Salmon/Bottom Update

Yesterday was the Coho Salmon opener for the Central Oregon coast and our Gracie K went out on a Salmon/Bottom combo while Crackerjack was just on bottom fishing. The Salmon bite was good, but there weren’t any keepers on the Gracie K before they changed over to bottom fishing. Some other sport boats have reported finding some fish yesterday though, so looks like fishing will be great for our next trip on Wednesday!

Bottom fishing has been a bit slow lately, but is producing some really big sized black and blue rockfish as well as cabezon. Yesterday we caught a big copper rock and just a couple ling cod.

Crabbing was WAY better than it’s been for the past couple weeks with the CJ bringing in 19 for 3 pots and GK keeping 47 from 7 pots.

Again, the tuna reports are starting to come in and it looks like the fish are about 70 miles at the closest and a little spotty there, so we’re guessing around a week and a half or so for when they’ll start to be good fishing inside of 60 miles. We go up to 60 miles on 12 hour trips, currently the first trip we have is on July 19th, but we have a boat available on the 13th, 14th, or 15th if you have a group of folks itching to go sooner! We only put 10 fishermen on our 43ft boats certified for 35, so we’re the smallest load in town outside of 6-packs.

Please call the office if you have any questions or would like to book your trip! 541-265-6800, 866-465-6801
