First Fish Charters

First Fish Charters offers is ready to take you out for some amazing fishing and great times on the beautiful waters around Vancouver. Famous for being some of the richest Salmon territory in the world with an annual population of up to 30 million fish, you can be pretty confident you’re going to land something special!

You will be fishing aboard Captain Warren’s 25 ft Defiance fishing boat. She is the perfect tool for the job, built for a life of hard service at sea, and kitted out with GPS and fishfinder to track down the best catch, and everything you will need once you have found them. She also features an enclosed head for extra comfort and convenience on those longer trips.

Captain Warren Specialises in Salmon fishing, with a lifetime of experience and high quality tackle, lures and bait provided, but you will also get the chance to catch some Dungeness Crabs an Prawns on your trip too, laying a few traps on the way out then hauling them in on the way back. This is a great way of making the most of your time and coming home with a huge haul even on a half day trip.

All First Fish Charters come with bait, water, and a free cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take home.

Born on the West Coast of Canada I come from a family of fishing guides who helped teach me my craft. At the age of six I caught my first salmon and have been 'hooked' ever since. I really enjoy being out on the ocean and sharing the fishing experience with my guests.
