- Intense and Fun Fishing Experience
- Albacore Tuna are Well Known for Texture and Taste
Tuna fishing is nothing new to Vancouver Island’s west coast. Commercial fishermen have been catching albacore tuna for years along our coastline. However, it is fairly new to the sport fishing sector on the Island, and we are excited to be offering this thrilling fishing experience. Double, triple and even quadruple headers are not uncommon once fish are located. Tuna are a schooling fish and once on the school the action can be intense. We will be targeting these fish by trolling at high speeds of 5-8 knots with lures like tuna jigs and zookers on the surface the majority of the time. We will run 5 lines off the boat, but once fish are located and feeding, it is usually very tough to keep more than 3 in the water at one time.
Albacore tuna are well known for their texture and taste, and are one of Adrian’s favourite fish to eat. The limit this year is 15 per person per day – they are powerful and extremely fun to catch.
