09/14/2020

Thankfully our Air Quality Index is at 53, well into the green Safe Zone. The change in wind direction and increased humidity has helped scour out the smoke locally and has helped the fire fighters combating the Kimberling Mountain-Echo Mountain wildfires that have been impacting our communities. The forecast for rain should help even more. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those that have suffered losses from the fires. Highway 18 through the Otis area continues to be closed.

We are getting fishing trips out on a daily basis. We are still observing our Covid-19 policies of course. Fishing has been quite good for Bottom Fish. The weekend trips produced well too. Crabbing continues to be good.

Sadly Coho has closed for 2020. The quota was taken in the first two days of the non-selective season.

COVID-19 POLICIES:

In order to meet the Governor's criteria for Phase One re-opening we have implementing a number of new procedures/policies. Please pay close attention, these are the things that will keep us fishing.

We were unable to fish or whale watch today due to extremely poor air quality, high winds and the fact that some of our personnel were forced to evacuate their homes. We have also cancelled Wednesdays trips as well for all the same reasons. The smoke plume that we are inundated by extends 250 miles to sea! Things should turn around by Thursday. Hasn't 2020 been great? In truth we are thankful we haven't been impacted more.

ODFW announced this afternoon the closure of the Non-Selective Coho Salmon season for the remainder of the year. It is amazing how quickly we caught the 2020 quota of fish.

ODFW has announced that retention of ground fish will be allowed on all-depth Halibut. They may be retained on our boats as incidental catch, we will not be targeting them.

ODFW has announced that recreational bottom fish opens to all depths September 1. During days open to both all-depth bottom fish and all-depth halibut anglers may retain both on the same trip.

ODFW announced a change in Groundfish bag limits and species retention. Effective 7-20-20 the Rockfish bag limit has been raised to 7 per person per day from the previous 5. Retention of any of the nearshore complex of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is now zero. Cabezon continue to be closed for the year.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/03/2020

The Dockside fleet headed out today on an ocean that was much nicer than yesterday (which was rough). The fish bit better too. Not a huge number of Lings but the Rockfish bit well. Crabbing for most boats was very good.

We have boats headed out for Halibut fishing tomorrow as well as some Long Leader and nearshore bottom fishing. Tomorrow is also the opening day of the non-selective Salmon season (open only Friday- Saturday), we will let you know how it all goes.

ODFW has announced that retention of ground fish will be allowed on all-depth Halibut. They may be retained on our boats as incidental catch, we will not be targeting them.

The conditions offshore continue to keep the Tuna pushed far out of range. The north winds just keep blowing. Grrrr.

ODFW has announced that recreational bottom fish opens to all depths September 1. During days open to both all-depth bottom fish and all-depth halibut anglers may retain both on the same trip.

The Coho season is closed. It will open up for non-selective September 4th and will be open each Friday-Saturday through September or until the quota is reached. Non-selective means any fish you get to the boat of legal length is yours to keep. Revised quota of 4,650 for the non-selective fishery.

Crab counts have dropped off a little bit but it is still worthwhile. On the subject of crabbing, each person involved in crabbing must be involved in pulling the pots. If the deck hands pull the pots they are eating crab...

What A Great Start To The Day


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/22/2020

We had to scrub our Halibut trips offshore again (due to icky weather) and the Tuna are out of reasonable range. Too much boat riding and not enough time for fishing. On the upside bottom fishing continues to produce well, not a great deal of Ling Cod action but Rockfish are doing well. Crab numbers and quality continue to be good.

The Coho season is closed. It will open up for non-selective September 4th and will be open each Friday-Saturday through September or until the quota is reached. Non-selective means any fish you get to the boat of legal length is yours to keep.

ODFW announced a change in bag limits and species retention. Effective 7-20-20 the Rockfish bag limit has been raised to 7 per person per day from the previous 5. Retention of any of the nearshore complex of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is now zero.

The Online Reservation Service has been reactivated for your convenience.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish on the majority of trips for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

COVID-19 POLICIES:

In order to meet the Governor's criteria for Phase One re-opening we have implementing a number of new procedures/policies. Please pay close attention, these are the things that will keep us fishing.

Long Leader Action Was Great Today

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/18/2020

Bottom fishing was good today. Just a few Rockfish short of limits for some folks but an excellent Ling bite, more than one per rod. Crabbing produced limit catches.

The marine conditions were as good as we could wish for hardly a swell and very little wind. Fog was the only down side.

The Long Leader trip produced many limit catches, the ocean was great and the fog cleared off 17 miles offshore. Crabbing was solid.

The Coho season is closed for hatchery fish. It will open up for non-selective September 4th and will be open each Friday-Saturday through September or until the quota is reached.

Halibut is open this Thursday-Friday-Saturday. Still plenty of quota left.

Still no good Tuna news. Only a few fish being taken, well past the range we can travel to.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/14/2020

The Rockfish and Ling Cod bite has slowed down somewhat. We have still been getting good numbers of fish but limits have been difficult. The Cabezon quota has been reached and is closed for the year. Crabbing numbers have dropped off a little also, but is still very much worthwhile.

Salmon (coho) has been up and down, we have had days with very good action and little retention (they must be fin-clipped fish) and then some days with very little action. The selective salmon season closes Sunday the 16th. The non-selective salmon season opens September 4th and 5th (Friday-Saturday) then each Friday-Saturday until the quota is taken or the 30th of September.

All-depth Halibut fishing is coming up again the 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/09/2020

The ocean was a bit cranky today due to plenty of wind and a building swell. Inspire of the conditions being marginal the fish bit well. Good counts on Rockfish and a few Ling Cod. Crabbing was excellent.

Coho fishing started off with gusto, a 19 pound Chinook and a great grade of Coho hit the deck. The ocean was cranky offshore making the conditions difficult to fish. We had a number of drive bys that were on and gone, several Coho with one fin too many and that pretty well sums up the trip.

Reports from commercial boats put Tuna way out of range.

The SurfRider Underway For Depoe Bay


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/01/2020

At long last the SurfRider has arrived in Depoe Bay. After a months long refit she is as fine a Delta charter boat as you will find. Virtually every aspect of the boat has been renewed, repaired, repainted and fitted out with the latest electronics package on the market. Owned and operated by Tyler Turner this is the culmination of a long time dream. Tyler has long been accustomed to overcoming challenges throughout his life. A spinal injury at age 19 resulted in paraplegia. He has gone on to become the first ever (and to date only) paraplegic to be issued a 100 ton masters license by the Coast Guard. He has worked for years in tandem with his father on the charter boat Tacklebuster gaining the respect of the fleet as a safe, successful operator and expert fisherman. He is a husband and the father of two daughters and has now added boat owner to his list of accomplishments. Tyler lives his life with the philosophy of "No Compromise". The SurfRider is chartering for all aspects of our fisheries as well as Whale Watching. A strong addition to the Dockside Fleet, like all the boats in our fleet, setting the standard for the industry. Don't miss your opportunity to go out on the SurfRider.

The SurfRider is out today on her inaugural Halibut trip, no report yet.

The bottom fish trips had limits of Rockfish, the Ling Cod bite was slow. Crabbing continues to be very good.

Fishing today for Rockfish and was scratchy at best but we are tenacious. We kept at it and were able to produce some decent catches. Thankfully the ocean was user friendly as can be. Crabbing continues to be good.

The Halibut fishermen did well today. Everyone got their fish including the crew. The grade was mixed but the big fish of the day was 52 inches, over 68 pounds. It was caught by a first time fisherman who said it was "a whole lot of work".

Salmon fishing continues to be slow. We had a boat out today that had only a few fish on and they were not able to bring one to the boat.
Will it get better? We just don't know.

Tuna are still out of range. We are watching diligently and will let you know when they get closer.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/29/2020

Although it started out foggy today the seas were calm with not very much wind, kind of surprising considering the heat inland. Our fleet was out after Rockfish and Ling Cod. The bite was slow even though there were significant scoops of fishing showing they were slow to bite. At the end of the trips we ended up with decent catches and a few remarkable fish (see the picture). The fish bit better in the afternoon. Crabbing continues to be good.

No Salmon report, no boats have been out for several days.

Thursday in another All-Depth Halibut opener. We have room for two walk-ins in the morning. $260.00 each 05:00 check-in.

Tuna continue to be pushed offshore by the current weather events. When we get a change in the weather they should move back in range.

ODFW announced a change in bag limits and species retention. Effective 7-20-20 the Rockfish bag limit has been raised to 7 per person per day from the previous 5. Retention of any of the nearshore complex of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is now zero.

The Online Reservation Service has been reactivated for your convenience.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish on the majority of trips for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

COVID-19 POLICIES:

In order to meet the Governor's criteria for Phase One re-opening we have implementing a number of new procedures/policies. Please pay close attention, these are the things that will keep us fishing.

They are as follows:

Limited passenger loads.

Please arrive as close as possible to your check-in time. This minimizes congestion onshore.

Social Distancing onboard and shoreside closely monitored.

Masks required onboard and onshore, if you need to take it off, sit in your car. BRING YOUR OWN MASK. We do have masks available for those who do not have one in our office for $1 each. This is not optional, due to the Governor's latest executive order.

Restricted cabin access.

No Coffee will be provided due to restricted cabin access, if you like bring your own beverages and snacks.

Foul weather gear recommended due to restricted cabin access. (no crowding in the cabin)

We want everyone to come and enjoy fishing with us. In order for us to resume operations and keep the doors open we depend on your cooperation with all the new policies. They are not optional, they are required.

Dockside Charters has been working diligently to develop Standard Operating Procedures that will allow us to resume operations while safeguarding our clients, captains, crews and shoreside personnel. What that means is paying special attention to: social distancing, PPE, sanitation, reduced passenger loads, limited office access, eliminating bottleneck areas that cause crowding and any other issues that may impact our ability to provide the service that you have become accustom to.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/27/2020

Our All-Depth Halibut boats did well during the last opener. The fish didn't come easy, they had to sort through many smalls but ultimately came home with a good grade of fish.

Salmon fishing remains slow. The results have not been encouraging.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips continue to produce well. Limits of Rockfish are more common than not and Ling Cod have been averaging over one per rod. Crabbing remains good with anywhere from five to ten per person.

Weather is the issue with holding us back on Tuna fishing. Conditions have pushed the fish a long way offshore and the wind and swell have created poor conditions offshore.

ODFW announced a change in bag limits and species retention. Effective 7-20-20 the Rockfish bag limit has been raised to 7 per person per day from the previous 5. Retention of any of the nearshore complex of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is now zero.

Retention of any of the nearshore complex of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is now zero. Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing has remained good although for the last few days the bite has not been smoking hot. Fish are showing on the fish finders in large aggregations but have not bitten well. It has taken continued effort by the fisherman to come home with limit or near limit catches. Crab catches continue to be good.

Our Halibut fishermen had to put in a long day yesterday but did get their fish. The bite was slow in the morning and about half of the fish were put back because of the size. As the days progressed so did the size of the fish. It made for a long hard day on the water but they finished strong.

No Salmon boats out for a couple of days so no new report there.

The Salmon fishing boats did get fish and some other action on fish that couldn't be kept but slow would be a good descriptive word.

The bottom fishing boats on the other hand did very well on both the AM and PM trips. Rockfish limits and good numbers of Lings in the morning, just a few lings in the afternoon. The afternoon Rockfish bite was awesome in spite of the wind and chop.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/12/2020

Bottom fishing picked up again today after several days of being "off", Ling Cod were slow to bite but the Rockfish did well, there were a decent number of Lings taken but nowhere near limits. We had another banner day of crabbing.

The Coho bite was the best it has been since the opening of the season. There was good, steady action with many fish that were not fin clipped and a number of others that made it about half to the boat before coming unpinned. We finished up the trip with 10 fish, one of them the Chinook pictured. We had only one boat chasing salmon today.

TUNA UPDATE: We have reliable intel of Tuna being caught at 40 miles from Depoe Bay today. We have a trip scheduled for Friday with space available. Get your name in the hat.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

We had no Coho fishing boats out today but we will tomorrow.

The Bottom Fishing was slow today, just one of those days of fishing. The crabbing continues to be good.

The Halibut boats had to work at things today but they did get their fish and arrived home just after four. Most of the fish were in the 38-43 inch range with a few even larger, an excellent grade of fish overall.

We have been blessed with some incredibly nice weather here in sunny downtown Depoe Bay for several days now. The long range forecast is looking good for the next week. Now would be a great time to get out for some fishing. We have space available for a Long Leader trip Wednesday. Our Long Leader trip last Saturday was as good as it gets. Limits of big Rockfish (Long Leader trips are a ten Rockfish limit) and crew fish too, plus good crabbing.

We have space available for All-Depth Halibut on Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th, possibly the best weather days you could have for Offshore Halibut fishing. Call us to get your spot.

After a couple days of slow fishing for inshore Rockfish and Lings the bite exploded today on the Rockfish. We finished up on Rockfish in short order then spent the rest of the time looking for Ling Cod. The Ling Cod remained elusive. A few were taken but nowhere near limits. Crabbing continues to be very good.

Coho fishing remains slow on keepers but the action has been fairly good.

The Dockside fleet went forth today on a squiggly ocean, some for Coho others for Rockfish and Ling Cod. neither fishery produced well. The Coho fishermen had some action but were unable to get anything to the boat. The water temps improved from what they have been into the mid fifties. The bottom fishermen worked hard but the fish were off the bite. There were fish taken but no where near limits. Crabbing on the other hand produced well.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

Today (Sunday) the ocean turned out to be too cranky to go out on. Discretion being the better part of valor plus client comfort being paramount, we stayed home. Yesterday we had trips out morning and afternoon for bottom fishing. The morning trips produced limits or near limits of Ling Cod but the Rockfish were way off the bite. The afternoon produced excellent catches of Lings and the Rockfish bite lit off again making for a strong finish to the day. Crabbing produced good numbers of crab for all the crabbers. We had no boats out for Coho Salmon Saturday as the water temps were not looking good for them.

The Dockside Halibut fleet had a small weather window today. Fortunately they got to the fishing hole, dropped in and immediately started hooking up. All three boats got fish for clients, captains and crew and were heading home early. The last boat hit the dock (gently) at 10:45. The grade of fish was vey good ranging from 34" to 49"(49 inches is equal to 56.5 pounds).

The inshore boats had a good catch of fish, the Lings were slow to bite but everyone who put in the effort came home with decent numbers of Rockfish and each boat had a few Lings. Crab hit the cauldron at 3 per person. We do have space available early in the week.

The Dockside fleet got underway today for the fishing grounds. Rockfish and Ling Cod were on the agenda and catches were good. Not everyone limited on Ling Cod but many were caught and nearly everyone got their limits of Rockfish. The swells were gentle and the winds light, the sun was even shining. A very pleasant day on the water. The marine forecast for the rest of the week looks favorable. Give us a call to make your reservation at 541-765-2545

The marine conditions (high winds and seas) kept us off the water again today. Fortunately the forecast is much better for Sunday and Monday. We have limited space available Sunday but good opportunities Monday. Give us a call at 541-765-2545 to make your reservation. We do have some afternoon fishing available Sunday.

Captain Chris has completed a major refit of his boat the "Outer Limits". It has been a months long process, he has done the majority of the work and the outcome is nothing short of spectacular. Since taking the boat out of service last fall he has worked nearly nonstop. The list of upgrades is extensive: New exterior paint and non-skid deck coatings, new window glass throughout, refinished brightwork, additional electronics upgrades, new deck treatment in the cabin. Below decks is where even more extensive work was done starting with a complete re-power. Out with the old engines and in with new technology Cummins QSB series engines (significantly more horsepower), new transmissions, new shafts and propellors. Complete new upgraded exhaust and muffler system, new engine wiring harnesses and controls, new fuel filtration system. The afterdeck is completed with a brand new custom built bait station.

Captain Chris and his family have invested a huge amount of work and a significant amount of money in this project, indicative of his commitment to his clients and the charter industry. The culmination of the project is a boat that looks great, is an improved fishing platform and will get you to the fishing hole fast with a bona fide cruise speed of 20+ knots. Captain Chris and the Outer Limits are available for all of the fisheries. His commitment, dedication and passion make him a successful fisherman.

Early reports from the fishing grounds today are windy and a fast drift.

We did have boats out fishing again today and early reports indicate another day of excellent fishing. Snapping Rockfish and ravenous Ling Cod make for a good day on the water. Crabbing continues to be slow, very frustrating to be sure.

The City of Depoe Bay has approved reopening of short term rentals (hotels/motels etc.) May 21st. Hopefully they can gear up and get back to business for the Memorial Weekend.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/22/2020

Dockside had boats out again today, one was scheduled for Deep Water Ling but the conditions became more and more nautical the further they went. Consequently they joined the others on the nearshore fishery. Initial the bite was very slow but it improved and they ended up with excellent catches of Ling Cod and Rockfish. Not everyone limited on Lings but there was better than one per rod. Great variety on Rockfish too. We had no Halibut charters out today but we are headed out Saturday. Reports from other sources indicate another slow day of Halibut fishing, what we know for sure is the ocean was not very user friendly. Tomorrow is a brand new day and the forecast is somewhat better.

Due to the cancellation of the Fleet of Flowers Ceremony we will be fishing on Memorial Day (Monday).

The City of Depoe Bay has approved reopening of short term rentals (hotels/motels etc.) May 21st. Hopefully they can gear up and get back to business for the Memorial Weekend. Show your support by reserving with our local businesses. Chinook Winds Casino previously announced reopening with modified hours on the 21st.

In order to meet the Governor's criteria for Phase One re-opening we are implementing a number of new procedures/policies. Please pay close attention, these are the things that will keep us fishing. They are as follows:

ON-LINE RESERVATIONS ARE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. TO MAKE A RESERVATION CALL 541-765-2545

If anyone is symptomatic stay home, but call us and let us know.

Call the day before your trip to make sure there are no last minute changes.

Limited office access.

All trips must be PRE-PAID. Everyone needs to have their FISHING LICENSE and any required tags prior to arrival. Available at myodfw.com At this time fishing is authorized for non-residents BUT NOT CRABBING (not our idea, it was mandated by ODFW).

Limited passenger loads.

Staggered check-in times. Please arrive as close as possible to your check-in time.

Social Distancing onboard and shoreside closely monitored.

Masks required onboard and onshore, if you need to take it off, sit in your car. BRING YOUR OWN MASK.

Restricted cabin access.

No Coffee will be provided due to restricted cabin access, if you like bring your own.

We still have no good timeframe to resume operations. There are some challenges that make it difficult to start up. Phase One has travel restrictions limiting non-essential travel to 50 miles, Lincoln County has prohibited short term rentals (hotels/motels/B&Bs etc) through May, gathering in groups of more than ten are prohibited. ODFW has yet to make a decision on opening All-Depth Halibut as scheduled or to postpone. We have been involved in an seemingly endless number of virtual meetings in an effort to make informed intelligent decisions and we can only conclude that it isn't quite time yet.

Dockside Charters has been working diligently to develop Standard Operating Procedures that will allow us to resume operations while safeguarding our clients, captains, crews and shoreside personnel. What that means is paying special attention to: social distancing, PPE, sanitation, reduced passenger loads, limited office access, eliminating bottleneck areas that cause crowding and any other issues that may impact our ability to provide the service that you have become accustom to.

It is uncertain yet how the parameters established by the Governor's Phase One, Two and Three plans will mesh with the charter industry given the physical restrictions that come with working on boats. It is also unknown just when we will be able to resume operations, working within the framework of the Phases. It would appear that we will be able to resume operations in Phase II. We are continuing to work with state agencies to see were we fit within the framework. We will resume operations just as soon as we have all the information we need to do so in a safe, responsible manner.

Although our office is closed to the public we have personnel answering phones and returning calls from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday.

We are also encouraging folks to defer or re-schedule any reservations you might have coming up during Stay Home Stay Safe. Just as soon as we get the word that we can get back to work we will be ready. We have taken advantage of the time on our hands to continue to maintain and upgrade our boats.

The Surfrider (the newest 50 footer in the fleet) is in the shipyard for a major refit and will be like brand new when it returns. Outer Limits has new engines (more power), new paint, new bait station and many other upgrades. Tacklebuster has an upgraded bait station. Samson has new deck paint. Hot Pursuit has paint and bright-work upgrades. We are anxious to get back to work.

This just announced by ODFW:

It was a great day of fishing today although it way windy. All boats reported in the Ling Cod and Rockfish produced limit catches while crabbing absolutely stunk. If we have to take a break it is nice to finish on a high note. (well except for the crab).

Dockside Charters, Inc. of Depoe Bay has come to the very difficult decision to suspend our operations temporarily in light of the COVID-19 crisis. As leaders in the charter industry we have concluded the most responsible action we can take, in the best interest of our clients, crews and staff, is suspending operations for the short term. Initially we tried to curtail our group sizes as per the governors guidelines. As the crisis has evolved it is clear that suspending operations is our best course of action. It is our intention to evaluate conditions on a weekly basis. We will be rescheduling, refunding or issuing gift cards as needed. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but we must do the right thing. If you have a reservation that will be impacted in the time frame indicated we will contact you. Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times. We are sailing uncharted waters. This will take effect Sunday 22, 2020. Please see our website for continuing updates at www.docksidesepoebay.com.

The wind picked up near the end of the trip but overall the conditions were good. Fishing was excellent, lots of Lings were caught and a variety of Rockfish. Limits were more the rule than the exception. Crabbing was unspectacular.

We got the Hot Pursuit out Friday for a fishing trip. There was a small window of opportunity in the morning and we took advantage of it. The fish were slow to bite initially but they did take off. Everyone got limits of Rockfish and 84 percent of the Ling Cod (4 short of a boat limit). They did not crab because the seas were pretty large and crab counts have been quite low.

The forecast for the weekend is not good (big swells). Things should settle down for Monday and then right back up on Tuesday if you can believe the weather guessers.

Some minor changes to the Rockfish bag limit this year. There is a sub-bag limit of one China, Copper or Quillback Rockfish per person per day. The general marine bag limit remains five Rockfish and two Ling Cod (over 22"). Sport crabbing in the ocean is open.

Dockside Charters wants to thank all of our clients, we have had another great season because we have great clients and we are grateful that you chose our charter service. We are closed for the month of November and most of December. This gives us the time to maintain and improve our fleet and facilities so we will continue to have the cleanest, best maintained fleet and shoreside facility on the coast. We look forward to serving you in 2020 and are anxious to see you at all the Sportsman Shows too. 2019 was a great year for us and we have changes planned to make 2020 even better.

One of those changes is bringing the Affair back into the lineup. Same great six man boat as ever and Kain Crawford will be at the helm. His experience and enthusiasm are an asset and we are glad to have him back in the fleet after a short hiatus.

The ocean was great today and Dockside had boats out for fishing the nearshore water. The fish weren't biting very well but everyone kept working at it and by the end of the day everyone had their Rockfish and about one Ling Cod per rod. The marine conditions were so good today it was a privilege to be on the water. We do have room for walk-ins in the morning (Thursday), so be there at 7 am to check in.

Remember that Dockside closes the first of November for six weeks. That gives us time to maintain the boats, the captains and crews and the office staff as well (therapy helps). It has been a productive year but it is time for a little break.

Remember too if you have pictures from a trip you can download them to Dockside's Photo Gallery.

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

The Dockside fleet is out again on an incredible ocean. Very little swell and not much wind. The only thing to remind us it is autumn is a rather cool east wind. We have boats out in both the nearshore and out plumbing the depths for the deep water Lings.

Yesterday the nearshore boats had to work hard for their fish but those that kept the gear in the water and worked it did well. Crabbing wasn't as good as it has been for the last week but it was still worthwhile.

The Halibut boats did well. It was indeed a fishing free for all, you could keep anything but Yellow Eye, Not everyone got two Halibut but there were limit catches of Rockfish and varieties of fish not found inshore. Another great (but long)day on the water.

As for the marine forecast it is variable for the next few days. Sunday is building a bit, more wind and swell, back down Monday and Tuesday then things blow apart Wednesday with wind and a pretty major swell. Remember that is a forecast and is changeable this time of the year.

Great fishing today on our boats. Everything we had out was nearshore, there was nothing offshore. All the boats were done on Rockfish by 9:30 giving us lots of time to work on Ling Cod. We did our part but the Ling didn't do theirs all that well. A few were caught but no where near limits. Crabbing for the past few days has been very good, anywhere from 8 to 12 per person. Crabbing season ends the 15th of this month so don't miss out.

We have an All Depth Halibut trip scheduled for the 11th (Friday) with space available. Here is your chance for a last hurrah.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 / Fishing Report:

09/08/2019

Early reports from the inshore boats are positive. A good bite on Rockfish and good ocean conditions. One boat is done on Rockfish and is in the hunt for Lings now.
No word yet from the salmon boats today but fishing picked up yesterday a bit. Certainly not smoking hot yet though.

Long Leader fishing is producing awesome catches. Also a very weather dependent fishery. We have a boat out doing that today, we will keep you posted.

Tuna continue to hit the decks, reports this morning indicate a pretty "chunky" ocean. We will see how it turns out tonight.

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/06/2019

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.

No Halibut or Long Leader boats out today.

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.

09/02/2019

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/17/2019

Great day on the tuna grounds today. The seas were rough as all get out early in the day but laid down as the day went by. Fishing was good as you can see by the picture. It was a long but productive day on the water.

Rockfish inshore bit well, limits for most everyone. Ling Cod not so much but there were some taken. Crabbing was 4-6 per person again.

No boats out for Salmon today but we heard they sport boats did pretty well.

The Long Leader fishery produce big numbers of big fish yet again. It is proving to be a popular fishery.

This weekend (Saturday and Sunday) are ODFW free fishing days. In other words no license is needed for those two days. No License, No Tag, No Endorsement Needed.

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 Outer Limits had another successful Tuna trip today. The ocean was a little cranky but in spite of that it was a good trip that produced 4 fish per fisherman. Captain Chris is doing it again tomorrow (Saturday).

Tacklebuster was Halibut fishing in the All-Depth fishery and fishished up with a limit for all in record time, with a very nice grade of fish.

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing was good again, lots of limits of Rockfish but short on Ling Cod. Crabbing produced 3-5 per person.

The Coho fishing was strong on action again with many non-finclipped fish coming to the boats but not very many fin clipped keepers.

The Long Leader fishery produced an awesome catch again. The grade of fish was excellent too with limits of big canaries, Yellow Tail and Widow rockfish.

Dockside had just one tuna boat out today but they did a bang up job. 65 fish hit the fillet tables to include the Bluefin pictured. They reported having 11 hooked up at one time and landed all 11 of them. That is remarkable fishing.

Rockfish and Ling Cod trips produce limit catches of Rockfish but very few Ling Cod. The water temp has warmed up a few degrees and has put the Ling off the bite somewhat. Crabbers got 3-5 per person over the course of the day.

Salmon fishing had outrageous action today. Many OFTMs (One Fin Too Many) In spite of that the rate of retention was 1 1/2 per rod.

No Long Leader fishing done today.

Retention of Cabezon will be prohibited for all boat based anglers effective 12:01 a.m. on Friday August 16th, for the remainder of 2019.

Tuna, More Than An Addiction


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/14/2019

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.

The Salmon bite improved Sunday as new schools of fish are moving through. We had retention of fish at about one per rod and lots of action on non-fin clipped fish that must be released.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It has been a week since we had a Tuna trip out. It was a very successful trip but we have been weathered out since then. Call us for available dates.

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:

07/31/2019

Salmon fishing was slow again yesterday as far as fish that could be retained. Action was fair with good numbers of fish coming to the boat but not very many were fin clipped. Rockfish and Ling Cod on the other hand rocked it. Limits or near limits of Rockfish and about one fish per rod on Lings. Both the morning and afternoon trips were productive. Crabbing remains variable with three to eight per person. We will have to continue to cull out soft crab for some time to come.

We have space coming up in August for Tuna. Hopefully the weather cooperates like it has for weeks now. There is a big difference between the nearshore forecast and the Tuna grounds though.

All Depth Halibut is open again August 2nd and 3rd. We have some space available Friday the 2nd. Call soon to make your reservation.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/29/2019

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.

All Depth Halibut is open again August 2nd and 3rd. We have some space available Friday the 2nd. Call soon to make your reservation.

Coho fishing remains on the slow side. Good action on non-fin clipped fish but not very many keepers coming on board.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

The last Halibut trip started off slow but finished like gangbusters. And better yet they brought home a nice grade of fish. The All-Depth fishery opens again the 18th, 19th and 20th. We only have space available on the 18th. Call soon or reserve online to get your spot.

The Rockfish morning and afternoon was an Action Packed Bite, smoking hot. The Ling did not cooperate which is disappointing but that's fishing. The crabbing did pretty well too, not limits but good numbers going in the hot tub.

Salmon fishing was also action packed. Many fish coming to the boats, some going back, some going home. Everyone went home with fish, most folks limited. Quite a few Chinook coming in with the Coho too, about 20% of the catch.

We have a spot or two for the Long Leader fishing coming up on Monday. Get your reservation made for this awesome 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. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/04/2019

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/25/2019

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.

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.

Early reports from the Salmon boats today are good, they have fish on board and are enjoying good action. The chinook pictured above was one of yesterdays catch. The marine forecast looks great through this coming weekend so take advantage the opportunity with a fishing trip. Coho must be hatchery, fin clipped fish over 16" Chinook need not be fin clipped but must be 24".

Rockfish and Ling Cod catches remain good having recovered from a little dip and the crab counts have improved. We have a boat out on the Long Leader fishery today, we will let you know how that goes.

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.

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.

Dockside boats had a great day on the water today. Limits of Rockfish all the way around and a remarkably good catch of Ling Cod, limits or near limits for all. Crabbing ranged from 3-7 per person today. There are some soft ones beginning to show up now so we do have to high grade them.

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.

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.

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.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/09/2019

Dockside got its boats out on a wonderful ocean this morning, the wind offshore kept us from doing the Long Leader but inshore is nice as can be. As you can see there is a pretty good bite going on, some boats are already done on Rockfish in fact. It is a great day to be on the water.

We had boats out Saturday for the All-Depth Halibut fishery. 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 Monday. 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.

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 can't seem to catch a break from the weather lately. We were forced to cancel our offshore trips (Halibut and Long Leader) due to the forecast conditions. We were hoping to get out for nearshore trips today but the ocean is just too cranky. The forecast is pretty unsettled for several days, we have to take things day by day. As you can see from the picture fishing is good when we can get out there.

Given how unsettled the forecast is give the office a call regarding scheduling. 541-765-2545

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/19/2019

We had boats out on the near and offshore fisheries today and it was good fishing near and far. Limits of Rockfish on the Long Leader in near record time and limits of Rockfish in the nearshore and a few Lings just for good measure. The Ling Cod bite was much slower today than yesterday but that's fishing. Crabbing continues to be slow to moderately good. We have space available for the nearshore fishing Monday (the 20th). Give us a call or make a reservation on line.

The marine forecast looks good for tomorrow. Then there is a large swell forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. We do have space available for tomorrow.
.
There is space available for all-depth Halibut Thursday, Friday and Saturday and we have been Rockin the Halibut.
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.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/17/2019

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.

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. Halibut fishing resumes next Thursday, Friday and Saturday. All depth only No Inshore 8 hour Halibut trips available until June.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

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

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. Halibut fishing resumes next Thursday, Friday and Saturday. All depth only no inshore 8 hour trips available until June.

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.

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?

May the 1st is when we start our early departures (05:30 check-in). The early check-in and departure really paid off today. There is an excellent Ling Cod snap! Limits by 07:00. Now they are looking for Rockfish. As you can see from the picture the ocean is just about as user friendly as can be. The marine forecast looks great through Saturday so make a call and get on board or make a reservation online at docksidedepoebay.com

Yesterday was the end of the Deep Water Ling Cod fishing until this fall, the weather finally gave us a little break and we were able to get a boat out there. 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.

Now is the time to make your Halibut reservation. Time grows short as the season opens May 9th. We still have space but mostly on Thursday and Friday. 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 got out fishing again today, in the nearshore. There was too much wind to go offshore. Fishing was pretty darn good though limits of Jurasabass and about one Ling per rod. Crabbing produced four per person. Not great but not bad either. It looks like we will get a break in the weather for the last day of Deep Water Ling fishing until October. Remember that the Long Leader fishery is open year round.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

We were able to sail today, staying inshore. Nothing offshore due to the conditions. The wind built through the morning and by time to come home the wind had whipped the seas into a frenzy. We were fortunate to get the trips in.

Fishing was pretty good with most people limiting on Rockfish and good catches of Ling Cod, over 1 per rod. Not limits but good catches. Crabbing has improved over the past couple of days, 4 plus per person. The forecast for the coming week looks decent for the inshore waters and promising for the Deep Water on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday will be the last day for Deep Water Lings until October. The Long Leader fishery is open all year.

Now is the time to make your Halibut reservation. Time grows short as the season opens May 9th. We still have space but mostly on Thursday and Friday. Make your reservation now so you don't miss out.

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

Finally after a week of foul weather we were able to sail today. The Ling Cod were not biting very well but the Rockfish did very well. As long as you had a line in the water you were going to get your limit. It is to be expected that the Lings would be off the bite considering recent weather. This Tuesday and Thursday are likely the better days, a slightly larger swell is forecast for Wednesday.

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.
