Born in Victoria, John Chau grew up fishing for salmon in the Sooke area. Thirty years since he hooked his first fish, Chau now shares his expertise with fellow anglers through guided charters on his 25-foot Pursuit Cuddy boat. During the spring and summer, Chau’s clients hook chinook salmon anywhere between 15 and 50 pounds. Autumn brings coho salmon, and in the winter, feisty feeder chinook weighing between 4 and 12 pounds roam waters just minutes from the dock.

The Sooke area is typically calm year-round due to the lack of ground swell, and its teeming waters attract wildlife such as bald eagles, sea lions, and killer whales eager to gain a better reputation among fishermen.

To the knowledgeable and licensed staff at No Limit Charters, “Cool Change” means more than just the result of storing toonies in the freezer. This is, in fact, also the name of their 28-foot vessel, which departs Victoria Harbour daily for four- and eight-hour fishing charters. During these trips, anglers seek salmon and take advantage of regional bottom fishing with the help of two GPS sonar chart plotters, Shimano rods and reels, and Scotty down riggers. If nothing’s biting, crews still enjoy their cruises with tunes that stream from XM satellite radio.
