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.

Alien Invasion On The Outer Limits


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/16/2019

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.

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.

Bluefin Tuna Caught On An Albacore Trip, Bonus


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/14/2019

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

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.

Trophy Chinook


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/13/2019

The marine conditions are just about as nice as you could ask for. Small swells and very little wind. The forecast looks like more of the same well into next week. We can't remember weather this good for this long and we intend to enjoy it!

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.

Under The Influence Of Tuna


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/11/2019

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.

Really Vermillion Rockfish


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/10/2019

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.

The marine conditions inshore are really nice. Very little swell and virtually no wind. The offshore doesn't seem to be as good as forecast as it is fairly choppy.

Yup, Getting Some Lings


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/08/2019

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing did not disappoint today. Limits of Rockfish and good numbers of Lings on both morning and afternoon trips. Crabbing produced decent numbers of crab.

Coho fishing was slow today, short on action and retention. Fewer than one per rod. So it con tines to be slow.

The Long Leader fishing was Smoking hot again today. Limit catches of those big offshore Rockfish in nearly record time.

We have limited space for All-Depth Halibut on the 16th of August (Friday).

We did have a boat out for Tuna today. Results were a little disappointing at one and a half fish per/fisherman.

The marine conditions were absolutely as good as they could get both in and offshore. Very little swell and virtually no wind. The forecast looks much the same through Wednesday of next week.

Great Variety In This Kettle O Fish (tails of Ling Cod showing)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/07/2019

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.

The All-Depth Halibut has continued to produce well while the inshore fishery has not. We have limited space available for the all-depth coming up.

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.

No Doubt About It, He Has Tuna Fever


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

08/06/2019

Rockfish and Ling Cod fishing has been very good. Rockfish have been consistently on the bite with a lot of variety of species and for several days now the Lings have been back on the bite big time. Crabbing continues to be variable, producing 3-7 per person.

Coho fishing has been slow, not meeting our expectations for sure but if you don't keep gear in the water you will catch nothing...

Long Leader fishing keeps producing high numbers of quality fish. We always have high expectations of this fishery.

The Outer Limits had a good tuna trip yesterday in spite of rough seas. 33 miles out, three fish per person and a very good grade of fish. We have trips scheduled for the end of the week.
