Fish Harder Charters

Fish Harder Charters invites you out for a trip you will never forget, targeting big Salmon and Halibut in the Queen Charlotte Strait. The BC coast has some of the world’s best waters for these species, besides simply being a beautiful place to spend the day.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 25’ Campion Cuddy Cabin boat. This sturdy vessel is one of the most popular among guides in the area, and with good reason. She has a respectable cruising speed of 27 knots a comfortable cabin complete with a head, and plenty of fishing space out on deck.

The boat is equipped with the latest electronics and navigational equipment to help you track down the best catch. She also has downriggers and a trolling motor, which combine to provide the most effective way to fish for Salmon.

You will be able to make use of several different fishing techniques depending on what fish you are after. Troll for Salmon, jig for Halibut, or fly fish Steelhead. You will also be given a choice of live bait or lifelike lures to make sure nothing can resist taking a bite.

All Fish Harder Charters come with everything you will need to catch some awesome fish. You will be able to spend the day aboard a great boat, among some of the most beautiful surroundings on earth and the end of your trip, Captain Ryan will clean and fillet all your catch, ready for you to take home and enjoy.

So step aboard and get ready for the perfect day on the water!
