Around here, it’s common to catch Chum Salmon, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Pink Salmon, Crab, Flounder, Rockfish, Sculpin, and more if you come at the right time of year. During the trip, you might be trolling, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Captains Jesse Sadler and Jonathan Skucas welcome you aboard a 25’ Pursuit that holds up to 5 passengers. It comes with downriggers, outriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels, and lures.

Before coming aboard, you’ll need to buy a local BC fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Families who love fishing together will be glad that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available. It’s recommended to bring snacks, drinks, sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor and glass bottles.
