    Best area for 3-week salt water fishing adventure?

    If time and money were no object, where would you go on the BC coast for a three-week salmon, bottom fish, prawn and crab fishing holiday?

    This will be self-contained self-guided trip on a large boat with a smaller fishing vessel, probably a whaler for angling.

    You can't go wrong with the North Coast.

    I'd go to the Broughtons and Knights Inlet. Not a far run to round Cape Caution and head a lil north either.
    its gonna take a life time to hunt and fish all this

    Where is the big boat normally moored? No sense cruising past a bunch of awesome fishing on your way to QC if the boat is moored down here.

    Thanks Salty, I know that area a bit. Seined salmon on a Sointula boat in the area and also commercial-fished crab and prawn there too. Before the salmon farms anchored on the good spots though.

    Ya the salmon farms messed up some cool spots all right Michel. There's still tons of good all weather anchorages in the Broughtons though. There's also quite a few logging landings closer to the mainland not used at a given time as you probably know. Its all water access logging there's no roads in the area just short haul roads that lead to the log dumps most of them have a decent dock. There's also an old govt dock south of Knights.. Minstral Island? iirc
