I don't really know how to make this prettier than it is. The ocean is calm and the fish (rockfish and lingcod) are biting. It seems like we had a lot of people early in the Spring when the ocean was Knarly and the fish weren't really biting, where are all those people now, where have they gone. Sounds like I could make a song out of this.

Fishing once again was excellent today. The boat I checked had limits of rockfish and ling and one halibut exactly like the boat I checked on yesterday. The ocean looks good for the upcoming weekend. Come on down and take your holiday in Westport.

The ocean is calm fishing is great and it looks like the weekend will be awesome too. The boat that I checked had limits of both rockfish anf lincod and a halibut too. Eleven more days until the hatchery Chinook season opens.

Bottom fishing continues to be very good. The ocean is in good shape too, come on down and put some good white fish on your dinner plate.

Rockfish are catching good as well as Lingcod. The ocean is nice and looks to stay that way through the weekend.

Rockfish and Lingcod are doing well and the ocean was nice.

Halibut fishing was very good today for the charters not many private boats out. Lingcod did well also out in the deep.

May 11th, 2015 2:33 PM
Lingcod and Rockfish both bit well today.

May 10th, 2015 5:42 PM
Most everyone got their Halibut today and lingcod fishing was a bit off due to the rough ocean conditions later in the day.

Lingcod fishing was very good and the ocean was beautiful.

May 8th, 2015 5:18 PM
The Lingcod seem to be on the bite today and the ocean looks good through the weekend.

Lingcod fishing has picked up and it looks like the weather through the weekend may be good.

About half the charters got out today, maximum ebb tibe was just about the time we were heading out. Some boats got out early then some had to wait until after the ebb. Halibut did bite though and most everyone got there Halibut. Lingcod was a little off the bite.

Little rough getting across the bar this morning. Fishing was good and the lings picked up a bit. Tomorrow is opening day of Halibut, the bar will be snapping in the morning but should settle later.

Lingcod fishing is picking up a bit. It looks like weather will cooperate this weekend at least for the Charter boats. Might be a bit bumpy for the smaller boats. If you are a private boat I recommend keeping a very close eye on the weather for this weekend.

I think the weather turned out better than the forecast today. Rockfish have been no problem but the Lingcod have been good weather dependent. So today was an okay day with close to one Ling per person.

April 25th, 2015 4:13 PM
The weather cooperated enough today that we got out and the ocean was fine. Lingod are still off the bite due to recent ocean conditions. Tomorrows weather looks a little bumpy, so a few boats may get out but it won't be calm seas.

April 24th, 2015 10:45 AM
No boats out yesterday and today due to weather. Looks like the weekend will be a go, so I will give you updates as we progress.

April 18th, 2015 5:14 PM
The weather was much improved today and along with that went good fishing although the Ling were still a bit off the bite. Tomorrow looks good.

April 17th, 2015 5:10 PM
Bar conditions hindered some of the charters this morning. It looks like the bar is going to be rockin' and rollin' tomorrow too. Please keep your seats while crossing the bar. Once out in the ocean things should get better. We have had limits of rockfish and the ling have been a little tougher to get although we have weighed some dandys at the derby booth.

April 16th, 2015 5:13 PM
The ocean was still a bit rough today but we did get out. The rockfish bit as usual but the Ling are still off the bite and this can be attributed to ocean current and chop. If you didn't get across the bar early you would have to wait until the flood. So it was an extra long day for at least one boat. Better weather is forecast for the weekend.

April 15th, 2015 8:14 AM
The ocean is calming a little now and boats are getting out at least through the weekend. The Ling bite was off a bit today. I think that is due to ocean conditions. Things should improve through the weekend at least.

April 13th, 2015 4:00 PM
Weather is still affecting our ability to get out on some days like today and tomorrow. Better days are coming and when they do, you can bet fishing will be great.

April 11th, 2015 3:47 PM
No boats out today, Mother Nature is still dictating. The days we do get out rockfish and Lingcod have been very good. Our derby fish for the week was 33 pounds 4 ounces. Stay tuned! Better weather is coming and it is going to be an awesome season.

I apologize to you all that have been waiting for a report here. Mother Nature is playing games with us so far this season and only a few boats have made it out. Seems like she likes to kick up her heels on the weekends. Lingcod and Rockfish have bit well when we are able to get out. looks like the next 4-5 days the weather will be better. We are fishing in the typical spots northwest. I will put up another report next weekend then try to go daily after that. Thanks for your patience, and get ready for another great season of Ocean fishing
