Fishing Report:

10/22/2019

The seas are coming down and we figure to get out fishing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Saturdays forecast is for large swells again so get your fishin fix while you can.

Crabbing closed for the season the 15th of October. Fortunately the crab were "dying" to get in the pots while they had the chance.

Remember that Dockside closes the first of November for six weeks. That gives us time to maintain the boats, the captains and crews and the office staff as well (therapy helps). It has been a productive year but it is time for a little break.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.

As you may guess from the photo Dockside won't be going fishing or whale watching today. Given the current forecast it doesn't look like we will be doing anything until the 23rd. We do however have Neptune putting a spectacular show. Right now the seas nearshore are forecast for swells up to 18 feet, they are all of that and even more.

We will have trips out for 5 hour bottom fish trips, 8 hour Long Leader and 8 hour Deep Water Ling trips as weather allows. We will keep you posted.

Evidence Of A Healthy Fishery

Fishing Report:

10/16/2019

We had a brief window of opportunity to get out fishing early in the week. That window has slammed shut with a vengeance with the arrival of wind, rain and large swells. The marine forecast doesn't look promising until next week. Hopefully it will moderate sooner but we are moving more into our late autumn/winter weather patterns so we will err on the side of caution.

We will have trips out for 5 hour bottom fish trips, 8 hour Long Leader and 8 hour Deep Water Ling trips as weather allows. We will keep you posted.

Jaws "Helping Himself" On A Long Leader Trip


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/14/2019

We had to pull the plug on todays (Monday) trips due to a cranky ocean. Not what we like to do but we must err on the side of caution. Tomorrow's forecast looks favorable and we just happen to have space available. Tuesday (tomorrow) is the last day for crabbing in the open ocean. It has been quite productive lately so don't miss out on your chance to catch crabs one last time. Wednesday the ocean is supposed to build to 13 feet in the nearshore waters. Thats a good day to stay home.

Sebastes Malinger (Quillback Rockfish)

Fishing Report:

10/13/2019

Well folks today Neptune was very angry. We have high seas running that far exceeded the forecast. We expect to get underway tomorrow if the ocean settles down a bit. We will see if the weather guessers get it right tomorrow. Tuesday the forecast looks better too. Wednesday things promise to blow up in a big way. Hopefully the seas/forecast moderate.

Fishing yesterday was good for inshore Rockfish, the Lings were on the slow side. We had a boat out for deep water Ling Cod also. They did come home with some very nice fish but not limits and those that they did get required a lot of effort. Fishing isn't always easy.

A Fine Specimen Of Black Rockfish (sebastes melanops)


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/12/2019

The Dockside fleet is out again on an incredible ocean. Very little swell and not much wind. The only thing to remind us it is autumn is a rather cool east wind. We have boats out in both the nearshore and out plumbing the depths for the deep water Lings.

Yesterday the nearshore boats had to work hard for their fish but those that kept the gear in the water and worked it did well. Crabbing wasn't as good as it has been for the last week but it was still worthwhile.

The Halibut boats did well. It was indeed a fishing free for all, you could keep anything but Yellow Eye, Not everyone got two Halibut but there were limit catches of Rockfish and varieties of fish not found inshore. Another great (but long)day on the water.

As for the marine forecast it is variable for the next few days. Sunday is building a bit, more wind and swell, back down Monday and Tuesday then things blow apart Wednesday with wind and a pretty major swell. Remember that is a forecast and is changeable this time of the year.

Great Ling Cod Fishing Today


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/10/2019

The ocean was really cranky yesterday but very nice today. The forecast looks good through the weekend.

The boats we had out today for Rockfish and Ling Cod did well. Limits of Rockfish and over a dozen Lings on each boat. The crabbing was outstanding today too. We even had to throw back keepers.

We have space available for 5 hour bottom fish trips and we have space on a long Leader trip too for Friday morning. We are even offering crabbing on the Halibut trip Friday as a last gasp effort for the year. Crabbing is an option on all of our trips until the 15th of this month. (Crab season will close the 15th). There is space available for some more Halibut fishermen too.

We have had some Deep Water Ling Cod trips out also. They have produced mixed results but it is still early in the season for that fishery.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip.

Fishing Report:

10/09/2019

Rockfish and Ling Cod Trips continue to produce well on the Rockfish. Ling Cod fishing remains slow, we are catching a few and some very nice ones at that but it is not a smoking hot Ling bite yet.

Dockside will be mounting our last assault of the year on the Halibut grounds this Friday the 11th. We still have space available and the forecast looks pretty darn good. It is an unusual opportunity with very few restrictions on what can be retained. Two Halibut per person plus Ling Cod and Rockfish can be retained, it will be a veritable free for all.

We are running Long Leader trips too with great success. Limit trips are what we have come to expect.

We have had some Deep Water Ling Cod trips out also. They have produced mixed results but it is still early in the season for that fishery.

A Few Ling Cod Were Snappin


DOCKSIDE CHARTERS

Fishing Report:

10/07/2019

Great fishing today on our boats. Everything we had out was nearshore, there was nothing offshore. All the boats were done on Rockfish by 9:30 giving us lots of time to work on Ling Cod. We did our part but the Ling didn't do theirs all that well. A few were caught but no where near limits. Crabbing for the past few days has been very good, anywhere from 8 to 12 per person. Crabbing season ends the 15th of this month so don't miss out.

We have an All Depth Halibut trip scheduled for the 11th (Friday) with space available. Here is your chance for a last hurrah.
