Steady fishing and beautiful weather have joined forces over the last few days making it another great week for fresh fish here at Dockside. Many of our local captains have used the great conditions at sea to their advantage and have capitalized with landings of many of our favorites.
Local King Salmon fishing this week has greatly improved with landings from Capt. Mark on the Bonnie Marietta, as well as Capt. Nungaray of the Michael Too, Capt. Richardson of the Raggamuffin, and even Capt. Sylvster of the Trudy S. Further north, Capt. VanWagner of the Pure Adrenaline 2 also had a nice trip fishing King Salmon and topped off our supply of these silver sided beauties. The success of these local captains allows us to feature King Salmon this week for $19.95 per pound for fillets or $9.95 per pound for whole fish. As always, if you purchase a whole fish, we will cut it for you any way you like for no additional charge. Salmon sizes range greatly this week from around 10 lbs to over 20 lbs, with most weighing about 14 lbs.
Local Halibut fishing was also very productive this week. Capt. Nailen of The Seeker, Capt. Conners of the Silver Bullet, Capt. Shiflett of the Mr. T, and Capt. Campopiano of the Island Hopper all had strong landings of these fabulous flat fish. Local Halibut fillets will be available this week in the market for $19.95 per pound.
Lingcod fishing has been strong and consistent over the last few months with landings from too many captains to mention. Lingcod will continue to be in good supply in the market throughout the week for $10.95 per pound.
These fish and a variety of others will be available in the market throughout the week as well as featured in some mouth-watering dishes in our restaurant. We always recommend that you eat seasonally and enjoy the fresh bounties of the sea when they are available. Now is as good of time as any to enjoy these favorites while they are local and fresh, and before they get the chance to swim away.
