I have a 18' klamath skiff with a 40 horse on it. Would really like to take it out and try for Halibut this year. I've never had my own boat out the saltwater so I'm just trying to get a feel for where a safe place would be that would also be worthwhile for halibut. I've been in a small boat on resurrection in about two foot seas before and remember how uncomfortable it was. Basically, a two hour ride out to resurrection seems too much for my boat. Could I find some fish a little closer to the launch in homer, deep creek, any where....?
