Pursuit Sport Fishing Charters

Bentley Street
Vancouver BC, Canada

Pursuit Sport Fishing Charters offers year round Salmon fishing adventures from beautiful Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Join your experienced guide, either Dan, Guy or Pierre and let them take you to the hottest fishing spots in the area. They have decades of experience fishing in Vancouver, the Gulf Islands, and all up and down the British Columbia coast.

Make your fishing charter a trip of a life time on board their immaculate 23’ custom Grady White Gulfstream cuddy cabin. This is a clean and spacious boat which was originally built in 1992 and up hauled in 2014. It comes powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers. The vessel is fitted with navigational electronics and other professional accessories to save your time while searching for fish. The boat is well-prepared for the current bite, and it shows!

Pursuit Sport Fishing will take you trolling a variety of artificial lures at various depths from down riggers in search of Pacific Salmon. You will drop crab traps during the winter and spring, as well as prawn traps on the full day charters during the winter season. All the captains are Pro Staff with Amundson Fishing and proudly run 10.5’ Amundson mooching rods and reels.

Vancouver Harbor, Howe Sound, and the Georgia Strait Hold Pacific Salmon offer a great bite year-round. The crew know where they hide and which methods work best. You will also be able to target Lingcod and Rockfish.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, frozen and artificial bait, and lures. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you. 5% GST is not included.

    For those hard core anglers looking for the ultimate experience on the water.

    Our most popular trip and the best chance for your guide to go where he needs to be to maximize our shot at locating and hooking Salmon. We can go a little further to where the bite is on or to change locations if we need to.

    A great option for those with limited time or budget looking to get out on the water in Vancouver. 6 hours provides a longer soak for our crab traps and lets us go a little further than our half day charter to get to more productive areas for Salmon fishing. We will be fishing local waters around the Vancouver Harbour and up Howe Sound for salmon and season crab.

    Try your luck at salmon fishing. This package is great for introducing kids to fishing, since you won't be on the water for too long. We drop crab traps in the winter and spring months.

I have been avidly fishing local waters around Vancouver and Vancouver Island since I was a little boy. I still feel like that little boy when I am out on the water chasing Salmon. I just love sharing, teaching, and guiding anglers of all experience levels. I feel lucky to get the opportunity to share the beauty of our local area as well as the bounty of our Salmon and Crab fishing with guests from all around the globe. I enjoy watching the big smiles of kids of all ages hook into and fight a wild Pacific Salmon. I am an airline pilot by profession but my passion is fishing and in particular Salmon fishing on the ocean. You are in great hands with me or one of my professional guides.
