What an existing day it was for my son in law! We caught our limit, Rollie is such a great guide and knows so much. It is often hard to know which fishing charter to pick, Sooke Salmon Charters is the best.

We, along with another couple, joined Rollie Rose aboard his boat for a full day of salmon and halibut fishing. We met at 6:00 AM and finished up at 4:30. The fishing was very slow which made for a long day but 2 of the 4 of us managed to get their salmon limit and it was fun and exciting... More

We were with Rollie for 6 hours recently on a salmon charter. We did catch 4 salmon and 2 crabs and we were very pleased with that. Rollie definitely knows the waters and does his best to ensure that you take home some great catches. However, we were not impressed with his "bedside manner." We were very upfront with him... More

I have just recently registered to be able to respond to your post on this site. While I do regret that your experience on one our trips was not up to your expectations I feel I must respond to some unfair comments and quotes of things said by myself on this trip. Firstly there are areas on my boat which... More

Highly recommended. Rollie has a very clean boat, knows where his craft (ie. where the fish are likely to be). This charter was for halibut and I am proud to say that Rollie made it possible for our three family member to get one each. The largest being about 50 pound. I agree with Maestro, DBB and CivanoSeattle. Very accurate... More

Rollie is very accomodating and knows his craft. My brother and I took my dad out for three days and had a blast. Great weather, beautiful area and very relaxing except when bringing the fish on board. Rollie suggested we can and smoke some of our fish and we did. It was great. He suggested where to stay and that... More

I have fished with Rollie many times through the years and he is simply the best fisherman around. Additionally he is fun to be on the water with. I highly recommend him for your next fishing experience.

My 3 young children and I went out with Rollie salmon fishing in August 2009. It was a total blast for all of us. We all caught salmon with Rollie's expert guidance, one of which was a 40 pound record for that year so far. He certainly knows the waters around Sooke and was full of information about the surrounding... More
