Dockside Charters Report

After a break yesterday due to too much wind and a short frequency on the swell we were back on the water today. Conditions were much improved but the rockfish remained largely off the bite. The Ling Cod on the other hand were snapping like mad. Nearly everyone that put in the effort limited on Lings. The wind and swell mellowed out as the day went on making afternoon trips enjoyable. The Rockfish bit much better in the afternoon producing near limits. The forecast through the weekend looks decent for the nearshore, offshore waters not so much.

We had no Salmon boats out today. As of 7-13-20, 20.9% of the quota has been taken for the area from Cape Falcon to the Or./Ca. border. Don't wait too long or you will miss out.

The Online Reservation Service has been reactivated for your convenience.

There have been two more additions to the All-Depth Halibut openers. July 16-18 and July 30-Aug 1. Get your name in the hat early, we have had really good results with fish for all fishermen and a very good grade at that.

Good Day Out on The Water
The Dockside Fleet had a really good day on the water. Bottom fishing trips produced limit catches of a nice grade of Rockfish and many Cabezon hitting the fillet tables too. Crabbing produced very well, they are really begin to come in big numbers.  Coho salmon fishing produced good action but few keepers. It seems the bulk of them were OFTMs (one fin too many). We had one boat out for a Long Leader trip. The conditions offshore and the fishing were...... Read More
