This June I went on my second charter with WardoWest. After last years catch I couldn't wait to finish all the salmon in my freezer and load up again this year. We fished two days and limited out each day. Cod, Halibut, and loads of salmon. The new boat is top of the line with top notch equipment. Dave's expertise had us into fish all day when we heard other boats were getting skunked. We even saw some killer whales while we were out there. Amazing couple days on the water, can't wait till next year!

very impressed with every aspect of this operation.
Dave took me out on a 4 hour charter at 6:00 am.
Back at 10:00 am with a stack of salmon and halibut.
Hard work, local knowledge and fun are the key ingredients to the success of Wardowests charters.
Hoping to be back next year for more great fishing.

I've been on several fishing charters and this definitely ranks as the best. Dave Ward went out of his way to make sure we had fish in the boat and lots of sightseeing along way. We started the day off early and within 5 minutes of baiting the first lines we had 2 good sized salmon in the boat. It only got better from there - while we were catching fish other boats were struggling to find them. Dave is professional, passionate and a great host! He provided top notch service (including having a processor waiting at the dock when we arrived to take my order) - and all at a very competitive price! I certainly hope to be joining him again.

I would highly recommend WardoWest Fishing to anyone who wants to have fun and catch loads of fish! We started early in the morning and had the pleasure of catching 12 fish by mid day!
We snacked on a gourmet lunch in betweeen the biting fish. The guides were super friendly, passionate and professional in every way. We will definitely be back.
