Gearing up for the season!

Hey all, hope you’re doing well! We are getting ready for the season ahead and hearing good things about salmon again this year! Biologists have been noting an abundance of bait fish in the ocean this Winter which should attract lots of salmon (and hopefully Tuna!) to the area this Summer. We anticipate the Coho season opening in mid- to late-June, and retaining 3 per person may be a possibility again this year! The all-depth Pacific Halibut season will open in May, but the official dates will not be announced until March. We are currently taking tentative reservations assuming the season will begin on the second Thursday of the month and run Thursdays-Saturdays alternating weekends until the quota is met. Captain Jack will be representing Yaquina Bay Charters at our booth at … Read entire article »

We want your opinion!

Hello! I have some great ling cod pictures to post for you soon, but first I want to put out a question to all of you… This past March we attended our first ever sportsman show and chose to go to the Idaho show in Boise because of our large Idaho customer base and its economical benefits. This year we are tossing around the idea of either staying with the Idaho show in Boise¬†or switching it up and trying out the Central Oregon show in Redmond. If you have any suggestions for us, or a preference of where we go we’d appreciate your opinion! The Portland show is awfully expensive to attend, and being a small business we try to keep our costs low, but any opinions of where the best show … Read entire article »

Hello, October!

Well folks, the Pacific Salmon season is officially over! We had a great summer fishing for silvers, and we’re looking forward to next year’s opener in June! The tuna are also pretty far offshore now, so we’re no longer taking out trips for albacore. The tuna kept us on our toes this year and lasted a long time! We’re hoping next year will bring more of the same and maybe a little closer to shore like in 2007. If you want to get on our call or email list for when the tuna show up next year, give us a call or submit your name and email on our info request form on our website. Both boats are out bottom fishing today looking to bring back some blackies and lings. Bottom fishing … Read entire article »

Windy Weekend Ahead

Here we are approaching the end of September already! Bottom fishing is nice and steady, Salmon season is still open but they aren’t really around, and the Tuna are still hanging out around between 40-60 miles offshore! We haven’t had this much to fish for at this time of year in a long time! Unfortunately the weather is looking pretty wicked the next couple days, but we’re hoping we can at least get in our morning bottom fishing trips before winds pick up in the afternoons. Check out this load of tuna from one of the boats here in the marina a couple days ago! Anyone want to go get some?!? … Read entire article »

Tuna, Rockfish, and Salmon still open!

Last weekend was pretty uneventful as the weather forced some cancellations, but it gave us a all a little break and chance to catch up on some Z’s, so we’re ready to get out there everyday again as the weather allows! We’ve had some bottom fishing and salmon trips this week on the Crackerjack and Sea Quell. Bottom fishing has been good and steady while salmon is continuing to be slow and unproductive even though they seem to be all around. The tuna are still sticking around and are out about 35 miles, so we’re going for them every change we get. We have a trip going out on Saturday that needs a couple more, so let us know if you’re interested! … Read entire article »
