Halibut Fishing

Halibut fishing included in our
Combo/Multi-Species trip

Try your luck at bringing in a huge Alaska halibut.
Halibut fishing is predicted to be one of the best seasons ever!

The Alaska Halibut is One Serious Fish!

Every spring, 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.

Sport-caught 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.

Your Seward Alaska Fishing Trip

We recognize 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.Our experienced crew will help provide you with the Alaska halibut fishing trip of a lifetime

On your fishing charter out of Seward, you will travel forty to sixty miles from Seward’s small boat harbor to the most prolific Alaska halibut fishing grounds and fish in depths of 50 to 350 feet. The catch limit for halibut fishing is two per person per day. Even though there is no size minimum for sport-caught halibut fishing, we strongly recommend that you not keep halibut less than 32 inches in length (which is the length minimum for commercially-landed fish), so we can all do our part to maintain this precious resource. We encourage you to keep only the amount of fish you can reasonably eat or share through the winter.
