Background
I spent my first day on the water at 3 days old on my dad's Comercial fishing boat. Growing up helping him and going to school I got my own boat when I was 10. I used to work around a fish camp and when I turned 12 a got asked to take my first charter out for money, we did great and I was hooked. When I was 14 I started working for a lodge guiding. 16 I started fishing on the west coast and haida gwaii. 9 years ago I bought my first charter boat and started island pursuit sport fishing.

Went fishing on Thursday, September 1, 2016

Captain Steve is a very pleasant fellow with a great deal of knowledge of the sport. We caught our limit of coho in the first two hours and then went after the big springs.

Great day on the water with Steve.  Beautiful day and managed to catch a few good sized fish.  We would definitely go with him again.  We really enjoyed the day.
