I just got back from a trip over to the coast and stayed in Brookings. Here’s my report from the one day I went out fishing.
Location: Brookings, OR
We went out today with the Tidewind Charters for some bottom fish and lingcod. We started in about 80ft of water and right from the start the fishing was lights out. The entire boat limited on black rockfish in about 2 hours and there were also a couple nice lingcod in the mix, including one that went 20lbs. We were using various color curly tail grubs with a large lead head jig tipped with a piece of fresh rockfish at the bottom. Reports from other boats were that it was fairly slow, and it even slowed down for us after that initial bite.
