We had another great day of bottom fishing, good catches (mostly limits) of Rockfish and a decent catch of Ling Cod. Crabbing produced worthwhile catches, 3-6 per person.

Coho Salmon action picked up for the morning trips with just short of 1 fish per rod. The afternoon trip fell short of that but there were still some good quality fish taken.

Tuna action was hot. The conditions were good far, better than yesterday and 130 fish hit the fillet tables. Everyone went home with plenty of top grade tuna.

No Halibut or Long Leader boats out today.

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.
