Saturday 8-hour Trifecta

We had a beautiful ocean this morning for the Salmon, Bottom fish Crab Tri-fecta as TW calls it.  After a few days of really good salmon fishing today was by most standards "SPOTTY". We ended up with 5-Coho salmon and one really nice King salmon.  We had another right up to the boat and it got wrapped around a down rigger wire and we lost that one.  Otherwise maybe another 4-5 bites and that was the four hour salmon half of the trip. 

The bottom fishing went fast and furious with a boat limit of rockfish in about an hour and a half.  We then fished for another 90 minutes for Lingcod and could only catch throw backs. 

The crabbing was pretty good boating somewhere in the vicinity of 30-male crabs.

The big disappointment of the day was one lady onboard caught a small Halibut (about 10-pounder) in a very unusual spot in shallow water south of Depoe Bay.  We got the hook out of the fishes mouth put him on the deck to give him a headache and he was the perfect size to slip right thru the scuppers of the boat.   UGHHH!

If you would like to go fishing with us please BOOK ONLINE or call (541) 765-2345.
