Halibut fishing is included in our
Halibut fishing is predicted to be one of the best seasons ever!
Alaska Halibut is One
our inland waters explode with an abundance of bait fish, which attracts
schools of Alaskan Halibut, ranging in size from 10 pounds to 400 pounds.
These Halibut rise from ocean depths of over 1000 feet to as little
as 50 feet of water in search of bait as they begin their frenzied feast.
Alaska Halibut are some of the finest athletes in the sea. With no body
fat and pure muscle, these rod-straining fish can exhaust you by their
brute strength as they fight you back to the bottom. We
invite you to try your luck, with the assistance of our highly
trained crew, in landing these robust monsters.
Alaskan Halibut have weighed over 400 pounds. The typical fish caught
on our fishing charters weigh between 20 and 80 pounds, with many fish
over 100 pounds brought in daily. On September 16, 2004, we broke our
Halibut record of 269 pounds with a whopping 348-pound lunker caught
on a 24-ounce jig.

Seward Alaska Fishing Trip
that you’ve invested a lot to make your Alaska fishing
trip possible and we work very diligently to have your dream come true.
From the most experienced angler to the fishing novice, we can provide
as much or as little gentle guidance as you’d like.
On your fishing charter out of Seward, you will travel 40 to 55 miles along the coastline to the fishing grounds. We have “near-coastal” fisheries, meaning that we are traveling up and down the coast to Seward’s most prolific Halibut fishing grounds.
We fish in depths of 50 to 425 feet, depending on where the Halibut are and sea conditions.
We never travel more than 3 to 10 miles offshore, so if the weather gets bad, we actually have inshore areas in protected waterways where we can fish.
Current fishing rules allow charter anglers in Southcentral Alaska to retain two Halibut per day, one of which can be of any size and the other no greater than 28 inches in length. There is also an annual limit of four Halibut. There was no retention of Halibut on Wednesdays in the 2016 fishing season. The rules for 2017 have yet to be finalized, pending the International Pacific Halibut Commission’s Annual Meeting in January.
To conserve the resource, we encourage you to keep only the amount of fish you can eat or share through the winter.
