Dockside Charters, Fishing Report 10/22/19
Tuesday, October 22, 2019

The seas are coming down and we figure to get out fishing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Saturdays forecast is for large swells again so get your fishin fix while you can.

Crabbing closed for the season the 15th of October. Fortunately the crab were "dying" to get in the pots while they had the chance.

Remember that Dockside closes the first of November for six weeks. That gives us time to maintain the boats, the captains and crews and the office staff as well (therapy helps). It has been a productive year but it is time for a little break.

Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more room to fish of course, providing you with a premium trip. Online reservations are an option also, you can make a reservation on a space available basis even the day before the trip. Don't miss out.
