Fishing Charter Information and Prices
Salmon Charter information | Halibut Charter information
The boat that we use is a 40' welded aluminum vessel. This boat is equipped with all the latest electronic gadgets, which include a GPS, sounder and radar. The Seal Cove as she is called, sleeps two doubles and two singles and has a full galley, head and shower.
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 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 rain gear, bug spray, sunglasses, binoculars, food and your camera, and don't forget your fishing license.
The Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans issue 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 Information and Prices
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. The largest Salmon caught in the sound was 76 lbs., and 50 lb.+ being caught virtually everyday. Terry's Charters largest Salmon weighed in at a whopping 57 lbs. and was caught by Pat Zsomber of Lethbridge Alberta on a tour with Terry.
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.
