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.

This is the third time we have fished with S.E.Alaska Outdoor Adventures and it will not be our last! Every time we are there we catch our limit of fish without question, we get more and more acquainted with Mike, Shelley, Assam, Paul, Bob and the rest of the FAMILY (literally) and feel more a part of the Family each time we arrive. The fishing is undoubtedly the best we ever have and we go every year on our annual trip. We fish hard and relax just as hard. No pressure from anyone about anything. This is the place that you and your group need to go to experience what Alaska fishing and Hospitality is all about. 100+ pounds of fresh frozen filets each and friendships that we hope will last our lifetime are what these trips are all about. You really have to experience this adventure at least once. Thanks EVERYONE for a most wonderful experience and for all of the memories. The fish ain't too shabby either.

Hi Mike and Shelly, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the fishing experience with S.E. Alaska Outdoor Adventures. The accomodations, Captains and crew were outstanding. Our fishing experiences were at the top of the list. It was especially nice to fish with and talk to the other guys that Al has been bringing up there. I knew Al, Howard, Dee, and Rich from working with them at our Division in Auburn. A great and fun bunch of guys ! I took over 250 photos and will add Perry's to a disc when I get his. Will send it to Al who will collect others and send you DVD,s so you can give the Captains and Crew copies of all the guys and of Mike's party. I already smoked 8 fillets and vacuum packed them for my son and friends. Here are some more halibut recipes that you may want to try (you have probably tried them all ). http://www.kasilofseafoods.com/halibut-recipes.htm Arlen Paranto 210 Orchard Ave. So P.O.
