HOMER ALASKA HALIBUT FISHING
HALIBUT ECONOMICS: Halibut dress-out 50 percent and yield one-half of their live weight in boneless fillets. A twenty-five pound fish will yield boneless fillets with a fish-market value of $250. Plus, as an added FREE BONUS, you get a DAY OF FUN and the experience of catching your own fish which you don't get at the fish-market. What other recreational activity is there where you bring home a VALUE EQUAL TO the cost of participating? WHAT A DEAL!!!
"In Alaska the fish are so BIG we don't have to lie about their size!"
When you fish with us you can release the smaller fish and keep the largest fish you catch each day. We know where all the good fishing holes are.

MAKE RESERVATIONS EARLY
ADVANCE RESERVATIONS for charters are required, because when coming to Homer without making reservations in advance it is very OFTEN IMPOSSIBLE to find a walk-on vacancy. Most Fishing Reservations are taken from January thru May, but we book all year around. Earlier reservations have a wider choice of available dates. BOOK EARLY! Multiple-Day charter reservations are suggested because of variable weather and sea conditions. We do not go on STORMY days. Your DEPOSIT is REFUNDED if your trip is cancelled. Reservations are TENTATIVE until a 50 % deposit is received. GUARANTEED RESERVATIONS are CONFIRMED by mail. Deposits are 100% refundable with a 60-day CANCELLATION NOTICE or if we can re-sell the trip. Your RESERVATION DEPOSIT is INSURED by BOND to $50,000.

HALF DAY CHARTERS
Half-day halibut charters are NOT a half day of fishing. They are mostly a boat-ride out to and back from the fishing grounds with very little time for fishing. Half-day charter boats carry fifteen or more people, and are great for children. Mostly small 'chicken-sized' halibut are brought in on the the half-day charter boats because there is no time to release the small fish and keep the larger ones as is done on the full-day charter boats. A full-day fishing license is required for a half-day charter. There are no six-fishermen half-day charter boats. Our full-day, six-fisherman halibut charters are real fishing trips !
Our 'full-day' 6-pac boats with a 6:00 am departure is the preferred fishing charter. We welcome first-time and novice fishermen. You pay only for the seats you occupy. We fill the rest. .
As it is in general, the cheapest price IS NOT A GOOD criteria for selecting a charter.
The difference between lower priced charters and our price is they may add-on a fuel surcharge
to the price of their charter fare after you book your reservation.
We Guarantee our Charter Price to You at the Time of Your Booking!
We are a 28 year member of the Homer Chamber of Commerce,
We do not consider your charter fare spent the moment you step on the boat, but rather at the end of a good day of fishing. We do not keep a percentage of your charter deposit on weather cancelled days, but rather refund 100% of your deposit. Our goal is to provide you with the most pleasurable and memorable experience possible so you will want to return and fish with us again, and so you will recommend us to your friends. Word-of-mouth personal referrals have been our most effective advertising. Our business reputation over the years has been built on this premise. You will be glad you booked your charter with us because you are covered by our Exclusive Charter Warranty. ---- Capt. Bruce Warner
