The most popular bottomfish for our guests because of its size and flavor. Alaskan halibut
is a toothy flatfish resembling a flounder, but it grows much larger— halibut over 300
pounds have been caught locally. Halibut live more than 20 years and are usually
harvested in area sport fisheries at 15 to 100 pounds (40-50 pounds average).

Their preferred habitat is along fairly flat sand, rock, or mud bottoms near abrupt dropoffs
or rocky points of land. Peak fishing is in May thru September. Though normally caught on
or near the ocean floor at depths below 150 feet, halibut are sometimes caught at
shallower depths by anglers trolling or mooching for salmon.  Use caution when landing
and handling halibut—some anglers prefer to dispatch a large halibut with a hand-gun
before boating it. I  prefer my trusty gaff, or for those barndoors a shark hook attached to a
strong rope and float.

The huge numbers of Alaska's halibut fishery becomes perfectly evident onboard an
Alaska Halibut fishing charter. To most fishermen around the world a successful fishing trip
is measured by the number of bites, number of hookups, or number of fish that were
