I’d like to introduce you to a new addition to the Leisure Suit Charters Team, Spencer Horning. You might have seen his face fishing the North Island waters and I would like to familiarize you with the guide that you will see running my boat this season.
Spencer is Transport Canada Certified and his passion for fishing will show with his attention to detail with his gear and fishing techniques. Spending his last few summers guiding in a lodge setting, he decided to try something different and work for a smaller, independent company (where a lot more is expected of him!).
Whether you are a first time angler or a seasoned veteran, Spencer’s enthusiasm will keep you entertained throughout the day.
Don’t miss out on a great fishing trip this season, we still have a few prime fishing dates left!

This fall did offer some excellent salmon fly fishing opportunities. The fishing this season was a little different that the previous years… We normally get a good blast of rain in September and this year was an exception. Going months with no rain, there wasn’t much for water in most of Vancouver Island’s rivers. Meaning we were fishing off the beach’s and estuaries catching chromers into October. There was no shortage of fish! We we’re just catching them in the salt water. No complaints! They were hot and feisty with the take and could peel an unlimited amount of line off the reel, that is; if you could keep them off the barnacles.
We were often sharing of fishing space with the locals!! The bears were actively fishing if fairly close proximity. There wasn’t a shortage of food for them so they weren’t bothered with what we were doing. This isn’t always the case, some big boars can get aggressive with their fishing spot.
There is 5 weeks left until the end of the 2012 ocean fishing season. If you haven’t booked a fishing trip in this area before and are thinking about it, you still have time left to fill your freezer! Here are a few pictures of some great people and their catch while fishing out of Port Hardy, Port Mcneill and Telegraph Cove this year.
Another “skunk free” season so far and did you know that we GUARANTEE a catch on all full day charters. We are the only charter company on the North Island that offers this!
I wanted to share a well put together video of the Northern end of Vancouver Island. This video gives a realistic look at what Port Mcneill and Port Hardy have to offer to anybody who appreciates nature and the outdoors. I live in one of the most pristine places on the planet!
