To have a great experience, I suggest engaging with your Captain, communication is key. Bring along the items suggested, and keep an open mind. There are never any guarantees when fishing. I’m sure your Captain is as eager for you to have a catch but it doesn’t always workout that way. With a skilled Captain, which we had, and a little luck you might just be taking home dinner! We went out, hopeful that we would catch one or a few fish and with the attitude that time on the water is never time wasted; so we couldn’t lose! Good luck! C

Captain Andrew has vast fishing experience. Anyone can fish, but catching fish is an entirely different story. Andrew puts his customers on the fish! He’s comfortable fishing with beginners, seasoned anglers, and those that have fished throughout their lives. Each fishing excursion is based on customer input. Recommend reserving the captain for at least two days so opportunities are available for salmon and bottom fish.

I’m very selective with boat captains. I like fishing with Captain Andrew since he is conscientious about the needs of his customer. Andrew is able to adapt to the skill level of his customers Captain Andrew knows secret fishing spots. His knowledge of tides helped to maximize our success on catching fish. I’ve gone with other captains prior to hiring Captain Andrew. These other captains were not professional, lacked experience and just wanted to take my money without providing a positive experience. Andrew will go above and beyond to make sure it is a positive outcome. Not only did I catch large salmon, I also caught an 38 lb. Lingcod based on his knowledge of secret fishing spots. Highly recommend Captain Andrew.

Bring a big cooler for all the fish you will be catching - they helped us pack up the fish and we got it all home without making a mess in my car but it would have been easier if I thought to bring my big cooler.

Рыбачил с Sea Leggs Fishing Adventures – 24' Июль 22, 2023
See Captain Jesse, Sea Leggs . But looking at reviews, it looks like all the fishing charters are doing a great job ! Be sure to dress warmly, long sleeve and hat with toggle to stay on, bring a few snacks and drink..listen to your captain and learn! If you're uncertain about sea sickness, take a tablet before you go and have some on board just incase. Wear comfortable footwear and take a camera..enjoy the day and be prepared for amazing scenery and animals! We saw seals and eagles..we had the BEST day , thanks Captain Jesse !

Sooke is an easy place to access from Victoria, the scenery is beautiful and it feels very remote even though it is only a short drive from Victoria. The regulations are a bit restrictive for keeping fish, but a great accessible place to fish. We did not fish for Halibut, but understand the Halibut grounds are very close to Sooke which would make Halibut fishing easy

We were a bit late in the season and we were not able to keep the wild Coho we caught. We would not have been able to eat more than the Spring we kept anyway since we are on holiday's. It was an enjoyable day on the boat regardless.

Didn’t get any salmon, time was too early for the run but in the next few weeks it’s going to get insane. Tristan’s gonna hit the big ones, he’s definitely done his research.

I would suggest doing a full day of halibut fishing since the chinook season doesn’t start until August.

If you really want to increase chances for catch, make sure you check the runs for the area

April is hit or miss because of species restrictions on areas and Pacific Salmon is out of season till late in the month or May, so just Halibut. You can crab and get prawns though!

We couldn’t have gotten a more perfect day! Sun was shining, wasn’t too windy, fish were biting! We definitely over prepared but never know what to expect with being on the water

Price was good for 5 hours. Lots of experience and Willing to answer questions. Book halibut full day so boat can travel to better Halibut options.

I did not see a lot of other boats catching a lot of fish. Few fish per boat. However, we limited with Full Melt Charters in less than 2 hours. Definitely go with this guy!

Investing in some Gravol before the trip is definitely not a bad idea if you are not used to choppy sea.

Take the early charter! Get your fishing license online before you leave home. Then drop your catch at Finest at Sea to prep & freeze for the airplane ride home.

Some days are windy, waves are big. Choose a day with light winds / rain is no factor with a cutty cabin.

Yes most definitely. Beautiful and easy 50 min drive from Victoria. Quick ride to local salmon spot so you spend more time fishing and less time getting there.

If you want a bigger catch you should check the dates of when you can keep the wild salmon.

It is not the best season but we still kept two Chinooks, and released 5-6 small ones.
