Come experience some of the finest salmon & Halibut Fishing the West Coast has to offer aboard The Linda Sue ll with a born and raised local of Tofino with generations of fisherman in his blood (Captain Joel Nikiforuk). The Linda Sue is a 30 ft Conquest Boston Whaler nothing but a 1st Class Fishing Vessel that has been fully rigged out for all the fishing and trapping the west coast has to offer, so in other words any kind of fish you want is only a short cruse away
