I have fished with Larry on five different occasions on the salt over the last five or six years. As a north island visitor since 1981, and a seasonal resident, I consider myself a credible source of northern Vancouver Island knowledge. Larry, and Leisure Suite Charters is the #1 guide who I go out with, and who I send my family out fishing with. No doubt, there are some great guides in our area, but Larry really stands out.
If I was to sum up my praise of Larry and Leisure Suite Charters in four points:
1. Extremely knowledgable about ocean and fresh water fishing. His passion for the sport is contagious.
2. Top quality gear, first class stuff. I was a knuckle buster reel convert after day-1 on his boat.
3. Larry is enthusiastic, extremely personable, and cares about the long term health of local fishery and resource.
4. Larry is flexible, if the conditions are not right, he'll find the best available alternative with safety in mind.
I have not fished with Larry's guides Spencer and Trevor yet, but hope to very soon.
p.s. photos are of my favorite day of fishing ever, out with Larry.
