DeepStrike Sportfishing will generally focus on targeting large halibut for the majority of the day, then—if needed—keep smaller fish to round out the limit during the last hour or two of fishing.
DeepStrike is well known for our “secret spots,” bringing in some of Homer’s most impressive catches in recent years.
However, the average sport halibut caught by Homer’s fleet is around 12 pounds, and some “big fish” trips result only in average catches. As a sportsman knows that’s the gamble of fishing.
DeepStrike Sportfishing’s success is a result of word-of-mouth advertising and return customers. Not every return customer has caught a giant fish, but they do appreciate the effort and time put into trying.
Some catch the fish of a lifetime on their first trip out, some fish for years and never do. It’s the feeling that the next bait you drop could end up in the mouth of a 300 pound monster that keeps a fisherman coming back.
What else does a Homer halibut fishing charter experience entail? Visit our Trip Checklist to prepare for your trip.
Each year the NOAA announces halibut charter limits by March 31st. This limit varies with the abundance of fish.
