Background
Being raised salmon fishing from as far back as I can remember. The ocean is in my blood . My love for fishing has taken me all over the coast of bc .From Prince Rupert to the waters around Vancouver island . I get to share this knowledge and have a great adventure each time we go out!
Techniques
Salmon fishing is most effective with the use of down riggers . The west coast tradition of long rods with centre pin reels is preferred. Bottom fish is most productive jigging with artificial baits or herring . But for halibut especially big halibut I prefer to anchor and run a spreader bar bait setup . This requires patience but comes with great rewards !!
