During the summer months Pacific Halibut move into the shallower waters off the Alaskan cost for feeding. This means that they are plentiful and we are able to fish for them all summer long - with charters running from May through September. We launch our Halibut boat, the Badger, throughout the season out of Homer, Seward, Anchor Point and Deep Creek. An Alaska Halibut can weigh from as little as ten pounds to well over 300 pounds, but they always make for some good fishing and some excellent eating!
Here is some early season big halibut taken already this year on the Badger . . .
The same day guest Robert Holt landed a nice Halibut on a fly with Dustin and the Badger and his party also filled a rack with a 124lbs and a 52lbs. This 20lb halibut was a true brawler for Robert, using his 10 weight fly rod at slack tide.
Besides the fact that Halibut fishing in Alaska is always loads of fun and exciting, as you know, it can also be the gift that keep on giving - to your dinner plate - all year long!
"Thanks to you and all of your crew, we had a great time in Alaska. Brought home 62 pounds of Halibut, 14 pounds of Salmon, some Halibut cheeks and Razor Clams! Thanks again for all of your hard work and attentiveness." - Charles Johnston
