BIGGEST HOMER HALIBUT DERBY FISH IN 10 YEARS

When Jerald Davenport of Murray, Utah landed his lunker 332 pound halibut, little did he know that he had caught the largest fish ever to be entered in the ten year history of the Homer Jackpot Derby until it was officially weighed in.
Davenport's 332-pounder was caught when fishing on the sport-fishing charter vessel
Halibut Hunter with skipper Captain Bruce Warner.

If no larger fish is entered by Labor Day, Davenport's big fish will win the Homer Derby jackpot of approximately $30,000.

Davenport has been fishing with Capt. Warner for ten years and has landed several fish over 100 pounds, but this one hit "like a nuclear sub," he said.

Homer Jackpot Derby History

Over the past history of the Homer Jackpot Derby the average weight of the winning fish is 320.8 pounds. The weight range of the winners was from 262.0 to 376.0 pounds.

Don't Forget to buy a Derby Ticket!
$10 can Win $50,000

"Alaska is the last Great Fishing Destination in the U.S. and there is more than one reason why Homer is the Top Alaska Fishing Destination"

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.
It's the high cost of fuel that is driving up charter fares. Fuel is our biggest expense

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!
