Lucas and Ryan met while playing hockey together for the Everett Silvertips in the Western Hockey League. They soon became best friends and roommates on the team. Lucas shared stories with Ryan about fishing in his hometown of Port Hardy, BC and how it was some of the best salmon fishing in the world. One summer Ryan came to visit and fish with Lucas in Port Hardy. He was blown away by the natural and raw landscape of Northern Vancouver Island.
Since that visit, Ryan and Lucas have dreamed of starting their own fishing charter business, and they are excited to have made that dream a reality. They are prepared to ensure that you not only have the time of your life fishing, but also a relaxing and comfortable experience every second in between. So bring yourself, your friends, or your family along for an unforgettable experience. We’ll take care of the rest.
Lucas GraysonHead Guide & Owner
Lucas grew up in Port Hardy, BC. He is proud to call Northern Vancouver Island home and has spent his life fishing the coast. Lucas has been working as a fishing guide since 2014 - taking guests on trips out of Port Hardy and the Queen Charlotte Islands. Lucas loves sharing his passion for fishing with his guests and has a way of making everyone who comes on his boat feel comfortable, welcome, and safe.
Lucas' love for being on the water extends past fishing - he also loves to surf. When he isn’t fishing, you will likely find him searching for waves on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. He is excited to share his knowledge of the coast with you and looks forward to being a part of your north island adventure.
Ryan grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan. His early memories of fishing were with his brother, casting spoons into the lakes in an attempt to catch a walleye or a jack. Very soon after Ryan and Lucas met, Lucas invited Ryan to Port Hardy for some summer salmon fishing. Even though Ryan explained to Lucas that he was only a so-so fisherman, Lucas was convinced that he could get Ryan a fish - and he did. During Ryan’s first trip to Port Hardy, Lucas found Ryan a 25 lbs Chinook/Spring Salmon. Ryan was amazed at its strength and how hard it fought the rod. Needless to say, his first experience ocean fishing off the coast of Vancouver Island completely ignited a love and passion for fishing.
So even if you are a land-locked, small lake, part time fisherman like Ryan was, he promises that your experience on the north island will be something spectacular.
Our days out on the water will be spent in a 25-foot NorthRiver Seahawk Offshore. The boat has an enclosed cab complete with a table, heater, and washroom, offering a comfortable place to relax, for adults and children alike. The boat is well equipped for a great day of fishing with top of the line gear, rods, and reels.
