Halibut w/TrueCod – Sekiu is looking Better! (Click Here)
Apr 11 @ 12:15 pm – Jun 8 @ 12:45 pm

Great News!
For the 2014 season WDFW has changed the regulations for Marine Area 5, allowing us to retain True Cod while targeting Halibut. This is a Great Bonus to an already Great Fishing Trip.

With only four days of Washington State Ocean Halibut trips to offer, we will be offering Sekiu Halibut Charters in Marine Area 5 again this year. Everyone that has called about Sekiu has asked what other fish are we able to keep.

NEW THIS YEAR! we will be able to retain True Cod/ Pacific Cod on these trips. This is Great News as we frequently catch these Great Eating fish while targeting Halibut. We are taking reservations for these trips on May 29, 30, 31st and June 7th

2014 Salmon Season is Set! (Click Here)
May 31 @ 12:00 am – Sep 22 @ 12:00 pm

We have been awaiting the news and the early forecast for this years Salmon Season have been Great. The Seasons are now set.

Here is an article from the Seattle Times.

The ocean salmon fishing seasons could very well go down as some of the best seen in more than three decades.
“It will absolutely be a good summer for salmon off the coast, and one of the most significant seen in years,” Doug Milward, the state Fish and Wildlife coastal salmon resource manager said of returns that resemble those seen dating back to the all-time peak in 1977.
State fishery managers unveiled a surprisingly large Columbia River forecast that could be a landmark return of nearly 3 million Chinook and Coho.
The Columbia River fall Chinook forecast of more than 1.6 million is the largest fall return since at least 1938. The Columbia Coho forecast is 1.2 million Coho, and could rival the 2009 Coho season when about 1.05 million returned.
The coastwide sport catch quota for hatchery coho will be 184,800 (75,600 last year), and 59,100 Chinook (51,500 last year).
The selective fishery for hatchery Chinook will be open daily off Ilwaco and Westport from May 31-June 13. La Push and Neah Bay will be open May 16-17 and May 23-24, and May 31-June 17. The fisheries could close sooner if a coastwide quota of 9,000 hatchery Chinook is achieved.
The traditional ocean salmon fishery for Chinook and hatchery coho would open daily at Ilwaco and Westport from June 14-Sept. 30. La Push would be open daily from June 14-Sept. 21 and Sept. 27-Oct. 12. Neah Bay would be open daily from June 14-Sept. 21

We can retain Two Chinook

We are taking Reservations, Now, for all of our Ocean Charters which will start on April 16th.
We start our Season with our “Deep Water Ling Cod/Rockfish Combos”.

These Trips were created to offer a Great Deep Water Experience for our guests that were not able to get in on one of the days of our ridiculously short Four Day Halibut Season. The Ling Cod population Offshore is very Healthy. We have no problem finding a couple of dandy Ling Cod for everyone. We then target the offshore Rock fish (ten each) on this Trip; you will come home with a lot of delicious White Meat and sore arms. The state has extended this season to include the first 8 days of May this year. The 20fatham depth restriction goes into effect on May 9th. Regular near shore Bottomfish Trips are always available after the Deep Water depth restriction. We are full for our Offshore Halibut trips. We are Now Full on our Inside Halibut Trips. We will offer these calmer water trips in Sekiu (Marine Area 5) we are able to keep One Halibut and  Two True-Cod.

We are expecting to see  another  Great Salmon Season with large numbers of Chinook available. Last Season in our Port  (Neah Bay) we were able to retain 2 Chinook in our daily Salmon Limit. We had Huge Success for our guests, and we are excited to see another Big Salmon year. This is a Pink Salmon year, and we will be able to keep one Pink (Humpie) as a bonus to our two Fish limit. The Regular Ocean Salmon will run through August and into September. 

Here are a few pictures from our 2014 Salmon Season.

 Ocean Salmon Seminar

March 12th


At Puget Sound Anglers Sno-King Chapter Thursday March 12th 6:30

Mike Jamboretz of Jambo’s Sportfishing is going to be showing you how to set up your boat, downriggers, and rods, to catch Chinook Salmon when they are running very deep. This is not an uncommon occurrence.  
Mike fishes for Chinook mainly out of Neah Bay. The Near-Shore fishery from Skagway to Umatilla can be Great, but it can be inconsistent. Fishing this area is all about timing and can be compared to fishing a river, as in right place-right time. When the fish are not following the beach, they can generally be found off-shore and in deeper water. Fishing the canyon edges, and out on the ‘Prairie’ can be very productive. The problem is that there are times when water temperatures rise, and the Chinook are too deep to reach with traditional sport gear.
As a Fishing Charter Captain, I am constantly searching for any ‘Intel’ available. Over the years it is apparent that during these times, the majority of nice Chinook coming in are landed by Commercial Trollers, and not Sport Fishers. The frustrating thing for us is that quite often the Trollers are only finding the good biters on the bottom spreads of their gear, which is too deep for average sport gear.
 These are the times when the only bait balls that we can find, look like Haystacks of bait fish rising 50 ft off the bottom in 450+ feet of water. A few years ago I would be too afraid of tangles to drop the Downrigger Balls deep enough to reach these fish. Over time, trial, error, and tangles, I have finally developed a method to successfully fish 4 Rods at these depths with as much as 480ft of cable out. I will not say that we never tangle, but we are not tangling until we have multiple Chinook hooked up. It is not uncommon to find that Happy Spot and hookup all 4 Rods.
In my Ocean Salmon Seminars besides the usual Tackle Talk, I now cover the importance of Ocean currents, and how set up your boat and gear to successfully fish these Deep Water Chinook

Taking Bookings: Offshore Deepwater Ling Cod/ Rockfish! and Near Shore Bottomfish!
Feb 6 @ 9:03 pm – May 31 @ 10:03 pm

OffShore Deepwater Ling Cod/Rockfish Trips are definately a lot of “Bang for the Buck”

These Trips Start in April and are only available thru May 2nd, as our Depth Restriction goes into effect on May 3rd.

On these trips you will take home Two Large Ling Cod and a limit of Rockfish.

We venture out to the same Banks and Deep Water that we would on an Offshore Halibut Trip. The difference being that we will concentrate on the rockier areas where we find the Nicer Ling Cod, with the least amount of Halibut encounters.

Then we target the Yellowtail Rockfish that can be found in large mid-water schools. These are definitely one of my Favorite Foods!!!! This is a Great OffShore Trip!!!
