Welcome to Westport, Washington charter boat fishing headquarters! Ocean Sportfishing Charters is YOUR destination for day trips for sea bass, ling cod, halibut, salmon;  and one- to three-day, live-bait albacore tuna trips on the beautiful Washington coast. We are just a short 2-1/2 hour drive from Seattle, and 4-1/2 hours from British Columbia, Canada.

Our customers enjoy a great day on the ocean: just check out our fishing reports.
We open the 2017 Westport charter fishing season on Saturday, March 11th, when bottom fishing (rock fish and ling cod) opens. The salmon season opener will be announced in April; look for an opening day md June. Speaking of May, the first two weeks of May are the Westport Washington halibut season!  Always popular, many dates are almost full: call us to book your trip now.
Westport Washington lands more albacore tuna than any other port on the Pacific coast. We start the albacore season the third week of July. As with halibut, many dates are nearly or already booked. Here is the Ranger 2017 tuna schedule. Stay tuned as we continue working on next season’s schedule and info!
Check here, or on our Facebook Page for up-to-date news. We ensure that our customer’s charter fishing trip meets or exceeds  expectations because we can accommodate many different kinds of requests and have several boats to select from.On our sport fishing trips, we target various species of fish including Albacore Tuna, Rockfish, Lingcod, Halibut, Coho (aka Silvers) and Chinook (aka Kings). Regardless if you are novice or experienced anglers, you will be challenged by every fish!

SALMON FISHING

The opening day for salmon fishing is set by the state Fisheries Department; we’ll post details when we get them, in April 2017.  We’re hearing that the Chinook numbers are again going to be very good!
Coho is another excellent sport fishing which gets going good by mid-June and continues on into August and September. Our salmon fishing here is great! Westport is nicknamed “The Salmon Capital of the World!”

Fighting a King is one of the ultimate tests for any angler. These fish are fast and big. Fish topping 40-lbs are not uncommon. They will rip line from your spool, challenge your strength, and take you on a journey around the boat multiple times before you have a chance to land them.

Silvers might not get as big as kings, but what they lack in size, they more than make up for in dogged tenacity. Get one of these fish on your pole and you will see acrobatics, speed, and power. Fishing for Silvers and Kings usually require anglers to practice a mooching technique that gives you complete control over hooking and fighting your own fish. Mooching is done by lowering your bait to a desired depth, and then fishing the water column as you reel back up.

Obviously, fishing in Westport for salmon can be non-stop, exciting, and result in plenty of fillets for the freezer. When you take one of our salmon fishing trips, our captains and courteous deckhands will give you a full rundown on how to hook and land your fish, and will do everything they can to make sure everything possible is being done to ensure your fishing experience is of the highest quality.

BOTTOM FISH: LINGCOD & ROCKFISH

Bottom fishing is just plain fun! We recommend a bottom fishing trip as a great “first time on the ocean” trip: catching rockfish and lings doesn’t involve a lot of skill, and they’re fairly easy to catch. This kind of fishing is ideal for anybody who simply wants to enjoy some exciting fishing action and some great tasting fish to take home, especially kids, novice anglers and groups. Lingcod can place a considerable amount of strain on a fishing rod and weigh as much as 40-lbs. Rockfish usually weigh between 2- to 8-lbs.

Bringing up two fish at a time is always exciting! Your limit per person is 7 rockfish: that’s a lot of fish tacos and fish ‘n chips!

HALIBUT FISHING

Fishing for Halibut starts the first Sunday in May every year. These fish can weigh as much as 150-lbs. We use heavy duty line and gear and fish in an area about 600-800 feet deep.

Our Halibut trips may include large Black Cod, Rockfish, or Lingcod. These are all considered bonus fish and our customers are always surprised every time they reel one of these additional fish into the boat.

This season is very short. If you haven’t booked by March, chances are slim to get on a boat!

ALBACORE TUNA FISHING

At Ocean Sportfishing, we start our albacore fishing season in late July. We encourage our customers to try tuna fishing if they have never done so before. The coast of Washington offers some of the most exciting tuna fishing found anywhere in the world! Most of our customers simply haven’t tried tuna fishing because they mistakenly believe that it is necessary to travel to the tropics to catch one of the fastest fish in the ocean. A 2- or 3-Day fishing trip for tuna will provide the best fishing experience of a lifetime.

In addition to there being a considerable number of albacore tuna, they usually weigh between 15- and 45-lbs. Usually, our customers who have never fished for albacore tuna believe that they have hooked a much larger fish when they first hook one.
