If that were the case it would be called catching, not fishing. However days we don’t catch fish are rare events.
When booking a trip for halibut you should watch the tides for the smallest difference between the high and low slack, generally this occurs near the quarter moon phase. If you book during and around this time you should have the most success. When fishing for salmon the tides are not as important as they are for bottom fish. The salmon start to show up in late May and will continue to be in the area until late September early October. Peak Season for Salmon fishing June 15th - Sept 1st Peak Season for Halibut fishing May 15th - Sept 15th
