Rockfish and Lingcod continue to bite well, weather should be good through the end of the month. Salmon season begins Friday July 1st.

Rockfish and Lingcod continue to be very good. The weather looks good all week.

June 16th, 2016 7:56 AM
Deep water opened for Lingcod today and fishing was excellent. Limits of both Lingcod and Rockfish was the rule. More of the same ahead.

June 14th, 2016 5:56 PM
It was another great day for fishing in Westport, most caught limits of both Lingcod and Rockfish. Boats are very light loaded mid weeks. So, if you can get away from work, come on down. Deep Water opens on the sixteenth so we should have some opportunities to catch some bigger Lingcod.

June 10th, 2016 5:03 PM
Weather turned on us a bit today so it was a little rough making it hard to get all the Lingcod. It looks like it may be a bit rough in the morning tomorrow also, then it should get better throughout the day.

The ocean was real nice today and fishing was awesome. More of the same tomorrow.

June 5th, 2016 6:36 AM
Rockfish and Lingcod continue to like to eat the bait. The Ocean conditions are awesome. Mid-week fishermen are few so if you would like an uncrowded experience come on down.

June 4th, 2016 10:46 AM
Rockfish and Lingcod have been biting very well and the Ocean condition is cooperating also. Looks to be a great weekend.

May 30th, 2016 6:18 PM
Didn't get a chance to talk with any skippers today but it looked like everyone had big bags of fillets.

May 29th, 2016 7:00 PM
What a difference a day makes. Most boats did very well today with some very nice Lingcod and limits of Rockfish and the ocean was much nicer. Looks like High pressure is building in so fishing should be good this week.

May 28th, 2016 10:33 AM
The Ocean was miserable today, some boats stayed out and knocked out a limit of Rockfish, not much in the way of Lingcod. It will be better tomorrow.

May 26th, 2016 3:51 PM
Both Lingcod and Rockfish bit really well today. It looks like after tomorrow the ocean conditions will improve for the Memorial Day weekend.

May 21st, 2016 5:01 PM
The Ocean was a little nicer today but the Lingcod catching was still a bit scratchy, the Rockfish bit well though. Weather should not be a factor in the near future.

May 20th, 2016 5:12 PM
It was another tough day for catching Lingcod. I think it was the remnants of the low pressure system that went through yesterday. I am hopeful for the weekend though and the ocean is calming down.

May 18th, 2016 4:06 PM
Catching Lingcod was a bit slow today as we have a low pressure system coming in and all trips that I know of are cancelled for tomorrow. Friday looks much better and we will be back on the ocean.

May 15th, 2016 6:05 PM
Rockfish and Lingcod continue to be awesome. The ocean condition looks good too.

May 12th, 2016 7:08 PM
The directed Halibut season is closed and we have a small nearshore halibut (incidental) quota that should last a couple weeks. Now is a great time to come on down and maybe just maybe snag a Halibut too. The weather looks calm through the weekend. Lingcod and Rockfish are on the bite.

May 8th, 2016 6:50 AM
All Charters are cancelled for today due to weather and in agreement with WDFW. We will have one more day of the directed Halibut season here in Westport. The near shore Halibut area may remain open depending on quota remaining after Tuesdays poundage count.

May 3rd, 2016 6:04 AM
Day 2 of our Halibut season was awesome. The weather will keep us in on Wednesday. Hopefully we can get back out on Thursday.

May 2nd, 2016 4:52 PM
Opening Halibut day was a great success yesterday and lingcod bit too. Tomorrow looks to be another perfect day for the Halibut.

April 30th, 2016 7:02 PM
We had a little bumpy ride out this morning but the wind subsided a bit in the afternoon. Lingcod fishing was awesome and we even ended up with a new season leader. Halibut season begins tomorrow and weather for the charterboats looks good.

April 27th, 2016 6:18 PM
It was an excellent day on the Ocean. Fishing for both ling and Rockfish were good. Weather looks good for the next few days.

April 23rd, 2016 6:22 PM
We got out today and Lingcod fishing seemed to be really good. We weighed some dandies up at the weigh station. Some of which didn't have a derby ticket so they had NO chance of winning the prize.Tomorrow will be a no go as far as weather.

April 17th, 2016 4:58 PM
It's been a beautiful weekend here in Westport. Bottom fishing has been very good although the currents have been ripping, so getting down to the Lingcod has been an effort. Most boats are lightly loaded for the mid week and it looks like the weather is going to be fairly nice all week.

April 14th, 2016 4:39 PM
Looks like the Charters are going to finally get back out on the Ocean tomorrow. The weather looks good for the weekend also.

April 8th, 2016 6:02 PM
It was a little bumpy and windy out on the ocean today. The catching turned out pretty good though with boats getting close to limits of both Ling and Rock. This weekend it looks better

April 2nd, 2016 7:54 PM
It was another great day out on the big pond. Fishing was once again awesome and the first boats back with limits of both Rockfish and Lingcod hit the dock about 2:30. The ocean looks good for tomorrow with a slight possibility of rain.

March 30th, 2016 7:09 PM
We had a few boats out today. The weather was nice, the ocean was flat, and this fish bit like gangbusters! It was a great day at the coast.

March 27th, 2016 11:00 AM
No fishing today and it looks like tomorrow will be out also. Tuesday looks like a possibility.

March 26th, 2016 5:35 PM
We had good weather today but the current was ripping fast so it was hard to get down for the Lings. Tomorrow weather could be a factor for some boats.

March 20th, 2016 6:17 AM
Another good Spring day out on the Ocean. The Wind and rain came up earlier than expected but that didn't stop the fish from biting. Most boats had limits of both Ling and Rock. Weather will keep us off the water at least until Tuesday.

March 19th, 2016 5:23 PM
We had a very good turn out of fishermen today and most all were rewarded with a bag of rockfish and lingcod. The ocean was fairly flat and the wind was down too. Some of the boats got in a little extra bonus of seeing the Gray Whale migration in progress also. This time of season you have to keep a watch on the weather so when you see a break come on down, fishing is great.

March 18th, 2016 2:13 PM
The Ocean has calmed a bit and the charters that have been out have had good numbers of both Rockfish and Lingcod. This weekend looks good enough to go.
