Rod Tuggerz Fishing Adventures

If you don’t feel like just sitting in a boat and waiting for something to bite the line, give Rod Tuggerz Fishing Adventures a try. They will show you how fishing in the Fraser River is meant to be done, by targeting the prehistoric monster – Sturgeon!

Enjoy an experience of a lifetime that you will want to share with your family and friends. Engulf yourself in the nature of British Columbia and take in all the beauty of the surrounding waters. They will be all yours!

The Fraser River Sturgeon or ‘Modern Dinosaurs’ as the crew likes to call them, can exceed 12’ in length grow up to a thousand pounds. Just think of that moment when you’re hooked up and Sturgeon begin peeling lines in mere seconds, following with a jump!

Whether you are a hardcore angler to have no experience at all, Rod Tuggerz Fishing Adventures will be more than thrilled to teach you and guide you.

All you have to do is book a trip and hop onboard one of the team’s boats. They are 21-22’ Storm Custom-built Weld & Thunder jet boats with Kodiak engines, a full range of electronics, and professional accessories. One boat can comfortably accommodate up to 8 anglers.

You will be provided with fighting belts, all the necessary gear, tackle, lures, and fish cleaning of all Salmon you want to keep.

Please note that Sturgeon fishing is strictly catch-and-release. The crew has recently teamed up with the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society to make sure they do their part to preserve this unique fishery.

My time with my father on the river was absolutely priceless in more ways than one. Our “PASSION” is to help educate any angler that is willing. We play a big part in the Fraser River Sturgeon Society in tagging sturgeons and collecting data as a way to monitor as we want to expose as much as we can to help protect and conserve. Most importantly we are proactively chasing and partnering up with some of the key players in the Fraser Valley to give back and generate funds to make sure the fish stay around so that all of you and myself can make memories to take with our children & Grand children. These are the moments that I will never forget for my entire life and would most likely be taking them with me.
