About Captain Al

I've been fishing in the oceans since I was 14 years old. I thoroughly love fishing and catching record sized Salmon and Cod. Some 45 years later I'm teaching others to fish and enjoy the nature of the oceans. I started catching Salmon and Ling Cod in record sizes in the Port Alberni canal and Bamfield area at 14 years old. My parents owned a 14 foot aluminum boat so I'd head out every chance to enjoy all I could catch. 45 lb Springs were common in those areas.
