We provide all Rods, Reels, Tackle, Bait, Fish Cleaning, Boat, Safety Gear and Fun. Make sure you have a layer of warm cloths, wind breaker and the ability to switch down to a T-Shirt and shorts when the heat is on!
What's not Included
We encourage you to bring your lunch, snacks and beverages. We can also make arrangements in advance for these to be provided at a cost per person. We suggest that you bring a cooler for the end of the day to hold your catch!
Footwear & Clothing
Flip Flops are NOT good boating shoe wear and the number one problem with clients getting cold feet. The water is only 7 to 9 degrees C so if the wind comes up and the sun goes behind the clouds even in July or August it will be cool so wear socks, waterproof boots or hiking shoes, pants (can have shorts under in case it gets warm) t-shirt, sweater and coat. Nothing ruins a great day fishing faster than not being prepared for a west coast climate.
Bring a hat, plenty of sunscreen and sunglasses to best enjoy the day.
A fishing license for "BC Tidal Waters" is a must.
Click Here on "Get My Fishing License On-Line" to get your license and be sure to get the Salmon Tag if you want to fish for Salmon.
Make sure you PRINT your license before you get to the Dock. Everyone must have a valid license to fish in BC salt water and you need your Salmon Tag to fish for and harvest any salmon. A PDF copy on your cell phone is NOT GOOD ENOUGH! You must have a printed copy with you. We do NOT fish in area 121 so ignore the warning about that while online, we fish in area 19 and 20 only.
Bring along your digital camera (I will have one on the boat and share all photos with you after the trip ).
Go-Pros are popular and you are welcome to bring along. We have a extended boat hook that can work as the underwater pole fitting for the "GoPro" type cameras.
Please Do NOT bring any Bananas!, Leave them at home they are bad luck on a fishing boat! if you don't want to land any fish this is how to help make that happen.
Sea Sickness is not fun!
During the summer the weather is mostly calm and beautiful but as winter approaches, spring and fall, what starts out as a nice day can get choppy and rough, especially when the tide is opposing the wind. We will try and keep you in protected waters as much as possible but it may get rough from time to time. If you are one who easily gets sea sick it is beneficial to take one of the new ginger based gravol type drugs. They are non-drowsy and work well. The best way to administer these is to take the recommended dose the night before as well as the morning of the trip to be sure to have a great day.
Waiting until you feel sick is often way too late!.
