Week ending July 13, 2014. Salmon fishing continues to be red hot! Catching a nice mixed bag of Chinook and Coho. Some boats are returning by 930am with full limits. Contact us to make your reservation so you don't miss out on this years exceptional return. Bottom fishing is still open and some nice Sea Bass and Ling Cod are still being caught. Halibut is still open! Contrary to a rumor that it is closed. Halibut is open from Thursday through Sunday for all depths until the quota is reached. Boat limits have been the norm. Early Tuna reports from sport boats are reporting catches, and we have processed several. Live bait is available here in the harbor. Get your reservations as soon as possible to take advantage of this fishery. Early reports are indicating we should have a great Tuna year.
