I got all the reds I could eat in a year early this week, but a friend of mine and I are going to go down for a super quick suicide run Friday night and Saturday morning. I'm confident I can help him get as many as his family wants in the morning and once we're done, I'm quite curious to run out into the mouth a little ways and give it a shot for some halibut. Last week, I saw two small boats, at separate times, cleaning small halibut. I figure this would be the best time to try, since they're probably goring on the salmon scraps and salmon themselves right now.
I've gone through and searched the forums for any post about Kenai and halibut and have seen that some people might have a place or two to point me towards. I'm in a 18' skiff with a 30 horse motor so I'm definitely planning on staying close and only proceeding if it's very, very calm. I also figured I'd run out a little before high tide and stay for only an hour to avoid the strong running currents heading back in. If anyone has an idea of where to go, what fishing gear to use or generally how to go do it, I'd appreciate feedback. Unfortunately I do not have a depth/fish finder. Thanks all. Andrew.
