Last Cast Guiding- Salmon & Halibut

Come and enjoy Salmon and Halibut fishing at its best with Last Cast Guiding, a full service charter company that offers top quality fishing tackle and adventures and departs from a variety of locations along B.C’s wild west coast.

Their charter vessel the ‘Last Cast’ is a Grady White Express that measures 26.5 ft. With a 9 ft 8 in beam, the boat offers plenty of room for up to five guests and features a comfortable cuddy cabin and a flush toilet for the ladies. Grady Whites are heavy offshore fishing machines and Last Cast is no exception. Powered by twin 225 HP Suzuki 4 stroke engines, the boat offers the ultimate in reliability and power.

Last Cast Guiding offer day trips as well as multi day fishing adventures based from fishing lodges in Bamfield B.C. They fish different locations depending on the season, starting in late April fishing from Nanaimo and Nanoose Bay on the East Coast of Vancouver Island, before moving to Port Alberni and Bamfield in June to take advantage of the West Coast fishing experience. You can choose between calmly fishing the inlets for maximum comfort or going offshore to target Salmon and Halibut on a trip that will delight the most hard core of anglers. Whatever you decide, the knowledgeable guides will use their arsenal of experience to put you on the fish. In order to make sure your trip is as good as possible, only the best quality gear is used on board, with Islander precision reels and Rapala graphite rods being the preferred tackle.

Last Cast Guiding is Transport Canada certified and all their guides are professional operators with many years experience fishing. They can also work with larger corporate groups to organize a fishing experience for up to 30 guests.
