Full Day Charters

UCLUELET – MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUG, SEPTEMBER

FULL DAY CHARTERS 8-10 hours

Full day “salmon and halibut combo” trips are the most effective and popular way to fish the west coast of Vancouver island because it allows us to travel up to 25 miles offshore, giving us access to some of the most spectacular fishing for both salmon and halibut.

Each trip is customized to where the best fishing is located and to what species the guests want to target. Decisions on where to fish and what to fish for are always discussed between the guide and guests before leaving the harbour.

WHAT TO EXPECT – The day begins at dawn, which is usually around 5.00 to 5.30 am. The usual routine for May, June and July would be to head offshore to the halibut grounds twenty three miles out. The halibut grounds take approximately one hour to reach.

after limiting out on halibut, we then spend the rest of the day fishing for chinook and coho. Quite often we fish for the salmon right next to the halibut grounds or on the banks closer to Ucluelet. August and September we might spend some time fishing for trophy chinook salmon along the rocks and then go offshore for halibut and coho.

Most people fish for at least 2-3 days in order to get the full fishing experience. The trips are customized to where the best fishing action is and to what species the guests want to target.

As the guide, I always believe in getting input from my guest before we even leave the harbour.Then we make the group decision on where to go and what fish to target. After a full day of fishing we generally arrive back in the harbour approximately 2.00 pm.

We finish the day by pulling crab traps and clean/icing your catch. Your fully guided charter includes bait, tackle, shaved ice, and fish cleaning.

Half Day Charters

UCLUELET – Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March and April

HALF DAY WINTER CHARTER – 4-6 HOURS

Half day winter charters are ideal for the person who has limited time or just wants a sample of the west coast fishing experience. Half day winter charters can be arranged to start anytime in the morning or afternoon, but generally we like to start early in the morning and finish up around noon.
