Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/17/2022

Ocean conditions have been absolutely fantastic these last few days! The bottom fishing has been excellent this week with great catches of rockfish coming in daily and with good variety. Ling Cod have been doing well, some days they're bringing in quite a few and others they've been slower on the bite. Crabbing still is very good with averages of 4-8 per person!

The salmon season is still open and there's been a lot of action on these trips. The last few days we have been averaging about 1 keeper per person being brought in, but many fish lost/spit the hook out there. We expect the salmon season to remain open until the 30th as the quota has not reached its halfway mark yet.

We have Deep Water Ling Cod available this next Tuesday on the 20th! If you're looking to get offshore for the big ling be sure to reserve your spot now before it fills up!

We've had some great ocean conditions these last few days and the fishing in all fisheries has been great! Our bottomfishing trips continue to produce good varieties of rockfish and ling cod and the crabbing is still remaining strong at anywhere from 4-8 per person!

Our Deep Water Ling Cod trip was a great success yesterday, it sounded like our boat limited on those big offshore rockfish and got over half of his ling cod limit as well. Good size to them as well!

Salmon fishing remains pretty consistently good. These last few days our boats have been reporting lots of action with some boats limiting and others averaging 1 keeper a person. Just depends on the day! The season is open until the end of this month or until the quota is reached, whichever comes first!

Hungry ling!

"THE FISHERMAN'S CHOICE"

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/11/2022

The rockfish bite slowed down a bit these last couple of days, likely a product of the rough weather and colder ocean temps we've had lately. That should turn around pretty quick though, especially with all of this East wind we've been having! We were still able to bring in a few nice rockfish and the ling cod seemed to be heavier on the bite the last few days. Crabbing averaged anywhere from 3-5 per person, and good quality size to them as well!

We have an 8-hour Deep Water Ling Cod trip available this week on Tuesday if you're looking to get out offshore and target the BIG ling cod! We've got a few spaces left and will be running this trip through this month and next as long as the ocean conditions allow - Tuesday's forecast looks excellent for offshore at the moment!

The Salmon bite yesterday and today was pretty good, some boats today are reporting in at least 1 per person and others right about that range. They are still fishing though so we'll see what they end up with!

09/09/2022

Well, after a few days of pretty rough ocean conditions, our bottomfishing boats were able to get out this morning inshore and they did very well. Due to all of the wind we've had lately the water temperatures dropped quite a bit and our boats reported a great ling cod bite today! Tomorrow looks like the ocean conditions should be great for all of our fisheries going out, both salmon and bottomfishing. We have reached that time of the year where we will start to see a few rough ocean days here and there as we get into Fall, but as long as the ocean is nice we will continue to send trips out!

We are also taking reservations for our 8-hour deep water ling cod trips in September and October, be sure to reserve your spot ASAP as these specialty trips will fill up quickly!

Tuna / Fishing Report:

09/04/2022

It's been a great Labor Day weekend here in Depoe Bay! The salmon opener yesterday was on the slower side, however, what a difference a day makes. The Tacklebuster is on his way home with a limit of salmon for everyone on board! Sounds like our boats are reporting lots of salmon action out there as well.

Bottomfishing continues to remain consistently good with the ling cod and cabezon catches up and down these last few days with the slower currents and warmer water temps. We're starting to get into the Fall though when that ling cod bite will really start to pick up. Rockfish have definitely been doing very well these last few days though. Crabbing is still excellent with averages of 5-8 per person!

Beginning Tuesday, our Salmon fishing trips will be leaving at 6:30 AM and bottomfishing trips will be leaving at 7:00 AM daily, ocean permitting. We are also currently booking some 8-hour Deep Water Ling Cod trips offshore, which will also be leaving at 7:00 AM. Summer's coming to an end but some of the best fishing and weather is usually in September for us in Depoe Bay, so come on out and go fishing!

Tuna / Fishing Report:

08/29/2022

Ling Cod have really been on the bite these last few days with the cooler water temperatures we have out there. All of our boats have been reporting in with great catches of both Ling Cod and rockfish lately. Crabbing is still excellent at averages of 5-8 per person. Our bottom fishing trips continue to leave daily at 6:00 AM, be sure to reserve your spot while the Ling Cod fishing is good!

Unfortunately, the Tuna have moved way too far offshore for us to get to them due to all of the wind we've had this last week. The latest chlorophyll charts are showing tuna fishing water at least 80 miles offshore, and reports we are getting are that boats have not been catching any tuna inside of 80 miles. That being said, we are in the process of calling everyone scheduled for a tuna fishing trip this week - if you haven't heard from us yet give our office a call!

We received notice from the ODFW today that the limit on rockfish will be reduced to 4 per person beginning Tuesday, September 6th, and China/Copper Rockfish and Cabezon will not be allowed to be kept. However, this doesn't mean there isn't anything left to catch out there! We will still be able to keep Black/Blue Rockfish, Canary Rockfish, Tiger Rockfish, Vermillion Rockfish, Deacon Rockfish and of course Ling Cod! Luckily we have lots of different species of fish out there that we can keep, and we will continue to run our 5-hour bottomfishing trips daily in September, ocean permitting!

Speaking of bottomfishing, sounds like it was pretty good today. From what I heard from the boats it sounded like it was steady fishing all day with lots of rockfish being brought in with a few ling cod in the mix. Yesterday the rockfishing was great with boats bringing in limits or near limits of fish and crabbing still remaining excellent at 6-12 per person averages!

Remember, our non-selective salmon season opens up on September 3rd! If you want your salmon this year reserve now for the first couple of weeks of September, we never know how long that season will last and spaces are filling up quick!

Bottomfishing is still red hot out there with limits or near limits of rockfish coming in daily! There's a few more ling cod and cabezon in the mix lately due to cooler water temperatures, which is always a bonus at this time of year! Crabbing still excellent at averages of 4-9 per person.

The salmon bite was excellent yesterday with our salmon boat bringing in more than one keeper around per person! Tomorrow is the last day for salmon fishing for this season, before it closes and then reopens again in a few weeks on September 3rd for the non-selective season!

The tuna were waaaaaay out there yesterday, but our boat did manage to bring home a little over one per person. Very high grade of fish as well, with reports of a few 30 pounders in the mix. We are out there tuna fishing again today, we will see what they bring in!

Salmon bite yesterday was on the slower side again, and it picked up again today but nothing that was super spectacular.

Bottomfishing continues to be very consistent lately with boats reporting in with limits of rockfish or near limits daily. Ling Cod have been slow on the bite the last couple of days but we'll be getting some NW wind this week that should cool the water off and get them back on the bite soon. Crabbing still remains excellent at 4-8 per person!

Salmon fishing is up and down this last week, the last couple of days it was slow, and today the boats are reporting a lot of action out there! Salmon season closes soon on the 21st, but will reopen on September 3rd for the non-selective season. That season likely won't last long due to there being a small quota so if you'd like to get out, be sure to reserve for the first couple of the weeks of the season... and soon! Spaces are filling up quickly.

We have tuna fishing trips scheduled this next week, we will see what the weather does and how the fishing goes out there and get you all a report after we've run a few of the trips!

The salmon bite slowed down a bit for some yesterday, but for some boats there was lots of action as well. Salmon has been up and down this whole season, different action on these trips on a daily basis. This salmon season is getting ready to close on the 21st of this month, and then will re-open for the non-selective season on September 3rd. We are booking up fast for that second season so if you haven't reserved already, be sure to do that right away!

Tuna are still anywhere from 35-45 miles out. We do have some wind in the forecast for this next week, so we will be monitoring the offshore ocean conditions as well as the fish themselves over these next few days. Will keep everyone updated as we have more info!

Salmon fishing action remains steady with lots of action on these trips and fair amount of keepers being brought in each day. The keeper ratio versus the catch ratio continues to go up and down as we weed through the natives but everyone's having lots of fun on these trips!

The rumor has it that Tuna are getting closer, we will see what these next few days bring and hopefully plan on tuna fishing next week assuming we don't get any wind or weather that pushes the fish out. As soon as we know more we will keep you posted!

Rockfishing continues to be pretty consistent out there with boats bringing in very good catches daily. Yesterday the bite was good for some, slower for others, and right in the middle for the rest. Ling Cod were again slow on the bite but that's pretty typical for this time of year, we will have days where it's good and days where it's a little slower. Crabbing is spectacular right now with averages of 6-9 per person, we even had one boat limit out on crab yesterday!

The salmon bite has also been very consistent with lots of action on the trips, but as we are in the selective season, lots of natives are being caught and then released. One boat did bring home over one keeper per person yesterday though. As long as there is still action on these trips, we are doing good though!

The tuna have not quite moved in close enough yet for us to get to. We have scattered reports that there's a few fish out there, but still out of range for us. We are hoping in the next week or two they will be in close enough for us to get to. We will keep you all posted though!

07/28/2022

Our bottomfishing trips continue to be very productive with lots of great variety of rockfish coming in and a fair amount of ling cod and cabezon as well! Crabbing is still doing excellent with low end averages of 3-4 per person and high end around 8-9 per person!

The salmon bite has still been steady, they're still getting action on the trips and averaging about one keeper a person, with lots of throwbacks on the trips. Since we're in the selective season right now, all the natives do need to be thrown back. They're having lots of fun out there though, as long as there's action these trips are a lot of fun!

As the Halibut season comes to a close here in a few days, this was definitely a perfect way to end the Halibut Spring Season!

We had some action on our coho salmon trip today, sounded like 4 take downs, 1 throwback, and 1 keeper. Still on the slow side though, but hopefully those salmon show up here for us soon! They usually start coming in around July or so, we will keep you posted!

Bottomfishing trips were also very successful today, with boats reporting in good catches of rockfish with Ling Cod in the mix. Crabbing was anywhere from 3-6 per person today on all of our bottom fishing boats. Ocean conditions look great this week, we have trips leaving daily at 6:00 a.m.!

Crabbing improved quite a bit yesterday with averages from anywhere between 4-8 per person. We've had some strong current and colder water out there these last couple days which slowed the rockfish bite down a bit, but, in the alternative, the Ling Cod love these conditions so we've seen lots of them brought in lately.

Crabbing is still averaging about 3-6 per person, which is definitely a respectable number considering the price of crab this year. We have rockfish and ling cod trips available all through the weekend - we have limited availability so if you want to escape the heat and cool off a bit out on the water, reserve your spot ASAP!

We've got a bit of fog out there this morning - pretty typical indicator that summer is here in Depoe Bay. Though the current was a bit strong out there this morning, the boats are reporting a really hot Ling Cod bite today! Sounds like the rockfish slowed down some, but they're not having any problem catching ling. Not a bad problem to have! We've got a bit of wind tomorrow but the forecast for Friday through the weekend looks fantastic - it's supposed to be super warm everywhere this weekend so come on down to the coast and escape the heat!

Finally some dry weather in the forecast! After days of on and off rain, the weather forecast looks dry through next weekend and potentially beyond! The bottom fishing boats had a great morning on the water with limits or near limits of rockfish! The ling cod bite was a little slower this morning, but we're expecting the bite to pick up this week with this high pressure system coming in which often cools the water off. Crabbing has ranged from 1.5-4 crab a person, but anytime you get 1 crab it pays for itself! Dungeness crab are a high priced item right now ranking almost up there with fuel prices!

We're running bottom fishing and crabbing trips daily as well as Whale Watching trips! Book right here online or give us a call at 541-765-2545 to make a reservation. We're getting into the peak summer season and trips are booking up fast!

It's starting out to be yet another awesome day of rock fishing for us here... some of our boats have already limited out on rockfish this morning and they're on the hunt for some Ling Cod to go with them! Sounds like the bite was crazy busy first thing this morning. These last couple of days crabbing slowed down a bit with averages of 1-3 per person, likely a result of the Southerly we had come in over the weekend.

On Saturday, we were able to get out on our rockfishing trips, and they did very well with most boats reporting in with limits of rockfish. Ling Cod were all over the board, not red hot, but they still brought a few in. Crabbing is improving slightly with averages of about 2-4 per person lately. The ocean was too rough to get out on Sunday, but by Monday it had cleared up enough for the return of the annual Fleet Of Flowers Ceremony. Ocean forecast every day this week looks phenomenal, we have trips available every day!

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. Those that were fishing did bring in rockfish today, but it was a tough day. Luckily starting tomorrow the ocean forecast looks great through the weekend. 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 also have new apparel at Dockside! Shown here is our new Ling Cod design, we also have an awesome Gray Whale design as well. We have t-shirts, hoodies, and full zip hoodies available in four different colors. Come on down to our office and get your Dockside gear today!
