Fish On Charters

Fish On Charters runs specialized and super exciting fishing trips in Port Alberni, British Columbia. They can take you to the best spots where the prized Salmon spend their days, when in this region, and show you the wonders of the Canadian waterways.

The entire area of Port Alberni is surrounded by breathtaking views of lavish mountains and exquisite wildlife that includes bears, eagles, Orcas, and dolphins. This area has been named the Salmon Capital of the World, as the quantities of Salmon are just extraordinary. You will be able to catch several species of Salmon, as well as a chance for a Halibut or Lingcod.

The season runs from June through September, with the larger Chinooks and Coho Salmon showing up at the end of August through September.

The charter is run by Captain Barry Raynes who has been fishing for over 25 years and chartering for the last 10 years from Port Alberni. He is a native of Vancouver and is very knowledgeable of the West Coast fish and the wildlife.

Captain Barry will take you out on his M.V. Fish & Chicks, which is a 25 foot Grady White saltwater fishing boat. It is powered by a 310 HP Mercruiser engine that makes it pretty fast on the beautiful waters of the Vancouver Island. You will find life jackets for safety, a GPS and a fishfinder, and a toilet which is a huge plus for the whole family.

Fish On Charters provide all the fishing gear including 4 rods, 2 downriggers,  lures and frozen bait in the form of Herring and Anchovies. They will also clean and fillet your catch so you can cook it as soon as you get back home and experience the joy of eating your own catch!

So stop your wishing and go fishing!!
