This week on the water
8 Chinook and 110 pounds of Halibut and its still May! That was our full day salmon/ halibut charter yesterday at Long Beach. In addition to the 50 and 60 pound halibut that we kept an estimated 130 pound fish was released as it was too big to keep. (max size for BC sportfishing is 133cm). Our clients had their catch processed at Trilogy fish company which is conveniently located at the top of the dock and will be packed for air for the flight home. If that sounds interesting, drop us a line to set up your charter.

It has been a productive week of Sportfishing in the Tofino area. The seas have calmed from their winter furry allowing us access to the offshore grounds on a more consistent basis. The Longbeach tack has produced nice Chinook (King) salmon this past week primarily on gear resembling the big needlefish that have been abundant in that zone. Halibut fishing continues to produce quality fish, we managed a couple in the 60 pound range the last time we set up. Charter are available daily. 250.266.0587

May is a great time to get out for a charter. The halibut are around in good numbers and as the seas settle out after a turbulent winter our access improves. Lingcod and rockfish are a great way to round out a bottom fishing trip. May typically brings the first push of returning salmon to the Tofino fishing area. Beat the rush and take advantage of spring pricing. Please call or email for details. email@example.com
