Gotta Fish Charters offers Halibut, Salmon, and Clam adventures in the Ninilchik area. Ninilchik is an easy drive from Anchorage, or you can fly into one of the local towns such as Sterling or Kenai and rent a car. Ninilchik sites between Soldotna and Homer and right along the shores of Cook Inlet. It provides fast and easy access to quality Halibut and Salmon fishing in Cook Inlet, Kachemak Bay and throughout the local area.

Fishing with Gotta Fish Charters

Gotta Fish Charters is closer to Anchorage than Homer is, and it offers many of the same benefits to fishermen who want to fish for big Trophy Halibut and King Salmon.

The crew here has a combined 35 years of experience chartering these local waters, and they know where the best fishing spots are. Expect six person boats that offer modern gear, equipment, and amenities.

You can choose between full Halibut fishing or combo trips that target both King Salmon and Halibut. One of the tricks to targeting big, Barn Door Halibut is to spend the day doing so. The shorter charter trips that are 4-hours or less are very successful for catching many small Halibut. The current regulations around the Homer area limits fishermen to two Halibut per day, and four for the year. It's easy to limit out on Halibut, not for big Halibut. Those fish like the deeper waters around the Shelf and you need to spend some time letting them come to you.

If you are looking for a professional charter with clean boats, and easy access to great fishing then the Gotta Fish Charters is a good option. They are about 30-45 minutes closer than Homer, and they are easy to find. Expect quality service from a professional crew.
