Halibut and Salmon Fishing
Combination Halibut and Salmon Fishing Charters ("combo's") are a perfect way to enjoy a variety of fishing experiences in one day. In Homer Halibut Fishing is deep sea bottom fishing with heavy tackle, and king salmon fishing in Homer is trolling with light tackle and downriggers. In Homer Silver salmon is caught with light tackle rods and reels. If you are pressed for time, this charter is a perfect way to stimulate your appetite for the delicious tastes of fresh halibut, king salmon and/or silver salmon to take home.
As your captain is trying to find you the best halibut he can during half the day around one tide, and then switch over to king salmon fishing or silver salmon fishing for the other half of the day and tide, he is likely to stay within the circumference of the salmon area to find his halibut. We have many “secret spots” in our GPS for Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet and since the fish move around, so do we. The captain will pick which species to target first depending upon the tides and conditions. He will be very busy and will work hard to be productive within the time constraints. The only other option would be to spend a full day targeting halibut or a full day targeting king salmon or silver salmon. The choice is up to you as we offer an assortment of opportunities.
In a one day trip, your limit is 2 halibut per person and from 1-2 king salmon per person depending upon the area fished, as well as up to 3 silver salmon when in season. As you are fishing for king salmon there is a possibility of catching other incidental salmon. We recommend you purchase a king salmon stamp for these combination trips.
The halibut and Salmon charters are perfect for anglers of all ages and are available only on 6-pack boats where up to only 6 anglers can fish. We can combine you with other parties or bring your own group to charter the boat out for the day. This year we have 2 boats which are geared up to fish combos. Captain Cory on the 35’ Tuff Stuff and Captain Mike on the 37’ Kachemak King are your guys.
The cost of the halibut and salmon fishing combination is $300 per person plus tax. If we determine that the king salmon are not available when they are supposed to be, we don’t want to waste your time and we will refund you the $50 add-on for the king salmon portion and take you halibut fishing for the day. King salmon are the hardest to predict, but we have halibut throughout the summer. Come on out and if you choose a halibut and salmon fishing combination charter and have some luck, you’ll have a fun day with two totally different fishing experiences!
