Deep Sea Fishing Astoria Oregon

Posted by on Feb 24, 2014 in Astoria Oregon | Comments Off

If you’re looking to fill up the freezer, or if you just want to get spoiled with some hot fishing action, then you need to do some fishing on the Oregon Coast. Venturing out onto the Pacific Ocean brings a peaceful seclusion from hoards of anglers often found on Oregon’s Rivers, and, oftentimes, non-stop fishing action. Oregon’s coastline is home to a variety of fish, but we’re mostly fond of Rockfish and Lingcod. These fish like to cling around deep reefs and rocky outcroppings which provide shelter and an abundance of food. Rockfish and Lingcod are also some of the best tablefare in the Pacific Ocean. Baked, fried, poached, it’s hard to go wrong with these fish. Fishing for Rockfish and Lingcod is a fairly simple affair. If you have done much bass or perch fishing on lakes and ponds, a lot of what we use will look familiar, just on a much larger scale. These fish are aggressive feeders, so bait is generally not necessary. They do live down in some deep water, so heavy jigs are sent down to the ocean floor to entice the toothy Lingcod. Rockfish are attracted to small shrimp flies, which we tie onto the same leader as the Lingcod jig. It is not uncommon to catch two and even three fish at the same time. While out on the ocean, there is a lot of sightseeing to do as well. You can see the coastline of Oregon from the Ocean to get a whole new look at steep cliffs and rock formations. It is uncommon to see whales migrating and dolphins might even swim by for an appearance. We are excited to start offering guided trips for Rockfish, Lingcod and even Halibut this year. Give us a call now to book your trip for some awesome fishing along the Oregon Coast.

Keeper Sturgeon fishing Columbia River 2014

Posted by on Dec 9, 2013 in Columbia River, Sturgeon | Comments Off

Starting January 1, 2014 we will have a short season to keep Sturgeon on the Columbia River above Bonneville Dam. When I say short, I mean short. If we are lucky we will have 24 days. 2014 keeper Sturgeon fishing season for the Bonneville pool should be January 1 through January 24th or until the quota is met. Be sure to check daily for any emergency closures. Call Marvin’s Guide Service today to book your trip and don’t worry about the cold! We have a top and a heater to keep you nice and warm while fishing from our new 2014 23’ Alumaweld Intruder. Remember this will be more than likely the only time in 2014 to keep a Sturgeon. We will continue to operate catch and release trips the rest of the year.

Portland Oregon Sturgeon fishing 2013

Posted by on Dec 1, 2013 in Columbia River, Sturgeon | Comments Off

With November marking the end of salmon season for Marvin’s Guide Service, we have switched gears and hitting up the Willamette River and hooking up on some excellent catch and release Sturgeon Fishing. Sturgeon fishing in the Portland area has been great so far with Sturgeon four to 11 feet long taking our bait. We have been fishing a few of our favorite Sturgeon spots and finding good fishing where ever we go. Catch and release Sturgeon fishing should stay like this throughout the winter and continue to get better as spring gets closer. The bites might get a bit softer, but the Sturgeon will still be here. Winter is a great time to catch big quality fish on lighter gear than we would use in the summer months. Sturgeon fishing in the winter is much better than going to the gym and we’re pretty sure it’s a better workout too.
