ROI!!! ( Return On Investment) You can have your catch and eat it too. At Castaway Charters your catch in most cases covers the cost of your Charter, Fresh Halibut Fillets sell from between 15.00 to 25.00 per lb. So at a 50% recovery you have about 15 Lbs of fillets from a 30lber. Hence @15.00 this one fish is worth 225.00 to 300.00, this covers the single person share cost already, maybe book 3 days so you can get 2 halibut each one of which can be approximately 70lbs. Now who is making the money?

Salmon gets you the same ROI toss in 2 or 3 Salmon each and you will be looking at about 30 to 60lbs filleted to about 15 to 30 lbs. Salmon sells for 10.00 to 18.00 per lb. if you can even find WILD Fresh Caught Salmon in a store. Most is farm raised fish sold by stores. So your Salmon catch is worth about 150.00 upwards to 540.00 So book your 3 days in July or Aug and catch the big ones and remember to book the 3 day special to really enhance your ROI.

This ROI statement also helps in explaining to the Better Half why you are going fishing again, and the awesome filets for her freezer will ensure she wants you to go every year. After all we are hunter gatherers just providing for the family needs.

This is why I spend the extra time Bleeding your fish when caught, rinsing them in our  sea water rinse bath on the swim grid, and then placing them in fresh commercial grade salt ice. Watch me fillet your fish to see how great these fillets are prepared for your return home. Don’t forget to ask about vacuum packing to ensure your fish remains fresh for over 1 year.

Hum sounds like Castaway’s ROI Program should be on your Calendar every year.

“Booked two days of halibut and salmon fishing with Castaway Charters in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. With my 11 and 13 year old sons. Paul is a very professional and easy going guide and was terrific with the kids. He has a network of other guides and they keep each other informed of where the fish are located and what depths and tackle are working the best. On day one we caught our limit of halibut plus four Chinook and five coho salmon and three pertrole sole. We probably threw back another 10 coho that were not fin clipped. Day two we caught our limit of Chinook plus Paul caught his limit, all over 20 lbs plus several more coho and one halibut. Paul takes great care of the fish. He immediately bleeds the fish after they have been netted and them places them in a cooler with ice. We were very happy with our trip and plan to go again in the future. “
