If you like to fish for halibut via guided charter services in Alaska, then pay attention to the new regulations and schedule your fishing times around them.
If you come to Anchorage and fish anywhere nearby you are in the SOUTHCENTRAL REGION. From June 15th until June 30th you may keep only 1 halibut. All the rest of the season, the limit is 2.
If you come to Juneau and fish anywhere nearby you are in the SOUTHEAST REGION. From June 15 until the end of July you may keep only 1 halibut. All the rest of the season, the limit is 2.
This data is posted to help anglers in trip planning.
That makes July the HOT month for halibut in Seward, Homer, Whittier, the entire Kenai Peninsula, and Kodiak. If you don't reserve ahead, you'll never find a boat.
It DEVESTATES the Juneau, POW, Ketchikan, Sitka, Haines/Skagway, Yakutat, and Petersburg/Wrangell area with a 1 fish reduction by 45 days during the heart of the season.
This is tough news. I didn't make the rules. I only play and advise others as a result of them...
