What to bring on your Fishing Trip?
Tackle and Bait are supplied for all fishing trips. You can purchase Tidal Water Fishing Licences locally or on line at www.dfo.ca/recfish.
The Pacific Ocean can be chilly in the mornings so dress in layers, and make sure you have rain resistant clothing. Do not worry; if you do get cold all boats have a cabin to warm yourself. You will be starting early in the morning, so be prepared. Ever heard: “the early worm catches the “Halibut””…or was that supposed to be bird catches the worm? Hmmm…
You will also want to bring your camera, sunglasses, rubber soled footwear, and any personal items you would like to have.
How do I get my fish home?
Our fishing packages include professionally packaged fish processing (done by our local Hardy Buoys) ready for your trip back to Calgary regardless whether you drive or fly.
On boat only day charters, you are responsible for processing and packaging your catch. We will clean or filet your catch in the event that you want to do your own packaging.
Operating for the past 27 years, Codfather Fishing Charters has 5 available boats and experienced Captains on all. Enjoy your safe fishing vacation with a salmon or bottom fishing charter in Port Hardy, on Vancouver Island BC, Canada.
