We'll be fishing the Kenai for second-run silvers in Sept and would also like to book a halibut trip or two as well. We'll get there sometime between Sept. 5 and 8 and stay until the 16th or 17th. We were going to go to Seldovia for a couple of days but now I'm hearing halibut fishing tends to start slacking off there in mid-August. I fished Unalaska last year and REALLY liked the isolation and the huge numbers of fish (even though I never caught a big one... 69lb was the largest).
Anyway, would sure appreciate any advice on where halibut fishing is consistent in early and/or mid-September. We'd prefer to go somewhere other than Homer or Seward. Both are just way too "touristy" for me and too far of a boat ride to get to decent-sized fish. I've never caught a triple-digit fish so I'd like to go somewhere that gave me a decent shot at that... although somewhere that consistently hauls in 80-pounders in Sept. would be just fine as well. Thanks, Tom
