Lars Robison


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

11/30/2020


It is with profound sorrow that we must inform you of the passing of our longtime friend and business partner, Lars Robison. Lars battled cancer in 2019, was declared in remission but has succumbed to complications associated with chemotherapy.

Lars was literally born into the charter industry in 1957 (his father Fred owned the Jimco Docks). At age 18 he was the youngest at the time to be issued a Coast Guard masters license. He then bought his first charter boat, the “AHI”. Later he bought the Samson, a boat built by Grandy Yachts of Seattle. He later purchased a 50 foot Delta hulled charter boat also christened Samson. Lars also fished Alaskan waters, fished Dungeness Crab in winter off the Oregon coast and ran charter boats in Hawaii for a period of time.

Lars had a strong sense of civic duty and loved his community. He served 25 years on the Depoe Bay Harbor Commission, a decade on Depoe Bay Near Shore Action Team, many years on ODFW’s Salmon Advisory Committee and volunteered with numerous fisheries committees, management meetings. He made his boat available for Experimental Fisheries Programs and research contracts with ODFW.

Boats were Lars's passion. All boats. He loved to study the designs and construction styles and techniques. He was a walking encyclopedia of maritime knowledge. He could identify a boat instantly, tell who the builder was, what its design and handling characteristics were. He and a brother restored two Century brand vintage mahogany speedboats. A pair of rowboats and a kayak filled out his collection.

Lars founded Dockside with Jim Tate forty one years ago and has been active in the business including owning and operating his own charter boat. Lars experience, knowledge, love of fishing and willingness to be involved made him respected by his peers and fisheries managers.

Forever in our hearts and minds Lars, we wish you fair winds and following seas.

Lars Robison December 28, 1957-November 29, 2020

Fishing Report:

10/31/2020

Today (Saturday) the Dockside fleet erred on the side of caution. The swell was significantly more than forecast so we cancelled todays fishing trips. We are making an effort to salvage the weekend by having fishing available tomorrow. (We were set to close the office for the season Sunday). At this time we do have some space available so give us a call to make your reservation. The forecast for Sunday is significantly better than today.

Dockside Charters will be closing for the season as of November 2, 2020 as we always do, reopening just after Christmas, December 27th.

We are trying something a bit different this year though. The Surfrider will be available for 5 hour Rockfish and Ling Cod trips on Saturdays through November and December.

Friday was a good day on the water. The nearshore waters were fishable Friday but the offshore waters were not user friendly. But bottom inshore fishing was darn good as evidenced by the picture.

First Ling Cod


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/03/2020

The Dockside Fleet headed out this morning onto good seas with just a little chop on them. The boats fishing inshore did well with limits or near limits of Rockfish and a few Ling Cod for good measure. Crabbing averaged 4-5 per person.

One boat was offshore today but was forced back inshore as conditions deteriorated where they finished the day.

Coho Salmon has closed for 2020. The quota was taken in the first two days of the non-selective season.

Fishing Report:

09/29/2020

Rough weather has kept us in port for a couple of days but the forecast has moderated and things are looking good through Friday at least. Before the weather turned we were enjoying good fishing, but the crabbing dropped off quite a bit. It is still worthwhile though.

We have some space available for Halibut Friday the 2nd. Call and get signed up. ODFW is still allowing retention of incidental catches of Rockfish and Ling Cod.

Coho Salmon has closed for 2020. The quota was taken in the first two days of the non-selective season.
