Vicious Fish Charters

Serious Fishing on the Beautiful West Coast of Vancouver Island, BC

Are you looking to test your fishing skills for trophy sized salmon, halibut, rock cod, red snapper, or ling cod on the rugged west coast?

Join Captain Des Hatchard and Vicious Fish Charters for a great day’s fishing for up to 8 guests. Our two welded aluminum boats are set up with your comfort, safety, and fishing success in mind -- built to the latest Coast Guard standards, equipped with a head (toilet), and decked out with all the latest electronics, i.e., radar, colour fish finder, and GPS plotter. The 26-foot "TideLine" offers a heated cabin, while the 23-foot "Flounder Pounder" has an open walkaround design for easy access fishing.

We depart early in the morning from Port Renfrew towards Southern Vancouver Island’s remote and bountiful fishing grounds. You can enjoy the scenery and wildlife along British Columbia’s spectacular coastline as we motor out. When we arrive at the fishing destination, you may fish for your choice of Halibut, Chinook Salmon (Kings), Coho Salmon (Silvers), or bottom fish such as Red Snapper, Ling Cod, Quillback, and other assorted rockfish.

With 20-years experience fishing the Queen Charlottes, and North and South Vancouver Island, Captain Des will do his best to ensure your fishing experience is as fun as possible!

"What They Say..."

I have been fishing with Des of Vicious Fish Charters every season since 2003. It has been so much fun that I have worked myself up to 3 or 4 trips a year now. Whether you are looking for halibut, springs or fly fishing for coho, Des knows where to find them and how to catch them! D. Drab, Shawnigan Lake, BC
