Multi-Day vs. Full-Day Fishing Charters: How Do You Choose?

When you're ready for your next fishing adventure, one of the key decisions is whether to opt for a full-day charter or a multi-day excursion. While both options offer unique experiences, full-day fishing can be ideal for you if you prefer a more condensed, time-efficient outing.

Here's why you should consider a single-day fishing trip:

  • Convenience: With a limited timeframe, a full-day charter maximizes your time on the water, ensuring you can make the most out of your fishing adventure.
  • Variety: Our full-day charters still allow you to explore different waters and fishing spots, increasing your chances of catching different species.
  • Skill-level accommodation: Full-day charters are ideal if you're new to fishing or if you're looking to gain experience (even if you have lots of it) without committing to an extended trip.

What Are the Best Times of Day to Fish?

You can catch fish any time of day, but it's true that timing can sometimes be a primary determinant of your success.

Here's a general outline of how the time of day can affect your fishing technique and productivity:

  • Early morning hours: The first few hours after sunrise are often prime for fishing, as many species become more active during this cooler period. This is why we depart at 6 a.m.
  • Late evening/twilight: As the sun begins to set, fish tend to feed more actively, making the twilight hours another productive period.
  • Overcast: Cloudy conditions (a common occurrence in Yellowknife) during the day can extend the peak feeding times, as fish tend to be more comfortable in reduced light levels.
  • During the day: While the midday sun may send some fish to cooler, deeper waters, you can still effectively target fish by using the right lures and techniques, such as targeting shaded areas.

What Are Some Proper Fish Handling Techniques?

Part of being a responsible angler is learning and understanding proper fish handling techniques to ensure the well-being of the catch and the sustainability of their population, even when you eat what you catch.

Here are some fish handling techniques to keep in mind:

  • Keep the fish in the water as much as possible and limit air exposure to reduce stress.
  • If you're removing the hook, use proper lip-gripping tools and avoid tearing it out.
  • For fish to be released, unhook them without removing them from the water and release them gently headfirst.
  • Use clean cloths, coolers with ice, and sealable storage bags to keep fish for consumption chilled.
  • Adhere to regulations regarding size and catch limits to promote sustainable fishing practices.
