Member since September 2017 Campbell River, Canada
Background
My name is Chris Steinbach, and I am the owner/operator of Crabby’s Fishing Charters. I take pride in running a consistently top-producing charter boat in our area. I like to think I work a little harder than my competition to put fish on the deck!
Techniques
Trolling with down riggers for both salmon and bottom fish. Jigging when tides and wind are calm.
