The O'Fish'ial Charters sits front and center for big Halibut fishing. They are located on the Spit in Homer, Alaska - World Capital of Halibut Fishing. They have been chartering Halibut fishing trips for more than 33 years. If you want the experience of Barn Door Halibut, then this is as good as it gets.

Fishing with O'Fish'ial Charters

O'Fish'ial Charters focuses on big Halibut, but they also offer quality Salmon fishing and trips that mix both Salmon and Halibut fishing. They also offer long range charters which take you way out into the deep where the big, big Halibut roam.

Guests of the charter have two options for fishing with O'Fish'ial Charters. They offer smaller boats which hold six fishers or large boats which hold up to 18 fishers. They offer a variety of packages which restrict the number of people fishing. One of their packages is the Trophy Halibut adventure which is a 10-12 hour trip with only ten fishers on board.

The local waters around Homer are rich with fish - Salmon, Halibut, big Ling Cod, and Bottom Fish. If a Trophy Halibut is on your bucket list, then talk to these guys about making that happen. They will tell you that these little short trips don't often pan out for big Halibut. Those are fine trips for Salmon and smaller Halibut. If you want a trophy, they know how to make that happen.

Homer Fishing Adventures

Homer sits along Kachemak Bay just across from Kachemak Bay State Park and from Halibut Cove. This is the Kenai Peninsula and a vantage point to capture fishing opportunities for both Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. This is why the fishing here is outstanding.

Halibut and Salmon have a love-hate relationship. Both feed on schooling bait fish, and the Halibut also prey on Salmon. It takes a lot of good food to grow a 400-pound Halibut, and the fact that these waters are full of them is astounding. That might make it seem like big Halibut are everywhere and easy to catch. They are, and they aren't. There is a lot of big Halibut here but to catch them you need an experienced charter. O'Fish'ial Charters is experienced, and that is why it is blooming difficult to get a seat on one of their boats. Their reputation is all about big Halibut, and they deliver.
