I've been fishing Homer and Seward now for about 10 years now for Halibut. I've always looked for sandy bottoms with drop offs and done well, mostly out of Homer. Seward, Not so much. Not too much sand out of seward that I've been able to find on charts. I've got a few holes that I've done decent on but they are hot one week and cold the next in the Chiswell area. I've never really gone left yet. We've had some luck catching a few while drifting over rock piles for Yelloweye and Lings but few and far between. What kind of terrain do you fish? Mud to Rock Lines? Mud? Rock? Gravel? River Mouths when Salmon are running?
Looking for any pointers as I will fish Seward exclusively at the end of this month into August. Any 100+ pound Hens get a picture and released. As much as I love Homer, shutting down Tanner Crab this year has put me into gear to set shrimp pots and prospect out of Seward and fish as well for Halibut, Rockfish, Silvers and Lings. While your out there, if you see the Danielle Rae, give me a shout! Those willing to share will get Shrimp Reports if I have any sucess finding shrimp.
