    Try going off the end of the Spit in Homer. I just read an article on this (I think it was in the June issue of Fish Alaska magazine - check their website) and they had lots of success with flouder off the Spit, and finally hooked into a decent size halibut. Be ready for a wild ride, though!

    Default Deep Creek...

    Try the area down the beach straight off the "antenna tower" about a mile out. (ask around if confused about that) Look for the pockets of boats out there. If the water is calm with mild tide you are in for a great time. Lots of 'buts.

    One of the biggest halibut I can recall being caught in recent years was over 400 lbs, and I think it was caught in about 30 ft of water off Deep Creek or thereabouts (if memory serves- and it rarely does).

    In other words, you might be thinking 30#... you might add another zero. Especially if you're fishing later after the salmon carcasses are washing out to sea from the rivers.

    Good Fun! Bring your GPS and a satphone to arrange for pickup!
