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 !!

Went fishing on Thursday, August 18, 2016

This was the first time I’ve done a fishing charter like this. Sean F. is very experienced and made our trip very enjoyable. We had a very good haul at the end of the including a 21-pound Chinook! Great trip—highly recommend and would do it again!
