My wife and I have a pop up tent trailer that we want to tour V. Island with. I love to fish and will be bringing my ocean kayak with me to use, hopefully to do alot of fishing in, as well as sightseeing. I have experience fishing out of my yak in Ca, and feel comfortable on the open ocean. I am looking for advice on an agenda for spending around a month on the island. My dad is also planning on meeting us for a few days to take a guided fishing trip with me. What area of the Island would give us the best chance for the big fish ( salmon, Halibut)? We will be arriving around July 8 - Aug 8.
We did a similar trip last year up to montana. One thing we'd like to try an avoid is packing up and moving to a new location every 2-3 days. Ideally, we'd like to find a number of locations to stay at for 4-6 days before moving on. We like campgrounds with a forest feel as opposed to open ocean. Any help would be appreciated in the following areas: kayak fishing ocean and Lake, camping , best bet for my dad to come for a few days and hook a big one!!
