Getter Done Charters – Nanaimo

Looking to go fishing in Nanaimo? Getter Done Charters is your ticket! With Captain Brannen at the helm, you’ll have a knowledgeable and experienced guide.

No Chinook or coho retention until may 31 for coho and july 15 for chinook.

These waters are known for Chinook Salmon, Lingcod, Halibut, Crab, Shrimp, Rockfish, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Skate, Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon, and more – with any luck, you’ll have tight lines in no time.
On these trips, it’s common to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle.

Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are absolutely welcome! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. Snacks are also a good idea so that nobody gets cranky on an empty belly!

Your day begins aboard a 22’ Grady-White saltwater fishing vessel that holds up to 4 passengers. It has downriggers and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels, as well as lures.

The vessel has cover and heat to stay warm and comfortable even if the weather in the wintertime isn’t the best. We will be setting traps and fishing for the day. Lots of sea life to see including lots of mammals.

Before coming aboard, it may be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

Some essentials to bring are bottled water, sunglasses, and sunblock (non-spray). If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

The click of a button is the only thing keeping you from a great day on the water with Getter Done Charters!

    The half-day trip will be 4 to 5 hours. In the time that we have on the water, we will drop some Crab traps close to the fishing grounds. Then we will go do some trolling for Salmon. No Chinook retention until july 14 and coho until may 31. If time allows it we also try and target some Lingcod and Rock Cod. Fishing off the bottom jigging for those species is the most productive way to catch them. Very short boat rides to fishing grounds to maximize fishing time.

Hi, my name is Brannen Paradis, and I'm the sole owner and captain of Getter Done Charters. I started this company in 2022. I decided to start my own company because of my passion for fishing on the ocean. I've been fishing ever since I was old enough and just grew to love it! I have more hours on the water than I do on land, and I want to share my passion with others and get clients out on the beautiful ocean.
