On the way out to the fishing grounds, sometimes fifty miles away, keep watch for whales, sea otters, puffins and various other sea life that abounds in Cook Inlet. When you reach the fishing area you will be given proper instructions on how to use the tackle, and land a halibut. It is not uncommon to catch ten halibut per person on an average day. The size of the halibut vary greatly day to day, but the average size is twenty five to thirty pounds. Large halibut, one hundred pounds or more are also caught quite frequently, one every other day on average. Multiple species of fish are also caught while halibut fishing, Ling cod, Yelloweye rockfish, Black rockfish, Pacific cod, and occasionally a salmon. The typical charter lasts eight to twelve hours depending on the cooperation of the halibut!

The return trip to Kodiak allows you one last chance to watch for sea life and to gaze at the towering Mountains, although most people are sleeping within minutes of leaving the fishing grounds. At the end of the day the halibut will be hung up for photographs. Filleting of the halibut is free and local processors are available to vacuum seal it so it lasts well into winter. Shipping is handled via Fed Ex, unless you have extra baggage space available. Alaska Premier Sportfishing works hard to provide you with the best quality halibut fishing gear, equipment and service that is possible to make your fishing trip a success. Please call if we can assist you any further with reservations or questions that you might have.
