The Cook Inlet boasts Alaska’s fishing at it’s finest! I’d challenge an angler to call us and tell us where they’d caught more variety, bigger specie fish in the same outing (so I can visit and do the same!). Homer is known as "the halibut capital of the world" but the fact is we have multiple species of Salmon in our fresh and salt waters all year long! The key to the freshest tasting Salmon is to catch them in the salt water before their run begins where their marbled fat content and their 'wild caught' taste are complemented by perfect coloring. The most notorious and sought out King Salmon spend their youth voraciously feeding in our Bays to fatten up for future river spawning.
Local Halibut/Salmon Combo

This year we’ve caught a some trophy Ivory Salmon that are amazing in flavor. Collecting both your limit of Halibut and Salmon on our Charters ensures you go home a trophy angler and it is the goal we set for each and every launch!
2017 Halibut regulations is two fish per day made up of one fish of any size (this is your big halibut) the second needs to be 28" or under. This is a smaller fish but keep in mind most of Alaska is only one halibut per day so this is a bonus fish. Our main focus will be to make sure your fish of any size counts! Additionally there is a four halibut per season limit. For the anglers that want to fish multiple days we recommend foucusing on one large halibut per day and letting the second smaller fish grow up for a later visit. Finally, Wednesday's will be closed for all halibut fishing.
Season max between June 15th to August 31st is 5 total. May, early June and September anglers can enjoy the same limits daily but avoid the 5 maximum restriction. Anglers enjoy the fast fishing and tug on the line when the Halibut start biting! When you fish with us for multiple days we help plan your excursion to focus on one large Halibut each day to maximize your 5 Halibut annual limit with larger fish.
King Salmon limit: 1-2 per day depending on the zone we are fishing. Peak season for these larger spawning salmon runs from May through the middle of July.
King Salmon season max between April to September is 5 per season. No annual limit October through the end of March. Homer's Annual Winter King Derby held this year on March 21st concludes the winter "feeder" king season.
Silver Salmon limit: 3 per day with no season limit but their season is much shorter. We do get some overlap with King Salmon. Silver Salmon enter the Bay to begin their run in the middle of July continuing to the middle of September. Although their flavor is more mild than king salmon their fight will have you thinking that this fish is anything but mild.
Daily King Salmon Limits:
1-2 per day depending on the zone we are fishing in.
King Salmon (Chinook):
April through September: 5 per season.
Peak season for these larger spawning salmon runs from May through the middle of July. However we catch Kings all year long. There is no annual limit October through March. Homer's Annual Winter King Derby held in the last weekend of March.
Daily Silver Salmon (Coho):
No seasonal limit, but there is a daily limit of 3. Silver salmon are more mild than King Salmon, but their filled with fight and a blast to catch. Therer is some overlap with Silvers and Kings. The Silver Salmon begin their run in Late July and continue through August
Daily Max Salmon:
6 total salmon per day with no more then 2 being King Salmon and no more then 3 being Silver Salmon.
