After more than 29 years resident on the north coast of Haida Gwaii we know a little about the boats required to fish BC’s northernmost waters. Four years ago we custom-designed a new fishing vessel, working with skilled boatbuilders in the northern BC town of Prince Rupert. Refining this prototype, we’ve developed what has proved to be the ideal fishing vessel for us. Stable, smooth riding, fast and incredibly roomy, the new design is a hit. For 2019 we added eight more vessels in two slightly different versions.
The 90-Series Bridgeviews feature a fully-covered, walk around centre console, built-in head facility forward and ample space for the guide and up to 4 anglers. The 80-Series boats are identical but feature an enclosed, walk around, centre cabin – offering additional shelter and comfort. These are really well-designed fishing machines with lots of room to move around and play the fish. For the 2020 season we’ll add 3 more boats to the 80-Series, bringing the total to seven, in addition to the eight 90-Series vessels.
We’ve outfitted these stunning 26-footers with Mercury’s 300 hp SeaPro engine to provide ample power and excellent ocean fishing performance. Set up with state of the art electronics, Scotty downriggers and our premium tackle, the QCL Bridgeview is a true north coast fishing machine!
