quite some time now and the marine forecast continues to be fair through next week though there will be some wind in the afternoons.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/22/2019

Yesterday the Rockfish bite was slower in the morning than usual but rebounded in the afternoon. There were some decent catches of Ling Cod but not limits. Crab counts have improved but we still have to cull out the soft ones. Early reports from the boats this morning indicate good action.

Coho fishing yesterday was good, over a fish per rod taken and lots of action on OFTMs (One Fin Too Many). There was a decent mix of Chinook in the catch as well. Reports from the boats this morning indicate a slow bite but they do have some in the boat.

We had a boat out on the long leader fishery yesterday and they absolutely crushed them. Great action on big offshore Canaries and Yellow Tail. They had over 50 fish in the boat on the first drift. This trip was a benchmark for the Hot Pursuit, logging it's 100th Long Leader trip in the past year and a half. This is significant when the impact on the nearshore Rockfish is considered. Not only have there been thousands of fish caught on Long Leader trips but considerable pressure has been taken off the nearshore Rockfish species that are under specific quotas. And it is just plain fun!

No good intel on Tuna yet but we are keeping track of what is going on.

The weather has been very kind to us for quite some time now and the marine forecast continues to be fair through the weekend.

The Salmon bite was slow again today. We had clatters of action but nothing steady and not very many fish hitting the fillet tables. That tends to be the nature of the beast, it was very good for a week and a half now we are experiencing a slowdown. It will change and tomorrow is a new day.

The Rockfish bite was slower today than ordinary also, although the Ling Cod bite improved a little. Strong current was a contributing factor.

We haven't had a boat out on the Long Leader fishery for a few days, we will keep you updated on that when it happens.

The Rockfish bite has remained consistency good and yesterday the Ling Cod bit well too. Ling have been off the bite for a while, it is good to see some hitting the fillet tables. Crabbing has remained in the 4-6 per person range. Grading them is still important as we are seeing some soft ones.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Docksides boats are out again today on a pretty great ocean. The bite on Rockfish continues strong with most folks getting limits. Ling Cod are not biting as well but there are still some nice ones hitting the fillet tables. Crabbing is still producing 4-6 per person but they must be graded to cull out the soft ones.

The Salmon bite has been very good. Yesterday produced limit catches both morning and afternoon. Roughly 15 percent of the catch has been Chinook, the rest being fin clipped Coho. The action has been nothing short of spectacular.

We have a boat doing the Long Leader fishery today, we will let you know how they do. It has been a remarkably good fishery and we expect it to continue.

Nothing going on for Halibut right now, the next available space we have is Aug2-3 (Friday, Saturday) for the All Depth fishery.

There is no good intel on Tuna yet but we will keep checking our sources... Our sources put them out over 120 miles.

Salmon were biting very well today, lots of Coho action and quite a few Chinook hitting the decks too. One of the skippers said he could not remember a day with more action, ever. Not everyone limited but most did and had a great time doing it.

Rockfish were definitely on the bite again today but the Ling Cod were off the bite again. Crab numbers were about 6 per person but we are culling soft crab.

We didn't have a boat out today for Long Leader but the last time out the absolutely crushed it. The next one is coming up Friday.

We don't have space available for Halibut until the Aug 2-3 All Depth opener. We are not booking inshore Halibut trips at this time due to the poor results inshore has had so far. Maybe later.

We have been blessed with day after day after day of fantastic marine conditions. For the next week the forecast is for continued great conditions.

Yesterday we had a trip out for the Long Leader fishery and they absolutely crushed it. Full limits of the big offshore Rockfish (10 each) in record time even though they were being harassed by sharks. We have trips scheduled for Thursday and Friday with space available.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips continue to produce well although the Lings have been off the bite. Early limits of Rockfish with good numbers of Cabezon, giving time to focus on putting Lings in the boat. Crabbing remains good, 4-6 per person but we do need to grade them as they are getting soft due to the molt. Another action packed bite.

The boats out for Salmon have been doing awesome too. Lots of action with both clipped and non-fin clipped fish and good numbers of Chinook mixed in as well. Five and six fish on at a time add to the fun.

There is no good intel on Tuna yet but we will keep checking our sources..

Our Halibut fishermen got it done today, limit catches for all plus Captain and crew. The grade of fish was very nice too. You couldn't have asked for better conditions either.

The boats fishing the reefs for Rockfish and Ling Cod did very well too. Ling Cod continue to be off the bite somewhat but the Rockfish couldn't wait to get in the boat. Crabbing today was 5-6 per person.

We had boats out doing the Long Leader fishing again today and the had an awesome day. The seas were great and the fish were on the bite. There were lots of sharks eating Rockfish off the gear, tearing the gear up and generally making a huge nuisance of themselves but the boats limited handily in spite of it.

Coho fishing was not as fast and furious as it has been but good numbers of fish were caught, not limits by any means. We will see what tomorrow brings.

The marine forecast is calling for light winds and small swells for the next week, a great start for our summer season. We still have not had any good intel on tuna but we will keep our finger on the pulse of the fishery. Remember, it is still quite early.

Happy Birthday USA! Happy 4th of July! We hope everyone has a fun, safe 4th.

For several days now the salmon fishing has been good. Some boats have been limiting early while others have been taking their time to get the job done. As you can see from the picture the grade of fish is good also. Afternoon trips have been producing very well too.

Rockfish continue to bite well although the Ling Cod take has slowed somewhat. Crabbing remains about the same with folks getting 4-6 per person. Not limits but still worthwhile.

The marine forecast is calling for light winds and small swells for the next week, a great start for our summer season. We still have not had any good intel on tuna but we will keep our finger on the pulse of the fishery. Remember, it is still quite early.

We have boats out again on the Long Leader fishery. The last time out, a few days ago, they were done in two drifts. That is about as hot as it gets. We will let you know how it goes today. No reports yet from them or the Halibut grounds.

The marine conditions are about as nice as anyone could ask for, definitely a great day to be on the water.

Salmon fishing was very good again today. Not limit catches for everyone but more than 1 per rod with some nice Chinook in the mix just for good measure. There was also great "practice fishing" bringing non-fin clipped fish to the boat for inspection.

One boat reported a limit of Rockfish an hour and a half after leaving the dock. The Ling Cod bite was not great today but there were a few taken. Lots of Cabezon hit the fillet tables (They can be retained as of July 1).

No long leader Boats out today, no Inshore Halibut effort today either.

Don't forget we have space for All-Depth Halibut on Thursday, July 4th, a great way to celebrate!

You can make reservation online on a space available basis even the day before the trip!

ODFW announced another weekend for All-Depth Halibut fishing. July 4th, 5th and 6th (as previously announced) and also July 18th, 19th and 20th. Call the office for available dates.


We have some space available for All Depth Halibut July 4th, 5th and 6th. Get on board soon.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it was another great day of fishing on the Dockside boats and you couldn't ask for a better ocean to be on.

The Salmon boats limited with relative ease and as you can see they got a nice grade of fish. Sunshine a flat ocean and biting fish, what else is there to say?

The Bottom fishing boats have limit catches as well. No word on how the crabbing produced.

Inshore Halibut was a bust today. Results have been slow since the fishery opened on June 1st.

After two days in a row of smoking hot salmon action things slowed down quite a bit today. As you can see from the picture it was worthwhile today none the less, you could have been lucky.

Rockfish were on the bite again today with limits being more the rule than the exception. Ling Cod were off the bite today but a few were taken. Crabbing is still producing worthwhile counts with 5-7 per person.

We had one boat out on the Long Leader fishery today that had an awesome day. They made three drifts and were done. It doesn't happen like that every day but it is a fishery that produces very well.

There is space available for the Long Leader fishing Sunday . Call to make a reservation or get "Hooked Up" online.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips did very well today as well with most boats limiting on Rockfish by 7:30 then spending the rest of the trip fishing fore Lings. The Lings didn't produce limits by any means but there were some quality fish taken. Crabbing produced 4-6 per person again, certainly worthwhile.

Since the opening of the Coho Salmon season last Saturday the result have been up and down. Saturday and Sunday had good action but poor retention. Monday the catch rates were up but down again Tuesday. The best thing I can say is a dry line catches no fish... The catches so far have been Coho in the 9-10 pound range and some nice Chinook up to 18 pounds.

Bottom fishing continues good, today there was a hot early bite on Rockfish with most boats limiteds by 8:00. Ling Cod were elusive for some boats while others came home with nearly one per rod.

Monday was a tough day fishing the Long Leader gear. The fish were showing but not biting, quite unusual and frustrating.

06/23/2019

Yesterday was the last day of All-Depth Halibut for June. It was a long day of fishing but it produced a good grade of fish. Although not quite a boat limit it was not for lack of trying. The next All-Depth days are July 4th, 5th and 6th.

Yesterday was also the opening day of the selective Coho Salmon season. It got off to a rather inauspicious start. Lots of action but very few fish that could be retained. They must be hatchery fin clipped fish over 16" Chinook need not be fin clipped but must be 24". But today is a new day and these fish tend to move through in waves.

The Rockfish and Ling Cod bite slowed a little but persistence paid off with good catches by the end of the day. Crabbing was good with 4-8 per person. We are seeing some soft ones due to molting so we are having to grade them.

The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good on most trips out. And there is limited space available Monday. Inshore Halibut has produced some fish now although it is hard to call it a smoking hot bite yet.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good on most trips out. Inshore Halibut has produced some fish now although it is hard to call it a smoking hot bite yet.

We do have space for the All-Depth Halibut this coming Thursday and Friday as well as the 4th, 5th and 6th of July. Weather for this week looks promising so give us a call and make arrangements to get on board.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/14/2019

Another good day for Rockfish, the Ling Cod bite slowed somewhat but there were some nice ones taken. The ocean was decent and we had a good time out there. All our trips the nearshore water today. Crabbing was okay with 3 to 6 per person.

This weekend is shaping up to be a good one. We have a good weather forecast and lots of people want to go fishing. We do have space for fishing Saturday afternoon as well as some space on Sunday. Give us a call or make a reservation on line.

The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good. Inshore Halibut has not yet produced yet although yesterday one of our boats had two fish on, one came within sight of the boat before coming unpinned. It was disappointing to be sure but that is how fishing goes sometimes.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

We just got news this afternoon from ODFW of back-up All-Depth Halibut dates. As we were hoping we did get June 20-21-22 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). In addition we are re getting July 4-5-6 (also Thursday, Friday, Saturday). We do have considerable space available for June 20-21 and July 4-5. Book on line or call about available space. The last time out everyone did very well, limits for all.

We had a boat out for the Long Leader fishery that absolutely crushed it yesterday, in spite of some epic tangles and a changing drift angle. They limited on big Rockfish (10 each)very quickly.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing was something of a mixed bag today. Some boats did very well while others struggled somewhat. By the end of the day all came home with respectable catches. Crabbing ranged from 4-6 per/person.


The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good. Inshore Halibut has not yet produced yet although today one of our boats had two fish on, one came within sight of the boat before coming unpinned. It was disappointing to be sure but that is how fishing goes sometimes.

All of the boats we had out today did very well. The bite was good on Ling Cod and Rockfish in the nearshore fishery.

We had a boat out for the Long Leader fishery that absolutely crushed it today, in spite of some epic tangles and a changing drift angle. They limited on big Rockfish (10 each)very quickly. Crabbing for all the boats was decent, 4-5 per person.

We had boats out Saturday (the 8th) for the All-Depth Halibut, all got there limit. This is the last of the early season days but given the weather and initial reports of the remaining quota we are expecting to get back-up dates of June 20, 21, 22 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) at least. We will know about the back-up dates for sure the afternoon of the 14th. In anticipation we are taking reservations for those days. Keep your fingers crossed.

The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good. The Hot Pursuit spanked em hard Friday and was home early with limits for all on board and then duplicated the trip today.

So far the inshore Halibut trips we have taken have not produced.

We have boats out today fishing the nearshore. It is choppy but the fish are biting well. We have space for fishermen this week, plenty of space tomorrow and a Long Leader trip scheduled for Wednesday. The marine forecast is looking favorable with some wind but not much swell. Wednesday looks good for the scheduled Long Leader too.

We had boats out Saturday for the All-Depth Halibut, all got there limit. This is the last of the early season days but given the weather and initial reports of the remaining quota we are expecting to get back-up dates of June 20, 21, 22 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) at least. We will know about the back-up dates for sure the afternoon of the 14th. In anticipation we are taking reservations for those days. Keep your fingers crossed.

The Long Leader trips continue to be impressively good (can you say Smokin Hot!) and we have space available Wednesday. The Hot Pursuit spanked em hard Friday and was home early with limits for all on board.

5 hour trips for rockfish and Ling Cod also continue to be strong producers. For the most part limits of Rockfish are the rule with very good catches of Ling Cod although not always limits of them. Crabbing is producing better now with 4-8 per person.

So far the inshore Halibut trips we have taken have not produced.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

Fishing today was waaay good. Limits of Rockfish and near limits of Ling Cod. Crab numbers have improved, not nearly limits yet but well worthwhile. We still have a few seats left for Halibut Thursday and Friday. Get your reservation made PDQ. The marine forecast looks the best of the Halibut season so far. No results on the inshore Halibut fishery yet.

The weather for the All-Depth Halibut Thursday, Friday and Saturday is looking good, there are still a few spots available. The All-Depth is a very productive fishery.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. All depth Halibut only, No Inshore 8 hour Halibut trips available until June.

Fishing today was slow at first but when it lit off the bite was lights out. Limits of Rockfish for all and the Ling Cod were back on the bite, near limits for everyone. There was a great variety of Rockfish today with Black, Blue, Deacon, Canaries and Quillbacks with a few Yellow Tail thrown in for good measure. Crab catches improved for most boats, one boat got 9 per person with others doing somewhat less than that. No results on the inshore Halibut fishery today.

Memorial Day Fleet of Flowers


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/27/2019

Today is Memorial Day and it is a tradition in Depoe Bay to commemorate the day with the annual Fleet Of Flowers. There is a shore side ceremony in the harbor starting at 11:00 am followed by the procession to sea by the Depoe Bay Fleet. Memorial Day is meaningful to us by recognizing those that have given their lives in service to others. Dockside Charters observes Memorial Day each year by participating in the ceremonies and then spending the day with our families. May each of you have a blessed and meaningful Memorial Day.

After several days of really crummy weather the Dockside Fleet got underway yesterday (Sunday). Fishing was excellent for the Rockfish in fact some of the action was smokin hot. The Ling Cod bite was painfully slow., we haven't caught them all for certain but the conditions just aren't to their liking at the moment. Everyday is a new day! Crabbing was moderately good.

The forecast and the sea state kept us off the Halibut grounds last week. The good news is at last report there is 81% of the quota remaining and will will be having back-up days assigned for late June and July.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. All depth only, No Inshore 8 hour Halibut trips available until June.

We have our fleet out fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod today in the nearshore. The forecast is sketchy so we hope to get out, get the fish and come on home. The nearshore fishery continues to produce good numbers of fish. The Deep Water Ling Cod fishery has closed until October but don't forget about the Long Leader fishery. The Long Leader fishery is open year round and is proving to be productive and popular. The limit is ten big offshore Rockfish, but no retention of Lings.

We have been blown out both Thursday and Friday on Halibut fishing so not much to report there. Last week (opening week) was good and ODFW reports indicate there were 30,000 pounds taken. That leaves 141,000 pounds remaining in the Central Coast area.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/11/2019

The seas have continued to be calm and the fish bit well today. The boats produced limits of Rockfish and decent numbers of Lings but not limits ( some boats had 1 per rod others a few less). It was truly a great day to be on the water. Crabbing was worth the effort today for sure. The catch varied but was 4-6 per person.

Our one boat we had out for Halibut today limited on a good grade of fish. There was a good bite early but it died off, then it took a long time to get the remaining fish needed. They did prevail though.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there. For those that like to fish we have a few spots for the morning. Check-in is 05:30

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/10/2019

No word yet from todays Halibut boats but the inshore boats fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod did excellent. We say limits of Rockfish and lots of Lings hitting the fillet tables, and great grade of Ling and lots of variety on the Rockfish. Crabbing produced 3-6 per person.

As soon as we hear from the Halibut boats we will let you know how that went.

We are looking forward to a busy weekend but we do have just a few spots yet for Saturday (even an afternoon trip) and if you want to take Mom fishing for Mothers Day we have space on Sunday.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/09/2019

Conditions offshore for the first day of Halibut were not as good as the forecast. It started out windy and choppy but fortunately mellowed out as the day went on. The bite was slow to get to get started too as the boats were fighting a strong current but finally the bite lit off and they ended strong. The grade of fish was good too, most of them were forty inches and up. The forecast for tomorrow is good, we hope they bite early.

We only had one boat fishing inshore today but they did very well. Fifteen fishermen limited on Rockfish and brought twenty two Ling Cod too. Crabbing produced a half dozen each.

We are looking forward to a busy weekend but we do have just a few spots yet for Saturday and if you want to take Mom fishing for Mothers Day we have space on Sunday.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

The wind blew briskly today but in spite of that and the chop it generated we got out fishing today. The reward for putting up with the wind was an excellent Ling Cod bite. Most of the boats limited early on Lings and then spent the remaining time putting limits of Rockfish in the boats. It was a good, productive day. Crabbing was about the same as it has been, three or four per person.

Don't forget to make your reservations to take Mom fishing on Mothers Day. What better way to honor Moms everywhere?

It was rough but the Hot Pursuit prevailed and brought home an excellent catch. Just one Ling short of a limit and limits of big Rockfish for all. Remember that the Long Leader fishery is open year round and that has a 10 Rockfish limit.

We had fishermen out yesterday on the nearshore waters. There wasn't much swell but the wind was brisk and continued to build all morning. The Rockfish bite was good even though they have been feeding heavily on crab larva. Due to a hard running current and being pushed by the wind the Ling Cod take was poor. The forecast looks good through Saturday at least.

We have plenty of space available this Friday. (not so much on Saturday tho) so give us a call 541-765-2545 or make a reservation on line at www.docksidedepoebay.com

Reports from the boats this morning: Very good Rockfish bite inshore and offshore. Slower on the Ling Cod inshore but a few are being caught, the offshore is doing better and seems to be picking up with the tide. The boats are still fishing as of this report so there will be more Lints hitting the decks yet. The crab pots are still soaking so no word on them.

We have plenty of space available this week (not so much on Saturday tho) so give us a call 541-765-2545 or make a reservation on line at www.docksidedepoebay.com (Online reservations must be made at least 24 hour prior to departure).

The boats out fishing yesterday had another great day on the water. Conditions were decent and the fish bit well. The boats inshore got all the Rockfish they needed but had to work to get Ling Cod. At the end of the day they wound up with about 1.5 Ling/person.

We had one boat on a Long Leader trip that brought in a great catch of Canaries, a great grade of Yellow Tail plus some Widow Rockfish for good measure and they finished early. All in all a great day on the water.

The inshore fishing was quite good today, limits of Rockfish for most fishermen. The Ling Cod were hard to come by for yet another day but as you can see from the photo there were some nice ones taken.

The boats that were doing the deep water fishery today were unsuccessful due to a rip-snorting current and uncooperative fish. After giving it a good effort they moved inshore and finished off their trips with good catches of Rockfish and a few Lings.

Although the inshore Halibut season remains open until October 31st, the results for several weeks now have been so dismal we will Not take any more inshore Halibut trips out. We don't feel you have a reasonable opportunity to put one in the boat.

We have resigned ourselves to Tuna being over for the year, the number and grade of the fish have been disappointing and the weather can get very sketchy this time of year. We are already looking forward to a better season next year.

The Long Leader fishery continues to produce well when the weather allows, the bag limit for the LL remains ten Rockfish and NO Ling Cod.

Yes We Are Still Catching Lings

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/28/2018

We had a couple of days of slow fishing for ground fish and one day when the crabbing went from great to horrible, then right back to pretty darn good the following day. We suspect a strong cold upwelling impacted both the fish and the crab. The upwellings are good in the long term, they bring loads of nutrients up from deep water and the cycle of life continues.

Well the 2018 Coho season closed with a whimper. To say it was a disappointment would be an understatement. None of our boats got skunked but there were darned few fish caught.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/19/2018

Very good news from ODFW yesterday afternoon. They had two different announcements: the Rockfish bag limit has been raised back up to five fish per person per day effective this morning Wednesday, September 19th, secondly the Deep Water Ling Cod fishery will open October 1st. It sure is nice to get an in season adjustment raising the limit. The Deep Water Ling fishery was in question for a while due to concerns about exceeding by-catch limits on Yellow Eye Rockfish.

Bottom fishing remains good with diverse catches coming on board with a good number of Lings climbing onto the fillet tables. We had a couple days where the crab catch was off but that seems to have recovered well. Still worth doing.

IMPORTANT SALMON NEWS:

Earlier today we posted information about the Non-Selective Salmon season having been allotted additional quota that we believed would get us through the September fishery. Now we have received word via e-mail that as of 11:59 September 21st NON-SELECTIVE SALMON WILL BE CLOSED. At this time we have some space available for Friday. If you have a Saturday reservation call us. Pronto.

All Depth Halibut is closed for the year. Nearshore Halibut remains open but has not been very productive for several weeks now.

We have a boat out for Tuna today (Wednesday) we are of course optimistic that it will be successful, we will keep you posted...

Although Dockside has not had a boat out on the Tuna Grounds we have reliable intel that puts them well inside our range (approximately 20 miles), they can move quickly and they did. We are trying to put trips together to get after these animated torpedoes. Call the office to get on board. 541-765-2545

Salmon fishing was slow again today with only a few fish hitting the decks. Even though it is slow the upside of salmon is they are a really nice grade of fish and no one is making much impact on the quota. That leaves little question there will be more opportunity for the 14th and 15th (Friday and Saturday). Remember, the only thing guaranteed about fishing is that a dry line will catch no fish.

Bottom fishing did well today with respectable catches of Rockfish and Ling Cod. Crabbing continues to produce well.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/06/2018

Bottom fishing hit the skids for a couple of day this week, it was very tough fishing. Yesterday they went back on the bite. Most fishermen limited on Rockfish and came very close on Lings. Crabbing slowed down too, it has been an odd crab season to be sure.

The Long Leader fishery was tough early this week too. Tides, currents, temps? All could be factors.

The Fin-Clipped Salmon season went out with a whimper, we are optimistic that the Non-Selective season will be good. It opens tomorrow (Friday) and we do have a little space available Friday.

Tuna continue to be elusive, staying outside our range. At this time we don't have any reliable intel from other areas either.

We continue to have good marine conditions for the Labor Day weekend. Calm seas, light breezes and comfortable temps.

Bottom fishing is doing well, our boats are producing good catches of Rockfish and Ling Cod. We are not seeing limits of Lings for everyone but good numbers are coming over the railings. Crabbing varies quite a bit from day to day but overall is still very much worth doing.

Salmon fishing has been slow for a few days now. We are waiting for the next wave of fish to come through and that can happen any time. We are still seeing high numbers of Non-Fin Clipped fish. Only fin clipped Coho may be retained at this time (and any Chinook over 24 inches).

There were some sport boats out after Tuna Thursday and Friday. There were some good catches reported, others not as good but still having to go distances that put them outside our range. The best Tuna reports continue to be out of the Columbia River.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/31/2018

We are enjoying a very calm ocean today, hardly any swell and gentle breezes, fog that comes and goes but generally good visibility.

The Rockfish are biting well (see picture)and there are a few Lings coming aboard, it is still early in the day we will see how it ends up. Crabbing continues to be well worthwhile.

Salmon boats are reporting a slow bite so far today. Nothing exciting to report so far. We are looking forward to the Non-Selective Coho season, (September 7th and 8th) those fish better be nervous.

No news yet from the All-Depth Halibut boats yet today. We do have 2 spots available on the Triumph Saturday, call soon to get them.

No good news from the Tuna grounds yet. Boats out yesterday reported good conditions at 65 miles (water temps, color, etc) further out they encounter birds, bait and fish. The high boat I heard of had 12 fish, others had scores of one to five and some with zero. The high boat reported seeing lots of fish in the water zooming back and forth but vastly more bait than tuna. Only one fish taken trolling the others came jigging iron and throwing swim baits. There were also reports of decent fishing out of the Columbia River.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. According to ODFW modeling this should keep us fishing through the year instead of facing another early closure like last year. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. July first we are also allowed to retain one Cabezon per person, that is included in the daily bag limit of four Rockfish. Limits remain ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

Rockin It On The Long Leader Fishery


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/26/2018

Bottom fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod continues to produce well, of course it changes a bit day to day but remains strong overall. Reports from the fishing hole today indicate a good rockfish bite and decent numbers of Ling coming over the rails. Crabbing for some of the boats has dropped off somewhat while others are continuing to produce. Either way it is still worthwhile.

The Long Leader fishery produce limit catches yesterday. Great quality fish, Canaries, Yellow Tail and some Widows.

Yesterday the Salmon action dropped way off, not many fish on the bite and only a few keepers coming in. Today the action is back on with many fish striking and coming to the boats to have their ID checked, no word yet on the number of keepers.

Recent intel on Tuna this weekend indicated a few boats making the long trip out for one or two fish per boat or even zeros. Very discouraging to be sure. I have reliable intel that there are fish to be had out of Westport, reports heard of the Columbia River are contradictory.

All-depth Halibut reopens this Friday and Saturday, (8-31-18, 9-1-18). We do have space available Friday the 31st.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st.

08/23/2018

Bottom Fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod continues to produce well. Most everyone got their limit of Rockfish and there were quite a few Lings hitting the fillet tables too. Crabbing continues to be well worth the effort.

The Long Leader fishing produced a bonanza again today, big Rockfish and lots of them. (A reminder that No Lings are allowed on the Long Leader trips). We also team up on the gear to help minimize tangles.

Coho Salmon continues to be very active with many Non-Fin Clipped fish coming to the boats, we did have a good number of "keepers" today and some of them were very nice Chinook.

The Tuna remain elusive as they remain offshore and out of range. Recent reports we get from the commercial fleet indicate large fish in good numbers, but well beyond the range of our fleet (in the 120-140 miles range). We will keep watching them and as soon as they move in we will let you know. We have heard that there are some fish being taken on boats from Illwaco, Wa. and some from Westport, Wa. Looks like they may be out of range for at least a week. (An educated guess, but a guess none the less).

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/20/2018

We had great Salmon action over the weekend. The bite was continuous, lots and lots of fish coming to the boats, retention of fin clipped fish was up to one per rod. We are still sorting through the non-fin clipped fish at a rate of 4-5 to one.

News from the Bottom Fishing boats today report great results in the deeper water, a wide variety of fish as well. The Ling Cod bite is slower but about 1/2 the folks are coming home with Lings. Crabbing continues to produce good numbers of crab. Not limits but certainly enough to make it worthwhile. Sadly, no more retention of Cabezon, ODFW reports that we have hit the quota for this year. Remarkable that it only lasted about seven weeks.

The Tuna remain elusive as the remain offshore and out of range. Reports we get from the commercial fleet indicate large fish in good numbers, but well beyond the range of our fleet. We will keep watching them and as soon as they move in we will let you know. We got word of a Charter Boat on a 36 hour trip that produced Zero fish. That is definitely not what we wanted to hear.

Ethan Is Putting The Ultra In Ultralight

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/12/2018

Ethan landed a very nice Cabezon after a long battle. (See the pic) The Ling Cod and Rockfish are holding up reel well for the inshore fishery. Limits of Rockfish for the most part along with good numbers of Lings. Crabbing has picked up quite well. We are not getting limits yet but enough crab are coming on board to make it worthwhile. It is important to sort out the soft shelled ones though.

The Long Leader fishery has been slowed down by an invasion of Sharks and Hake (Pacific Whiting). That makes it harder to get the target species when your gear is being ravaged by Shark and Hake...

Salmon fishing continues to have good action with many fish being brought to the boats for inspection. We are still seeing the majority of fish with adipose fins so the number of keepers is not high. We are getting a good percentage of Chinook however, who can't look that? The Coho that we are able to retain are quite large for this early in the season with some in the 10-12 pound range.

Tuna fishing is still very dissapointing. All reports put the fish well outside our range, 60-70+ miles. The only good intel we get is off the mouth of the Columbia River, about 40 miles. Sadly that is a very long way from us.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/09/2018

Bottom fishing for Ling Cod and Rockfish is holding up well through the season, of course from one day to the next it is fishing but we have been doing very well. Crabbing has picked up so we will be throwing pots again. It is still important to grade out the soft crab (recently molted) of course.

The Long Leader fishery continues to produce well, not every trip has full limits but it is a fishery that all seem to enjoy.

We have enjoyed some wild Salmon action. Yesterday it was difficult to keep the gear in the water because of the shear volume of fish biting. We had to put the majority of the Coho back because they were not hatchery fish but decent numbers were retained (close to one per rod). The action was wild and everyone had a great time. ODFW numbers indicate that we have a long way to go to reach the quota so maybe we will get the scheduled season in.

As for Tuna we continue to watch all the indicators we can, satellite imaging, weather, reports from the commercial and sport fleets. Our intel still puts the bulk of the fish out of range (70-80 miles). We are studying everything we can, and those fish can move fast.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. According to ODFW modeling this should keep us fishing through the year instead of facing another early closure like last year. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. July first we are also allowed to retain one Cabezon per person, that is included in the daily bag limit of four Rockfish. Limits remain ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/05/2018

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing went very well today, very good catches in the morning but folks are having to work at it a bit this afternoon. Crabbing is still very poor.

Coho fishing picked up yesterday with about one fish per rod being kept and lots of action, at least double and more of the fish kept. There were some really nice Chinook taken too.

The Halibut fishing went well for the all-depth opener, no idea yet if there will be any more quota for the all-depth fishery for later in the month.

Saturday the boat we had out for Tuna did well, though he went to the ends of the earth for the fish. Today we had two boats out. They went 50 miles and got bupkis. Very disappointing to be sure. Water temps are good, chlorophyl levels look good but the fish are beyond our reach at this time.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st.

08/03/2018

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing continues good as evidenced by the picture. Morning and afternoon trips are doing well but remember that on any given day it is, fishing. Crabbing still stinks and they are very soft too.

The Long Leader fishery continues to rock it, yesterday's trip limited everyone in two drifts. Definitely a smoking hot bite. Good variety too, Canaries, Yellow Tail, some huge Boccacio and one odd ball we haven't been able to identify yet.

Coho Salmon continues to be slow on retention, but we are bringing many, many fish to the boats to "check their ID". Really good action most trips out, just not many fish to keep. (Coho must be fin clipped hatchery fish to be retained).

Halibut boats are out today but we have no report yet. More to come...

Tuna intel still puts the fish a long way from Depoe Bay, we have a boat out today, we will see how they end up.

Fishing for Rockfish and Lings continues good. Yesterday afternoon's trips produced a Rockfish frenzy, no where near limits of Ling but crazy action to finish the day.

The Long Leader fishery continues to produce, there is an occasional day when it slips of course but it is fishing.

Coho fishing action picked up today with over one fish per rod being retained and nearly non stop action on the rods. Many fisher brought to the boat, over three times as many as were kept.

The Tuna remain a good bit out of range from Depoe Bay. Our most recent attempt did not produce. All the conditions were good but the fish didn't rise for us.

Bottom fishing continues to hold up well. Good numbers of Lings and great catches of Rockfish. Test pots we put out for crab produced bupkis, so it is still stinking...

The Long Leader fishery was very good to the Hot Pursuit while another boat had to work hard for what they got, that's fishing in a nutshell.

Coho trips produced mixed results, quite a bit of action with lots of fish hooked up, on and gone or released at the boat.

We have received some good Tuna intel and have boats headed out tomorrow. There might even be an available seat. Give the office a call.

It was tougher on the Long Leader grounds too. The conditions were great offshore, calm and sunny, the fish just didn't want to do their part like we are used to.

Coho action was pretty good but there were not many keepers that came to the boat. Lots of fish to practice with.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/24/2018

Ling Cod are biting well, the water temp is down due to NW winds, Lings like cooler water, that tends to slow down the Rockfish bite though. We have been coming home with respectable catches non the less.

Coho fishing was good today also. One boat brought home 11 fish for twelve fishermen, the action was outstanding though. That boat reported somewhere between 40-50 fish brought to the boat to sort through. Other boats reported similar results. Really good action for sure.

Conditions offshore today were too tough for the Long Leader fishery again, so we had to fall back to conventional bottom fishing.

Tuna continue to hang offshore out of range (and conditions out there were not fishable). We will continue to watch the weather and the satellite imaging for the next chance to get out there and get on fish. Tuna trips are cancelled through Saturday.

This group got some nice inshore fatties for their efforts. Not limits but enough to get the juices flowing. The boats on the bottom fish grounds today did very well, limits of Rockfish but not so many Lings. The seas were choppy this morning but mellowed out as the day went on.

We had one boat Long Leader fishing today, they did very well, most people limited on a great grade of Canaries and Yellow Tail Rockfish.

Salmon fishing was slow today, Slowho Coho. The action was decent but fin clipped fish were hard to come by. Not great by any means but for the folks that are really wanting salmon we have to keep trying.

The fish pictured happened yesterday. Today we got a good start but had to get off the water in less than three hours as conditions deteriorated faster than forecast. Because of the conditions and forecast we made the decision to pull the plug on Thursday's fishing trips. Hopefully the forecast moderates for Friday.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. According to ODFW modeling this should keep us fishing through the year instead of facing another early closure like last year. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. July first we are also allowed to retain one Cabezon per person, that is included in the daily bag limit of four Rockfish. Limits remain ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

73 Pound Halibut From The Nearshore Fishery Today

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/10/2018

There was a really nice Halibut taken nearshore, but just one. They were able to finish off the trip with some excellent Rockfish too.

Rockfish were back on the bite in the nearshore fishery, Ling Cod were slow again, a few were taken but not limits by any means. The Long Leader fishery produced limit catches yet again. Big Canaries and Yellow Tail.

We had very good salmon action today. One boat kept over one fish per rod while another did about one per rod but there were many non-hatchery fish brought to the boats and released. There were some great Chinook in the mix too.

The boat we had out on the tuna grounds was not able to produce. The conditions looked good, good temp, good water color, birds, bait, sharks and Hump Back Whales, but no Tuna. They just could not get them to rise. We will keep watching the indicators for the next opportunity.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

Fishing this morning was good, no limits of salmon were taken but there was good action. Some very nice Chinook and a few Coho came on board. There were many releases of non-hatchery Coho or as we call them, OFTMs (One Fin Too Many). The Rockfish went on a serious bite, everyone limited on Rockfish, but the Lings did not cooperate.

The Long Leader boats had to work at it but came home with limits of those big offshore Rockfish.

We have had credible reports of Tuna in range of Depoe Bay. We are planning a trip for this coming Tuesday. Call us to make your reservation. Soon.

We cancelled the Friday Halibut trips due to the offshore forecast, it seems we made the correct call on that. We will see how it goes this Saturday.

The Ling Cod were not on the bite today, Rockfish on the other had were ravenous. One of our boats had a limit of Rockfish by 9:00 and the other boats were done shortly after that. We put in a great deal of effort on Lings but they just didn't cooperate. Crabbing is still SLOW, not worthwhile.

The Salmon bite was slow today but there were some taken.

ODFW made a news release that the bag limit of Rockfish in the nearshore fishery is being reduced to 4 rather than 5 as of July 1st. It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish.

We have boats out today fishing for Salmon, Rockfish and Ling and one boat hunting the fabled inshore Halibut. We could hardly have a better day for fishing, there is even an overcast.

The Coho Salmon have proved to be evasive yet another day, but as you can see we are getting some very nice Chinook instead. Salmon fishing is slow all in all but the reward for those that get fish is substantial. What we know for certain about fishing is that a dry line catches no fish!

The inshore Rockfish and Ling Cod trips did well, lots of Ling hit the fillet tables and most people limited on Rockfish too.

The Long Leader fishery produced well again today. The boats didn't completetly limit but everyone came home with 7 to 10 fish, a great day on the water.

Last weeks All-Depth Halibut fishing was very productive. Before the last opener the remaining quota was at about 52%. We haven't heard yet if there will be enough left for the back-up days in July (July 5,6,7). As soon as we hear we will let you know. Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing has been a little tough for a few days, not everyone has limited but those who put in the effort have been taking home good baskets of fish. Crabbing remains dismal, when it changes we will let you know.

It is disappointing but as we have heard four fish is better than no fish. The Ling Cod limit remains 2 per person, over 22 inches long. It remains ten Rockfish for the Long Leader fishery.

This Saturday is the opening of the Coho fishery. The limit is two hatchery Coho per angler or two Chinook. Legal length is 16" and 24" respectively. You can mix or match Coho and Chinook for a total of two Salmon.

The marine forecast through Tuesday looks favorable so lets go fishing.

06/09/2018

As you can see by the picture we had some success Chinook fishing yesterday. Several fish were landed with a good number of take downs. Not smoking hot for sure be it is enough to keep us interested. Rockfish today bit well, Ling Cod were slower. Crabbing still sucks. Halibut was tough today, not everyone got their fish but there was a lot of black cod by-catch.

It was a little rainy and windy today as squalls moved through, tomorrows forecast is somewhat better.

Yesterday the fishing was very good, Rockfish bit well as did the Lings. It was limit or near limit catches for everyone. Crabbing continues to be painfully slow, our "test" pots have not started to produce any consistent numbers of crab. On second thought they have, but they are consistently low! This will change and when it does we will get right back to crabbing. We want it to be worthwhile.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/28/2018

Dockside had all our boats out yesterday on a great ocean, the Rockfish bite was good with most everyone limiting, Ling Cod were much slower with only a few taken on each boat. The boat we had out on a Long leader trip did great (see the photo) with limits for all. Crabbing remains excruciatingly slow, which makes us crabby. The marine forecast for the week looks promising.

Today is Memorial Day and Dockside Charters is not running any fishing or whale watching trips today. We are participating in the Fleet of Flowers Ceremony both shoreside and the Procession to Sea of the Fleet. The Fleet of Flowers is very meaningful to us at Dockside and we encourage you to observe this ceremony, honoring those lost at sea. We hope you have a safe, enjoyable holiday.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/25/2018

The Ling Cod bite was not hot today by any means but the fish taken were quality fish. Rockfish bit well with good numbers of fish being taken throughout the fleet. We do have some spots available for afternoon trips Saturday.

We did not run our scheduled Halibut trips or the Long Leader due to Gale force winds we had offshore, it was plenty windy inshore but we were able get 5 hour trips done. We do have 4 spots available for Halibut tomorrow (Saturday) be here at 05:30 to check in.

Cabbing continues to be painfully slow, we had some test pots out today, baited with one of the best crab baits there is (Halibut heads) and they just did not produce. The pots have been plugged with crab but so few keepers (lots of girls and under sized) that is not worthwhile. While it is disappointing we are not OK with taking your money with so little chance of a reward. We will continue to monitor the catch and will start in again when it improves enough to be worthwhile. We do want your crab dollars but we want you to have a reasonable opportunity for a decent catch.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/15/2018

We had boats out on a great ocean today fishing on both 5 and 6 hour trips. The bite on the 5 hour trips was tough due to a hard running current. That isn't to say that it was a bad day of fishing, the seas were calm and there was very little wind and there were decent numbers of fish caught although not everyone limited.

The six hour boat was doing the Long Leader fishery. The bite was slow to start but they finished strong with limits for everyone. The caught very few of the highly prized Yellow Tail but loaded up on giant sized Canaries. We have space available, give us a call at 541-765-2545 or use our online reservation service.

There is still limited space available for Halibut opportunities but the opening is rapidly approaching, call 541-765-2545 soon to make sure you don't miss out, or use our online reservation service.

Just to let those that don't yet know, Dockside has added another boat to the fleet, it is another 43' Delta Marine. Check out the boat (Outer Limits) and the Skipper's bio (Chris Schaffner) on Docksides fleet page. It will be available for the May 10th Halibut opener so give us a call to get on board. The Outer Limits will increase Dockside Charters capability to provide the high level of service to our clients they have come to expect.

The first Halibut all-depth opener was something of a bust for us, Thursday the fishing was difficult with only about 50 percent getting fish, Friday and Saturday the swells and wind keeps us inshore. We will have another opportunity the 24th,25th and 26th.

The marine conditions have kept us in port for over a week now, high seas and high winds. However, it looks like we are getting a break, the forecast looks very fishable for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. At this time the forecast for the weekend is for some big swells again. Hopefully the forecast moderates for the weekend.

Fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod has been quite good and we have no reason to think it won't remain good. We do have some space available so give us a call (On-line booking now available but not within 48 hours of departure time).

SALMON SEASON ANNOUNCED BY PFMC


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

04/11/2018

For those of you that are wondering about a salmon season this year the following is an excerpt from the PFMC's (Pacific Fisheries Management Council) decision from the recently concluded meeting determining quotas and seasonal dates for the different regions.

Recreational seasons on the central Oregon Coast (Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt.) opened for Chinook on March 15 and will continue through October 31 without interruption. Coho seasons will have quotas of 35,000 adipose fin-clipped coho in the hatchery mark selective season from June 30 through September 3, and an additional 3,500 coho quota in the September non-selective coho season that will be open each Friday and Saturday beginning on September 7 and continue through the earlier of September 29 or quota. In October, the recreational season will be restricted to salmon fishing only inside of the 40 fathom management line.

Bottom fishing continues to be strong, especially the new Long Leader fishery. Now if we could just get some cooperation from the weather. Once again we are plagued by a forecast of high seas with more than ample wind.

We now have our on-line reservation service up and running for your convenience. Access it through the Quick Link to the left.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

This was the last day for the offshore Ling Cod fishing until next October. Unfortunately the conditions out there kept us inshore (wind). Fortunately the Long Leader fishery offshore has been federally authorized starting April 1, 2018. Long Leader limits are for 10 of the big offshore Rockfish.

Also fortunate that the bite continues inshore as you can see in the picture of Ron with his delicious green Ling Cod.

We have lots of space available for tomorrow so give us a call rather Fish rather than hunting Easter Eggs. Weather conditions should be very favorable, light winds and virtually no swell. Lets go fishing.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

03/24/2018

Yes that is a Spotted Ratfish that Daniel is holding. They are not seen very often but they are unusual in so many ways. This cartilaginous fish is a chimaera found in the NE Pacific and gets it's characteristic name from a pointed rat-like tail.

Fishing has been very good, particularly in the nearshore fisheries for Ling Cod, Rockfish have been coming in limits too. Friday and Saturday the conditions kept us off the water but the forecast for the Sunday on look promising. We are full on Sunday but do have space available for Monday on.

The long leader fishery continues to produce a bonanza of Rockfish when the conditions allow us to get out there. It is proving to be a popular fishery.

We do have our ONLINE BOOKING activated again so if your are looking for that convenience give it a try. Go to the home page and find it in the "Quick Links" on the left. It is just part of Docksides effort to provide more and better services for our valued clients.

Fishing has been very good both in the nearshore and at depth, although the deep water fishery is slowing down somewhat. Ling Cod and Rockfish both have been snapping. Crab numbers remain down due to the competition from the commercials but it is still worth doing.

Notice The Bell Buoy


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

01/19/2018

Thankfully the ocean has settled down to a dull roar. Yesterday was a different matter altogether. The storm system brought some larger than average swells, some as big as 30 feet. The largest we have seen here in the past couple of decades is 42'. Sadly the swells, though impressive to see, took a human toll, one person lost their life, others were injured and there was significant property damage. We urge anyone visiting the coast to enjoy the spectacle of the ocean's fury from a safe distance. Respect her always.

In the picture you can see the bell buoy which typically is 1/2 mile from the harbor mouth. There is 13 feet of buoy that projects above the water so you can see from the picture, taken this morning, that it isn't flat calm yet. The force of the swells yesterday moved the buoy about 200 yards inshore and to the south. It is now nearly over the top of Flat Rock.

Needless to say we haven't been fishing for a day or two, but last time we were out it was good. Saturday was very good but Sunday required much more effort, a heavy current made fishing more difficult.
We will be getting trips out as soon as the ocean allows. Give us a call at 541-765-2545

Season Info:

Fishing inside 40 fathoms depth allowed only for flatfish, i.e. Sanddabs, Sole and Halibut (Halibut until October 30). No Rockfish or Ling Cod until January 1, 2018.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

We had a "Monster" Bite on the Long Leader fishing today. It started strong and finished strong on an ocean that did nothing but improve as the day went on. A marked difference from yesterday, it was cobby at first but just got better. The fishing was "Howlin Good" What a good way to end the month.

Dockside will be closing for the month of November but will reopen December 1st, ready for action.

Happy Halloween!

Tuna / Fishing Report:

10/30/2017

The Long Leader fishery has proven to be very good. We have had many good trips out since it started October 1st. The ten fish limit is popular and we have been getting limits most trips. We are looking forward to having it implemented year round.

Dockside Charters will be closing November 1st, for the month of November. This gives us the chance to perform maintenance on boats, skippers, deckhands, office staff and everyone associated with Dockside. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients for a stellar season. We couldn't do it without you! We also look forward to seeing you in the coming year.

10/24/2017

The ocean has been pretty cranky as forecast but it looks like we get a break Wednesday and Thursday. We have trips scheduled with space available. At this time of the year if you hesitate too long you might well miss an opportunity to go fishing. Give us a call at 541-765-2545 to make your reservation.

We have had a great run at the Long Leader fishery since it opened October first. Ten fish limits of big offshore Canaries, Yellow Tail and Widow Rockfish for almost everyone that has engaged in this fishery. It is a challenging fishery, working with the long leader and at the depths we are fishing at but the rewards (big fish, big limits) are worthwhile.


We will be making trips as the weather allows through the month of October. As always Dockside will be closed for the month of November to perform maintenance on our boats, skippers, deckhands and office staff. We will be back at it with vigor December first.

Season Info:

Fishing inside 40 fathoms depth allowed only for flatfish, i.e. Sanddabs, Sole and Halibut (Halibut until October 30). No Rockfish or Ling Cod until January 1, 2018.

Long Leader fishing for selected Rockfish open outside 40 fathoms depth until January 1, 2018. No retention of Yellow Eye Rockfish or Ling Cod.
