Spend a day in Ucluelet in British Columbia, Canada and have many great fishing moments with Oceans West Sportfishing. As you search the area’s inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters, you’ll come across various tasty and elusive fish that reside in these grounds in great numbers. Captain Scott Nijman will do everything to make your trip enjoyable and get you back with a good catch, so join him aboard and have fun catching fish!

You’ll start out of a 30’ Northwest Aluminum Craft saltwater fishing boat that can accommodate up to 7 guests. It uses twin 225 HP Mercury SeaPro 4.6 V8 engines as well as comprehensive navigation gear that will help you have the quickest and safest trip to the fish possible. Apart from a marine toilet, the boat features an ice-box and downriggers.

The species you can encounter on your trip include Chinook and Coho Salmon, Rockfish, Halibut, and Lingcod, and you catch them using bottom fishing, trolling, and jigging. You can either keep or release the fish you catch and you’re welcome to bring kids aboard.

The captain provides you with all the premium fishing gear and lures and will also clean and fillet your catch after the trip. What you should bring are the snacks and drinks of your choice as well as fishing licenses.

    Put an emphasis on Halibut fishing as the primary target. You and the captain can fish for Chinook (King) Salmon too but you'll shape the day around the most productive parts of the tide for Halibut. Get out the baits and get that scent trail rollin'. It's Hali season! Halibut fishing is weather dependant. In the event of big seas, you'll target Salmon in protected waters.
