Thanks for making 2017 a great season!
We have finished our 2017 ocean charter season, and it was a great success. Our busiest season to date! Overall, we had a great lingcod season out of the Port of Brookings. The Miss Brooke, our offshore boat, ran nearly every day of the season. We also put our new 26-foot bay boat into service for near-shore lingcod and rockfish. Capt. Andy was busy this season on both boats, while Capt. Travis took the helm of the Miss Brooke the second half of the season.
We begin the 2018 season as soon as we get a break in the weather. Usually we are up and running by late January or early February.
We had some disappointing news late in the season, first when the Chetco Bar Fire caused extensive evacuations in the Brookings area and made for smokey conditions. Then in mid-September, the lingcod and rockfish season closed early. The salmon fishing in the estuary, however, was good and our October ocean salmon season was great, with plenty of fish in the 30- to 40-pound range.
Call (541) 813-1082 to get on our call list for early season ocean charters in January and February.
