Halibut fishing Homer, Alaska, with Big Dan’s means lots of arm-bending fun, great memories, big smiles, fish pictures and many meals to enjoy with friends and family when you bring home a box of Alaska halibut. We offer three types of trips for halibut anglers: half day, full day and overnight.
No matter what trip you pick, current regulations per angler are one halibut per day any size and one halibut per day under 28 inches. Charter boats are also not allowed to fish for halibut on Wednesdays.
A typical run on our day trips is 30- to 50 miles. Our goal is to find quality halibut on these trips and our captains are experts at both finding them and fishing for them. A typical halibut weighs about 20 pounds, but don’t be surprised if you catch one far larger. Our boats and gear are of the highest quality, so when you fish with us, you’ve got an advantage. We’re excited to show you the best ways to catch halibut, and our captains are skilled at teaching the correct fishing techniques.
When you jump on an overnight charter, we are able to make a longer run and reach seldom fished areas, which often results in the potential for larger fish. It’s not unusual to run 80- to 100 miles from the Homer harbor to catch barn door halibut. You’ll spend over 24 hours on the boat, and that will provide for some serious angling time. In addition to targeting halibut, anglers who choose an overnight option will also get to target lingcod, yelloweye rockfish, black rockfish and salmon. Halibut fishing Homer, Alaska style on overnight trips is really a multi-species affair where big halibut are the star.
Don’t worry about meals or a place to sleep on the boat; we’ve got all that covered on our epic overnight adventures. Bring a strong back, a desire to fish til you drop, and an eagerness to enjoy halibut fishing Homer, Alaska based with Big Dan’s.
In addition to providing options for saltwater fishing, we offer Kenai River trips and lodging on the Kenai River in Soldotna. It’s about a 75-mile drive between Soldotna and Homer, so many anglers who come fish with us, choose to stay at our lodge and drive down to Homer for their halibut charter.
