  • “My expectations for this west-coast charter were high, as I have fished on the other side of Vancouver Island for years. I was very excited to land one of those “monster” chinook salmons I hear are so often caught on the west-coast. Double headers were on the menu that day, and we limited out in no time! My guide Carlos was extremely knowledgeable about the area, his ancestry, wildlife, fishing techniques and local hot spots. I’ve already booked again for next year, and will hopefully get another 30-pounder! Thank you for the most excellent fishing experience.”
