Boat Limit Of Halibut


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report: 06/12/2021

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.

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). 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.

Red Hot Rockfish Bite Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Great Day On The Halibut Grounds


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report: 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.

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