I'm planning a return trip to Kodiak this year for either July or September. Last time we took a charter and caught halibut within 150 yards of the shore near Chiniak. This year, I'm planning to bring my 13' surf rod and try surf fishing for them. Has anyone had any success in Kodiak fishing from shore for halibut? Is there a better time of year when they come in closer to shore?
Any suggestions about good shore fishing locations along the road system? (looking for deeper water within a 80-100 yard casting distance)
