It Was A Good Ling Cod Bite Saturday


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/21/2018

Bottom fishing yesterday was very good both morning and afternoon. Great variety on Rockfish with mostly limits and an excellent bite on the Lings. Today some of the boats struggled while others dominated, Samson produced limits of Rockfish and Lings. Crabbing continues slow, miserably slow.

Salmon fishing was slow yesterday with only a few being taken. The ones we got were very nice fish, just not a lot. Today the salmon action was good but there were very few keepers. The Triumph had great action with 24-25 fish on but nothing they could keep.

Conditions offshore today were too tough for the Long Leader fishery, 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.

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.

Massive Copper Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/18/2018

All our boats were out fishing today on a great ocean, calm seas and very little wind. A good time was had by all. The bottom fishing was good with limits of Rockfish and many very nice Ling cod hitting the fillet tables. Crabbing remains slow for Depoe Bay, we hear areas to the north and south are doing better, they just haven't arrived here yet.

The Long Leader trip produced a great catch of Canaries and Yellow Tail, a limit for the fishermen, captain and crew.

Coho fishing is shaping up well, becoming more consistent. We had more than one fish per rod retained and many releases of OFTM's (One Fin Too Many )fish. Good action, good keeping, good fishing!

Tuna intel puts them out of range offshore, at least for the short term. We are watching all the indicators we have and will let you know when we know.

No report from our inshore Halibut boat today.

Great Fishing Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/17/2018

The Coho fishing hit it's stride today, just one fish short of a boat limit and 24 fish that were released.

The Rockfish bite was good today, limits for most everyone. Not all limited on Lings but a good number were taken.

The Hot Pursuit smoked em on the Long Leader fishery today. Just 2 fish short of a limit for all, of a great grade of Canaries and Yellow Tail.

Crabbing continues to be pretty close to terrible. Our intel says good numbers of crab are being taken both North and South of us. They just haven't shown up here yet, but they will and when they do, look out.

Tuna looks bleak for a few days, the weather event of late last week pushed them back off shore, we will keep you posted.

Inshore Halibut


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/16/2018

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 recent weather event that kept us off the water Thursday and Friday has pushed the Tuna back offshore and out of range for the next few days, there is no reason to panic yet, there is a lot of season to come. We are watching all the satellite imaging and checking all our other resources.

King Salmon for Sure


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/12/2018

We were blown off the water today and it looks grim for tomorrow. High winds and seas, we can blame it on the hot weather in the valley... Bad news for the tuna for a little while, word has it they have been pushed offshore. We did just get word from ODFW that the All-Depth Halibut is done until August. On the upside this bit of weather will start the up-welling we need for good Salmon fishing. Aren't I just a little ray of sunshine?

A Great Day Of Fishing


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/11/2018

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.

73 Pound Halibut From The Nearshore Fishery Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

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.

We had fantastic fishing this afternoon, our afternoon boats limited everyone on Rockfish and some got decent numbers of really nice Ling Cod too. The cabezon were on the bite also. Great marine conditions and fish on the bite, what more can you ask for?

Big King (Chinook) Taken This Morning


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/08/2018

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.

The Shape Of Things To Come


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/06/2018

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. 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.
