According to customer reviews, Red Door Charters - Ravyness (6), Red Door Charters – Debra Kay (6), and Alaskan Adventure Guides are some of the most popular fishing charters in Homer, Alaska. Full list of top fishing charters in Homer.

Red Door Charters - Ravyness (6), Red Door Charters – Debra Kay (6), and Alaskan Adventure Guides all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Homer.

The most popular fish species you can target are Halibut, Chinook Salmon, and Rockfish. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, jigging, and bottom fishing. Nearshore fishing, offshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Homer fishing charters can get you on unimaginable amounts of big, tasty fish. Spend a day battling monster King Salmon, “barn door” Halibut, or deep-water delicacies like Rockfish and Lingcod. What you catch is up to you, with a trip for every combination. Whatever you choose, you’ll end the day with enough fresh fillets to feed an army.

Choosing Your Charter

Charters work differently in Homer than in many places. For starters, half day trips aren’t really a thing here. On top of that, shared charters are more common than private ones, although you can book the whole boat at a discount if you’re in a group. Lastly, trips are categorized mainly by what they target. These are the main options.

Halibut Charters: The Local Speciality

Halibut are the most popular fish in Homer. This is the “Halibut Fishing Capital of the World” after all. Trips usually last eight or 10 hours. Standard full days target smaller fish in local waters. Extended charters go after the big “barn doors” farther away. Bear in mind that, by law, you can’t catch Halibut on Wednesdays, or on Tuesdays mid-July through mid-August.

Salmon Charters: Awesome Angling, Every Day

Homer is famous for its Flatfish, but you shouldn’t overlook the amazing Salmon fishing here. King and Silver Salmon hit trophy sizes in the waters very close to town. You can also catch every other Pacific Salmon species during their summer spawning runs. Salmon trips are great fun, and are a no-brainer on days when Halibut is closed for harvest.

Combo Trips: Fill the Boat

Can’t decide what to target? Why not catch ‘em all! Combo trips are the ultimate way to load up on fish. You can target Halibut and Salmon, Halibut and Rockfish, or all three. These charters generally last 10 hours, but you can also head out on overnight adventures to fish the most remote spots and reel in two days’ worth of fish.

What to Expect from Your Trip

Homer Charter Rates

An eight-hour Salmon or Halibut charter will cost you around $300–$350 per person. Combo trips are a little extra, especially if you’re targeting Rockfish. Even so, a 10-hour Halibut and Rockfish combo won’t usually be much more than $400 per person. Don’t forget, you can save a fair amount of money by booking the whole boat if you already have a group.

Getting Your Fish Home

Most visitors to Homer arrive by plane. This can make getting your catch home complicated. Luckily, there’s a simple solution: have it shipped straight to your door. Charter captains often arrange this for you after the trip. If not, they can point you to a nearby processing plant, where your fish will be vacuum sealed and packaged, ready for transit.
 
Homer fishing charters are designed to let everyone enjoy Alaska’s incredible angling and outstanding natural beauty. You can join as a group or on your own. Target one species or go after them all. Whatever you’re after, you’ll find an experienced captain and a sturdy boat waiting to take you out.

January

Halibut is closed for harvest in January, but the weather’s too rough to get to them anyway. Instead, why not try ice fishing on Caribou Lake for Dolly Varden, or take on Homer's famous Winter Kings?

February

Most charters don’t start until summer, but freshwater anglers can enjoy ice fishing for Salmon and Dolly Varden. If you’re the hardy type, head to the Spit for Halibut and other food fish.

March

The annual Winter Kings Salmon Tournament provides enough action to keep you warm, with over $150,000 in payouts and some monster catches of Chinook Salmon. Have you got what it takes?

April

Homer slowly emerges from its winter hibernation in April. Ocean anglers start to head out in search of Halibut, Rockfish, and King Salmon while freshwater fishers step off the ice and onto the river banks.

May

Salmon fishing really starts to get serious. Monster Chinooks roam the waters around Kenai Peninsula and the weather is calm enough to target them easily. The Halibut bite also picks up in May.

June

Homer's summer fishing season is in full swing, and boy, are you in for a treat. Monster Halibut and Rockfish are taking baits on the bottom. King Salmon are chasing lines in open water. It's a great time to visit.

July
Lingcod season is open, and anglers rush offshore to bag some delicious deep-water food fish. Halibut closes for harvest on Tuesdays from mid-July, as well as the year-wide Wednesday closure.
August

Chinook, Chum, Coho, Sockeye, and Pink Salmon are all swimming upriver. In the sea, Halibut are biting hard, although they're closed on Tuesdays for the first half of the month.

September

September is a great month to head offshore in search of huge food fish. Target monster Halibut before the season drops off, and pull up some Lingcod and Rockfish while you’re out there.

October

October is your last chance to get in on the area’s awesome Steelhead fishing. Head to the local rivers to enjoy this incredible species, alongside Salmon and anadromous Dolly Varden.

November

The local charter boats have shut up shop for the winter, but the rivers and lakes are ripe for some light tackle and fly fishing fun. Go bag yourself a Salmon - it’s much tastier than turkey!

December

December can be a hard time this far north, but Homer defies the dark with seasonal cheer and colorful lights. If the lakes have frozen over properly, you can head out in search of great ice fishing, too.

I was successful on my first time. Halibut are easier to catch than salmon. I met a few fishermen in Seward that were unsuccessful so I am glad I drove to Homer. For the nonfisher people in your party consider booking in advance a flight from Homer to Katnai to see the bears catch salmon. My wife was disappointed that all flights to Katnai were full.

Maybe. Check the tides. Call in advance and ask your guide what days have the best fishing tides and plan your trip around that

Good charters fill up early, but weather is unpredictable. Gear up for it. I'm a Scout so like to be prepared. Rain gear, waterproof boots, layers, sunscreen, gloves, Dramamine, barf bag. Plan for 10-15 degrees cooler on the water than the shore.

I recommend Corey with Alaskan Adventure Guides. He did his best to insure we got our limits of fish. He and his mate were great and the boat was very nice. Even with the 6 hour halibut trip, you may get a lot of movement. Be prepared, if you get seasick easy. Dramamine worked good for my wife. Expect the Spit area to be crowded, but there are a good number of places to eat. Expect to pay Homer taxes on your trip. Expect processing and shipping of fish to be about $7.50 a pound.

Book with Captain Corey on the Sea Hunter if you can. I’m sure there are other guides out there that are good, but I can not over emphasize how great our experience was on this boat.

Our fishing trip in Josh’s boat was everything we could have expected. Josh is easy to work with once the group all starts to interact and he is very knowledgeable and patient. He worked hard for all 6 of the charter to get their limit of halibut and king salmon and we even got some rockfish. Totally worth the money - make sure you tip him well when he takes care of you!

It would be an understatement to say that Captain Allen and Nate were terrific! We caught 4 kings with three being white kings, 3 silvers, 8 halibuts, and numerous pinks that were released. The boat was comfortable, well equipped, and everything worked well. Beautiful scenery and a most enjoyable experience!

Man, what an awesome day on the water with Captain Josh. We had a party of six on his boat and he handled it flawlessly. He got us to the fish, gave thorough instructions, and have pretty much convinced me that Homer is the city I want to move to in Alaska!!! Super knowledgeable and engaging, but here was nothing negative about this trip whatsoever. Thank you again Captain Josh and the amazing group I went out fishing with today. I will always come back to Big Butt Charters !!!! #armystrong

Really wanted to get Halibut —and boy did we —caught the limit within the first hour and 1/2!! 125 lbs of filets — The Kings were really slow but they never stopped working to hunt them down. Capt Allen was extremely knowledgeable and had us on the fish—Nate was on point and one of the hardest working gentlemen I’ve seen in a while —the entire Charter was enjoyable from beginning to end!

I have never been out on a charter where the captains Josh and Jordan were more conscientious about giving us what we came for. We limited out all three days. The comradeeie was fantastic, and they were very understanding of our shortcomings.

We had a VERY successful day fishing with Captain Allen and Nate. We really enjoyed our day. I reccomend messaging Bob and the office Staff any questions ahead of time. They are really good about getting back to you quickly. After such a fun day we can successfully say, even if we hadn't caught a thing it was worth every penny. The views, the wildlife, the boat, and the company made this a fantastic trip. We are already thinking about going again!

Captain & Mate were energetic and did not miss a beat. They were very informative from the start, provided expectations and kept us all aware throughout the trip. We were given all the instruction needed for catching fish. The mate made sure everyone had their turn at bringing in each species of fish.

I'm not sure you can have any more fun and be more exciting that our Halibut Fishing Trip. We caught our limit, as well as cod, a shark and Alaskan Skate. The team was wonderful, fun and made us all feel comfortable. We saw sea otters (alot) on the way back to the harbor. Highly recommend this trip and the Rummamuck crew.
