Last year, my wife and I took our two children (ages 4 and 8) to Petersburg to try Alaska fishing for the first time. Well, 21 coho and 1 halibut later, we're in love with Alaska and are trying to figure out a trip back this year.
We want to specifically target halibut. Have been talking to a few operators about Kenai. Does anyone know if the halibut fishing in Kenai is worth making a trip for? Any recommendations on operators/lodging?
Maybe even an alternative destination? Petersburg was awesome but the flight to get there with all the stops in Ketchikan, Wrangell, not to mention the layover in Seattle was something we'd like to avoid. With Kenai, we are told that it's direct flight from Los Angeles to Anchorage and then a 2 hour drive, which peaked our interest.
Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.
