Professional Halibut Fishing Charters in Homer Alaska since 1979

Halibut Fishing on the M/V Irish

Full Day Halibut Charters

Halibut fishing out of Homer offers some of the finest, consistent fishing Alaska has to offer. Our vast fishing ground in Lower Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay produces halibut of all sizes and it is an extremely rare day that anyone fishing does not get their limit of 2 halibut. We are always on the lookout for exciting action whether it is hooking into a big monster fish to catch, photo and release, trying to fill the freezer with the delectable white fish or just enjoying the most action available, you will have the time of your life. Halibut run deep, shallow, they like the rocks and flat sandy bottom. They can be anywhere, giving us endless opportunities to seek them out depending on weather, tides and scenic destinations. Typical fish run in the 15-40 lb range but we all have the photo’s to prove what can really be ready to bite your hook at any given time…so be prepared!

“Homer for the Halibut” as the old saying goes has been our mainstay since 1979, but let’s explore some of the other options that we offer out of Homer.

Departure time: 6:30 am and runs 8-10 hours

May 1 - June 2 and Aug 28 - Sept 24: $220 all Adults / $150 child 12 and under

Short Range Day Charter

If all day fishing doesn’t fit into your schedule, and you just want to experience Alaska fishing Short Range Day Trip may be just the ticket.  This can be a great opportunity to get your family out and enjoy a day of fun fishing on Kachemak Bay!

Our charters are professionally operated just like the full day charters we have been running for the past 30+ years.  The limit of halibut is still 2 fish per person and we are here to help you catch them with our experienced friendly crew.  We will provide you with all the equipment, bait, fish filleting (which will be done onboard and ready for you when you leave the boat).  Fish processing is available back at the dock so you can send your fresh catch of halibut home.

You are going to need to bring food for your trip, warm clothing and raingear.  Don’t forget your camera as the scenery is spectacular and the chances for marine wildlife viewing are excellent. Fishing licenses are available at the NorthCountry Charters office on the Homer Spit. 

Departure time: 7am and runs 5-7 hours
Rates: $190 Adult / $175 Senior 62 and over / $150 Child 12 and under
Season: May thru Sept
