Today (Saturday) the Dockside fleet erred on the side of caution. The swell was significantly more than forecast so we cancelled todays fishing trips. We are making an effort to salvage the weekend by having fishing available tomorrow. (We were set to close the office for the season Sunday). At this time we do have some space available so give us a call to make your reservation. The forecast for Sunday is significantly better than today. 

Dockside Charters will be closing for the season as of November 2, 2020 as we always do, reopening just after Christmas, December 27th. 

We are trying something a bit different this year though. The Surfrider will be available for 5 hour Rockfish and Ling Cod trips on Saturdays through November and December. The spots are filling fast so get your name in the hat.(The first Saturday, 11-7-20 is already full). All reservations for those trips must be made in advance and online @ Like all online reservations they must be prepaid and licenses if needed MUST BE PURCHASED before the trip at or a commercial outlet as the Dockside office Will Not be open. All fishermen with a confirmed reservation show up at the boat (moored in slip #1 Dock 3 at check in time, ready to go. Masks are still required. Fillet and VacPac is still available but as always are cash only.

Crabbing in the ocean is closed as of October 15th.
