Halibut Fishing Alaska

MULTI-SPECIES FISHING CHARTERS

Halibut/Salmon Combinations
Halibut/Salmon combination trips are great year round, due to the high number of feeder king salmon and the huge volume of salmon runs in the Cook Inlet. We have access to everything from the spawning Kenai and Anchor River king salmon as well as impressive silver and pink salmon runs right here in Kachemak bay.   These combination trips split the day between bottom fishing for halibut and trolling for salmon, giving you the best of both worlds. The silver salmon show up in large numbers in late July through September and pink salmon in July and August, with the spawning kings headed to the rivers in May and June and the feeder king salmon are in the area all year long.

MULTI - SPECIES FISHING TRIPS are for halibut/salmon/rock fish or halibut/ling cod/rock fish depending upon the time of year and the weather.

Halibut/Lingcod/Rockfish combination trips begin on July 1st, the first day of lingcod season.   Lingcod are ferocious and aggressive fish that generally live in rock formations deep in the sea, growing up to 80 pounds in their short lives.  (Fun fact: lingcod aren't actually a cod at all- they are a member of the greenling family.)   Lingcod are generally fished for using a jigging technique and tackle, and live in the same areas as rockfish and large halibut, so it's not uncommon to be surprised with your catch once it surfaces.  You will have the chance to catch rockfish of all kinds while jigging.  Lingcod are found in rock formations a great distance from the harbor in Homer, so expect a run time of 2-3 hours on the boat before you reach the fishing grounds.  Luckily, there is a lot to see on these trips-breaching humpback whales, feeding Orcas, sea lions, otters, puffins, and beautiful scenery-so you won't be bored.  The daily limit for lingcod is 2 per person, and the rockfish is 5 (only 1 of which can be a yelloweye rockfish.)

What should I fish for?
Lingcod season opens July 1st and is great through the end of our fishing season in September.  During this time, multispecies fishing trips will most likely focus on lingcod.  If the weather is bad and the waters are too rough to make it out to these lingcod fishing grounds, our captains will head to their best salmon fishing spots and make sure to give you the best day of multispecies fishing possible. Whether you’re an experienced fisherman of all species or wanting to try your hand at something new, a multispecies fishing trip may be the perfect fit for you.  Multispecies fishing trips are ONLY offered on full day charters.  For all of our fishing trips, you will need to purchase a fishing license, and bring your drinks, snacks, and meals for the day. You never know what the weather is going to do out on the ocean, so it’s best to be prepared with warm layered clothes and light rain gear.   Remember that in addition to an Alaska fishing license, you will also need to purchase a king salmon stamp for each day of multispecies fishing.  It’s heartbreaking to lose a king salmon during an amazing fight and even more so to have to release it because you don’t have a king salmon stamp which allows you to legally keep the fish.
