$289 for a Private Fishing Charter for Up to Four ($600 Value)

Guides take out parties of up to four anglers aboard a covered 26-foot Sea Ray with a 300-horsepower Yamaha to fish for salmon along the south coast of Vancouver Island. Targeted species and fishing methods vary according to season. From autumn through spring, for example, charters focus on 5- to 15-pound feeder chinooks with light tackle. Halibut charters head out every month except January. Guests may also schedule a crabbing or prawning charter instead, and can include a wildlife tour to see animals such as bald eagles, sea lions, and porpoises.

Reel Obsession Sport Fishing

The fishermen lay their catches out on the dock: a haul of meaty king salmon, halibut, and toothy ling cod. The guides of Reel Obsession Sport Fishing take out anglers all year to reap catches such as these, leading charters along Victoria and Vancouver Island into prime fishing waters such as Zeballos, Esperanza Inlet, and Nootka Sound. These spots teem with different species of salmon, depending on the season. During the spring and summer, trophy chinook and coho salmon flood the waters on their way to spawn in the river systems. Some years also bring pink salmon, distinguished by their humped backs and fondness for wearing pink sweatbands. Halibut also lurk beneath the salmon runs, with occasional lunkers known as barn doors reaching more than 200 pounds. In addition to outfitting guests for salmon and halibut fishing, they also have a scenic west coast lodge and guides can also take them out for crabbing, prawning, and on wildlife tours to see bald eagles, seals, and migrating whales.
