Before embarking on our Homer fishing trips, you must obtain the required Alaska Fishing License. In Alaska, a license is required to participate in sport, commercial, and personal use fishing; and sport fish guiding or hunting guiding. Licenses are available for residents, non-residents, members of the military, and residents who are Disabled Veterans or who are age 60 or older. Most licenses, as well as a king salmon stamp, can be purchased online or you can find them at local retailers. It also should be noted that based on the current regulations ADF&G, the daily halibut limit is one ANY size and one under 26″. Additionally, chartered boats are not allowed to fish halibut on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
