Fishing Report:

07/06/2020

We have been blessed with some incredibly nice weather here in sunny downtown Depoe Bay for several days now. The long range forecast is looking good for the next week. Now would be a great time to get out for some fishing. We have space available for a Long Leader trip Wednesday. Our Long Leader trip last Saturday was as good as it gets. Limits of big Rockfish (Long Leader trips are a ten Rockfish limit) and crew fish too, plus good crabbing.

We have space available for All-Depth Halibut on Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th, possibly the best weather days you could have for Offshore Halibut fishing. Call us to get your spot.

After a couple days of slow fishing for inshore Rockfish and Lings the bite exploded today on the Rockfish. We finished up on Rockfish in short order then spent the rest of the time looking for Ling Cod. The Ling Cod remained elusive. A few were taken but nowhere near limits. Crabbing continues to be very good.

Coho fishing remains slow on keepers but the action has been fairly good.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

They Are Really Smiling (129 Crab in the tubs)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

07/04/2020

The Dockside Fleet had a really good day on the water. Bottom fishing trips produced limit catches of a nice grade of Rockfish and many Cabezon hitting the fillet tables too. Crabbing produced very well, they are really begin to come in big numbers.

Coho salmon fishing produced good action but few keepers. It seems the bulk of them were OFTMs (one fin too many).

We had one boat out for a Long Leader trip. The conditions offshore and the fishing were both extremely good. Limits for all and great crabbing to finish it off.

By anyones standard today was a great day on the water. The forecast for the next week looks great with small swells and little wind.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

Very Unusual Cabezon Variant (Could we call it the Blazing Cabezon?)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

06/28/2020

Today (Sunday) the ocean turned out to be too cranky to go out on. Discretion being the better part of valor plus client comfort being paramount, we stayed home. Yesterday we had trips out morning and afternoon for bottom fishing. The morning trips produced limits or near limits of Ling Cod but the Rockfish were way off the bite. The afternoon produced excellent catches of Lings and the Rockfish bite lit off again making for a strong finish to the day. Crabbing produced good numbers of crab for all the crabbers. We had no boats out for Coho Salmon Saturday as the water temps were not looking good for them.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

Fishing Report:

06/20/2020

Our boats fishing the inside waters today had to work for what they got. Both the morning and afternoon trips produced about the same, in the range of 3/4 limits or a little better. The Ling Cod bite was also slow but a few nice ones hit the deck. Crab counts averaged 4 per person.

The Halibut boats offshore did very well. Conditions were pretty choppy because of southerly winds but everyone got their fish and they were a good grade too. The size ranged from 36 to 45 inches with only a few fish under 40 inches, all in all a great day of halibut fishing. The next All-Depth Halibut opener is July 9th, 10th and 11th. Call us soon to make your reservation.

Fishing Report:

06/18/2020

Choppy seas and plenty of wind greeted the Halibut fishermen today but they were able to tough it out and get limits for all. They managed to get home about one o'clock with an excellent grade of fish. Conditions for tomorrow's trips should be better with less wind forecast.

Boats fishing the nearshore did well on Rockfish while Ling Cod were largely elusive. Crabbing was mixed with one to three per person, down from what it has been. Conditions nearshore were decent today but are forecast to be better tomorrow.
