Neah Bay 2018
« on: January 02, 2018, 11:12:13 AM »
Big Salmon is taking reservations today.  Policy this year is you pay $650 up front for the month.  With the weeks being split that is the only way to get moorage.  The Cape starts taking reservations tomorrow 1/3

WOW.   Fishermen will pay it.  Some will get creative and launch every morning.

Newport:  $6.50 per day to launch, $16.50 per day for the slip (no minimums) lots of accomodations and RV parking,  A bunch of restaurants, fishing for halibut 4 consecutive days....  VS

Neah:  $650 for moorage (take it or leave it), difficult to get accommodations, widely split season with split fishing days... only a couple of places to eat with limited opening hours...

I'll be joining Tony in Newport ....

I was told that the deal this year is $650 for moorage from 10 May to 1 June.  Moorage for a yacht costs the same as a 16' salmon moocher. 

That said, I conducted an impromptu lead pour yesterday and bought some more 12/0 Big River hooks today.  Heading to Home Depot to get some fiberglass to make some scampis.

Hemi, hope to see you and Nicole at Neah Bay.  My wife is now retired so she plans on being up there with me.   

Russ and all you guys down south, completely understand.   We will see how this works and my need to reassess next year.

I'll be there most of the three weeks, but have to show up for work a couple days each week.  Nicole will (hopefully) show up on halibut days and weekends.

It will surely be a smaller Arima crowd this year, which is understandable yet sad.  But I'm looking forward to fishing with you, Brucel2fish.  We missed you last year (you definitely made the right decision). 

Who else is planning on going?

Was going to do the telephone calling bit to the Cape tomorrow am, but that won't be necessary now.
No way I can justify two trips to NB @300 miles each way within a month.  And one trip for 2 days hali with a week bottom fishing doesn't pencil out either.  It was really fun and productive while it lasted, but nothing is forever.
The PDX Rats will be looking for someone to lead us to Newport.  SF?, 3 wt?

I spent about $ 350 for NB moorage last year for 5 fishing days and couldn't see that being practical.   I had a plan to avoid the high rent opener period and go later when we could get a berth for a couple days ( as previous years )  I got Judy a Tanecum 750 so she could handle the deep water.......

Doesn't look like that will work........  Double rats   

anybody need 210# of ballast for those times your primary can't make it??  Keep me in mind   :biggrin:

I'll be fishing Newport again this year at some "secret" numbers about 30 miles from the bar, and may have some open seats.  There are fish to be caught 5 miles from the bar, and good spots 15-20 miles.

The trick to Newport is weather.  Last May the weather gods were *mostly* kind to us. You could get out, at least, even if you took a little bit of a beating.  Hope 2018 cooperates as well.

There are good halibut spots 20 miles out of Tillamook and Ilwaco as well, but the fishing sucked there last year.

We will be waiting a bit before planning anything out of Newport...  Besides weather ODFW waits until March/April to set the season.  After looking at last year, I find I erred...  The fishing was for 3 consecutive days (Thurs-Sat.) began May 11 and ran for 5 consecutive week-ends (ending June 16)...  I suspect this year will be similar.

And yes, the two week-ends I went last year, the weather gods were kind enough to let us go out but beat on us considerable until around noon each day...  After noon, cleared off and laid down considerable for near shore bottom fishing...

Going to give the Long Leader fishery a try this year too...

Russ, typically the near shore halibut fishery (inside the 40 fathom line, or 240' of water) is open 7 days a week once the season begins in May, up until the nearshore quota is used up (it typically goes into late summer).  It is less productive than the offshore spots, but the fish are typically bigger.
