While the rest of Alaska is storing away their fishing gear and following the beckoning of winter’s call for hibernation, we here at Big Dan’s Fishing Charters have been staying warm by the “fire” of the winter king bite. October has been full of good times and fish-filled coolers. By the way, we do not expect that to change anytime soon. You will find our vessels on the water all winter long, connecting clients with Homer, Alaska’s visiting winter kings.

At the beginning of October, we participated in the Homer Elks Club Derby. After two exhilarating days, we tied for the highest average weight! It was a good time for all. Since then, we have had the privilege of taking out clients and putting them on fish. Of course, we have put halibut on board, even filled some crab pots, but the name of the game has been clients regularly limiting out on the winter kings. The bite is on in Kachemak Bay, and it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.

We hope to broaden the idea of winter fishing in Alaska from the image of fish houses on frozen lakes to that of world-class saltwater fishing in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The Game Changer is set up with heated cabins and all the amenities one would need to have a memorable day on the water during winter in Alaska. We also have a “fishy” crew who work diligently to get you on fish. As you saw above, they are pretty dang good at it.  Between the heated cabin and the “heat” of the winter king bite, winter’s cold seems to melt away.

So if you are interested in having a genuinely Alaskan experience and filling the cooler with some fresh fillets, don’t delay contact us at Big Dan’s Fishing Charters.
