World-Class Fishing

Fish & explore the protected waters of North Vancouver Island. Catch Salmon, Halibut, Rockfish, & more.

Captain Llyod knows these waters really well and got us into salmon as well as many species of rock fish and he offers a nice treat by pulling his crab and prawn traps for his guests. Was a delicious meal last night of fresh spot prawns and Dungeness crab while our fish was processed in town by Hardy Bouys.

If you want to catch fish on your next trip out to the north island, then Reelin’ Shores Fishing Charters should definitely be on your list of things to do. Our time on the boat was a great experience with Captain Lloyds great personality and laid back style. There is nothing but good things I can say about this charter.

A Must-Do Experience!

Wildlife abounds on your tour! You may see bears, sea lions, eagles, and even whales while you fish. Captain Lloyd is invested in fulfilling your North Island adventure according to your wants and dreams. That may include your use of a fishing pole, a camera, or a painting canvas – Captain Lloyd is happy to accommodate you on your day.

The North Island has the best salmon and halibut fishing in the world. The regular occurrence of whales and orcas put you in the presence of a power greater than yourself. The protected waters on the inside allows you amazing fishing in the majestic fjords.

We can design your day to focus on filling your freezer, sport fishing (catch & release), or sightseeing and artistic desires like photography or painting.
