My buddy is giving me the gears to go somewhere for a multi day trip. Mostly my concern is being protected and safe, yet able to fish. I have a 16’ welded runabout so I don’t have the desire or balls to go offshore. Both of us have done trips in larger boats to Barkley and Nootka so I was considering Esperanza ( I think it may be more protected too). If we went to Barkley we would probably launch out of Ukee or Bamfield and Camp in the deer group. Nootka has camp sites and launch with not much of a run to some of the closer spots. Neither of us have been up to Esperanza so thoughts ? We are some what flexible with when we could go but are thinking late July/ August but could go later too. Honestly my buddy is more for the adventure and exploration and I am in charge of catching the fish so I suspect we will mostly target bottom fish, so what areas do you recommend ?
