Halibut Fishing

Daily Fishing Report 2015

Date: Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 07:21:43
Current Report:
Fishing has been really terrific lately

Just a quick note on the fishing report over the past several weeks where the Lingcod fishing has been red hot with close to limit catches on most of the trips in the past few weeks. Real nice weather has certainly helped out the cause and we have a good forecast clear thru the upcoming weekend. Crabbing still as it has been remains quite slow.

Current Report:
Sunday Lingcod

Just a quick note as the Lingcod fishing after a few days of good ocean weather returned to the type of fishing we expect this time of year with limits or close to Lingcod limit catches on all of our boats out Sunday morning. Also near limits on the rockfish as well.

Date: Saturday, February 14, 2015 at 12:08:25
Current Report:
Good fishing last three days

Excellent rockfish bites the past few days but because of moderate currents the Lingcod bite has been somewhat slow but one boat on Saturday was getting a little more then one per rod. Windy conditions on Saturday had the ocean a wee-bit nautical but the fish sure did bite.

Will begin daily fishing reports shortly after the 1st of March as we begin to get closer to spring.

Crabbing Report

Just a little update for those of you enjoying a little crab with your bottom fishing trip. Right now the crabbing is very poor as even the commercial crabbing out front of Depoe Bay this winter has also been poor. No reason to believe that it won't improve this spring into summer but for now not a good bet on success. We will keep you uipdated if and when that changes.

Good Lingcod and rockfish catch today

Heard from Captain Rick of the Siamez and it sure sounded like a good day. The day started out pretty chilly and I am talking about air temperatures. The fishing was not red hot but it was steady all morning and the boat got a limit of rockfish and also a beautiful limit of Lingcod for everyone. Good day....

Finally some fishing trips

After somewhere around three weeks plus of not so friendly ocean weather we got the perfect day to go fishing and it just happened to be a Saturday. Things tomorrow seem to be getting back to the not-so-nice ocean weather but for today it was beautiful. The fishing after a long wait for some folks who have been trying to get out for weeks was worth the wait with lots of fish biting in particular the Lingcod. You can tell by the guy in the picture above off the Mr Max as he shows of his two huge Lingcod he will be taking home today. As we mention before during the winter months, we will have a report when there is something to report. Today was a great day.

Daily updates when needed

It is that time of the year when things really begin to slow down and that daily updates become increasingly difficult to find something to report. This is what we call down here the off-season where we will be running trips when we have the folks wanting to go and when the ocean weather allows that to happen. When we have trips and are able to run them we will report them to you or any other fishing news that you might want to know about. Other then that we will begin the daily reports again March 1st, 2015. Remember, gift certificates no matter what the occasion are available year around by calling the office directly at 541-765-2345 or 800-445-8730. See ya in the spring 2015.
