Pacific sea bass fishing has been excellent. All of the media hype concerning the dead zone is gross exaggeration, and in fact we've been bringing in tons of fish and crab just this past week - the best it's been in years! They've been doing great on ling cod as well, bringing in some as large as forty-five pounds! The crabbing season is coming to an end (August 14th) but by no means has it slowed at all. Average crab per angler is between eight and twelve.
The coho salmon season has closed temporarily, however it will be re-opening on September 1st-6th. The chinook aren't quite in yet, though some twenty pounders have been caught. Book your trip now before it's too late!
It's still a bit early for tuna fishing yet, as they have been moving sporadically between fifteen and sixty miles out, however we will be booking our twelve hour trips later this month and through September. The next halibut dates are August 18th-20th, and limits have been caught on each trip we've taken out. Both tuna and halibut are specialty trips so book as soon as you can!
Whale sightings have been very successful lately. Our resident gray whales have moved back into the area and four to five of them are spotted daily, each time putting on some good shows for our vessels. They too are thriving and feeding well, despite all the talk of a dead zone in our area. Whale watching trips depart daily approximately every hour and a half throughout the day beginning at 11:00.

Bottom fishing has been doing great right now! Limits of bottom fish and ling cold are caught almost daily, and crabbing has been doing just as well. They're bringing in hundreds of crab a day, so book now before the crabbing season ends August 14th.
Coho salmon fishing is still a bit slow, but they are still bringing in a few on each trip. We're hoping it picks up soon, before the end of the season (July 31st).
The tuna seem to be moving in, though it's a little early for them. They should be close enough for us to catch more towards the end of this month and into August/September.
Our next trips for Halibut are August 4-6. They have been catching good sized halibut when we've been able to go out, almost always catching their limit under twelve hours.
