Early reports from the inshore boats are positive. A good bite on Rockfish and good ocean conditions. One boat is done on Rockfish and is in the hunt for Lings now.

No word yet from the salmon boats today but fishing picked up yesterday a bit. Certainly not smoking hot yet though.

Long Leader fishing is producing awesome catches. Also a very weather dependent fishery. We have a boat out doing that today, we will keep you posted.

Tuna continue to hit the decks, reports this morning indicate a pretty "chunky" ocean. We will see how it turns out tonight.

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.
