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 2022 were set at one halibut per day per angler equal to or less than 40” (about 30 lbs.), or equal to or greater than 80” (about 275 lbs.). Regulations for 2023 will be determined in January.
You can keep a halibut without size restrictions by purchasing a government issued halibut tag. Each tag is valid for a single fish of any size and does not count against your regular charter limit, although no angler may keep more than two halibut a day of any combination. Most of the tag halibut kept in recent years fell between 80 and 150 pounds.
