Fishing Report 2/19/20

Dockside Charters, Fishing Report 2/19/20
Wednesday, February 19, 2020

We had fishermen out yesterday on a nice though windy ocean. Fishing was slow at first but they kept working at it and the fish finally went on the bite with a vengeance. We ended the day with good catches of Rockfish and Ling Cod, most people limited. Early reports from the boats today indicate good fishing and good catches. Crabbing has been slow, so there is no way to go but up. We have space available Thursday and Friday, we are not yet sure what the marine conditions are going to be Saturday but we have some space there too. Sunday's forecast looks pretty stinky at this time.
