Halibut Regulations for 2018

Well, this year’s halibut regulations were finally finalized and published. Our limits this year, in all of Area 3A (Homer, Seward, Kodiak, and that general area) are: Two halibut per person per day. One of those fish may be of any size, but the additional one must be under 28 inches long. Wednesdays are closed to halibut fishing, and this year six Tuesdays will also be closed, July 10, 17, 31, and August 7 and 14. Lastly, there is a 4 halibut annual limit. So really the same as last year, with a couple of additional Tuesday closures.

What does this mean?

  • We’re going to have fun.
  • We’re going to do our best to give our guests plenty of opportunities to harvest four nice halibut during your stay with us.
  • There are a number of other species, like Wild Alaskan Salmon – all five species, but specifically Sockeye, King (Chinook), and Silver (Coho Salmon), various Rockfish, Lingcod, and Crab we’ll be also targeting.

No one likes change, but there you have it. We also have some pretty cool additions to our destination we’re excited to share with those of you joining us this summer. We will see you soon!
