Its time for anglers to start booking with us for the upcoming halibut season . Halibut season in Oregon traditionally runs from May thru September. Fishing is good to great throughout the season with limits common on fish in the 20 to 30 lbs. range. Every season a few lucky anglers catch 100 lbs. and larger. We are currently taking reservations for the 2023 season. We anticipate halibut fishing 7 days a week so there should be lots of opportunity to harvest your 6 fish allowed per year. At the time of writing this newsletter the season setting process within Oregon Dept. Of Fish and Wildlife is taking place and comments are being taken on how anglers would like to see the season dates, and bag limits set. I wrote a letter to the department this year asking for 2 halibut per day and allowing us to fish seven days a week. I think that there is a very good chance that in May we will be allowed to harvest 2 halibut per angler a day plus rockfish and lingcod. This would be an awesome number of fish for the effort we all put forth. I expect the season to look a lot like last year weather wise with conditions improving as the season goes throughout the summer. I think we will be able to keep rockfish and lingcod with our halibut in May and June. Then for the remainder of the summer we will be doing long leader rockfish with our halibut combo trips. All of our captains want to see you take home the most number of fish possible on our trips and have a great time while doing it! With 5 six pack boats ready for fishing, we can accommodate large groups or private charters.
