Want to go fishing this Saturday

Putting together a trip tomorrow morning (1/14) to go bottom fishing and talked to a friend who was out there three days this month and the rockfish and lingcod bite he told me was really good. Give our office a call probably after 10am this morning and get a spot(s) on the boat and get in some good winter fishing. Also heard the ocean weather is suppose to be really good by todays forecast.

Winter is coming & time to take some time off

Beginning now and thru the winter months we will try to report from time to time the happenings and any news on the 2017 season when we get that information. It has been a really good 2016 season as our vessels all had record years thanks to our loyal and new customers out there. We will see you at the trade shows next January thru March and will report on those as they get closer where we will be in attendance. The office will be open this winter on most days when the ocean is in good shape and when we have fishing and whale watch trips. If you have any questions you can ask them on the Trdewinds website informastion request link or call the office directly. Thanks again and see you in Spring 2017.

Current Report:
Rainy but good fishing

It was a very wet Sunday morning as it was that real heavy mist that seems to find its way even inside rain suits. The good news is that the fish bit really well as lots of rockfish were caught and in my observation from the office area we saw quite a good number of nice sized Lingcod as well. Crabbing don't mind the rain either and there were lots of them. Wet but a good day.

Current Report:
Good offshore fishing Saturday

Not sure of the fishing report for the inshore bottom fishing boats but did hear the crabbing remains really good with one boat getting close to a hundred crabs to devide up with the folks onboard. Our offshore boat came back in from the 600 foot stuff with a limit of Big Lingcod and a limit of Canary rockfish.

Current Report:
Some bad weather for a few days

Very heavy seas are with us here this afternoon and sounds like it might be a few more days before it all moves out of here. This is ceertainly the time of year when we get these quick hitting storms that hang around for a few days and then we get a few good days. Right now sounds like Friday into the weekend is looking better.

Current Report:
Deep water fishing on Sunday

Our 6-pac boat ventured out 15-miles to the offshore Big Lingcod spots this morning and came home with some really nice Lingcod but not a limit. They added a limit of Canary rockfish and the ones we get out there are really nice 10-pound fish. Did not heart results of the inshore fishing boats this morning.

Remember anyone wanting to crab the season comes to an end October 15th.
