Anchor Point Halibut Fishing Charters
A large majority of our halibut and salmon charters begin in Anchor Point, Alaska. Our Anchor Point halibut fishing charters typically begin by meeting our guests at the beach and then launching off the beach towed by a tractor.
The advantage of a halibut fishing charter from Anchor Point is that it’s much closer to the Halibut fishing grounds. These are the exact same halibut grounds that the Homer halibut charters target but 10 to 15 miles closer. That means more fishing time and less boat ride for our fisherman.
In addition to great halibut fishing, we also experience great king salmon fishing. Starting in early May, we begin catching kings making their way back to spawn in the rivers along Cook Inlet. These ”spawners” are larger and more mature than the “feeder kings” we catch at other times of year and they’re typically larger too. In fact, from where we fish out of Anchor Point, we are only a few miles from the mouth of the world famous Kenai River and some of the kings we intercept are large Kenai kings.
King Salmon Fishing
Anchor Point halibut fishing charters are world class and can be very productive for both king salmon and halibut. The first run of king salmon starts around the last week of April and peaks around the 25th of May.
Our peak season for saltwater trolling for kings is usually May 10th to 25th. Halibut fishing remains good all summer.
These trips can be done either as a combo king salmon / halibut charter or just a king salmon or halibut charter alone. We always recommend our combo trips because they give you an opportunity to target both species!
