Tradewinds Charters offers a variety of rockfishing trips, salmon trips, halibut trips, and tuna trips. Some seasonal, some not. We went rockfishing and had great catches. The office personnel as well as the captain/crew on board the vessel were all extremely helpful and friendly. Even saw whales out there as we brought in our good-eating fish! Definitely recommend going with Tradewinds. For the inexperienced or the fishing professional, THE best place for fishing (and whale watching too!) in Depoe Bay to visit!
Equipment: Dress warm, bring food... otherwise sit back and enjoy!
Fishing charter boats go in and out of the harbor in search of the bounty of ocean fish located outside - halibut, lingcod, salmon, tuna. Year-round charters go out for the rockfish, while the others are seasonal. December -February and again in March, migrating whales come close offshore and the boats go out loaded with would-be whale watchers. For the more adventurous, Zodiacs are available.
