    Default Homer Halibut Reports?

    Does anybody have any halibut reports from the flat island area? We have been fishing compass rose and the sand flats mostly this summer. We are finding pretty good holes of fish, they are just all little ones. I was hoping some slightly larger fish (30-45 lbs range) have been moving into the flat island / pogi point fishing spots.

    Thanks for any info, it will save us some run time and some fuel costs.

    You might go off of Flat about 10 miles or so. The big key to nice fish is patience. If you wait long enough sometimes they will come up the current to your baits if you get out enough scent. It has worked numerous times for me.

    If you go down by Elizabeth or any of those islands, and you choose to anchor, be careful. The fishing may be awesome, but alot of that is becuase of structure, and when I say structure, I mean ROCKS. Alot of rocks. We already lost one anchor there earlier this year. It quickly taught the importance of picking good tides to fish.

    Will the halibut be in the same general spots this weekend as they were in mid-July? We fished 2 good holes close to Homer in July and was wondering if the fish are still close to town (+/- 10 miles) or have they started moving out.

    You'll be fine it's still early. I don't think they will have moved much, if any.
