This is a tough trip to beat! We call this fishing trip our 5 star adventure for a 3 star price. The boats, gear, guides, food, and lodging are all top shelf, and everyone comes home with a ton of fresh fish! It’s also an extremely easy trip to do with little to no fishing experience required. This is an incredible ocean fishing trip in a stunning and remote area of British Columbia. The lodge is located on Moresby Island in Haida Gwaii. The area is made up of rugged rocky shorelines, secluded bays, quaint villages, ancient temperate rain forests and mile after mile of vast sandy, unspoiled beaches.
Incredible service, Huge Kings, and abundant Halibut is why people return year after year,
Your trip will include:
The lodge sits across the road from the harbor just outside of the little town of Sandspit offering a spectacular view. You will find the lodge has a cozy and relaxed atmosphere, comfortable rooms, and excellent food. The lodge is perfect for family trips, small groups, and corporate getaways.

You will experience the best Pacific saltwater combo fishing in Canada. While on your trip you can catch king salmon, silver salmon, halibut, cod, yellow eye, and many different rockfish. The boats accommodate three or four per boat plus your guide. Usually you will head out in the morning and troll for kings or silvers and once you limit out head out to jig for halibut and other bottom fish. Catch processing is included in your package and guests typically leave with about 70 pounds of fresh salmon and halibut. At the end of each fishing day your catch will be processed, packaged, flash frozen and then boxed for your trip home. If you haven’t had halibut or eaten fresh caught salmon you don’t know what you’re missing out on. Many say these are the best eating fish they have ever had and come back each year for more!
British Columbia has regulations in place to help protect their bountiful fishery. These regulations allow halibut under 65 lbs to be kept. The fish kept average between thirty and fifty pounds and you are allowed 2 per person.
Each year they release multiple Halibut over 200 pounds! Last seasons big fish measured 7’2” and over 300lbs! It is important to release these big breeders as they help protect the fishery for years to come.
King Salmon is 4 in possession 8 total 20-30 pound average on these fish
Silvers Salmon is the same as above
4 lingcod per person
8 rockfish in total
We recommend that you pack light (25 lbs.) to maximize your airline baggage allowance so that you can take home as much fish as possible.
