Had the best time fishing with this company. Very relaxed and the staff are extremely polite and helpful. Definelty booking again next time I come visit. Highly recommend. Thanks for making my holiday a blast Carly
It would have been a good day without any fish, but getting two big Chinook made the day even better Mike M
Don't think my father or I will ever forget how much fun we had salmon fishing with Bon Chovy (Jason). Had to be the best day I've ever had fishing. Limited out on Spring (avg ~15-20lbs) Appreciate your skill and expertise out there on the water. These guys are pros. Thanks so much for making it such a great day.... Steven Wright

Fishing Charter Report for Vancouver and Sidney
Aug 5, 2022
We are definitely in full summer mode now! The temperatures have been hot, we are on the water daily and we have been chasing fish all over the Salish Sea! Chinook fishing has been good on our full day trips to the Gulf Island's, but on the slow side for our local Vancouver trips. Local Vancouver fishing should perk up now that we are finally seeing some summer like weather and more fish will stage locally, especially coho.
