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 fishing.
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 freshwater licenses.
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 priority.
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 InformationThe 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.
