Salmon/Bottom Update

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 … Read entire article »

Quick rockfishing trip

The Crackerjack went out for a quick trip for rockfish.   A family of five wanted the boat to themselves so we went out lightloaded.  The fish were biting really good.  We got 20 rockfish and 1 lingcod in about 45 minutes of fishing before the family called it quits because they didn’t know if they would be able to eat all of it.

Saturday Trip 5/7

The Crackerjack went out on an inshore Halibut trip Saturday as the Gracie K was tied up for an engine repair. The 10 hour trip didn’t get any Halibut because the drift just wasn’t cooperating, but Capt. Jack did bring back tons of big rockfish and a couple awesome lingcod. Crabbing was poor again and has been lately, but everyone was in good spirits and went home with lots of fish! … Read entire article »
