Halibut Fishing from the Beach

A popular activity for our Lodging guests is fishing for halibut on a custom fishing charter. Bear Paw Adventure books these charters. Clients fish on a first-class boat with an experienced skipper. All the gear is provided, and the crew will get you on the fish and then handle the big flat fish for you after you get it to the boat. This is a great way to experience halibut fishing in Alaska. The custom trips are 6-pack charters, meaning there will be no more than six clients on the trip.

But there is another way to fish halibut, that you might enjoy in addition to a custom charter or perhaps instead of. Although more abundantly found in the deep water far from shore, halibut can also be caught right off the beach. How do you do that you ask?

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, will be hosting an online fishing forum titled, “Beach Fishing for Halibut on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula” on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game YouTube channel.

The presentation will be available on YouTube on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at 7:00 p.m (Alaska time), and will continue to be available on YouTube after that. Don’t miss it!
