Our most popular of the Peninsula's saltwater fishing options. The small town of Ninilchik, Alaska, located about 45 minutes south of the Soldotna area, is the base for our Deep Creek halibut fishing charters. There isn't a marina, instead, the 28-32 foot 'six pack' boats are launched directly into the surf by tractors near the mouth of Deep Creek.

During certain timeframes / tides, we'll still meet in Ninilchik but we opt to launch the boats from Anchor Point a little further to the south. Launching here often puts us into the same fishing grounds as boats leaving from Homer to the south.

August Deep Creek Halibut

From the launches, the run to the halibut fishing grounds is usually well under an hour, considerably less than what you typically get departing from Homer. You will fish the cold, deep waters of Alaska's Cook Inlet in the shadow of the snow-capped, volcanic peaks of the Alaska Range.
The average weight of a sport-caught halibut is about 25 - 40 pounds, although 100 pound fish are relatively common. These 'barn door' halibut in the 100-300 pound range are a very real possibility ... and some are caught on any given day in this popular fishery.

The Deep Creek, Alaska fishery is also home to a popular saltwater salmon / halibut combination trip.

May Ninilchik, Alaska Combination Fishing

Depending upon the timing of your visit to Alaska, these trips spend a portion of the day fishing close to shore for a shot at the sometimes monstrous kings headed towards their natal streams to the north. We run our combination trips out of Deep Creek from the beginning of the season in early May through at least June 1, perhaps a little longer if the king fishing remains steady enough.

We also often spend some of our August fishing time fishing for silvers depending upon tides and where we head on a given day.

As with all our trips, you will fish with the very finest equipment aboard the most modern boats with state-of-the-art electronics. Your USCG licensed captain specializes on these waters (no river, saltwater flip-flopping) and utilizes some of the fisheries' most innovative techniques! More Deep Creek / Ninilchik halibut fishing

We also are one of the few operations that only run one trip daily on the salt. In nearly all instances, we run our trips on the high slack tides only. As a general rule, high tides fish better than lows. Without the 'need' to return to the dock for the next group / next tide, we're able to run whatever distance we need to to provide the best fishing and we can spend as much time as the tides allow to fish!
