Vancouver Island fishing is fantastic year-round, with salmon, halibut, lingcod, and snapper all providing exciting sports fishing action. All anglers dream of a day of non-stop reel screaming action and Port Renfrew fishing delivers! The legendary Swiftsure Bank,approximately 12 nautical miles from Port Renfrew, off Vancouver Island’s south-west coast, boasts some of the most productive sport fishing in British Columbia Canada.

Come to Port Renfrew and join us for a full or half day fishing adventure on our 24 foot vessel the Jolly Rogers, which has been custom built and outfitted for fishing local waters. With her fully enclosed and heated cabin she offers a warm, dry, and comfortable ride to local fishing grounds.

Your skipper and guide John Rogers (J.R.) is passionate about fishing and loves to share his knowledge and experiences with his guests. Book a trip and make those fishing dreams come true...

JR can find the fish and make them bite. The fish cooler was overflowing and my arm was sore from reeling in the halibut and salmon. Sensational fishing and beautiful scenery off the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
— Kevin Arndt, Vancouver

John picked us up for our two day fishing adventure in his well equipped boat. We caught our limit each day in halibut and cod, plus a 22 lb. King Salmon, 2 red snappers and a beautiful coho salmon. We put crab traps out at the end of each day and picked them up the following evening. We caught enough crab for a very nice evening meal. Our fish was expertly cleaned and the halibut & snapper fileted. John's knowledge of where to go and what to use was evident in our daily catch. It was one of the best fishing trips I've ever experienced and you can well imagine why I am already planning next year's fishing adventure with Jolly Rogers charters.
