I have asked this question before on this forum and have got mostly "it's a bad idea" responses.
Has anyone taken a boat from Anchorage to Homer/Deep creek area? I have been launching my jet boat in Anchorage the past few days, and will tonight at high tide, working on getting it running smoothly. If anyone has, how long does it take? What about the shipping channels?
It looks like a straight shot from here and a person goes a lot further going halibut fishing out of Seward it appears to me. I know the water can get bad and stuff though, but it also does the same in Whittier and Seward, whatever. It seems if you watched the weather you should be fine on a nice day with a good forecast.
The reason I'm asking again is because I'm seeing lots of halibut carcasses at the boat launch in Anchorage, making me think someone else is doing it.
