    The 8 and 10-hour charters are the most popular amongst the captain's guests. The extra time is used to go further around, which at times is required to go to the “hot spots.” Salmon move and so do we! For example, during May, June, and early July you can run across the Georgia Strait to the Gulf Islands to target the Salmon as well as Lingcod and a variety of Rockfish.
