From Tim & Jackie Wittman, Guemes Island, Washington.

Hi Matt,

This was our 3rd year fishing with West Coast Fish and like every year, it was fantastic. We limited on halibut, coho, chinook, and even a bonus of 4 big ling cod! The fish arrived home safe and sound, and our trip is the talk of the island (not to mention the fish stories and barbeques that are being lined up!). We wanted to say how much we enjoyed seeing you and Kirk again, and also
getting to fish with your brother, Mark this time! Great guy! Please send him the pictures and the Fish Tacos recipe that I forwarded to you. We plan to fish with you again next year, for the 4th year in a row! Coincidentally, we will also be celebrating our 25th (Silver) wedding anniversary! So maybe this will be the year that we catch the 100 pound plus Hali or Tyee!

Thanks again for everything, Matt!

See you next year. Tim & Jackie

Hi Matt,

I did not forget our wonderful fishing charter with you and your dog. By the way, I have a nice picture of your dog and Charles together. I will send it to you. It’s in my daughter’s computer.

We got the fishes delivered back home and we are having succulent dinners regularly. If you happen to visit the Caribbean please let me know. For now you can visit us online at

I hope to see you one day sailing on your yacht in the warm tropical waters. We hope to visit you once again next year. I am glad I insisted to have you as a host!

Again, thanks for this nice day. I hope you are having an excellent season in Ucluelet.

Hi Oly,

Thanks for a great experience! Wife couldn’t say enough to her clients, so all the better for me too.

Thanks for the Hali- was great.

So long, Mitch

From Vickie


We had an awesome time! Captain Kirk did a great job! The weather was great and the sea was as good as it can get. Thanks so much for the trip on short notice.

Thanks again for a great day fishing

From Anna

Dear Matt “Oly” and Mark,

Thank you so much for looking after Danny and Brendan, they had a whale of a time and couldn’t stop talking about how great Mark was.

Brendan gave me some of the business cards that Mark gave him. We will make sure everyone who wants to fish in Ucluelet knows where to find you!

Matt,Marc, and Kirk
We wanted to thank you guys again for the AMAZING 2 days thatg we spent on the water with you. We were telling stories of our trip to anyone who’d listen for weeks after getting home. We took most of our pictures and put them into a power point presentation for us to look back and remember this trip. I have distributed the disc to all of the guys on the trip and have included one for you guys as well.

Matt, you and your team delivered on your promise of an awesome experience which I don’t think any of us have ever had before. Your service and attention to detail, while stil having a bunch of fun, was exceptional. I know that there was a lot of talk amongst the group about doing this again and I can assure you that if we come back to the west coast you guys will be our first call.

Again, thank you for all of your hard work and keep whackin and stackin’ those smileys !

Take it easy guys,

Matt – thanks for the great day fishing, crabbing, and just being on the water. The trip with you and Barkely was the highlight of our vacation. We are having friends over this saturday to see how much of the fish we can eat up. Best wishes for a great season. We’ll plan on doing it again sometime!

From Brian

Thanks again for a great day of fishing. Kirk was great and the four of us had a
great time catching all of those halibut and springs. Hope to book you next year as this is becoming a must annual tradition of whack, stack (and vacuum pack)!


From Su & Robert

Hi – I have been meaning to send you a note letting you know how much all of our guests have enjoyed fishing with Kirk. They find him to have great knowledge of the area & fish, he is also courteous and pretty fast! They have extrolled his virtues at the breakfast table and I know that you can expect booking next year from those who chose to fish elsewhere and for those who were just “thinking about it”

Take care
Su & Robert
