Hooked On Fishing Charters

If you’re ready to get Hooked on Fishing in Sooke, book a trip with Hooked On Fishing Charters. Your guide for the day is Captain Joshua, so you’ll benefit from years of experience.

These waters are known for Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Rockfish, and more – with any luck, you’ll find out for yourself! You can expect to do some trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Depending on what you’d like to do, of course!

If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Kids under 12 are free!  If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Also, remember to bring snacks to ward off any mid-trip fatigue!

Your day begins aboard a 21’ Bayliner cuddy cabin with a capacity for 3 passengers. It has downriggers and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Capt. Joshua has rods and reels for you, along with lures.

You will need to get a local fishing license before the trip. 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.

You can’t go wrong when you bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and a hat. Alcohol is allowed responsibly.

Hooked On Fishing Charters will make it easy for you to go fishing in Sooke. So, how about booking that trip?
