Bottom fishing and crabbing

The ocean weather report was another bad one with lots of wind but somehow we got thru the entire morning trips without a breath of wind.  The ocean was really nice out there this morning with maybe a 3-4 foot swell. The only wind they had was after we got back into the harbor and it was breezy in there.  Go Figure!!

Anyhow the shallow water fishing was pretty good this morning from all reports with lots of Black bass on the bite.  The mid-water rockfish were slower to bite with around 4-5 per person but the Lingcod bite out there this morning was really good.  For the 2nd day on a row the boats battled a 12.5 knot plus current or possibly it would have been a better rockfish bite out there.

Crabbing was by all reports very good once again.

Monday August 24th Fishing Report
8-24-2020
The forecast for this morning was growing swell in morning, winds 10-15 with gust to 20 and rough seas.  None of the above happened and we had a very nice sunny ocean to fish on.  The boats that reported put on some nice Lingcod and the rockfish bite was only a moderate catch but everyone went home with some nice fish. Crabbing remains excellent with most of the crabs now fully grown back from the molting and not many soft ones being harvested right now. ...... Read More

Mid-Water Bite Has Been Good

The inside fishing in the more shallow waters Sunday was quite slow with not many fish caught from the boats reporting.  The real show was in the mid-water bite where limits of fish were caught and a really nice assortment of Lingcod with quite a few over 28-inches in length.  Crabbing was also very good with around 10-per person from the reports heard. ......
