Halibut Opener!

Both boats went out for halibut on the first day of the season yesterday. The ocean made for a rough ride and a fast drift, which is hard on some of our beginning fishermen, but the day went well overall. Both boats limited despite slow fishing, and the size of the fish grade was pretty good, but we'll be looking forward to larger halibut in the next couple trips.

This afternoon we expect the Sea Quell to drop some big Halibut on the docks after the Crackerjack brings home the bacon…err.. rockfish… Captain Jack should be able to take a picture or two for me to put up and get you all excited for the season!

Both boats go out for Halibut again on Saturday and I'll keep you posted on how the season shapes up this weekend. We still have a couple spots left for halibut trips over the next few weekends, so give us a call if you're itchin' to go fishin'!

Remember we're looking forward to the first Chinook salmon season in a few years opening May 29th followed by Coho retention allowed beginning June 26th. Check back in soon for more latest news from the Yaquina Bay Charters dock!
