West Coast: Ground Fish Variety

  

Overview

Get a taste of something different. B.C. is famous for Salmon, of course, but there are plenty of other fish in the sea. The ocean floor off the wild, wet, west coast of Haida Gwaii is home to many species of delicious tasting bottom fish including huge Halibut. This remote area with open seas makes it a great, novel challenge for experienced anglers.
