Charters set sail on a 23-foot Sea Sport vessel equipped with a Garmin GPS and JRC radar. While on the expedition, patrons fish for a variety of salmon species, including chinook, sockeye, and silver salmon. On past trips, participants have caught 5- to 50-pound fish. Charters depart from Becher Bay Marina through October 1; after that date, they depart from Cheanuh Marina.
Good Time Dave’s Fishing Charters
Before he founded Good Time Dave’s Fishing Charters, David Eves spent 10 years fishing off the west coast of Vancouver Island. As a result, he brings a vast knowledge of the water and extensive fishing experience to his trips, as well as a Transport Canada certification, marine first-aid training, and enthusiasm for his work. David chauffeurs patrons out onto the water on a 23-foot Sea Sport that seats four. The vessel aids amateur fishermen in their quest for the perfect catch with a variety of high-tech tools including a Lowrance colour sounder that uses sonar to locate areas with high concentrations of fish and a black box that infuses the water with an electrical current to attract salmon. While on an adventure, patrons can hunt and hook Pacific salmon and halibut, or enjoy the rocky surroundings and fill souvenir jars with crisp clean air.

“Make sure to choose an earlier time. At dawn, as there are typically more fishes at first light.”
