Dockside's fleet did well on bottom fishing this morning. Most everyone limited on Rockfish, some folks got Ling Cod while others didn't even get a sniff but that is the nature of fishing. Crabbing did better with an average of 4 per person. The marine conditions were quite good and have gotten better as the day goes on. We have plenty of space available this week (Saturday is jammed) so call us and make your reservation at 541-765-2545

The All-Depth Halibut Thursday, Friday and Saturday was excellent. Thursday required considerable effort to find the fish. Friday and Saturday the fleet had an absolute lights out bite, limits for clients, captains and crews and home before 11:00 am with an excellent grade of fish. We do have space available Friday Only!

Another Stellar Day of Fishing
Another stellar day of fishing at Dockside Charters. The Halibut boats finished early with a very nice grade of fish. We do have just a couple of spots left for tomorrows Halibut. Call now! The inshore boats whipped up on the Rockfish easily and spent the rest of the trip looking for Lings. Only 4-5 Lings per boat but lots of shakers. Crab ranged from poor to the high side of fair (1-5 around). ...... Read More
