2016 Salmon Season!

Salmon Season Opens on April 2nd

Salmon season is almost here!  Check out these beauties (click photos to enlarge), from last year's opener -  first Salmon caught aboard Hulicat's in the 2013 season. 

We had 16 fish for 16 anglers last year.  Pretty good numbers considering it takes a good portion of valuable fishing time to locate fish on the first day of the season.  We were fishing only 10 miles from the harbor!  Make your reservations NOW for this year's opener!!!

Visit our Fishing Photo Gallery (under "Fishing"), and check out our Salmon Fishing  charters.  Or visit our Reservations page to book your trip now!

"To learn more about Humpback Whale behavior and in hopes of spotting Delta and Dawn, I went on a whale watching expedition out in the Pacific Ocean with the Oceanic Society. I saw six humpback whales, but could not identify whether or not they were Delta and Dawn. Below the photo is a PhotoLog of my whale-watching trip (aboard the Huli Cat)..."
