Jeff Slab (2)Jeff Copeland

Jeff has been a professional sports fishing guide since 1998, and for the past 7 years as co founder/owner of Bon Chovy with Jason. Jeff’s introduction to sport fishing started at a young age learning about the waters of the lower Georgia Strait and has guided up and down BC’s coast. His accumulated knowledge led him to employment with a Vancouver based charter company where he refined his abilities into becoming a professional guide. He subsequently progressed to guiding at two high end sport fishing resorts in the Haida Gwaii. He holds all required marine certificates and licences to safely operate a charter boat. His eye for detail has established his reputation as one of Vancouver’s “top rods”.

 

Luke Brooks


Guiding since the age of 15, Luke has 20 years of guiding experience up and down the BC coast.   From chasing white sturgeon on the Fraser River, to hunting down big chinook salmon in the ocean, Luke has established himself as one of the top rods in BC.   Luke’s jet boat is rigged to perfection and is ideal for chasing sturgeon and salmon in the Fraser River.  Luke’s knowledge and passion for sport fishing and his instincts on the water make him a very respected person in the industry and a joy to learn from.  We are honoured to have Luke as VSFC’s head sturgeon operator.   When Luke is not guiding, he is a fireman with the Vancouver Fire Department.
