Saltwater Halibut Fishing Charter
Your Halibut Charter will launch in to Cook Inlet from Homer. Action is fast paced and limits are regular. (An important note: our area still has a 2 fish limit) unlike other areas of Alaska) A typical Halibut is in the 25-70 lb range, with a few much larger ones -100 to 300 lbs, and known as "barn doors" - can be caught occasionally. Pacific Cod, Rays (Skates), Ling Cod, Black Bass, Yelloweye and the occasional Salmon Shark may be in the mix as well. Fishing is great all season long and one or more of these trips is generally part of most people’s plans. Our "six pack boats" are safe and comfortable. Launch time may vary depending upon the tides that specific day.

Alaska Halibut Fishing Charters . . .
Combo Salmon and Halibut Fishing
The Kenai Peninsula lets you get the best of both worlds at once. A saltwater combo trip In Cook Inlet includes trolling for King Salmon (Chinook) near shore and then traveling further offshore (typically 12 miles) to fish for Halibut. There is lots of action and and nearly guarantees you getting some of the best sport and eating fish around. This trip is available late May, through mid-June. Launch time may vary depending upon the tides that specific day.
If you can find a better deal on the Kenai Peninsula show me where because it doesn't exist! My Dad and I spent the first week of July 2017 at Hooksetters and it was the trip of our lifetime that we will never forget! Getting questions answered thoughtfully before booking, before and during arrival was important to us. Hooksetters was the obvious choice for us. The cabins are cozy. Sharing fishing stories around the fire pit every night was a great way to unwind. And the food was terrific! Our first fishing trip was for halibut out of Homer - we got our limit and a salt king to boot. Second day we did the fly out and caught MANY sockeye, fed bald eagles, and watched bears literally 20 feet from our boat. Do the fly out! Third day I got a fresh 44lb king salmon out of a drift boat on the Kasilof River - a fish fight of a lifetime. We also spent a couple days on the Kenai River where we got a few kings, rainbow trout, and Dolly Varden. Yea the fishing was slower at times but very beautiful scenery and fun times with the King Salmon chant: Oh-oh, king salmon, king salmon, king salmon. Our trip to Alaska Hooksetters exceeded our expectations in every way. Hats off to Glenn, Karen, Carman, and the entire Russell Fishing crew for running a smooth and flexible first class operation. We will be back!

Ultimate Offshore Multi-species Fishing Trips
These trips are weather and tide-dependent, but the fishing is outstanding. Fishing is for giant Ling Cod, many other species of Rockfish and barn door Halibut. It’s a full day and a great chance for lots of action though—perfect for that die-hard fisherman or woman. The backdrop is great scenery, including 4 volcanoes, and opportunities to see whales, puffins, otters, and a host of other Alaska marine wildlife.
Digging for Razor Clams
On just a few days a year, when a very low tide occurs (minus 4 feet or lower), there is the chance to go dig razor clams, which is an adventure in itself. Most people go to a place called “Clam Gulch” about 30 miles from the Lodge. Alaska Hooksetters Lodge will loan you the special shovels for free and give advice for the do-it-yourself person. We will provide boots and advice on what clothes to take and wear, as you’ll be kneeling down in wet sand and digging a clam that is much faster than you’d think. It’s a free adventure. Learn more about clamming in Alaska.
New Clamming Trip
A new trip that we highly recommend is to take an inexpensive guided-trip across the Cook Inlet (leaving out of Ninilchik) to the West Side. This trip will beach the boat in a secluded bay where you can dig and keep an unlimited number of clams and see some great new country that few other people ever get to experience. The trip includes considerable bird-watching as well and gives a close-up view of Mt. Reboubt, an active volcano.
