We got out on the water again and the big females have arrived, we were able to get five into the boat and lost one. Can’t wait for my next outing!!
Fishing has been spotty, only getting a fish or two daily. I think it is because of the amount of fresh water and the low river temperatures so far this season. With the warmer temperatures predicted I am hopeful that we will start seeing better numbers in the near future. Here is one we got yesterday, 19# and 35 inches, a great catch!
Striped Bass are here!!
Took Brent and Izzy out for a morning trip but we had a couple of seals working our boat. We hooked five buy only got two in the boat. Took them out again for an evening trip and we did much better (no seals), Izzy couldn’t make it to the end, he was worn out!!
Took my son out fishing for his birthday and we got into a few, was a wonderful evening of fishing!!
I was able to get some clients out crabbing in Charleston May 3rd and 4th, they ended up with 79 Dungeness and 20 Red Rock crab and we had a great two days. Then on the 20th and 22nd I got some clients out crabbing in Charleston again, but due to the very big tides the crabbing was a little slower, we got 9 Dungeness and 19 Dungeness/4 Red Rock respectively. On the 21st of May I was able to get a group out striper fishing but they just weren’t in yet and we got skunked, it will pick up soon.
Here’s a couple pictures of the crabbing trip on the 22nd:
So, I haven’t posted anything this year and I apologize! I have been so busy fishing I just didn’t make the time. But, I think I have finally figured out the Striped Bass fishery which is where I spent all my time this year. There will be a new page for Striped Bass soon! Here is some photos of my year, the rest will be in my gallery.
We had some salmon come in this year and the fishing was good though we were hoping for a little better. There were tons of jacks in the fall season and the coho were numerous. As always we are hoping next year will be even better.
Thank you to everyone who fished with me this year and I hope to see you all again in the future!!
This has been a tough year for everyone! Between massive fires and the Covid epidemic many of my returning clients couldn’t make the trip this year. I missed spending time with all of you and look forward to seeing you next year!!! But thanks to a few friends and local businesses I still had a pretty good season. I want to thank Shannon Keys, Rick Howard, Tony’s Crab Shack and Prowler Charters for all the referral’s that kept me in business this year!! To everyone that crabbed/fished with me this year, I thank you and hope to see you all again!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to each and every one of you!!
I got pretty busy in the fall, not only with clients but learning a new river to give my clients a better chance to take home those prized salmon. Needless to say I didn’t post daily pictures as I try to do so here a few new photo’s.
As you can see I will be adding Striped Bass to the menu soon, it’s a blast!!
Springer’s have started coming in following the last storm. Spring Chinook salmon are being caught on the Rogue River, they are fresh out of the ocean, bright and full of fight. The water levels and clarity are just about perfect, now is the time to get your trip in. Here is a beautiful #23 wild springer we had to release yesterday.
Got out today to check the river and fishing in general. Water temperature was only 44-45 degrees so there was little activity fishing. There have been a few steelhead caught over the last few days but we are still waiting for the springer’s to arrive. With all the snow we are getting up high we should have great water to bring them in. I am hopeful it will be soon! Get with me to book your spring salmon trip today 541-347-6338.
