Why a 24 Searay Laguna is our boat of choice!
Well Searay is a top notch boat builder for one and the other is the layout and design. The ride is smooth and dry the helm and cockpit are very roomy. Fish wells are enormous and we need them most fishing boats have poor storage which will include a cooler in your way but not with our vessel.
Our Vessel and Gear
Ucluelet Charters fishing boat is a 24' Searay Laguna built to fish the offshore banks. The boat is powered by a 300hp Yamaha outboard. A 9.9 Yamaha Highthrust outboard is used for trolling and as a second back up motor. Dependability is very important to us and Yamaha outboards are proven workhorses in our waters. Our boat offers a very roomy cockpit and fishing deck with large fish lockers. You will find our boat clean, comfortable with all safety equipment to Transport Canada standards. There is a head / toilet on board this vessel. Ucluelet Charters is a fully licensed and insured.
We only use gear and baits that work. We use natural baits like anchovies or herring, although we often use plugs and hootchies when fishing deeper waters. We use light weight rods fished off electric downriggers, with or without flashers. The reels are single action "mooching" reels, so you can feel the fish actively fight... the blistered palms are just part of the fun! Heavy duty rods and star drag reels are used when targeting Halibut. We have recently added Shimano Tekota trolling reels as an option for new anglers and kids to keep it as fun and simple as possible to reel in the big one!
Why we run 4-stroke Yamaha outboards
Why we run Yamaha 4-stroke outboards is because reliability is number one on the water. Yamaha has a proven reliability track record. Yamaha four stroke outboard power is extremely quiet and clean running which equals absolutely no smoke.
We all have our favorite fishing tunes! The boats equipped with a great stereo bring your CD's or an Ipod and we will plug it in! Tunes great fishing and great people well it doesn't get any better than that!
