Halibut Fishing Charters – Sitka, S.E. Alaska

Halibut offer exciting fishing action – it’s quite a thrill to feel a huge flattie try to pull the rod out of your hands! We use first class rods and reels for these big brutes but catch them on salmon tackle also. The halibut frequent the same areas as the salmon and its common to catch a limit of both on the same day!

How to Catch Halibut

When targeting Halibut, the preferred bait is herring, salmon heads and guts, octopus, cod and crab. One placed on the hook, you then throw the hook, line and sinker over the side of the boat and open up the fishing reel’s bail arm, allowing the sinker weight to fall down to the ocean floor. Once the sinker hits bottom, you close the bail and wait patiently! Every l30 seconds or so, you pull on the line to lift the sinker, and then and let it fall back down on the sea floor. Feeding Halibut are attracted by scent and the bounce of the sinker and bait will disperse both scent and vibrations out in all directions, helping to attract a big Halibut to the food source on the hook.

Halibut are bottom feeders, which is why you must drop the baited hook to the sea floor. They also inhabit deep waters at around 250 feet deep, preferring rocky locations with ledges and cavities to live in / on. We have years of experience at studying marine charts, and recording prime fishing waypoints on a GPS. This means our skippers have no trouble locating those ‘prime halibut locations. That’s why a professional local Sitka charter boat captain, with a GPS’ loaded with his favorite halibut spots, is your best bet for a successful halibut fishing experience.

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU!!!! The wives went with the husbands this time and are sooooo glad. The fishing was incredible, a lifetime experience. Asom and Brandon were so professional and did absolutely everything possible to make our fishing trip fun and unforgettable. We caught lots of fish and were "Salmon dancing" all over the boat. At times having all four lines busy. We went on to spend two weeks in Alaska, but nothing begins to compare with the two days spent fishing with you in Sitka. You have a extremely will run fishing service and I would highly recommend it. Thank you so very much

Shelley! I have been long overdue to write you to tell you what an AWESOME time we had fishing with your outfit! We had a wonderful time. I was very impressed with the entire operation from start to finish. You were very accommodating with our travels plans, were right there to pick us up, had a nice dinner ready, had a car available, put right on top of fish each day, had comfortable homey accommodations, processed all our fish, and dropped us off on our departure day. Your home is beautiful, the staff was so friendly and truly came across as though they enjoyed what they were doing and were happy to have us there. I will be telling all our crew members about your outfit. I hope we weren't too low key, in bed at 9pm every night...Plan on seeing us again!
