Our fishing charters leave out of Homer, Alaska, Halibut Capital of the World! This area is known for BIG FISH! Ask Captain Dave about purchasing your Homer Halibut Derby ticket prior to your fishing trip. If you catch the big one, it could be worth thousands of dollars.
Looking to fish for salmon as well? We are a short walk from the Kenai River, which offers excellent bank fishing. We can also set you up with a licensed salmon guide on the Kenai River or the Kasilof River.
While fish are unpredictable, there are general "run times" for each species
May through August is the best time to catch halibut on the Kenai Peninsula. Halibut over 100 pounds are caught all through the summer season. Be sure to check with Captain Dave about the timing of your trip. Bag limits change during the summer season, so if taking home a cooler (or two) full of halibut is your main goal, we want to make sure you are here when you can maximize your catch.
King Salmon run May through July. The second run (July) is usually stronger and produces bigger fish. But keep in mind that the world record 97 pound King was caught on the Kenai in May.
Sockeye (Red) Salmon run through out the summer season. Bank fishing for Reds is popular, so be prepared to see several other fishers on the river.
Coho (Silver) Salmon begin their run in late July, and are abundant in the river through September. The later run (August and September) is also a great time of year to catch trout in the Kenai.
