Bottom fishing for Rockfish and Ling Cod was good today, at least for the Rockfish. They didn't go on the bite at first but we finished strong. Ling Cod were slow again but there were a few taken. Crabbing slowed today, the catch was disappointing averaging just 3 each.

Salmon fish was painful today. We didn't get skunked but the Coho were elusive to be sure with just a few being taken.

We had no boats out for Halibut today.

The boat we had out for Tuna today did well, over 5 fish per person and they went only about 25 miles from home. The weather forecast for midweek to the weekend coming up doesn't look promising for offshore activity however.

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.
