Time flies when we’re having fun…

Tuesday The bottom fish were coming in the boat steady and then slowed down a little toward the end leaving a few folks just a couple fish shy of limits, but otherwise fishing was good and we had another day with a great variety of fish coming in. The salmon trip as usual caught a lot of natives that had to be released, but was able to snag several fin clipped coho and was just 4 fish shy of limits for the Sea Quell. At this point we are still recommending the 8 hour salmon as the best chance to limit out. Wednesday Tuna fishing was good again yesterday with the fish still about 50 miles with a few inside 45. The load of 9 was able to reel in 43 tuna for … Read entire article »

Tuna Dates

Serves me right to not have our bookings in front of me when I talk about this stuff… Along with a couple spots left on Wednesday, we do also have room on Monday the 3rd for Tuna. After that the next available date is the 12th unless they come within 30 miles so our 6 pack can get out there. Also, check out this picture from our Sunday salmon/bottom¬†combo¬†that our friend Bob Bohm sent us this morning. Very nice! And notice the fog… pretty much what the ocean normally looks like when it’s 100 degrees in the valley! … Read entire article »

Return of the Tuna!

Theeeeeeeey’re Baaaaaaaack!! They aren’t as close as they were earlier in the month, but they’re closer than they’ve been for two weeks. Our Crackerjack went out about 50 miles for the best fishing, but snagged a couple around 35 and 40 miles too. They brought back 27 long fins for today’s group of 9 (and remember we will not put more than 10 fishermen on the boat for tuna), so they each got 3 tuna per person (12 loins!). We have another trip for tuna on Wednesday with a couple spots left, so let us know if you want to get out there, otherwise we’re booked up for tuna for about two weeks. Call the office if you want us to check some dates for you! 541-265-6800 … Read entire article »

Fishing Lately…

Fishing has been fairly decent this week, but not the best. Lots of bottom fishing and salmon trips. Salmon was pretty hot beginning and middle of the week and then slowed down quite a bit as per its usual routine this year. If it follows the pattern we should see it pick up again within a few days. As you’ve seen crabbing has been doing extremely well in the ocean! We were blown away by our catches for three consecutive days. Crabbing in the bay, however, as we learned on Thursday is not quite as good. The tuna are finally back within range, so we’re going out for the long fins tomorrow for the first time in a couple weeks and hoping for good results! We have another trip lined up on … Read entire article »

Crabby Crab

We caught 128 Dungeness Crab on one trip this week! That’s a far cry from June when it was a struggle to get one keeper in 6 pots! We offer the option to add crabbing on our 6 or 8 hour bottom and 8 hour salmon trips or we have a 3 hour bay crabbing and a 3 hour whale watching and ocean crabbing combo trip. You can take your crab home and cook them yourself or we have filleters that will cook and clean them right at the dock for you! In other news, our next shots at tuna are this coming Monday and Wednesday! We have a few spots left this weekend on bottom fishing trips, but only a single spot on Friday and a single spot on Saturday … Read entire article »
