My family and I managed to get down to the homer area this weekend and had a fairly good time. On sat sun we went out and messed around for abit for an hour or so within 4 or 5 miles of the spit and I caught my first halibut in our boat, a nice 38 lber, the 2nd biggest we saw even for charters down there this weekend. On monday we headed out early, took a nice flat ride to selodiva and walked around in the lazy beautiful town for awhile. After this, we picked up some bait and went back to butt fishin. We got 3 within an hour, I hooked another nice one at 30 lbs, and my step dad got a 15lber and a 20-25 lber. The halibut bite was fairly steady once we managed to find them but we left before limiting out because of time restrictions.
All in all we came back with 45-50 lbs of beautiful meat, and a few sunburns and coughs to accompany it.
P.S- Most people seemed to be getting chickens 10 lbs or under, saw 2 different charters pegging up pics of the few 7-10 lbers , overall we saw one nicer fish the entire weekend at 60 lbs and heard of another non confirmed 130 lber, great way to kick off the season.
Take care and good luck, I'll see if I can get some pics up within the week.
