Category Archives: “Fish-On Charters”

The original name of my charter business is Fish-On Charters. I’ve been doing charters since 1987.  It is my main fishing charter business name. Back then fishing was still mainly abundant. I charter fished in Port Alberni and Nanaimo. The streams and lakes and especially oceans were fun to fish.

Now today with the new 2020 regulations from DFO, and knowing our fish stocks are dwindling, the big realization that something has to be done before it’s all shut down.

I’m not sure of the science involved in counting exact cod stocks or even Salmon numbers. Yet most seasoned fisherman notice the changes with lower numbers of Salmon in various areas of BC waters. Cod fish are being caught to the point of serious concern. We are around the larger cities of Vancouver island. People here have a large invested interest in sport fishing. The popularity and growth in fishing has also effected fish stocks. Yet since it’s a great hobby and offers fresh fish to eat, it’s of great benefit to business’s and the fishing industry.

I hope the younger generations have the chance to enjoy this great sport of catching and keeping a few fish to eat. We all owe it to our kids and grand kids, to leave them the chance to enjoy fishing the B.C. supernatural oceans, rivers and lakes.
