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 »

Capt. Art brought back 6 salmon and a pretty good load of bottom fish from his Salmon/Bottom combo trip today. Salmon has been a little hit and miss, as yesterday we only got one keeper, but today was a nice day so let's hope it stays that way! The Crackerjack had a half day bottom fishing trip today and did well, almost got limits for everyone and brought in a bunch of crab too! Capt.

Busy week!

 Alrighty folks here's a run down of this week's activities at YBC: We had one good Salmon day on Monday on the CJ and then the next days were just like old times, a.k.a. slooooow. Some boats went back to our exact spot as Monday and got nothing the next day, so those salmon are being quite elusive. There have been a few caught here and there, but no one is posting big numbers or even nearly an average of one fish per charter customer. We are still keeping our eyes out and hoping there will be another good day that will stick around a little longer! Bottom fishing was a little slow this week as the water temperature remains a bit cold for them. When the water gets cold the fish … Read entire article »
