Fantastic experience! Accomodations were great, crew was fantastic, food was exceptional. Fish were plentiful and eager to be on my hook, spent a lot of time with a full bent rod, put blood in the boat and fish in the box...doesn't get any better than that. The boats were terrific machines, get you there fast and reliably and provided a great feel of security even if you were a novice at boat handling, these Boston Whalers are very forgiving. Thank you all for a great memory I hope to repeat it soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hakai Pass is a magical place located on the central coast of British Columbia. This hidden oasis was discovered as a stomping ground for massive Chinook Salmon, legendary coho and unbelievable amounts of bottom fish. Joe's Salmon Lodge was started by Joe Vilidka in 1985 and the secret soon got out about the beauty and the bounty of Hakai Pass. Starting as a deckhand in 1987 current owner Doug Stuffco has loved the lodge since day one. He became owner in 2000 and ever since then he has been filling the lodge with loyal guests, new friends and avid anglers. You will arrive at Joe's Salmon Lodge as a guest and by the time you leave you and Doug will be best friends. The lodge is entering 2016 with a new partner in Carl Rosenau. Carl fell in love with Joe's Salmon Lodge after fishing for half an hour at the Gap, an amazingly scenic and fish filled location near the lodge. He and his wife Grace can be seen entertaining guests out on the water or up in the bar with their kind and embracing presence and contagious laughs. Joe's Salmon Lodge is unlike any other fishing destination on the coast. We allow you to come and be yourself and have the time of your life while catching the kind of amazing fish that can only be found here. Book a trip with us this summer and see why our guests keep returning year after year. Come and join the Joe's Salmon Lodge family and experience the kind of fishing and laughter that only happens one place on earth. Only at Joe's. ... more less
