Default Boat rentals on Vancouver Island is only 35per hour. I highly recommend everyone trying it.

I highly recommend everyone trying it sometime in the future. Unfortunately its currently open to island residents only at this time during covid. Hopefully once it opens back up everyone will be able to fish on the ocean for a low cost. split between a few guys. I do recommend bringing your own net though! Our net broke when we landed a fish. Net ended up falling in the water with the fish still inside.

Enjoy the video!

Thanks but no thanks.

I don't go where I'm not welcome.

I've been to Rupert three times. Hooked a Halibut estimated to weigh over 200lb, but no not one salmon, for anyone in the boat on any of those trips.

Not that there were no salmon, just that we were never able to get out to where they were.

I'd like to go back, to see a whale and maybe catch a Salmon, but until the craziness ends it's not worth the risk.

One of my nephews lives in Burns Lake, BIL went to visit his son, stopped for fuel along the way. Went inside to pay and buy snacks, came out to find all four tires slashed.
Truck was parked in plain sight of the till yet no one saw a thing.
And it was the only one vandalized and the only one in the lot with Alberta plates.

Doesn't prove anything I know, but it's enough for me to avoid that province until things settle down, and by then I doubt I'll be well enough to make the trip.

Thank you very much. And if you ever get out this way, I've got a spare room and plenty of parking space, for anything you might be draggin along.
You are welcome to stay here any time.

I know a few top shelf folks over there, mind you most of them are related to me, but obviously there are many more that aren't.

It's the few pot smoking tree huggers I wish to avoid, not the knuckle draggin hillbillies, they is my kinda folk.

Good vid thanks for posting,
Iím on file there, rates were $45 in past years, good to see they dropped them a bit.
They be open to everyone soon Iím sure.
$35, but downriggers, Fish finders, canon balls, it can add up if u donít have ur own gear.
Poor quality net but I bet u wonít pull it up like that again, ha.

We've rented from Pedder Bay a few times. Had a great time.

Very reasonable pricing and good boats.

bring your portable fish finder and a few pink ladies to get down to depth...duct tape for a questionable net

The tire slashing likely has more to do with the coastal gas link pipeline going right by Burns Lake and it being one of the hubs for the project. Thats also close to where the natives had/have everything blockaded, etc so I would bet that has to do more with someone against the pipeline seeing alberta plates and assuming theyre with the pipeline

Most in Burns are very happy to have the pipeline.

Nice work. Those are decent coho for sure. I like seeing all the wild coho too and going back. I'll have to look into boat rentals next year for Uculet if everything works out.

Keep em coming!

I understand that but feel that this is way overblown. Your choice of course. Zero issues for me and my vehicle spent a lot of days by itself. Qualicum was so busy with tourists that it really did not feel like Covid times at all. I would to it again, no hesitation. No need to live in fear for me.

That would make sense if it had happened in Burns Lake but as I said it happened on the way there.

Regardless, there are too many stories of hostility towards Albertans in that province for my liking.

If others chose to ignore the warnings or chose to believe there is no reason for concern, that's their choice. More power to them.

there was most likely always hostility towards Albertans. The news just shows it more since covid. Same with racism against asians. It was always around, just rarely shown on the news. Now you see it from all the news outlets
