Stories from Our Fishing Trips

Wow! Who knew fishing could be so fun! The owner/operator of this charter took care of every detail and ensured we hauled in our limit of halibut and salmon. Watched whales, porpoises and otters surface from below while eagles circled above. Incredible experience from start to finish – returning home with a cooler of fish! Thanks Gibby and crew!

These are the best in Port Hardy!!! They have the best guides and equipment. They always get you to the fish!! We limited out on Salmon and Halibut in one day of fishing. It was truly amazing. Chad is great guy and runs a fantastic operation. If you are going fishing in Port Hardy, these are your guys!!

Best saltwater fishing experience I’ve ever had. Love the fact that every day you get to catch salmon, halibut and bottomfish! Good boats, great guides, and a unique business model. Can’t wait to come back!

These guys are great, will definitely be back as soon as I can. My Dad, brother, and I spent three days fishing with our guide Bryan who was amazing and a lot of fun. Best guide/boat captain I have ever fished with.

Fishing with Chads was great since he takes care of the fishing, hotel, food, etc. The hotel Chad books is literally at the dock, awesome view and convenience! You show up to the boat in the morning and your lunch and snacks are already on board! After a long day of fishing they take the fish to be fileted and freezer packed, too easy.

Caught the biggest salmon and halibut of my life on this trip, and amazing lingcod too. Price was extremely reasonable especially after converting to US currency.

Would go fishing with any of Chads guides but will be asking for Bryan next time I come up!
