Steve O's Fishing Charter

If you’ve always wanted to experience the total escapism that comes with fishing for famous species in a beautiful, peaceful location, make Steve O’s Fishing Charter, located in Sooke, BC, your first point of call. Based at their own private dock in the Sooke Basin, you’ll get to enjoy the stunning scenery of East Sooke on your way to the fishing grounds, where Captain Steve Ouellette will soon have you throwing lines for Salmon, Halibut, and more.

Capt. Steve first picked up a rod when he was a boy, and his passion for fishing has only grown since then. He relocated to Sooke, drawn in by its incredible scenery and ample angling opportunities. Now, as a fully-licensed captain, he loves introducing guests to the calm and serenity that a day of fishing can provide. Nothing beats being out on these waters, and he welcomes anglers of all ages and abilities to join him and experience this for themselves.

You’ll meet Capt. Steve at his private dock, where you’ll board his 33’ Wellcraft sportfishing vessel. She can accommodate up to 6 anglers, with room for everyone to fish at the same time. Your vessel is decked out with top-notch navigational and safety gear, and provides a comfortable and scenic journey to the hotspots. Make sure to ask your captain to drop some crab traps on your way out – you can pick them up on the way back for an enjoyable feast of Dungeness and Red Rock Crab!

Capt. Steve’s preferred method of fishing is trolling, especially when it comes to the much-sought-after Salmon species that inhabit these waters. He’ll show you how to master this technique, and will have you reeling in Coho, Chinook, and Sockeye varieties. He uses his knowledge of the demographics of these waters to determine when and where the best bite will be, and will also have you bottom fishing and more for Lingcod, Rockfish, and Halibut.

Your trip includes rods, reels, lures, and tackle. Grab a fishing license, and join Steve O’s Fishing Charter for an incredible day on the water!
