    Default fishing for halibut out of kenai

    Has anyone fished for halibut at the mouth of the Kenai River? I have heard many stories over the years about people fishing a few yards or so offshore for halibut in Kenai, can this be done?

    They have been getting a few off the beach lately.
    There is already a thread on this.

    I've gone 0-5 with 4 people in the boat each time this year, thats $100 in launch fees! I've given up! I've seen a handfull of small flounder caught this year and we caught 1 skate.

    I have a spot out of kenai in 25' of water that produces pretty good for me. No barn doors, but some 50-60 pounders on occasion.

    The way I read it that is only from the Ninilchik river south to bluff point and only until June 30th. Did I miss something?
