    Default Halibut fishing in Seward, old school

    Hey there last minute halibut fishing fans, I had a trip very recently and decided to stay close to home and give it a trip. We ended up a little short of a limit, like 15 halibut for a group of 9 fishermen but they were all very nice fish 50 - 205 pounds and it was all within sight of Cape Resurrection( 3 - 10 miles). I fished three areas for a couple of hours in each area and there were nice fish at each spot. Depth ranged from 300 - 350 feet. Might be worth a trip during the coming week, when the weather is going to get better.
    Good luck!!

    That sure covers a big sweep of geography right now, doesn't it. Supposed to take friends out today, but at 7 it was already hitting the top of the 10-25 westerly forecast over here. And more to come for the next few days. Time to step into the waders and play on the rivers, I guess.

    I am leaving for PWS shortly. I have posted several times before that often my largest fish are caught in September fishing 300'. I was looking at some old pics last night and I have caught at least 5 fish between 150 and 200+ pounds in Sept. just in the last few years. I usually get 1 or 2 days in before the boat gets put up. I sure hope that proves true this trip. If not, hopefully the shrimping will go out with a bang.

    A few more days and I will be right there with you!

    I had the pleasure of being on the mentioned trip. It was probably the best grade of fish I have seen on a trip. As usual, Andy and Jeff worked their tails off to get us in to good fishing, and that is why I book only with Crackerjack!
