The charter includes the fuel, the captain, ice,
bait and top of the line fishing gear, Shimano
rods and Penn reels for salmon and halibut
A typical four day charter would leave the dock
at 6 p.m. for a forty mile run up to the BC -
Alaskan border, with one stop to haul crab traps
and arriving approximately 9 p.m. that evening for
a crab feast. Then off to bed as 4 a.m.
comes all too soon.
The following morning we will fish for Tyee
salmon and then weather permitting we head
offshore to some of the best Halibut fishing spots
in the world. Tyee pins are given for fish
caught over 30lbs and are in high demand.
What You Can Bring Along
For your comfort and enjoyment bring raingear,
bug spray, sunglasses, binoculars,
food and your camera, and don't forget
your fishing license.
The Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans
issues saltwater licenses and the provincial
Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks issues
Both types of licenses can be purchased at
sporting goods stores, marinas, department stores,
through government agents' and from many local
resort operators or guides.
Please note that any alcohol brought aboard
should be done so with Safety in Mind as the
What to do with your Catch
Your catch will be properly packaged in your
coolers, ready for transport back to wherever you
live. Please keep in mind that with 400-500 lbs of
fish on average for a 4 day trip, not including
crabs, you may want to bring lots of big coolers.
Styrofoam coolers are available at a fee should
you wish to purchase them after your trip.
General Halibut Fishing Charter Information
The biggest Halibut caught in Chatham Sound last
year was 324 lbs., catching a 100 lb+ Halibut is a
very real possibility on your trip with us.
Although we routinely limit out, our customer
policy remains "No Fish, No Pay", so if we go out
and get skunked the charter is on Terry's account.
