Considerations

Tides

Alaskan tides are the 2nd largest and fastest in the World. There can be as much as 28 feet of water moving through the Kachemak Bay and the Cook Inlet waters in a 6-hour period. We have 2 complete sets of tides in a 24-hour period. We have 2 flood and 2 ebb tides. The transition time between the end of the flood and the start of the ebb tide is called the slack tide.

One thing to consider when planning a fishing trip in the saltwater is the amount of water moving on the day you’ve chosen. These minus tides can sometimes produce some of our biggest fish if fished right. The best thing to do is listen to your captain, he is out there every day and knows how to fish the big tides, the fish move more on the bigger tides you just have less fishing time so pay close attention to every thing he tells you. This makes for a great trip!

Processing Your Catch

After a successful day of fishing, we bring your fish back to the docks and fillet your fish (free of charge) Gratuities are appreciated. We will bag your fish and you can take it with you back to the lodge where it will processed by means of vacuum packing and freezing. When you are ready to head back to the States the fish will then be put in a airport approved box and you can put it on the airlines with you or you can choose to have it ship directly to your door steps on the day that you choose to have it shipped.

NoteA halibut fillets out at approximately 50% of its live weight and salmon at around 60% of its live weight.

The following is pricing from the company we highly recommend in Homer, Coal Point Seafood’s. We also use processing companies in Anchor point when we fish our clients out of there or you can bring your fish back to the lodging in Kenai unless you choose to stay in Homer or Seward while fishing for Halibut.
