Rodfather Fishing And Outdoor Adventures

Operating out of Victoria, Canada, Rodfather Fishing and Outdoor Adventures invites you for an exciting day of fishing! They’re a local charter with experienced guides who have been fishing the waters of southern Vancouver Island for over a decade. They offer full and half day trips suitable for anglers of all skill levels.

Your captain will take you exploring these plentiful waters, and do everything he can to put you on the catch of a lifetime! You’ll get to test the bite inshore, nearshore, and offshore as you target Salmon, Halibut, and Lingcod. Armed with both light and heavy tackle, you’ll get to try a variety of techniques, including bottom fishing, trolling, and jigging.

All this action will take place aboard a 21’ Wellcraft classic boat that can accommodate up to 3 anglers fishing in full comfort. This classic beauty comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and features top-of-the-line marine electronics and safety equipment. Onboard, you’ll also find downriggers and an icebox.

The charter will cover the use of state-of-the-art fishing gear and lures. The mate will gladly clean the catch after the trip is over, so tips for his efforts are more than welcome. Make sure to get a valid fishing license before the trip, as well as any food and drinks you’d like to have.

Rodfather Fishing And Outdoor Adventures will take care of the rest, and make sure you go home with full coolers and lifelong memories!

I have had a love of fishing since I was just a kid. I moved to Victoria after fishing in Haida Gwaii for 2 seasons. I fell in love with the ocean and fishing at that time and have never looked back! I started guiding in 2018 but I have fished southern Vancouver Island for over a decade now. I love sharing my knowledge with my customers! Anyone who enjoys fishing or wants to learn is my favorite! We are very passionate about fishing and nature and are happy to be a part of family memories.
