Reel Time Fishing Charters Ucluelet

204 Hemlock Street
Ucluelet BC, Canada

Reel Time Fishing Charters spends the summer of months of July through mid September running half, full, and multiple day Salmon and Halibut charters off the scenic coast of Ucluelet BC, Vancouver Island. Bringing their guests to wherever the fish may be, Reel Time Fishing Charters is fully equipped to go as far as 20 miles offshore.

The western coast of Vancouver Island is famous for its Halibut fishing, with people coming from across North America and beyond to enjoy this unique angling experience, and the secluded and peaceful town of Ucluelet makes for the perfect place to launch from, with great specimens to be found as soon as you leave its calm, quiet inlet.

The boat you will be fishing on is a 26 ft Hourston cuddy cabin which was freshly overhauled in 2014. She has room aboard for up to 4 guests, and is powered by a 250HP Suzuki engine up to a respectable 20 knots. The vessel comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder, as well as a stealthy 15HP Suzuki trolling motor, and Scotty Highspeed downriggers. The boat also features an enclosed toilet, and an ice box to keep your catch extra fresh on long trips.

In order to get the most out of your day’s fishing, Reel Time Fishing Charters provides professional fishing equipment which can be set up for a selection of techniques depending on the target species. Bottom fish for huge Halibut, troll for Salmon or jig for Lingcod - the choice is yours. With the whole day on the water, you will have the chance to try for all three species and more, and to switch things up and change location multiple times if the fish aren’t biting to make sure you land something special!

All Reel Time Fishing Charters trips come with nothing but the best live and artificial bait, and when you get back to dock all your catch will be cleaned and filleted ready for eating.

I have been fishing all my life. Many had suggested I become a fishing guide, so I took their advice and after working for a number of different fishing charters on the west coast of Vancouver Island, I started my own business called Reel Time Fishing Charters. With a passion for boating, fishing and the enjoyment of helping people catch fish, there has been no looking back!

Our charter with Reel Time Charter was our second day of fishing Ucluelet but first time to fish with Capt Turk. I was very impressed with Turk’s professional approach to explain safety procedures and instructions on how to use the head if necessary. While the fishing started slowly, Turk was focused and determined to put us on fish. He constantly watch the the fish finder and adjusted the outrigger depth to adjust to the topography. While fishing was generally slow for every boat in the area, Turk patiently searched until we hit the honey hole. We had numerous hook ups and boated enough fish to satisfy everyone in our party. Turk is by far the best guide I had in 60+ yrs of fishing. He is the beyond good!
