Come out and catch your supper!

Come cod jigging with Captain Jan & Coastal Connections and keep what you catch. Captain Jan’s fishing career started long ago, not only as a life long avid saltwater fisherman, but also professionally as a commercial fisherman and then as Chair of Harvesting Programs in the School of Fisheries at the Marine Institute of Memorial University for 20 years.

We provide everything you need for fishing and once back on the dock we clean, fillet and bag the fish while showing you the biology and lifecycle of the cod. Beginners and experienced fishers alike will be sure to enjoy the scenic Conception Bay and Captain Jan shares his expertise. Participate in a citizen science project; we collect information from all of the fish caught to help Fisheries and Oceans Canada monitor the returning cod stocks. Its fun for the whole family!

Contact us today to book your fishing adventure before it is too late, dates are limited.

What To Expect

Our tours are interactive, so expect to get your hands wet.

Don’t forget your camera (and extra batteries) to capture this amazing experience. If there’s anything our staff can do to make your trip more enjoyable, please don’t hesitate to ask. Feel free to call us in advance of your trip to get an idea of the weather conditions. We’d love to hear from you!

The weather in Newfoundland can change in minutes and is notoriously unpredictable, so it’s always a good idea to be prepared when you come on board.

  • Dress in layers.
  • Wear a comfortable pair of shoes/sandals.
  • Bring pants and a long sleeve shirt.
  • Have a raincoat in case the tour becomes a wet one.
  • Bring a hat, wear sunscreen and sunglasses (polarized lenses do wonders for looking in the water).
