Fish Report for 5-31-2021
Memorial Day 2021
Noelie Achen ( Director of Operations )
Hope you have a great Memorial Day with your family and friends and remember those who served and are presently serving our country in the armed forces here and around the world.
We had three boats out fishing today but we did not leave till the 10:30 am hour as the fleet participated in the annual Fleet of Flowers Memorial a tribute to the armed forces and the fleet which leaves to go out into the ocean daily. It was a very small tribute today as it was not publicized for normally a very large crowd attends this event annually.
The picture to the right is the Coast Guard Helicopter dropping a wreath of flowers in the middle of the Fleet of Flowers boats this morning about a mile offshore from the Depoe Bay harbor entrance.
Good trips for rockfish but not a whole bunch of Lingcod today but the Black bass were biting on the inside reefs and the Canary and Yellowtail rockfish were biting on the outside reefs.
Crabbing remains quite slow right now but we should be seeing some improvement soon as historically June we begin to see more male crabs approaching the more shallow reefs. Lets all hope that begins soon.
