    Default Returning Soldiers looking for charter in October

    Group of Soldiers returning from Afghanistan are looking for a charter to take them out for halibut around the second weekend of October.

    Does anyone know of any charters still running then? They'd prefer closest to Anchorage (Whittier) but will go south. Looking for full boat (6-8 guys) for the whole day.


    Thank you

    Thank you
    There are still quite a few charters running out of Homer at that time if you feel like coming down this far. Though most of them are running winter king charters. The bigger halibut tend to start migrating out to deeper waters when the temps drop, so a lot of people don't target them that late. But there are still halibut around.

    And before some jerk starts accusing me of trying to drum up business for myself on the forum, I can't take 6 to 8 people halibut fishing, so I couldn't take you even if I wanted to.

    That's a tough question to answer. I'm not sure what the ACTUAL manufacturer's stated capacity is, but I can seat 7 adults, but they'd all have to be pretty good friends. But when I book charters I won't book more than 5 people at the most for comfort reasons and because you can really only fish 4 people at a time off the back deck. Then I only have a 5 person halibut permit, so even if 6 people wanted to go along that were REALLY good friends and didn't mind being crowded I could only allow 5 people to fish.

    That's why I go with mutt (Coho Dave) cause I don't have to be friends with anyone else cause the boat would be just myself!! Lol well I guess coho Dave and his first mate penny are allowed. Anyway Dave get whatever business u can however you want. Any other business would do the same. Happy fishin.

    I usually head over to the Seward Military resort for Halibut charters when I'm on the peninsula but they run Memorial to Labor Day. You could try giving them a call and see if they can put you in touch with one of the 4 Charter Captains and see if they'd take care of you. Seward Resort most likely won't be able to do anything but the Captains may. They've always been good to me but I've never tried Halibut in October out of Seward. They will most likely run to Montague and that can be a nasty transit closer to winter.
