Fishing Report 10/30/19
The ocean was great today and Dockside had boats out for fishing the nearshore water. The fish weren't biting very well but everyone kept working at it and by the end of the day everyone had their Rockfish and about one Ling Cod per rod. The marine conditions were so good today it was a privilege to be on the water. We do have room for walk-ins in the morning (Thursday), so be there at 7 am to check in.
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.
Remember too if you have pictures from a trip you can download them to Dockside's Photo Gallery.
Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. Remember, Dockside does not overcrowd the boats, that means more roomR 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.
