Planning a salmon sports fishing trip to BC?

Larry Quigley - Quigley Sport Fishing Charters
As far as saltwater fishing goes, the best that any fishing charter service can do is guide their guests and catch the legal limit. We left the Port Renfrew dock at 5:30am and made our way out about 20 miles off shore. It almost seemed that within 2 minutes of Larry dropping the downriggers the reels were screaming! Our first customer was a very aggressive Spring Salmon weighing in around 20lbs. We found non-stop action for rest of the morning as we caught our limit of salmon in under 3 hours.

After an outstanding morning of salmon fishing we ran for about 20 minutes to the halibut grounds. Larry was rite on the ball when it came finding the fish. Of course his 28 ft cabin cruiser is set up with all the latest navigational electronics and fish finding equipment. We dropped our lines in at 250 to 300 ft and were all very impressed with the action! Along with our limit of halibut, we picked up a few (delicious) pacific cod, that make terrific fish and chips! 

"Capt'n" Larry Quigley, owner and operator of Quigley Sport fishing, based in Sooke, BC, has been fishing the south west coast of Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Port Renfrew, for the past 13 years.

Needless to say if your planning to go fishing in British Columbia either this summer or planning ahead for next year we highly recommend that you give Larry call! Larry also offers terrific fall and winter fishing!
