A typical day fishing will start anywhere from 5:00 to 8:00 A.M. depending on the weather, time of year and the targeted species. Once all guests are on board I will be sure to brief everybody on the locations of all life jackets and important safety equipment. Upon request we can bait and set crab traps on the way out of the harbor to be hauled at the end of the fishing day. We will then proceed to travel to the fishing grounds which are generally about an hour away for both salmon and halibut. Along the way you can take in the scenery whether it is the pristine wilderness of the north coast, vast amounts of bald eagles, whales, bear, sea-life, and the surrounding historical First Nations sites.
Realizing that not everybody has experienced this type of fishing, I will be sure to provide on going instructions and information on proper techniques to be used in hooking, playing, and eventually landing your fish. On most days, weather permitting and if requested we can target both salmon and halibut with success. The final portion of the day will be spent pulling the crab traps that were set in the morning.
Upon returning to the dock, more photos can be taken before the fish is processed and bagged. Salmon will be cleaned with head off while all halibut and bottom fish will be filleted. Freezer bags will be provided for your catch. Most local hotels will allow you to store your catch in their freezer overnight or until your departure.
For an experience you will not forget, book early so that you can reserve the peak season. If you are a group larger than four, call ahead and we can arrange other boats and operators in order to accommodate your numbers. This is a common practice in these areas, as most operators work together to provide the best experience possible.
