Whether you have saved for years to go on the ultimate fishing adventure or you return to Alaska every year, you will want to spend your time and money wisely. Our focus at Big Halibut is giving our customers the best possible Alaska fishing trip for their money. Alaska fishing is incredible and very different from most other places in the world.
Success here is not about getting bites or even catching your limit, although you will. In most cases it’s not even about catching the biggest fish of your life. Small halibut are often bigger than any fish you’ve ever caught. Alaska halibut charters often use bait bigger than fish kept on charters in other parts of the country! Success for us is not even about multiple hook ups. At times, we will have every angler on the boat with a 20-pound fish on the line, and that will be a signal to us that it is time to move to a better spot to get to the bigger fish.
Our goal is to give you the best possible fishing experience of your life. Alaska’s waters are still full of big fish and we target them by going beyond where the bulk of the other charters are willing to go. To Big Halibut Charters, it is worth going the extra mile and spending the extra time to catch quality fish for our customers. We don’t wear you out reeling up small fish until you decide to keep a couple and go home. We go the distance, so you have the best chance possible of catching the bigger fish.
Big Halibut Fishing Alaska Style
One of the greatest things about Alaska fishing is the beauty that surrounds you while you are waiting for your next fish. Alaska’s snow-capped mountains and lush green hill sides are spectacular. You will be spending the day in Alaska’s unspoiled natural beauty. For most of the summer, whales and porpoise provide spectacular show. Many other marine mammals and sea birds will be seen everyday. One day, we had a seabird land on the boat and sit in our customer’s lap – see the photos –the wildlife is abundant and captivating.
We specialize in long range adventures catching many species. We catch many trophy Lingcod, Rockfish, and, of course, Salmon. We use different tackle and techniques for each species. We supply all the equipment and instructions to enable our customers to both hook up and land all types of trophy fish. Our knowledgeable captains and crew are both patient and courteous. They are happy to assist you, as needed, to ensure a great time. We do all the dirty work!
Our crews enjoy fishing with both the “Avid Fishermen” and “First Timers”. Fishing for each species is different, so we will take the time to explain how and make it easy for you. So don’t be afraid if you have never caught a fish before.
Try Pulling in this Big Halibut
One of our favorite fishing trips, is the Ling Cod fishing trip. Ling Cod are super aggressive eating machines. We have had big Ling Cod attack our lures with a 20-pound halibut still sticking out of its mouth, obviously not because it is hungry, but rather they can’t resist the urge to attack.
Other times you may reel up two or three of these “bad boys” at once. One on the hook and others biting onto your fish! Ling Cod fishing is both fast and furious, with many multiple hook ups. It’s a lot of work for the crews, but it is an absolute blast for our customers and that’s what is most important to us. The limit for Ling Cod is two per person with a minimum length of 35 inches. We catch many Ling Cod pushing the 80 pound mark. This is truly a trip you will never forget. Ling Cod season in Alaska opens July 1st.
We also catch some incredible Rock Fish, both Black Rock Fish and Yellow Eyes. Like all of Alaska’s cold water fish, they are very healthy, high in Omega 3s and great tasting.
