    Default Halibut Recomendation

    My wife and I want to make one last halibut trip before the season ends. I was hoping for some recomendations on charter companies to go out with and what area seems to have the best ocean conditions this late in the summer. Our choices will be out of Whittier, Seward, Homer or Deep Creek. Thanks for any info!!

    Contact Captain Pete in Homer and do a combo charter for halibut and feeder kings. Catching king salmon in September would be fantastic, and word is the fishing has been pretty good lately.

    Matt at Whittier Marine Charters always does very well out of Whittier. Going out of Whittier helps save with driving time and fuel costs. His number is 907-440-9510.

    I'll second that Captain Pete in Homer suggestion from Brian. Still halibut to be had and I've heard of people catching a lot of kings and a bunch of silvers still around, too.

    There are halibut in the bay all year long and often get caught incidentally by winter king fishermen. And some people actually target them. But about now the larger halibut that are planning on spawning head for deep water (like 700' or more). So the halibut get a bit sparse and people just don't like spending the time trying to catch them, especially when there are 5 to 30 lb. kings swimming around the edges of the bay. Personally I'd prefer to catch two 15 lb. kings than two 15 lb. halibut.
