Background
My first memory in life is going fishing with my father when I was 4 years old. I have been hooked, my wife would say obsessed, with fishing ever since. Come fishing with me and enjoy battling trophy size Salmon or Halibut, as well as taking home plenty of eating size fish
Techniques
For Halibut, we anchor in water 250 to 400 feet deep and lay down a scent trail for the fish to home in on. The action usually starts within an hour of putting our bait on the bottom. For Salmon, we troll slowly in various areas waiting for the fish to hit

Went fishing on Friday, June 9, 2017

Quality gear and good instruction allowed us to boat every fish we had on - just a slowish day of fishing.  Robert worked well with my two boys and it worked out that everyone was able to claim a fish by the end of the day.

Two of the best behaved boys I’ve ever had on a trip

Went fishing on Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Our trip began promptly at the agreed upon time: 6:00 am on a bright, warm sunny day. Robert quickly explained safety protocols and fishing proceedures ln a clear and friendly manner. He was extremely knowledgeable about fishing techniques as well as lnformative about local coastal history. As the day progressed, it was apparent that very few fishermen were catching fish. Regardless, Robert extended our half day trip to ensure a catch. He has a great sense of humour and we enjoyed the lively banter. All-in-all, it was a great day on the Water! We would not hesitate to do it again
