My grandpa comes up every year twice to homer and seward to go fishing for the silver derby and the halibut in homer. This year he is thinking of heading to valdez but is worried about how far they have to drive the boat to get to good halibut waters. I know everyone goes to different areas and you can catch halibut of the dock. What i am interested in knowing is do the charters drive farther to get out into open waters to get the halibut. Miles of hours of drive time would be nice thanks to all.
