Super comfortable boat took us to the bounties of Barkley Sound. Salmon trolling, rockfish jigging, crab trapping and oyster gathering. Great photos of eagles. Overnighting was in the warmly heated cabin of the boat while archoured in natural bays.

Well, it's a very comfortable boat with lots of amenities, (cooking, coffee, toast etc.). Felt very safe during the one day trip and the scenery is just outstanding however the objective of the day was to catch Salmon. No Salmon, no catch, no happy!

"If we understood fishing 100% there would be no fish left very quickly" True conditions are not optimal, a gale the previous day and the gill netters were still out, I asked to meet further up the sound but you passed thanks for the challenge

Hi Dan, Thanks for taking the time. Your group was memorable and your chef skills made the trip special. Wish more fellows like you came more often. Team players always welcome. Your salmon and halibut was awesome and the oysters on the fire wow.
