Fishing Report: 09/15/2021

ODFW announced changes yesterday to the Non-Select Coho Salmon season. Starting Friday the 17th the fishery is open seven days a week and will run through the end of the month or until the quota is reached. Some of the quota from the fin clipped season has been rolled into the Non-Selective season giving us just under 14 thousand fish to catch between the 17th and the end of the month.

Coho Limit For Paul


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

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.

Fishing Report: 09/01/2021

As of Friday the 27th of August Governor Brown has mandated wearing masks in outdoor areas where physical distancing cannot be maintained. This unfortunately applies to our boats.

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.
