Most visitors come to the Kenai Peninsula for the world-class trout and
salmon fishing that our local rivers offer, but this area also provides
fantastic salt-water fishing. Many species are available but the most
popular by far is the Pacific Halibut. A charter for halibut is completely
different from our river trips, but in a similar fashion, it provides
great adventure, superb scenery, and plenty of action! And if you want to
bring fish home, this is the trip for you! Cook Inlet has such an
abundance of halibut that two fish limits are the norm. Frankly put, there
is not a better eating fish or higher success rate charter available.
You can fish halibut as many days as you wish, but most visitors opt to
fish the salt water just once during their vacation here…usually that’s
plenty to fill their freezer! We like to plan this charter around your
other fishing trips, according to the tides. We consider your open dates,
as well as our skipper’s availability, but we always consult the tide book
to find tides that will provide the best fishing! Just like salmon
fishing, your odds go up during specific peak windows, and that’s when we
want you on the water! Checking tides can make a huge difference, as does
the fact that our veteran captains specialize in saltwater fishing and are
on the water constantly, staying in touch with the ever-changing
Expect true big-game fishing, where your strength and stamina will be put
to the test. We fish deep water and use heavy tackle, because these fish
can get huge! In fact, some of our halibut actually exceed several hundred
pounds, and 75 plus pound fish are fairly common. Regardless of the size,
you will earn your fish, as even wrestling with an average Cook Inlet
halibut (15-50 lbs.) has been known to wear out the hardiest angler.
Custom built 28-31 foot aluminum boats with twin four stroke outboards,
comfortable cabins and small (but private) heads provide the speed and
safety to not only get you out to the big water, but to do so in comfort.
Spacious back-decks serve as large fishing platforms that allow plenty of
room for up to six anglers. Once the anchor is set, our knowledgeable
skipper and his hustling deckhand are there to help you any way possible,
ensuring a fun, successful and memorable trip!
