In April my wife , son and myself had a Halibut charter with Doug from D and D charters out of Sooke.
We had fished Salmon with him the previous year and had a blast , catching our limit of salmon while enjoying the west coast beauty in a very comfortable , warm boat with a washroom as well !
We left the dock at about 630 am and dropped the crab traps to pick up later after fishing.
After a smooth ride towards Port Renfrew we reached our destination and Doug had us fishing in no time at all.
After a bit we were. into our first Halibut which came in at 25lb and then a second one the same size a little while later.
Our last fish was the nice one coming in at 42lb and it sure made a racket once it came aboard.
I can see why they never bring the larger ones inside the boat.
On our way back we retrieved our crab traps and had an awesome catch of crabs as well to take home.
After securing the Boat Doug was very Gracious to Clean and bag our catch and all we needed to do was pick up some ice for the cooler.
I can see why his charter is very popular as he knows the fish and their habits which make it easier to catch and with his comfortable boat it makes the day very enjoyable.
We will defiantly be back and I have already book a salmon trip in August with him.
Look him up if you want to be in the action and have a very memorable day!

We had a relaxing day on the water with Doug April 5, 2014. We caught salmon. The equipment was up to date and worked well. The boat was more than comfortable with a stand up head. Doug was great resource for coastal information to share with us prairie folk! We learned about tide waters and currents besides under the sea life. Everything was as advertised. Doug's friends at the dock were friendly too! Got to love those dock seals too!

Doug was an exceptional host with an excellent boat and fishing equipment. He took us 45 minutes down the Coast where we fished away from other boats. He had good knowledge of the developments along the shoreline and provided great information. We set up at 8 in the morning, started catching at 8:30 and had our limit of halibut by 10:30. Fish averaged 22 - 25 pounds. Had a leisurely trip back to Sooke where we checked the crab pots and came home with two good sized crab. All in all a great day, fishing and weather totally cooperated with a terrific guide. Thanks and we all highly recommend Doug's charter.

What a totally awesome experience in my own home town. I found D and D Fishing Charters through Trip Advisor so natch I will post back on our adventure. Captain Doug met us right at the gate this morning and took us aboard. Gave us our safety lesson and pointed out where everything was kept. Having never gone on a charter before, Doug fully explained how the downriggers worked and how to pull the rods out and how to reel in those fish. We caught 3 real nice Coho all between 6-8 lbs. Would have loved to have caught more but sometimes the fish don't want to bite anymore. Doug was an awesome guide and so knowledgeable and just great fun. He even gave us 7 beautiful Dungeness Crab and no Doug, we are not giving them back. Would highly recommend D and D Fishing Charters and I can't wait to book our next trip with Doug.

We've done 6 Charters with D&D and all have been excellent experiences. Boat is spotless and Doug is a fine Captain. Highly recommended!
