  A fisherman need only glance at any map or chart of the British Columbia coastline to get some idea of the limitless halibut fishing opportunities available in this vast province. From the wide open waters of the Dixon Entrance at the BC - Alaska border, to Race Rocks in he middle of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, this coastline offers more than enough halibut haunts to keep any angler busy for an entire lifetime.

Cities, roads and ports have been built near some of BC's more productive halibut grounds, while fishing lodges and charter operations have sprung up near a few others. Some of the province's  halibut hot spots, though, are truly in the middle of nowhere, miles from any human activity. Because much of the coast is lightly developed and sparsely inhabited , it is a safe bet that some of the province's halibut hotspots have yet to be seriously explored.

Below are just some of the places you may want to try.
