Men Holding Their Catch

Saltwater Charters

The cool waters of the North Pacific are just down the road from Terrace, with some of the best saltwater fishing on the Northern British Columbia coast. Our saltwater excursions are chartered out of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, from May through early September. You'll find Chinook (kings), Coho (silvers), halibut, lingcod, and both king and Dungeness crabs.

You will be angling from a white, 22' Grady Seafarer, fully equipped with fishing gear and safety equipment. You can plug herring for Chinook, fly fish for Coho, or go jigging for halibut, lingcod, or bottom fish. At the end of the day, we pull the crab traps and load up with crabs.


Saltwater Rates

Our saltwater rates are by the day. While placing two fishermen per boat is ideal, we are able to handle a maximum of four guests per boat. We can supply essentially all tackle and bait at a great price. Please note that Canada has an HST tax on services that is added to our costs.


Prince Rupert - Kitimat

Open from June 1 to August 31 for saltwater fishing, these cruises take you inside the coastal islands. Here, the sea teems with crabs, shrimp, clams, halibut, and bottom fish. Above them, hungry Chinook, Coho, sockeye, and chum salmon can be found. In the approach waters to Prince Rupert, spectacular saltwater fishing opportunities abound next to breathtaking scenery in the Douglas and Work Channels.

Freshwater Charters

If you are looking for thrilling angling, try fishing for the area's giant "Spring Kings:" seasonal steelheads. Your guide will put you onto the best and wildest steelheads in the west, and if that is not enough, try catching some Northern Coho, sockeye, trout, or char for your angling enjoyment.
