    Default Homer Halibut and Kings

    I am heading down to Homer this weekend and wanted to hear how the fishing is within 25 miles from the spit?
    My dad is up visiting and I took him for a great boat ride out of Whittier yesterday, but the fishing was pretty weak. So I am hoping the fishing is good out of Homer.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Halibut and kings can be caught just offshore...run towards Anchor River and troll near bottom for kings and fish 2 hours each side of the tide for halibut.

    I have heard people are getting limits of halibut, so I'm assuming that the fishing is pretty good.

    Got our limit of 8 Halibut on Monday, but I wouldn't say it was easy. The last fish was about 45# the others were 15-20#ers

    Default how far out?

    Can you give me an approximate area that you were catching them?
    I am looking at trying around Seldovia the first day, then head up towards Anchor Point the second day.

    Thanks,

    Just 1/2 to 1 mile in 30'-90' of water. The fish are there...but do anchor with a buoy 'cause a big one in shallow water can empty a reel fast!

    Try around the Point, maybe the compass rose...
