Poor results on fishing. Our first fish was caught on an anchovy and then the guide changed gear and low quantity and quality from there. They seemed hesitant to use bait. Will not be using this group again.

Four of us again went t to Ucluelet to try our hand at salmon fishing, this year not as fruitful as last with regards to take home, but with the new more comfortable boat (Weldcraft) we had a great time, Brought in over 10 fish and enjoyed seeing a grey whale as well. Thanks Darren for another great time.

I have been on some other charters before. Darren with Big Bear Salmon Charters was far the best I have fished with on the west coast of North America. Its like he knows where the fish are. Just by watching him and his techniques makes you know your in good hands. Had the best time of my life with Big... More

My sons and I went out for 4hr fish with Brent. First time salmon fishing for my two boys and my first time out on a charter. Brent put us in the fish right away with both the boys landing a nice Chinook each. Unfortunately my youngest got a little sea sick, Brent was great with him and ran him... More

This our first salmon fishing charter from Ucluelet. We had four adults and 7 y/o grandson chartered for 4 hrs to minimize the risk of boredom with an "all-day" fishing chart. We left the Big Bear dock with Darren at 7 AM and returned about 4 1/2 hours later after a very productive day in the more sheltered waters of... More

This was my second time and my boyfriends third time on this trip. Just keeps getting better. The boat was amazing and Darren our guide was so fantastic. He knew where to take us and get some fish. We maxed out just like the other times we went. Highly recommend this trip to anyone.

From the very beginning to the end of the trip the service was exceptional. Not too often are you provided with gum boots, survival suits/rain gear to keep you dry and warm and Islander reels for a true fishing experience. Darren and Gord were both great guides and kept us on the fish when the bite was on. Everyone had... More

Our day's started out rather early up at 4, at the Big Bear office by 5, now normally this would never happen, but to be on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island Its all good, sleep when you die right? When we got to the office we were greeted by our guide and manager Darren. After a cup of... More

Went out with Darren and Fishing with Rod for the first time ocean fishing this mid April. I enjoyed myself right from the start! Service was excellent, the guide supplied us with full rain gear and made sure that we would be comfortable for the rest of day. Once aboard the boat there were places to store our lunches and...
