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

If you are fishing in homer for the first time be prepared to fish in the rain. Even if you tell your kids pack for colder weather and rain, make sure they packed rain gear

Buy your license at Fred Meyer...very easy. If you catch a king salmon you will not be able to fish for the rest of the trip, but you can enjoy the boat ride.

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.

Fishing in June is great because we got there before the big tourist season and didn’t have to fight the croweds.

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 your fishing a bit earlier in the year than we did but don't be afraid of whenever you go. I would probably book more than one day if I were to do this again down the road. Be nice to go after some King Salmon.

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.

Jared is what you want to see in an Alaskan guide when he pulls up in his truck. He goes to a special effort to get you into the fish and spends extra time to make sure you learn the technique. Jared is the man and gets 6 stars out of five!!! I will look forward to going out with him again. Barney, Adam, and Kristina. Fish on!!!!

Great day of fishing. Corey put us on the fish quickly and kept us on them. Jake did a great job as mate and was so good with the two kids in our group. We all had a great time and would like to do it again in the future.

We had the best time. We were on the boat with a great group. My daughter, niece and myself have never been halibut or salmon fishing. Jeff and Ben were great and helped to explain everything and even waited for us as we were a few min late. I was getting frustrated when the salmon were not biting…. The captain took us to a great spot and the salmon were a great challenge to catch…… loved our time!!!!!

McKenzy did a great job helping everyone bait and cast their poles. Him and his partner worked hard at making sure everyone caught fish. It was a pretty big group but he handled it well. If if you’re looking to catch fish, we recommend using this guy!
