A day on the water

 

A Day on the Water

Depending on the time of year I like to leave the dock at daybreak. A typical run out will take approximately one hour or more to reach the fishing grounds. Some days can run as long as 12 hours. I will try my best to get you hooked up with more fish than you can imagine. Salmon, including Chinook, Coho, Chum and Pink school up in the thousands on their way to the Skeena and Nass Rivers. These fish offer some of the best action found anywhere on the west coast. If the day allows us to get to the outside the Halibut and Ling cod fishing can be beyond your wildest dreams. Every year on certain days the large Halibut cruise by. The last few years I have found a few secret spots where the big boys lurk. Some of these fish will test your strength and patience to the limit.

On most days I will set the crab traps in the morning and pull them at the end of the day. The Rupert harbor is home to some of the tastiest Dungeness crab found anywhere.  After hitting the dock I usually like to line up the catch of the day and take some pictures. You never know what picture might make the next cover of the Rupert Charter Boat Magazine. I will clean your fish and depending on your circumstances store them at my house for  later pickup.
