Rodgers Fishing Lodge is located about 90 miles due west of Campbell River in Esperanza Inlet. Rodgers is one of the busiest fishing lodges on the B.C. coast, entertaining over 1000 guests a year. They also enjoy one of the longest seasons on the coast, operating 19 weeks in 2013. This will be their 31st year in the Sportsfishing business and their 20th year in Esperanza Inlet.

Rodgers has shown a remarkable rate of growth over the past 3 years due mainly to an aggressive, innovative and successful marketing programme. Their gross revenue has more than doubled since 2010 and 2014 looks to be another banner year with over 550 guests already booked. The Lodge has a location second to none as it is ideally situated to take advantage of some of the most outstanding fishing opportunities on the BC coast. The owners love the business and wish that they were 30 years younger. However, they feel that it is now time to turn the reins over to someone who shares the same passion for the outdoors and who is looking for a wonderful rewarding lifestyle.

This past spring and summer, there were Black Bear on the beaches near the Lodge every day. Bald Eagles are regularly seen by the lodge. They have the largest colonies of Sea Otters on the coast and the Gray, Orca and Humpback Whales pass by on their way to and from the Bering Sea.

The addition of Tuna fishing this year will add a new dimension to the business and add solid business to the months of August and September. The Tuna fishery is going to be a huge recreational fishery in the future for West Coast fishing lodges and Rodgers fishing Lodge is perfectly positioned to take advantage of it. Historically the Tuna in their migration pattern will follow the warm water temperatures that occur along the Continental Shelf. In Rodgers Fishing Lodge’s location the Continental Shelf is just 12 to 15 miles offshore as opposed to 50 miles offshore for places like Tofino and Bamfield.

If it's doing so well why would they sell...

Pretty understandable...running a lodge is not an easy gig

Boy, a new Burkie sounds cheap in comparison :chuckle:

But seriously, they advertise many of the side perks (Sea Otters, etc.), but the Chinook fishing in that area in early August can be outstanding.

Very interesting opportunity! 1.2M could be a steal depending on what assets are included and what the margins and overhead costs look like. The fleet of boats alone could have originally cost that.

Wouldn't that be living the dream....and don't forget all the remote and secret little rivers around there with summer and winter-run steelhead
