Welcome to Latitude 51 Fishing Lodge

Latitude 51 Fishing Lodge is operated by Ken & Diane Jenkins. We have fished in the Port Hardy area since 1981. In 1986 Ken started Codfather Charters and operated it until 2015. Ken and Diane kept the 31’ Bertram and the Lodge. Mike Kelly of Tides and Tales Sport Fishing assumed the operation of Codfather Charters and is doing a great job.

Ken holds a 60 ton Masters Licence and as well is a certified Tidal Angling Guide.

Ken has been fishing our local waters for 35 years and has amassed An encyclopedic knowledge of the best spots for whatever species is the target of the day.

Deckhand Barry Dooley has extensive experienced in all kinds of saltwater fishing and is known locally as the Guru of Steelhead Fishing on the North Island.
