Ucluelet Halibut Fishing Guided Charters

Halibut fishing on the outside waters of Ucluelet is at its peak during May and June. It is the chicken Halibut capital of British Columbia. Halibut in the area are generally 12 to 25 pounds (best eating) and are so thick at times that you can hardly believe it.

All of the good Halibut fishing during this time is 22 to 25 miles from shore. This is our daily target distance. The water is 290 to 320 feet deep and we use 16 to 20 ounces of lead to stay on bottom. We catch a good number of Halibut while trolling for salmon but our primary method is bouncing bait off the bottom with a 16 to 20 ounce weight. We use good quality rods and reels that maximize the feel and fight.
