That Time Lori Caught a 70-Pound Halibut in the Chugach Islands and I Made a Video About It

Lori was a super cool client I had on the Diamond Cape in the summer of 2021. I rarely have a chance to do videos like this, but I’m always happy when things come together.

The day Lori and her crew went out we had amazing weather and managed to make it down to the Chugach Islands in the Gulf of Alaska, a 50-plus-mile run from our port in Homer. It was sunny with a lazy roll coming in from the southeast, and the fishing was good.

While it’s one I like to remember, this is just another day charter fishing for halibut with Homer Ocean Charters out of Homer, Alaska. Sorry for the shameless self promotion, but if you want to test the waters you can book a fishing trip on our website.
