Halibut + Salmon & sometimes...Rockfish

All halibut fishing trips are full day in length and they include all the fishing gear and bait you will need. We will be right beside you to help you to understand how to land these fish when the exciting moment arises! The average halibut caught is 20-30 lbs. The good news is that these "smaller" fish are much better eating than their large counterparts.

A flat fish with a mottled brown top side and a white bottom, Pacific Halibut can put up quite a fight. The big ones are very strong... if you hook a big one, you'll never forget the experience.

Halibut features firm, white flesh that can be frozen and kept for months before eating. We can help you arrange processing of your catch if you wish.

Fishing season: May 1st through September 15th. No halibut fishing on Wednesday. 

Halibut Bag limit:  2/day/person.  One any size and a second 28" or less in size.

Salmon

Seward, Alaska is famous for its silver, or coho, salmon fishing. The Seward Silver Salmon Derby takes place the second week in August and is the oldest (longest running) fishing derby in the state!

Silver salmon are pound-for-pound the hardest-fighting salmon; in the ocean, they are a beautiful silver color and they are considered by many to be the tastiest salmon species. Most of the silvers we catch weight between 7 and 12 lbs., but the occasional fish over 15 lbs. is caught.

Fishing season: These salmon appear in the Resurrection Bay area in mid June and stick around until early fall.

Bag limit: 3-6/day, per person, depending on statistical are fished for Silver Salmon.

Rockfish

Often caught while fishing for halibut, rockfish include several species such as Yellow eye, Quillback and Black rockfish. They put up a good fight for their size and are fun to catch on light tackle.

Seward is recognized as one of the best places to catch rockfish. This fish is delicious when prepared fresh, but not so good for freezing and storing.

Fishing season: May - September 15th

Bag limit: 3/day/person depending on species and statistical area
