The Seas Are Building


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report: 10/24/2021

The picture is an image of what is yet to come. The seas forecast for today and Monday are quite large (up to 30 feet). The rest of the week is forecast for high seas. In light of that it looks like Dockside is done for the season. We do always close the end of October and reopen the 27th of December.

This year the weather has shut us down early. We are thankful that we have had a good season inspire of having to navigate the Covid 19 obstacles. We couldn't have done it without all of you, our clients. We are looking forward to an even better 2022 season.

Thar Be Witches In Depoe Bay


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report: 10/18/2021

Today, Monday we had to stay home due to higher than expected seas. Disappointing to be sure but safety and comfort always come first. The forecast for Tuesday is markedly improved and in fact should be very nice with only 4.5 foot swells. we do have space available and this looks like our last best chance to get out on the water. 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.

Just a reminder that sport crabbing season in the ocean ends October 15th, this Friday so no crabbing after that until the 1st of the year.

We would also like to remind everyone that Dockside will be closed November 1st until December 27th, (Monday). We have had a good season in spite of the difficulties associated with Covid 19. We want to thank everyone for their support and understanding during this challenging year of closures, mandates and general uncertainty.

Gift cards are available and are great for that fishermen on your list.
We can sell them over the phone and if you call in November/December we will be checking voicemails periodically and will be able to take care of you.
