Amazing day of Halibut fishing out there! Our boat came in with a limit of Halibut for all passengers and crew onboard, along with some ling cod and rockfish as well!

Bottomfishing was also excellent today with limits of rockfish reported on all the boats. They're still bringing in some ling cod as well, not as many as early on in this season but they're still catching a few! Ocean forecast looks great these next few days, come on out while the fishing is hot!

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/13/2022

We had our first offshore halibut trip today and it wasn't too bad of a day out there! The Surfrider is on his way in with just a couple fish shy of a limit of halibut for the fishermen on board. They reported a lot of black cod and rockfish as well - this is the first year rockfish can be kept on offshore trips, which definitely makes the trip a little bit more fun. We've got offshore halibut trips scheduled throughout May and June, give us a call if you'd like to be on one of these trips!

We had a couple of bottom fishing boats out today as well, and they all reported either limits or near limits of rockfish. There was some ling cod in the mix as well, though they're not limiting on ling cod lately they are still catching them out there! Crabbing averaged between 2-3 per person, which is not too bad at all. Hoping to see those numbers improve over the next few weeks!

We had a couple of boats out fishing today, the ocean conditions didn't quite subside as much as was in the forecast and it made for a bumpy, windy day out there.

We have space Wednesday through Friday in the morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. The next 5 days are showing very low swells and minimal wind so it should create some great conditions for fishing.

We had the whole fleet out rock fishing today and it sounds like everyone did very well out there. All the boats reported in good ling cod catches, and a lot of them had some good size to them. The one pictured here came off the Samson today. Crabbing is still fair with averages of about 1-3 per person. Those numbers should be getting better as we get later into the season though. Ocean conditions look great for tomorrow, but starting Sunday through Wednesday it looks like we've got a bit of rough weather coming. Forecast for Thursday looks good right now though!

It is a new day, in fact the dawn of a new era at Dockside Charters. On the 1st of March Dockside Charters was sold. Tyler Turner, owner and Captain of the Surfrider is the new owner of Dockside. This gives Loren and Dorinda the opportunity to retire, a goal we have been working toward for a lifetime. We are confident that Tyler will continue to provide clients the unparalleled personal service that Dockside is known for. We are excited for Tyler as he meets this new opportunity and the challenge of taking Dockside Charters to the next level. As for Dorinda and I we will miss all the people we have met over the years that have become friends rather than just clients as well as the day to day operation of a business that sells fun. We are looking forward to time with grandkids and traveling.

It has been a gratifying experience growing a business that helps support our community but the time has come for the next generation to take the helm. We will always treasure the relationships we have developed over the decades at Dockside, thank you to all.

Dockside had a great day on the water today. The ocean was flat the wind was calm and the fish bit well. Lots of Ling Cod and Rockfish for everyone. Crabbing produced 3 each. The weather forecast is taking a turn for the worse for a few days. It looks promising starting again on Tuesday. The forecast also calls for near freezing temperatures, so be prepared for that. The forecast for Thursday and Friday look fantastic aside from being chilly. Get On Board, we have space available!

There are still a few spots left on Tuesday's trip on the Surfrider. The office will be closed Monday so make your reservation online.

Wednesday the swell is forecast to go to 14 feet and stay that way throughout the week. So let's get out there tomorrow! This will most likely be the last chance before we shut down for the season.

Coho Salmon season closed for us on the 29th. (the seas were too rough on the 30th) The Samson was coho fishing and Captain James finished strong catching limits for everyone on the boat. The bottom fishing has been doing well also, most people limiting on Rockfish but a slow bite on Ling Cod. The crab catch has been good but variable day to day. Crabbing closes in the ocean October 15th.

We had an excellent Salmon bite today. Two boats limited and the third came very close. We have space available Sunday morning. The grade box fish was outstanding and there were some Chinook among the Coho too.

Rockfish boats didn't have as good a bite, it required tenacity to get the job done. This folks that stuck with it did well and went home with good catches. Crabbing remains good.

Wind offshore is keeping us fishing the nearshore waters. Sunday afternoon there is building wind forecast and by Tuesday the swell is forecast to build to 15 feet.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/12/2021

The non-select Coho season is going well. As is typical there are days when the action is crazy good and others when it is slow. The fish are for the most part are a really good grade, fat and delicious! It is open only Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there is quota remaining.

Bottom fishing continues to hold up well. Limits of Rockfish are common. The Ling Cod bite has been slow but that is typical of this time of year. Crabbing has improved dramatically.

ODFW has changed the All Depth Halibut fishery to a two fish/per day limit.
Rockfish and Ling Cod can also be retained. Unfortunately we have no space available.

On the subject of Tuna: We have had a pretty dismal year. We have gotten only two trips under way and though we did catch fish each time the fish were widely scattered and well off shore. Reports from other boats have not been encouraging. As it is getting late in the season we are not putting any more trips out. We have no reasonable expectation of putting fish on the deck for you.

Well here it is September again, it is hard to imagine where the time has gone. We have boats out today plundering the reefs for Rockfish and Ling Cod and some Crab for good measure. We have been enjoying calm seas in the nearshore waters for a few days.

There are still some Halibut dates coming up.

The Non-Select Coho season opens Friday September 10th. That means any Coho that you bring to the boat over legal length is yours to keep. Just heat and eat! It is a Friday, Saturday, Sunday fishery only, with a quota of 14,000 fish to be caught between Cape Falcon and Humbug Mountain. We don't know yet if ODFW will roll any of the remaining quota from the summer fin clipped season into the Non-Select season.

Weather offshore continues to be a big factor in Tuna fishing. We have not been able to get more than one trip underway so far.

This Saturday marks the end of the Hatchery Coho salmon season. September 10th the non-selective salmon season opens for a quota of 14,000 fish. The quota for the hatchery season of 120,000 fish still has 48% remaining, hopefully ODFW will roll some of that into the upcoming non-select season.

Fishing for bottom fish has held up quite well. Rockfish are biting well but the Ling Cod take has been slow. Crabbing has picked up quite well.

ODFW Staff recommended 2021 PACIFIC HALIBUT Sport Seasons: Officially adopted 04-23-21

Central Oregon Coast Subarea

Spring All-Depth Season:

Fixed Dates: May 13-15, May 20-22, June 3-5, June 10-12, June 17-19, and July 1-3.
Back-up Dates (available if quota remains): July 15-17 and July 29-31.
Quota = 172,244 pounds.
For the Central Oregon Coast spring all-depth fixed dates, based on input from last week’s public meeting, the online survey, and anglers calling staff directly, staff are recommending 18 fixed dates, skipping weeks with a morning low tide that is lower than negative two feet. There were some recommendations from the public for a more conservative approach (15 fixed dates instead of 18), though the majority preferred 18 fixed dates. The ODFW staff recommendation is based on trying to balance all of those considerations of opportunity, quota risk, safety, etc.

Summer All-Depth Season: Opens Aug 5-7, then each Thurs, Fri and/or Sat until the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Initial quota = 68,351 pounds. Any overage taken during the Spring All-Depth fishery will lower the Summer All-Depth available quota.

2021 Halibut Season:

Nearshore: Opens May 1, seven days per week, inside the 40-fathom line, through the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Quota = 32,591 pounds.

Due to hi seas we have been forced to cancel our fishing trips for Thursday the 19th of August. Office hours will be 9-5 Thursday

We finally got a boat out for Tuna on Monday. The ocean was great, no wind and very little swell. The fish were pretty scattered so we didn't have very many multiple hook-ups. The grade of fish was excellent ranging from 20 to 30 pounds with only a couple of peanuts in the bunch. We produced three fish per person, they were big strong fish and everyone had a blast. Only three fish were caught casting swim baits, all the rest were caught on the troll. Everything we were dragging got hit except X-RAPs.

Coho are still biting pretty good, some days better than others of course and it looks like the quota will come very close to lasting through the 28th which is the last day of the season. Then we take a break until the 10th of September when the non-selective season opens.

Inshore fishing for Rockfish and Ling is still doing well. The Rockfish bite is consistent while the Lings are sporadic. Crabbing has picked up in the past week.

We had a long Leader trip out Sunday and they tore them up. Everyone on the boat limited on big Yellow Tail Rockfish (the Long Leader limit is ten) in under two hours.

Unfortunately we are getting a reminder of the power of the Pacific Ocean. We were forced to cancel today and tomorrow due to Big seas. (August 18 and 19)

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that is early compared to recent years). The quota is 120,000 fin clipped fish or until August 28th. The non-selective opens September 10th for each Friday, Saturday, Sunday through September 30th or until a quota of 14,000 fish are taken.

Coho Salmon were on the bite again today. Limit trips in both the morning and afternoon. A nice grade of fish were caught too.

The Rockfish bite was excellent also with limit catches hit the decks early. There were some Lings taken and crabbing was decent.

We had a Long Leader trip out that was outrageously good, limits for everyone on board including the crew. The fish were a mixed bag of large Yellow Tail, Canary and Widow Rockfish.

Just when we were getting excited about tuna the weather conditions are going to keep us inshore. Prevailing winds are not bring the fish any closer in good numbers and will make getting offshore to them difficult at best. At this time we are not making Tuna reservations online, call for info. Obviously this blows.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/04/2021

The past few days the Coho bite has been outrageous. Starting last weekend our boats have been bringing in limit catches, usually including fish for the crews as well. The grade of fish has been quite good too ranging from 5 to 8 pounds, some even in the ten pound range. We have taken 33 percent of the quota thus far.

Bottom fishing has been doing well also, limit catches of rockfish and good numbers of Ling Cod have been hitting the deck. Crabbing has picked up a bit but still remains variable from day to day.

Just when we were getting excited about tuna the weather conditions are going to keep us inshore. Prevailing winds are not bring the fish any closer in good numbers and will make getting offshore to them difficult at best. At this time we are not making Tuna reservations online, call for info. Obviously this blows.

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that is early compared to recent years). The quota is 120,000 fin clipped fish or until August 28th. The non-selective opens September 10th for each Friday, Saturday, Sunday through September 30th or until a quota of 14,000 fish are taken.


ODFW Staff recommended 2021 PACIFIC HALIBUT Sport Seasons: Officially adopted 04-23-21

Central Oregon Coast Subarea

Spring All-Depth Season:

Fixed Dates: May 13-15, May 20-22, June 3-5, June 10-12, June 17-19, and July 1-3.
Back-up Dates (available if quota remains): July 15-17 and July 29-31.
Quota = 172,244 pounds.
For the Central Oregon Coast spring all-depth fixed dates, based on input from last week’s public meeting, the online survey, and anglers calling staff directly, staff are recommending 18 fixed dates, skipping weeks with a morning low tide that is lower than negative two feet. There were some recommendations from the public for a more conservative approach (15 fixed dates instead of 18), though the majority preferred 18 fixed dates. The ODFW staff recommendation is based on trying to balance all of those considerations of opportunity, quota risk, safety, etc.

Summer All-Depth Season: Opens Aug 5-7, then each Thurs, Fri and/or Sat until the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Initial quota = 68,351 pounds. Any overage taken during the Spring All-Depth fishery will lower the Summer All-Depth available quota.

2021 Halibut Season:

Nearshore: Opens May 1, seven days per week, inside the 40-fathom line, through the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Quota = 32,591 pounds.

The Coho fishermen had a great day today. Loads of action on keepers and none-fin clipped fish too. They ended up very nearly limited and everyone had fish to take home.

Bottom fishing was excellent as well both morning and afternoon. Those that put in the effort were rewarded with limit or near limit catches on rockfish and many Lings hit the deck. Crabbing was good also.

ODFW data indicates we have taken 29% of our 120,000 Coho quota as of the 25th.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/21/2021

Due to skyrocketing fuel prices (we are paying $4.31.9 per gallon here in Depoe Bay and a boat won't go quite one mile on a gallon) and the increased costs of everything related to fishing ,Dockside has been forced to increase the price of our five hour trips from $90 to $95. We are holding the line on other prices at this time. The change is effective immediately but does not apply to reservations made prior to 07-16-2021.

The Rockfish bite has held up well while Ling Cod is variable. Crabbing has picked up somewhat.

Coho slowed for a couple days but seems to be picking up again. They are certainly a nice grade of fish for this early in the season. We are getting mixed reports from the boats this morning, some are doing better than others but as you know that is fishing. The trips aren't over yet either...

Looking at the ODFW data indicates we have taken 22% of our 120,000 Coho quota.

The Coho Salmon bite has slowed somewhat. It is not the lights out red-hot bite that we had been enjoying. We are waiting for the next wave of fish to move through. We are still getting action and quite a few non fin clipped fish that must be released.

Our boats fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod did well today. The Lings bit well (better than one per rod) and we had decent catches of Rockfish. Crabbing remains variable between 2-5 per person.

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

07/11/2021

The Dockside fleet has been having great fishing trips. Smoking hot Coho. Very good bottom fishing and the crabbing picked up today as well. All the Coho boats crushed it. Loads of action and limits of fish for everyone made for exciting fishing. The bottom fishing boats did what they did best as well. Good rockfish catches an occasional Ling Cod and decent (improved) crab catches.

The next opportunity for Halibut will be July 15, 16 and 17 ( Thursday Friday Saturday).

Retention of the nearshore complex of Rockfish consisting of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is prohibited as of June 1st, 2021.

Give us a call at 541-765-2545 or book online on this website.

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that is early compared to recent years). The quota is 120,000 fin clipped fish or until August 28th. The non-selective opens September 10th for each Friday, Saturday, Sunday through September 30th or until a quota of 14,000 fish are taken.


ODFW Staff recommended 2021 PACIFIC HALIBUT Sport Seasons: Officially adopted 04-23-21

Central Oregon Coast Subarea

Spring All-Depth Season:

Fixed Dates: May 13-15, May 20-22, June 3-5, June 10-12, June 17-19, and July 1-3.
Back-up Dates (available if quota remains): July 15-17 and July 29-31.
Quota = 172,244 pounds.
For the Central Oregon Coast spring all-depth fixed dates, based on input from last week’s public meeting, the online survey, and anglers calling staff directly, staff are recommending 18 fixed dates, skipping weeks with a morning low tide that is lower than negative two feet. There were some recommendations from the public for a more conservative approach (15 fixed dates instead of 18), though the majority preferred 18 fixed dates. The ODFW staff recommendation is based on trying to balance all of those considerations of opportunity, quota risk, safety, etc.

Summer All-Depth Season: Opens Aug 5-7, then every other Thurs, Fri and/or Sat until the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Initial quota = 68,351 pounds. Any overage taken during the Spring All-Depth fishery will lower the Summer All-Depth available quota.

2021 Halibut Season:

Nearshore: Opens May 1, seven days per week, inside the 40-fathom line, through the earlier of quota attainment or Oct 31. Quota = 32,591 pounds.

Happy Fourth of July! The Dockside fleet was on the bottom fishing grounds today. Most of the folks did very well though not many Ling Cod were caught. There were some nice Cabezon coming aboard though. Crabbing was a mixed bag ranging from 2 per person to 7. We had no salmon boats out today. There will be effort for salmon tomorrow.

Coho fishing Saturday was exciting. The fish arrived and the bite was fierce! Limit catches were the order of the day.

We were weathered out on all three days of the Halibut opener this week. The next opportunity for Halibut will be July 15, 16 and 17 ( Thursday Friday Saturday).

Coho salmon have finally arrived in Depoe Bay in numbers. The grade is surprisingly good for this early in the year too running about 4-8 pounds. The Samson finished up early this morning with limits of fish for all fishermen. Another boat got limits for all fishermen plus the crew.

Rockfish were definitely on the bite to this morning. Limit catches of Rockfish with a few Cabezon (they can now be retained). Ling Cod were hard to come by, only a few were caught. The crab catch varied from 2-5 per person.

We have been enjoying some great fishing for bottom fish. Limit catches of Rockfish for nearly everyone, Ling Cod bite much slower but we have been getting a few. Crabbing has picked up a little bit.

The Coho Salmon season has started with a whimper as opposed to a roar. It is the earliest start we had had in many years and the fish just have not arrived yet in good numbers. Consequently we have suspended our salmon fishing for a while. We feel they just need a bit more time to get here.

We have a few spots available for All-Depth Halibut for July 2nd and 3rd (Friday and Saturday). Give us a call or book online before they are gone. Results on the All-Depth Halibut fishery have been limits every trip.

The Rockfish bite had slowed down for a few days but has picked up very well again. There are a few more Ling Cod coming aboard too. Crabbing has been in consistent, some days 2 or 3 per person some days 4 or 5.
Salmon season has begun with a whimper instead of a roar but it is still very early, matter of fact the season started two weeks before it usually does so that certainly has an impact.

The weather has made Halibut fishing difficult to say the least. When we have been able to get out we have done very well. Due to the weather the fleet effort on Halibut has been low and and ODFW has confirmed the back up dates.

We were finally able to get another Halibut trip in. The weather early in the day was marginal making for a slow trip to the fishing hole. The seas did mellow out, they got all their fish including for Captain and crew. The ride home was soft as they were running with the swells.

The nearshore boats did well, starting slow for some but finishing strong with a good grade of Rockfish. Only a few Ling Cod were found. Crabbing was mediocre.

Opening day of Coho season was unspectacular, very little action and only one keeper. Tomorrow is a new day.

Red Hot Rockfish Bite Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

06/09/2021

The Dockside fleet limited on Rockfish early today. As hot as the Rockfish bite was, the Ling Cod bite was that slow with only a few being taken. Crabbing was decent with 4 per person.

The offshore forecast for Thursday and Friday are forcing us to cancel our Halibut trips for those days. Saturday the forecast looks fishable for halibut. The nearshore forecast is okay for Thursday and Friday.

Retention of the nearshore complex of Rockfish consisting of Copper, Quillback and China Rockfish is prohibited as of June 1st, 2021.

Give us a call at 541-765-2545 or book online on this website.

The Dockside Fleet is looking for personnel to fill positions as deckhands. Working as a deckhand can be rewarding for someone who enjoys fishing and the ocean. Applicants must be presentable and personable, able to interact well with the public. Pre-employment and random drug screens are required.


Great Salmon news:

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that is early compared to recent years).

06/07/2021

Saturday the fleet was out fishing for Halibut, Rockfish and Ling Cod. The Halibut fishing was very good with limit catches for everyone on board. We have space available for Halibut coming up this week. Inshore the fishing started slow on the morning trips and limits were hard to come by. The Ling Cod bite has been slow with only a few coming over the rail. Crabbing has been moderately good.

A weather system moved in Sunday and kept us off the water Sunday and Monday with swells of a winter storm caliber. The forecast for Tuesday is much improved.

Dockside Charters will not be open on Monday Memorial Day that we may observe the day and spend the day with our families before the season ramps up. Observing Memorial Day is very meaningful to us, remembering and honoring the memories of all who have served.

The inshore fishing boats today did very well on Rockfish taking limits and near limits for all participants. The Ling Cod bite was slower but quite a few were taken at the end of the day. Crabbing was just so so. One boat was offshore for the deep water Ling Cod. It was a good day for it, the marine conditions were good and the fish bit. They caught a great grade of Lings though not very many Rockfish. The deep water Ling fishery closes June 1st reopening in September. The Long Leader fishery remains open year round.

2021 Halibut


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS
"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/23/2021

All of our Halibut rips for Thursday, Friday and Saturday were limit trips. The weather was not the best offshore with plenty of wind but our guys got it done. Saturday the wind laid out in the afternoon and conditions got pretty nice.

We had a boat out Saturday fishing for Deep Water Lings. Thirty Lings later (a very good grade) and some Rockfish made for a great trip.

The boats fishing nearshore have done well. There is a tremendous amount of crab spawn in the water so people have really had to work for the Rockfish as a result. Those fish do love feeding on crab spawn...Crabbing has produced 3-5 crab per person.

Based on the new guidance regarding vaccine effectiveness, beginning May 17, 2021, we are modifying our policy regarding face coverings and social distancing.

The CDC and State of Oregon are no longer requiring face mask and social distancing by those that are fully vaccinated for outdoor activities. We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for everyone’s responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy. Dockside Charters continues to recommend that all guests, especially those who are at higher risk, wear a mask or shield.

CDC DEFINES
“People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series,
or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine.”

Our goal is to continue to provide a safe environment for your enjoyment and to provide a safe work environment for our employees, while following public health advice and applicable laws.


MID-SEASON BAG LIMIT ADJUSTMENT:

Yesterday we received notice from ODFW of a mid season adjustment on our Rockfish bag Limits. Effective May 10th, 2021 the Rockfish bag limit will be adjusted down by one fish, giving us a limit of five Rockfish per person per day. The Ling Cod limit remains at two, over 22 inches. Oregon fisheries managers made the adjustment based on record high fishing effort and catch rates in the month of April. The change is a proactive measure to keep us fishing while not exceeding our annual quotas on Rockfish.

The bag limit for Long Leader fishing remains the same at ten Rockfish per person per day. No Ling Cod may be retained on the Long Leader fishery.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

05/14/2021

High winds offshore have spoiled the all depth Halibut opening for us. It has been windy inshore as well but we have managed to get inshore trips in for Rockfish and Ling Cod. Crabbing has picked up somewhat to 4-5 per person.

MID-SEASON BAG LIMIT ADJUSTMENT:

Yesterday we received notice from ODFW of a mid season adjustment on our Rockfish bag Limits. Effective May 10th, 2021 the Rockfish bag limit will be adjusted down by one fish, giving us a limit of five Rockfish per person per day. The Ling Cod limit remains at two, over 22 inches. Oregon fisheries managers made the adjustment based on record high fishing effort and catch rates in the month of April. The change is a proactive measure to keep us fishing while not exceeding our annual quotas on Rockfish.

The bag limit for Long Leader fishing remains the same at ten Rockfish per person per day. No Ling Cod may be retained on the Long Leader fishery.

Give us a call at 541-765-2545 or book online on this website.

The Dockside Fleet is looking for personnel to fill positions as deckhands. Working as a deckhand can be rewarding for someone who enjoys fishing and the ocean. Applicants must be presentable and personable, able to interact well with the public. Pre-employment and random drug screens are required.


Great Salmon news:

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that ism early compared to recent years). The quota is 120,000 fin clipped fish or until August 28th. The non-selective opens September 10th for each Friday, Saturday, Sunday through September 30th or until a quota of 14,000 fish are taken.

We have some exciting news to share:

Captain Chris has upgraded the Outer Limits from a 43' Delta to a 50' Delta. He is hard at work installing a new state of the art electronics package, building a new bait station and adding pole holders and all the other things that will make it a first class vessel for our waters. It should be ready for service May 1st. Captain Chris will engage in all our fisheries, nearshore and offshore. More room, more comfort, more fun. Win Win Win!

The other big news is that Captain James, after years of running the six man boat Triumph has purchased the Samson. It is definitely a step up for Captain James and he has worked hard and long to earn it. James started as a Deckhand for Lars on the Samson a decade and a half ago eventually getting his Masters license and went out on his own with the Triumph. Now Captain James will carry on Lars's legacy on the Samson for safety, fun and personal service. We are pleased that the Samson will stay in Dockside's fleet with James at the helm.

These changes now give Dockside the largest fleet of Delta charter boats we know of. The Deltas have long had the reputation of the best boats to do what they do. They were designed specifically for use in the charter industry, maximizing size, comfort, sea keeping abilities with a well earned reputation for safety and tough construction.

We had great fishing in the nearshore waters, lots of Lings and Limits of Rockfish. The ocean was absolutely fantastic, no wind no waves no rain no problem. Crabbing was slow again. The boat that went offshore for Deep Water Lings struggled quite a bit. The bite was off early in the day then when the fish started to go on the bite the drift changed dramatically and the bite died again. When it was all said and done they caught 80 percent of the needed ling and 1/2 limits of offshore Rockfish. The conditions were just as nice offshore as they were inshore.

Tuna / Fishing Report:

04/28/2021

Only one boat out for Dockside today but they had a great day of fishing on a fantastic ocean.
The bite started off slow but built to a fever pitch producing limits of Ling Cod for everyone and excellent catches of Rockfish. Crabbing produced 3 per/person. The marine forecast looks very good through the weekend.

Give us a call at 541-765-2545 or book online on this website.

Great Salmon news:

ODFW has announced the Coho season dates and quotas. For our region the season will open June 12th (that ism early compared to recent years). The quota is 120,000 fin clipped fish or until August 28th. The non-selective opens September 10th for each Friday, Saturday, Sunday through September 30th or until a quota of 14,000 fish are taken.

We have some exciting news to share:

Captain Chris has upgraded the Outer Limits from a 43' Delta to a 50' Delta. He is hard at work installing a new state of the art electronics package, building a new bait station and adding pole holders and all the other things that will make it a first class vessel for our waters. It should be ready for service May 1st. Captain Chris will engage in all our fisheries, nearshore and offshore. More room, more comfort, more fun. Win Win Win!

The other big news is that Captain James, after years of running the six man boat Triumph has purchased the Samson. It is definitely a step up for Captain James and he has worked hard and long to earn it. James started as a Deckhand for Lars on the Samson a decade and a half ago eventually getting his Masters license and went out on his own with the Triumph. Now Captain James will carry on Lars's legacy on the Samson for safety, fun and personal service. We are pleased that the Samson will stay in Dockside's fleet with James at the helm.

These changes now give Dockside the largest fleet of Delta charter boats we know of. The Deltas have long had the reputation of the best boats to do what they do. They were designed specifically for use in the charter industry, maximizing size, comfort, sea keeping abilities with a well earned reputation for safety and tough construction.
