Coho salmon fishing was slow both Saturday and Sunday but the Dockside boats did catch fish. Though the opening weekend of the non-selective salmon season was unspectacular we had a great ocean to be out on. We are looking forward to next Friday, Saturday and Sunday when we get to give the Coho another try.

Rockfish and Ling Cod were very good over the weekend. Limits of Rockfish hit the decks early leaving plenty of time to focus on Lings. Crabbing produced better numbers this weekend. 5-7 per person.

Tuna fishing was good for one boat, producing 3 plus fish per person. The other boat we had scheduled had a mechanical problem and had to cancel before leaving the dock, so not so good for them. Very disappointing of course.

The Long Leader fishery is still awesome and producing limit catches. Not much more to say about that.

ODFW has informed us that the all-depth fishery for Ling Cod and Rockfish will open September 3rd rather than October 1st. This is because our allowable mortality quotas for Yellow Eye Rockfish are in good shape for the year. Because of that Rockfish and Ling Cod may be retained along with Halibut in the all-depth fishery. Unfortunately Ling Cod may not be retained on the Long Leader fishery because of the 10 fish bag limit on the Long Leader.

We also got notice from ODFW that Halibut is going to a two fish per day limit due to the high amount of quota left on the table. Unfortunately we have NO space available until the 27th of September providing there is quota remaining.

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.
