Homer Halibut Hunters runs angling trips out of Homer, Alaska, and offers to show you the thrill of fishing in the "Halibut Fishing Capital of the World!"

Capt. Jim will do his best to ensure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning, all to get you on that bite. This involves 7 to 9-hour trips, mainly fishing for Halibut, Rockfish, and Salmon, depending on the type of trip and conditions on the day.

Are you looking for that trophy Halibut and to experience fishing in Alaska? This area is known for its breathtaking scenery and abundant marine life, and captain Jim can’t wait to show you a memorable day where you can also bring the whole family.

Your boat for the day will be a 30’ North River that fits up to 6 anglers at any one time. The boat comes with a toilet, and all the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. All that’s up to you is to use it as best and buy your fishing license ahead of time. You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip.

Capt. Jim runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done.

The ride to the fishing grounds will be anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes but can be as much as 2 hours if the water is good and we decide to "go big!" The trip out to the fishing grounds can be quite spectacular as you'll travel fairly close to the shoreline. You'll often see otters, whales, seals, and countless marine birds. Seasonal.

    Rockfish are such fun fish to catch and, when combined with Halibut, make a perfect complement for these combo fishing trips. They are found in plentiful numbers, make for fantastic table fare (who doesn't want rockfish tacos?), and there are more than 30 different species found in Alaska. So you never actually know what species you might reel up. Since these fish form schools, once we get into them, it's not uncommon for every angler on the boat to have one on simultaneously! Seasonal.
