We think the whales and the fish in the ocean at least around Depoe Bay went on strike today.  Fishing was really tough this morning and the whales did not show up at all this afternoon especially strange after the last few days has been really good.

Some really nice Lingcod were caught but the usual rockfish (Blacks, Blues & Canary’s)  were strangely absent this morning.  Talk about hard working skippers.  They were all all over the place up north trying to find biting fish and we found some but not like we are used to.  One good thing was the crabbing as it was really terrific today.(

As everyone says once in a while tomorrow is another day.

(Offshore Halibut Day)

We also had a Halibut boat out today and the Kadaho came home with a limit of nice “flat fish” and back in port by 1:30pm far ahead of the other vessels out today.  They ranged in size from 32 inches to 43 inches. Tomorrow’s trip has been cancelled due to some weather approaching the coast by mid day which is bringing a growing swell with it.

Two boats out Thursday morning and both had to go up to the Lincoln City reefs to find the biting fish as closer to home fish were lazy at first light.  When we found them though up north they lit off fairly well as both boats got there limits of rockfish and there were some nice Lingcod in the mix as well.
