Halibut Fishing

Halibut fishing involves fishing the bottom of the sea!

Halibut fishing is easy.  Put the bait on the bottom and hang on to that pole because one never knows when that mighty HALIBUT will hook up.  No special technique to learn, one quickly develops their own personal fishing style.

Reeling up a halibut requires a bit more effort and that's when halibut fishing gets real exciting.  Not all halibut fight the same, some are lazy on the line and some are feisty.  Most halibut come up fighting with a bit of an attitude, especially those 100+ pounders!

The waters of Lower Cook Inlet and the Kachemack Bay produce one of the worlds most productive marine environments.  Wildlife abound here!  Whether in direct contact with it - Halibut on the line - or viewing sea otters, puffins, eagles, porpoises, and whales, it's an experience of a lifetime...the highlight to any trip to the Great Land!

Pacific Halibut are bottom dwellers and the largest of all flat fish. They spawn in the winter in deep waters and feed in the summer in shallower coastal waters.
