Vancouver Island Fishing Charter Guides

Our team of professional guides love to catch fish!

When you go on a world-class fishing charter you should expect highly experienced guides that know the best fishing spots like the back of their hand. Fishing is one thing, but guiding is another. Our guides have grown up or guided in the area for a minimum of 10 years. Many big BC lodges have a few good guides and the rest are hired each year to fill positions. This does not mean that they know the area, or have any significant experience guiding. If you are lucky enough to get one of the good ones; great! At Reel Obsession our friendly team of professionals will show you a fun, safe and fish filled charter every time. All our guides are industry certified by Transport Canada and meet or exceed all requirements.

Go salmon fishing with Troy a professional fishing guide.


Troy has spent his entire adult life guiding and commercial fishing these local waters. His father has been guiding this area longer than anyone else we know in the industry and is a top producer and great guy to be on the boat with. The apple has not fallen far from the tree here. Troy will do what it takes day in and day out to show you an exceptional day on the water.

Our guide Wade will have you catching tuna all day.


Wade has spent most of his life in and around Zeballos. His father worked for the local logging company until his retirement. Wade has a work ethic like no other. He is determined to fill the limits every time he leaves the dock. The fishing is not quite like it was 25 years ago, but he'll be sure to tell you a story about it. Wade started his guiding career 15 years ago in Kyuquot. If Wade is not on the water or out in the bush, you can probably find him panning for gold in one of his spots.

Adrian fishing guide for salmon fishing.


From the time I could hold a rod I was in the boat or on the shore with my dad. My passion for the sport was definitely handed down. Like I said, it's been imprinted in me from a very young age. I now spend almost 200 days a year with rod in hand, mostly work and of course some play. My uncle invited me to Zeballos 16 years ago and it has been my home every summer since; that's how my career started. Now it's my turn to pass the rod over to my father, son, or guest!

Follow our guide Tallon to fish off the coast of Vancouver Island.


If you can’t have fun on the water with this guy, you may need to rethink your ways. Tallon LOVES his job and takes every aspect of his day out there like it may be his last. He grew up in Kyuquot, the next set of inlets past us. His career started on the docks of a lodge just north of us. He has been guiding and commercial fishing his entire adult life. His work ethic and skills are second to none. If you need one more fish for your limit, Tallon will get it done!

Guest Feedback


This has been my first time on a fishing charter-lodge experience so all I have to say is hands down what an overall exhilarating and epic experience. I can truly see why fishing can be an addiction. The rollercoaster emotions that run in my head let alone my adrenaline flying through the roof wheeling the fish in was more then what money can buy. What an EPIC feeling. My whole trip was freak'n worth traveling especially since I live on Vancouver Island. How can I forget the fireworks on Canada day too. Wow never saw that coming. The staff and all the guests made it feel so quaint as if we were all old friends. Easy to get to know everyone and just enjoying every minute of the 4 days while there. 
The accommodation and staff: The rooms were bright and clean. The meals were more then what we can eat plus they were all delicious. The scenery is just phenomenal. The lodge over looks the ocean. Please check out the pictures that should give you an idea. The staff were more then helpful. Very professional and they go out of their way to make your experience worth while. The fishing guides...WOW super friendly and professional. I can't say more...its worth just to go check it out yourself.
