Rugged West Coast Sport Fishing

There’s a fish with your name on it on Vancouver Island, BC, and Rugged West Coast Sport Fishing will help you catch it! Our Charter can take you fishing anywhere on Vancouver Island, BC! We are not tied to one specific area, although our most fished area for customers are at the Deep Bay Marina near Qualicum Beach, BC. Whether you are looking for a Charter in Nanaimo to Ucluelet/Tofino we are your guides!

Captain Jesse Sadler or Jonathan Skucas will be your guides, which allows you to benefit from years of professional experience. Both our guides have grown up in Ucluelet and Tofino and have spent years fishing and working with commercial and private guides.

Around here, it’s common to catch Chum Salmon, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Pink Salmon, Crab, Flounder, Rockfish, Sculpin, and more if you come at the right time of year. During the trip, you might be trolling, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Captains Jesse Sadler and Jonathan Skucas welcome you aboard a 25’ Pursuit that holds up to 5 passengers. It comes with downriggers, outriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels, and lures.

Before coming aboard, you’ll need to buy a local BC fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Families who love fishing together will be glad that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available. It’s recommended to bring snacks, drinks, sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor and glass bottles.
