It’s one of those iconic moments few people forget when you come over the top of Baycrest and the grandeur of Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit come into view.
The first halibut on my charter boat the Diamond Cape this summer was a 64-pounder caught by Liz from West Virginia on May 6, 2023. It put up a good fight. She chased it around the back of the boat for a good 20 minutes before it came to the surface, saw the boat, and took a dive back to the bottom. After another long fight, the beast finally hit the back deck on a cool spring morning in Lower Cook Inlet.
Early season halibut fishing is off to a good start this year in Homer, Alaska. If you’re looking to book a trip, there are still seats available in May with Homer Ocean Charters.
Wishful thinking. Homer, Alaska. March 23, 2023.
