Alaska Halibut Fishing Charters
We offer the most productive Alaska Halibut fishing trips in this region. Alaska Halibut is the bottom king of the North Pacific. These fish are pure muscle and deliver astonishing runs on heavy tackle. Outside the sheer thrill of fighting these goliaths, not many will contest the idea that halibut are one of the best eating fish around. All of our fishing charters for halibut are done in the comfort of the Inside Passage, just a short run from the dock.
While the ideal fish for the table may be between 20 and 40 pounds (and there are plenty of them), your chances of hooking fish from 100 to over 300 pounds for your photo album are also excellent. Our current record halibut is 466 pounds caught during our 2008 season (our guests have tallied five halibut over 400 pounds inlcuding a 405 pound fish in July of 2017). Limits for the current year will be finalized in February. Limits in 2017 were one halibut per day per angler, equal to or less than 44” (about 40 pounds), OR equal to or greater than 80” (about 275 pounds). Any halibut between 44" and 80” were kept using GAF permits (trophy halibut tags available for purchase).
