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!

Early May bottom trip

Well the Crackerjack went fishing yesterday on a sporty ocean and the Sea Quell went out today.   Fishing started slow on Saturday but things turned around in a hurry with a good grade of black bass and some nice lings thrown into the mix.  As the weather got nicer so did the fishing!   The Sea Quell made short work of it today by slaying some great Blacks and then also picking up two cabezon and a couple more good Lings.

Windy Day In Newport

Its been pretty windy in Newport for the last couple of days.  Its too bad.  We're missing out on some great fishing right now.  In the last week we were only to get out after the bottom fish once.  But on Saturday March 27th both boats went out and caught some great fish. I hope the weather forcasts are wrong because if they aren't it looks like we will be tied to the dock for the next week. … Read entire article »
