Member since April 2019 Campbell River, Canada
Background
I was introduced to fishing at a very young age by my parents who are both avid fishermen. By the time I was 6, I owned my first boat. I spent countless summers in northern Quebec fishing for Walleye, Pike, Gray Trout, and Brook Trout. Fishing was a religion in my family. My father and I would spend the year preparing for the next summer fishing trip that often lasted more than a month. At the age of 25, I moved to British Columbia to become a professional Salmon fisherman. In 2015, I was finally able to purchase the boat of my dreams (Kingfisher 2825) and got to explore the waters surrounding beautiful Vancouver Island with my family. I've also participated in many fishing derbies throughout the years and won the 1st prize for Chinook Salmon at the Nootka Marine Adventures Derby in 2016. Now that I have been to many prime destinations around the Island and fished countless hours in these waters, I want to share my passion for fishing with you.
Techniques
At Tyee Charters, we focus on Salmon, Lingcod, and Halibut. We use only the best gear in order to provide our customers with the smoothest fishing experience there is. For Salmon fishing, we usually use downriggers, which allows us to target the Salmon with precision. We use bait, spoons, hoochies, and plugs combined with the latest electronics to maximize our chances of catching the big one. In the winter, we also organize prawning trips in some of the most scenic areas Campbell River has to offer.
