Island Pursuit Sport Fishing - 29'

Clear skies, blue waters, and monster Salmon breaking the surface – that paints a picture of Comox. All this picture is missing is you! Luckily, Island Pursuit Sport Fishing is here to change that and bring you to the hottest fishing off the shore of British Columbia.

Captain Steve Veloso invites you to join him for a fun-filled day of hook ups.  He operates a 29’ Pursuit cuddy cabin, manufactured in 2001 and fully rejuvenated in 2017. You can bring 4 of your fishing buddies with you on this fishing excursion, her spacious back deck and roomy cabin offer plenty of room for everyone feel comfortable. You’ll get to your chosen fishing grounds in no time, thanks to the twin Evinrude engines with 200 HP each.

The waters of British Columbia hold many species that are exciting to target and Capt. Steve will get you on top of all of them. Bottom fishing for Rockfish and Halibut can land you big beasts. You’ll also troll for Chinook and Coho Salmon, with the help of the onboard outriggers. That’ll allow you to wet more lines at the same and when you’re going after BC Salmon you want all the lines you can get. Spending an entire day going after Kings and Silvers isn’t on many anglers bucket lists for no reason!

The charter will provide you with all the required rods, reels, and tackle for this angling adventure. Kids of all ages are welcome on board, Capt. Steve loves getting young anglers hooked on sportfishing. After a day spent landing fish your catch will be cleaned and filleted once you’re back at the dock.

Make the first step on your new fishing journey. Book a trip with Island Pursuit Sport Fishing and cast off on a trip you won’t forget!

I spent my first day on the water at 3 days old on my dad's commercial fishing boat. Growing up helping him and going to school, I got my own boat when I was 10. I used to work around a fish camp and when I turned 12 a got asked to take my first charter out for money. We did great and I was hooked. When I was 14 I started working for a lodge guiding. At 16 I started fishing on the west coast and Haida Gwaii. 9 years ago I bought my first charter boat and started Island Pursuit Sport Fishing.
