Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

Well known for surfing and the charter and commercial Dory boat fleet, Pacific City is a hands down favorite for kayak anglers on the Oregon Coast. With summer swells normally from the north, Cape Kiwanda protects the launch site, making the surf quite manageable. Haystack Rock, just about a half mile from launch, gives you excellent fishing and exquisite scenery. Parking can be had right on the beach where you launch, or you can park in the main parking lot if you have concerns getting on and off the beach.

Kayak Fishing the Oregon Coast pt. 1

Let me introduce you to the Oregon Coast. This had begun as a tutorial on a specific fishing area, but has quickly expanded. This first part is focusing on the gear that we use here in the PacNW when bottom fishing on the coast.  We’re going to be targeting Rockfish, Lingcod, Cabezon and Greenling.  Bottom fishing on the Oregon Coast is an excellent, often fast paced fishery. So let’s get started with the tackle.

More PC Fun

I've been running to PC whenever the surf is down enough for me to launch. I just love the fishing out there - anyone could really do it...

This time I brought a crab pot with me. I've never tried crabbing out there before, but I usually see one other crab buoy, so I figured I'd give it a go. I just took the one pot (oregon limits 3 pots/person) just so I didn't have to worry about all the extra gear for nothing.
