Welcome to our "Fish List" Newsletter

 

In 1997, the commercial fishing family of Bonnie and Captain Mark Tognazzini turned to consumer-direct (straight from the boat) fish sales in response to the disparity between wholesale and consumer fish prices. During albacore and salmon seasons (around May to September), Captain Mark would fish during the week and then conduct sales from the Bonnie Marietta on the weekends. A weekly email would notify customers of the sales, and they would turn out in droves, sometimes standing in line for two or more hours for a chance to buy a whole fish directly off the boat. 

 

By the time the Tognazzinis opened Dockside Too Fish Market in 2006, they were eager to be able to provide loyal customers with a wider variety of high quality local fish, while also supporting other local skippers. However, the sea continues to call, and Captain Mark still fishes and conducts straight-from-the-boat sales when albacore and salmon are available in sufficient numbers. (As Mark says, it's called "fishing," not "catching.") So, the email list, or "Fish List" as it is commonly known, continues!  However, it now also serves to notify customers of special local catches featured in the Fish Market and restaurants.  You'll find previous Fish List emails below.

 

If you would like to be on the "Fish List," sign up below. You can expect an email approximately once each week during summer and early fall and less often through the rest of the year. And, of course we would never release your email information to anyone!

Good fishing this week has justified another “fish list” update as well as some great weekly specials here at Dockside. Although the pelagic season was slow to start, we are beginning to see some steady landings of these offshore favorites. Capt. Roff of the Diane Susan and Capt. LeBeck of the Trailblazer had another week with some pretty good success. Landings of Swordfish, Bluefin Tuna, Thresher Shark, Opah, and even another Louvar have once again arrived here at Dockside.

 

The success of these captains has allowed us to offer two great values on Bluefin Tuna this week. First, if you need just a little bit, Bluefin Tuna loins will be available for $11.95 per pound. Second, if you can use a little more, whole Bluefin Tuna will be available for $5.95 per pound. As always, if you purchase whole fish, we will cut them for no additional charge. Most of the fish this week are in the 20-pound range, however there are a couple 40-pounders and even a couple 80-pounders!

 

In addition to Bluefin Tuna, we will be offering great values on local Swordfish at $12.95 per pound, Thresher Shark and Mako Shark at $6.95 per pound, and Louvar at $19.95 per pound. Last week the Louvar went fast so hurry in if you are hankering for a hunk of this magnificently moist fish!

 

As a side note, Dockside 3 (Smokehouse) will be offering our amazing almond-wood smoked turkeys for Christmas! We will be smoking a limited number of turkeys so remember to reserve yours soon. Smoked turkeys will average 13-pounds each and offered at $3.50 per pound. If you would like to reserve a bird please call (805) 772-8130.

Well it’s been quite some time since we have sent out a “fish list” update but as you know, this time of year we only send out notice when something really good happens. With the Holiday season fast upon us and some really good fishing this week, now is as good of a time as any to keep everyone in the loop with the local fishing scene. As many of you know, the pelagic season has been well underway for some time now but very slow fishing has meant that we have not seen many of these seasonal fish….until now.

 

Swordfish, Opah, Bluefin Tuna, Thresher Shark, Mako Shark, and even Louvar have finally found their way to us here at Dockside and we couldn’t be more excited to have these magnificent fish. Capt. Roff of the Diane Susan and Capt. LeBeck of the Trailblazer both had successful trips providing us with strong supplies of these fall favorites.

 

The success of these captains have allowed us to feature your choice of Swordfish or Bluefin Tuna this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for $12.95 per pound, or Louvar for $19.95 per pound in the Market. Supplies of Swordfish and Bluefin are strong, however as always, Louvar is limited and those who know will likely gobble up what we have pretty fast.

 

In the Restaurant we will be featuring fresh Swordfish, Bluefin Tuna, Opah, and Thresher Shark in a variety of scrumptious specials throughout the week. Our “Fish of the Day” will be Lingcod while supplies last and then likely switch to Swordfish.

 

Finally if you are looking for Dungeness Crabs, we have them! Capt. Ward of the Dancing Bear has been providing us with some large and hearty crabs from Port San Luis. Live crabs are available for $6.95 per pound or have us steam them for $7.95 per pound. Please feel free to call in your crab order ahead of time as the steaming process usually takes between 30-40 minutes.

 

Dockside crew and staff wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you decide to include some fresh local seafood in a few of you special holiday meals this year!
