Fishing Report:

11/01/2019

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.

Don’t forget that you can make your reservations for the 2020 season online.

We will be checking the phones so if you need to purchase a gift certificate for that special fisherman leave a brief message and we will take care of you.

Seasonal info will be posted as it becomes available.

Annual Hot Pursuit Halloween Fish Fest (Zombies Like Fishing Too)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/30/2019

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. 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 Got Only A Few Of These Dandys Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/24/2019

We were able to get some fishing trips in today. The boats in the nearshore water did well on Rockfish but really had to work at it. The fish were not aggressively biting. We did take a few nice Ling Cod but no where near limits.

The boat we had out for Deep Water Ling limited on really nice Rockfish but only got a few Lings. They worked it hard all day but the fish just wouldn't do their part.

The ocean was great today. Tomorrow's forecast is good. Saturday has a significant swell predicted, then diminishing Sunday.

As you may guess from the photo Dockside won't be going fishing or whale watching today. Given the current forecast it doesn't look like we will be doing anything until the 23rd. We do however have Neptune putting a spectacular show. Right now the seas nearshore are forecast for swells up to 18 feet, they are all of that and even more.

We will have trips out for 5 hour bottom fish trips, 8 hour Long Leader and 8 hour Deep Water Ling trips as weather allows. We will keep you posted.

Evidence Of A Healthy Fishery


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/16/2019

We had a brief window of opportunity to get out fishing early in the week. That window has slammed shut with a vengeance with the arrival of wind, rain and large swells. The marine forecast doesn't look promising until next week. Hopefully it will moderate sooner but we are moving more into our late autumn/winter weather patterns so we will err on the side of caution.

We will have trips out for 5 hour bottom fish trips, 8 hour Long Leader and 8 hour Deep Water Ling trips as weather allows. We will keep you posted.

Jaws "Helping Himself" On A Long Leader Trip


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/14/2019

We had to pull the plug on todays (Monday) trips due to a cranky ocean. Not what we like to do but we must err on the side of caution. Tomorrow's forecast looks favorable and we just happen to have space available. Tuesday (tomorrow) is the last day for crabbing in the open ocean. It has been quite productive lately so don't miss out on your chance to catch crabs one last time. Wednesday the ocean is supposed to build to 13 feet in the nearshore waters. Thats a good day to stay home.

Sebastes Malinger (Quillback Rockfish)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/13/2019

Well folks today Neptune was very angry. We have high seas running that far exceeded the forecast. We expect to get underway tomorrow if the ocean settles down a bit. We will see if the weather guessers get it right tomorrow. Tuesday the forecast looks better too. Wednesday things promise to blow up in a big way. Hopefully the seas/forecast moderate.

Fishing yesterday was good for inshore Rockfish, the Lings were on the slow side. We had a boat out for deep water Ling Cod also. They did come home with some very nice fish but not limits and those that they did get required a lot of effort. Fishing isn't always easy.
