Default Halibut Fishing

So my dad went Halibut and King Salmon fishing about 4 years ago and absolutely loved it, and I am now in a position to take him on another trip. Was thinking about a 4 day 5 night or possibly longer. Any really great places to go. I am not a big fan of Salmon but love Halibut.

I fish Kodiak Alaska every year in July. Great overall bottomfishing there, with a constant bite of ling cod, black rockfish, yelloweye rockfish & halibut, just to name a few. We mainly fish jigs, ranging from 8 oz all the way to 16 oz depending on depth & speed of drift. Salmon is strong in the salt that time of year also...

Feel free to PM me for more info or call me in the shop to discuss.

Happy Hoildays,
Chris

Sorry for the delayed response guys, and I appreciate everyone that has chimed in here. What I am looking for might be a bit difficult to come by up there but this is it. It would probably be my dad, uncle and myself fishing but there wives and my girlfriend would probably also come up as well. So I would like for there to be something that the ladies could do while we were fishing, as none of them particularly like to fish. Also when are the best times to go.

Thanks,

Erik

If I were taking my wife, and wanted her to have something to do I would stick to either Seward, Alaska which has some touristing and shopping right there or I would look at Homer which has a fair amount of touristing available. In homer there are some ferries that take you to different communities around Katchemak Bay for touristing (shopping and eating) by boat. there are plenty of air service sightseeing tours and bear spotting tours and plenty of shopping on the spit. They also have a free museum on wildlife, fishing and the fishing culture of the homer area and the Aleutians, DO NOT miss this if you go there.

around Homer there are lots of charter boats to choose from. you will have all the 10-30 pound fish you care to pull on, or you could go looking for bigger fish depending on who you book with and what you decide on. I believe that the common practice in alaska is to price charters by the person, so make sure to ask for a whole boat price if you do not want to find a couple strangers are on your trip. by my recollection the rates were around $300- $350 per person in 2010 when I went last time.

I am going to fish this may near anchor point with a friend who lives there. Last time up (2010) I was catching 20-30 pound fish every time my jig hit the bottom for the hour and a half right at the high tide. Crazy and fun.

another thing to consider is that the tides have a big impact on fishing for halibut, so I would talk with some charter operators about choosing dates by the most desirable tides in the range of dates that you are thinking of going.

Have fun,
Jerry

Seward is easy to get to by Alaska standards. Rent a car for the 2.5hr drive after you land in Anchorage. It's about a 2 hr run to the big fish, but I've caught some big ones out of there. Call the Fish House and they can hook you up with a good skipper and boat...http://www.thefishhouse.net/ Plenty of lodging in town too.

Some good options so far . . .

If you want the best fishing you have to get off the beaten path. I have the fishing and lodging you're looking for.

Do a search here on THT with my user id and "alaska" and see for yourself.

Pm me or call me at 907-321-9668

I'll let the pics and my reputation speak for themselves and you decide.

-Rob

Southeast Alaska, off the beaten path, 60 miles from the nearest town, no charters or lodges on our island (yet. We are building now) too far for most commercial boats to fish. We don't run 2 hours to fish, or 1, or 10 minutes. We catch butts inside the bay and only go a few miles out to get salmon and such. Caught this butt inside the bay this year, would have let it go but an overzealous passenger pulled a "Quick Draw McGraw" on the girl before we could stop the jerk. The upside is it is just as fine eating as chickens. So much for the myth I used to believe.

Anyway, we won't be open for biz till 2014 and are already booked through 2014 and part of 2015.
I didn't forget to mention where. It is not in our best interest to say much until we are up and running. I had a snag fall out of a tree I was felling and broke my neck so am in for surgery soon and our plans have to stay flexible...
Try southeast, maybe out of Craig, but be careful, there are a couple to avoid. Fishing is still ok out of Craig but a 1 hour run,,,, yecchhh
