2019 - Best Chinook Fishing In Years! 

2019 has been the best year our B.C coast has experienced in years.  We have had very consistent fishing everyday! Not only are our numbers up, but the size as well.  We expect the fishing will remain great through 2020 as the DFO scientists are predicting even larger returns next year. 

All of this sound to good to be true? Have a look and follow our social media pages from the links below. We report everyday we go out.

-​"Guide and owner Steve is extremely competent fisherman and knows his stuff. Works very hard at getting you into fish. In the day and a half fishing we landed nine chinook some in the twenty pound range. We retained our limit of six and released the others. One of our better experiences in the last twenty five years. His gear is of top quality and boat is kept spotless. Would highly recommend him as your fishing destination. We will definitely be rebooking next year."

-"Our group of friends had a fantastic two full days of fishing with Steve. He knew just where to go. The boat was sparkling clean and comfortable. We caught so many fish both days! Steve gelled immediately with our wacky group which made our trip that much more enjoyable. We’re already planning our next trip."

May Madness
-"Steve is always commenting that May is the best month for fishing and he didn’t disappoint!! We were booked for a later date this year but Steve said fishing was hot right now and you can always trust that he knows when the fish are biting. Couldn’t have had better weather and hit our limit in just 2 hours!! Can’t wait until our next fishing adventure with Island Pursuit."
