Alaska Halibut fresh huge from Anchor Point
Voted # 1 Alaska Fishing Lodge

We are proud of our rating for the Kenai Peninsula. Keep in mind we are Alaskans and can give you good advice. Captain Aaron Mahoney is third generation on the water. He launches out of Anchor Point just off the Sterling Highway going South of Crooked Creek Retreat. We launch out of Anchor Point to save traveling time on the water. Charters that launch out of Deep Creek/Ninilchik and out of Homer fish the same waters. If you launch Deep Creek you spend another 1/2 hour bouncing around to get to the big fish. Homer charters are longer to get to the good spots and are often the party boats with 8-20 passengers or they are the quick turn around guaranteeing Halibut and come back with 10 pounders or if you don't catch they will toss you a lb of frozen Halibut. We fish a six pack with the goal of giving you a great trip and bringing back good fish. We are known for the catches we deliver.

The other captains look to Captain Mahoney when the seas are rough and rely on his judgment. If the seas are too rough we will get you out another day, we do not take chances. He is one of the few Captains that do Long Range Multi Species trips. These trips require a more specialized license and certifications not to mention know how and experience. Captain Mahoney also Charters to Kodiak for Bear Hunting and Black Tail. He is a Captain you can depend on to put you on the fish and bring you back.

Any angler who has heard about the "barn door" sized halibut of Alaska's pristine waters has more than likely had one or two fantasies of catching one of these great monsters. The anticipation of the big one is a lure of its own. If you have ever hooked into a big one, you know it takes a bit of skill and a lot of perseverance to close the deal.

If you have not had the opportunity to navigate the North Gulf Coast waterways for over 30 years to gain the experience you need to catch your own, you need a guide with the right skills and experience. Our charter captains are life-long Alaskans with a proven track record for success through the highest catch ratio and a flawless safety record. Count on us to help you determine the best way to fulfill your Alaskan Halibut adventures.

Captain Aaron Mahoney suggests you also consider:

Multiple Species

Gulf of Alaska Multi Species trip Halibut, Ling Cod, Rock fish and Yellow Eye

Halibut is always a favorite and our experience shows in our catches. Known for its predatory nature, fight and flavor, the Ling Cod is a great target for those wanting a bit more than the standard charter. Yellow-eyed Rock Fish are another colorful favorite, and who knows, you might even catch an octopus.
Prepare for a total full out fishing trip.  You will travei south down towards the Barrn Islands for a full day of fishing for all bottom fish and Salmon.   Ling Cod season normally opens July 1st each year, so we are suggesting those Multi Species trips for Early July or August.

Salmon/Halibut Combo

Another popular combination is the Salmon/Halibut charters available when the mighty King Salmon and the acrobatic Silver Salmon are fighting their way into the rivers to make their incredible journey upstream to spawn. Catching salmon before they reach the fresh water delivers a bright silver appearance and the firm, fresh meat that is so sought after for the dinner table.
