Fishing boat for a day ONE DAY OPEN ONLY!! - $200 (THURSDAY)
Reply to: [email protected] [?]
Date: 2008-08-27, 11:44AM PDT


I AM ABLE TO GO TOMORROW (THURSDAY).

My plan is to fish Vancouver Harbour out to the Bell Buoy, T10, and the Cap. If you don't know what this means, that's OK; I do. It's Salmon fishing which is pretty decent right now, (but there's no guarantees.)



I have a 19 foot Bayliner totally set up for fishing. If you pay the expenses, I will take you fishing. I am not a charter boat, but rather looking for a few people who like to fish as much as I do and will share the costs. (I have $20,000 invested in the boat already.)

I’m going to go fishing.


Boat has a bed and a toilet.

Expenses include:

Gas (Truck and boat).
Launch.
Bait.
Maintenance (Wear and tear)fee.
Lost or damaged gear.

Total cost for the day is $200 plus any gear lost or damaged.
I will take 1 or 2 people (Total of $200 either way.)
This will be for a full day of fishing.
Ocean or river.
I will supply all gear although you may bring your own if you wish.
You pay $200 up front and $100 deposit for gear which you get back the balance at the end of the day.
We must meet in person or at least on the phone first to make sure we will get along well.
You bring your own food and beverages.
I fish with you.
We fish a good 8 hours at least.

An 8 hour charter will cost you around $800. I have been known to fish a lot longer than that, I'll let you decide when you're done.

If you're interested, respond to this ad.

IMO, the way he's worded the ad constitutes being an illegal guide. "You pay the expenses", "If you don't know what this means, that's OK; I do", etc.

Setting a firm price, with a deposit for damaged gear and laying out what the cost includes would definitely sway a judge if it went to court.

he is only illegal guiding if they go to a freshwater location. There are no guide licenses for fishing in saltwater water. So the part where he offers "Ocean or river" should only say ocean to be legal.

Okay.....so between GOFISH's response to noxcape....I am having trouble with "deciphering" all the "wrongs" in the two statements with negatives and double negatives. :eek: ;)

Can I just ask the plain and simple question. Can I jump on my boat "in the ocean" and just start charging $XXX.00 per day for fishing? I would assume "personally" I would want some insurance but can I throw an ad on Craigslist or in a publication advertising my services with nothing to back me up other than I bought a boat, some gear and can rig up an anchovie??? Or does the "wording" of what is offered and what is being compensated for come into play. Does one need a lawyer to word this or is it "free reign"??

Oh...and before people start jumping all over me.....I am just trying to clarify the "scenario"; I am not looking to do it OR did I post the above on Craigslist. :peace:

IF I were a saltwater charter and called the ad into question; were it to go to court, the wording of the ad would probably be 80-85% what the judge would base his decision on.

Warrior......I guess what I am trying to get at is referenced above in one statement. Do I not need a guiding license for the saltchuck? What "qualifications/certifications" do I need to be considered a "saltwater charter/guiding service/saltwater guide". :confused:

Hey warrior,

If what you say about not needing a licence to guide in salt water is in fact true (I have no idea and have not looked into it), would that not also cover the tidal portion of the fraser as fishing is not divided into freshwater/saltwater but rather tidal/non-tidal?????????
