Great Expectations Fishing Charters offers fantastic half and full day trips, targeting the top predators lurking in the waters around Victoria, BC. Spend the day fishing these clear northern seas in search of the giant Halibut and Salmon which thrive in the area.
The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a top-of-the-line 25’ Donzi cuddy cabin boat. Built in 2005, this clean, modern vessel is powered by twin Yamaha outboards up to an impressive cruising speed of 38 knots, to get you out to the best spots in no time.
Not that that matters, because all Great Expectations charters start when the lines are in the water. That means that you will always have plenty of fishing time, and can enjoy the ride, taking in the area’s stunning natural beauty without constantly looking at your watch.
Once you get to the fishing grounds, you will be provided with everything you need to catch some true trophy specimens. The vessel is fitted GPS and fishfinder so you are always fishing in the right spot, as well as downriggers to help target the big fish lurking in the deep.
You will be provided with nothing but the best-quality fishing tackle or your trip, to ensure the best result. Choose from a variety of weight classes, with the option to troll or bottom fish, depending on the target species.
So what will you be targeting on your trip? That is up to you, and how much time you have. On a half day trip, you can either go after Salmon or Halibut, and on a full day, you can target after both. You will also have plenty of time to drop some crab traps on the way out for an even better haul at the end of the day.
No matter which trip you choose, you can count on great service both during and after. Captain Gerry will clean and fillet all you catch for you, and can even arrange freezing and vacuum sealing, so you can ship it all home. This usually costs around $3/lb plus shipping, although rates can vary.
