Sounds like the fishing was good.Throbbit _Shane;n612880 said:Went bottom fishing out of Newport last weekend. Our boat dropped 6 pots and had 3 keepers. Fishing was good for bass and lings though!
very common for many of the bays and estuaries to really heat up and stay good starting the first strong tides in July and stay hot right on through September, but it is not uniform, some areas will be the best each year, others a bit less fun. there should be some people on here that have first hand Tillamook experience. cheers, rogerWilliam Charles;n612903 said:rogerdodger That's awesome, great looking bunch of crab! I'm currently out of town on a 3 week business trip. I'll be back in Oregon in the middle of July, do you think crabbing out of Tillamook bay will be hot for the rest of summer? Like others, I haven't heard a whole lot this year on crabbing reports up and down the coast.
Well, the way I look at it is ..... I have a limited amount of cash to spend for fishing so having a productive day on the water helps to stretch the budget as it puts food on the table I don't have to buy at the market.Gulfstream;n612906 said:the way I look at it is..... cant catch em at home!
