Wet but the fish were really biting

As long as you had rain gear all was well as the fish did not seem to mind the wet weather as the crew onboard the Mariner Monday morning caught a limit of rockfish and came home just two Lingcod short of a total limit of those critters as well. One of the passengers onboard displays (above) one of his Ling's up at the filet station after the trip. Those onboard crabbing enjoyed a little better success today taking home 4- per person. Good Day !!

Nice day & good fishing

The Morning Star represented Tradewinds out on the bottom fishing grounds Sunday morning and the crew came home with a nice catch. The information we heard was very close to a rockfish limit and about a half limit of Lingcod like the one you see in the picture above. Did not hear any crab report but it has been a little on the slow side which it can be this time of year. That will improve as we get the thousands of commercial crab pots off the waters which is beginning to happen now.

Nice ocean Sunday produced some good fishing results

Both the Morning Star and the Mariner were out on the water Sunday morning and both had really good trips by the reports and had limits or close to limits on rockfish and had a really nice assortment of Lingcod as well. Crabbing was a little pokey as it sometimes is this time of year as it normally picks up by springtime.

We got 'er in

Went out this morning on a decent ocean but as it sometimes does it began to build during the trip. The Morning Star had a really tough crew who braved the elements later in the trip, came home a little early with just a few fish short of a rockfish limit and some nice Lingcod. This time of year you get out when you can and brave some ocean weather from time to time. The ocean weather is slowly however beginning to turn towards spring after a really tough winter.

Thursday fishing Report

The Morning Star got out on a really nice ocean and had reasonable success with the fish count. Reasonable today means a limit of rockfish as well as a limit of Lingcod. Great Trip!! March is just about a week away which is the official-unofficial start to the 2017 season and you will find our office open longer hours as we start running trips on the many days coming forward which will have nice ocean weather. To say the least, it has been a rough wise. Call our office directly @ 541-765-2345 on the reservation book if you want to get on the boat and start to replenish your fish freezer. See ya on our next trip.

Springtime fast approaching

Our office is open daily on good weather days on limited office hours and a good time to call us is after 10am in the morning. Our office will re-open full time daily beginning March 1st and all of our six boats will be available by the end of March. Right now the Morning Star and the Mariner are running fishing trips and whale watch excursions with the Sunrise, SeaSon, Mr Max and the Kimberly Ann sometime from mid-March to the end of March. As the weather improves as Spring approaches we will be gearing up for the 2017 season.

Tradewinds does not run offshore Halibut trips due to the cost of the trip for the fisherman and the 1-fish limit. We will be running inshore Halibut charters which opens June 1st. Tuna trips will be starting up very late June thru September and we expect to find out about any Salmon season we might have by mid-April. Bottom fishing as well as crabbing combos are running year around.

Hope to see you at Tradewinds in 2017.

Saturday morning February fishing

The Morning Star had a really successful fishing trip on Saturday morning (February 11th) as we finally got out once again on a nice winter ocean day of which there have not been very many the past few months. Things show hopefully signs of improving and we are hopeful as we get into the month of March and closer to Spring that ocean conditions will improve. We had a bunch of Lingcod onboard and just short of a full limit of rockfish for the folks on the boat this morning. We also brought home an average of 3 1/2 crabs per passenger a good score this time of year. Lets hope for good ocean weather in our future.

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.
