P6220111Homer has been labeled the halibut capital of the world.  It sits in an ideal location to access some of south central Alaska’s most prestigious halibut grounds.  Most boats that are seeking larger will venture well outside of Kachemak Bay and the port of Homer and enter the Gulf of Alaska where it meets Cook Inlet.  From here, depending on the weather, boats will run to their proven hot spots and bigger 20-50lb. and larger fish are much more abundant as are other species such as ling cod and rock fish.  There are a number of days where boats cannot make this long run into open water due to rough weather. Fishing can be limited to near shore locations sometimes within Kachemak Bay and the average size of the fish can decrease.

mikemannFor those looking for a hard core salt water fishing adventure, we do have captains that are based from Homer that specialize in grand slam ocean fishing.  These trips are more expensive than the halibut only trips as they spends a far longer day on the water seeking out untouched halibut locations as well as targeted areas for ling cod and also rockfish in addition to also looking for saltwater salmon opportunities.  These 10-12 hour charters take one day Alaska Fishing to the extreme and are very popular among those looking for bigger halibut and a wide variety of fishing experiences in one trip.
