Alaska Halibut Fishing Heats Up

Alaska Halibut fishing charter
The weather is heating up here in Southeast Alaska, and so is the Halibut fishing. Some of the favorite adventure opportunities here at Alaska’s Boardwalk Lodge are our saltwater fishing trips. Although freshwater adventures remain a favorite of many outdoorsman here, Alaska Halibut fishing shouldn’t be missed. Recent changes in regulation mean that not all fishing lodges and charter boats in Southeast Alaska are permitted to offer guided Halibut fishing. Boardwalk Lodge is one of the few sport lodges where you can enjoy the chance to catch one of these monsters.

The line is peeling off the reel so fast I just know the spool will overheat and fail. The second the fish hit, I knew that if I didn’t break it off, this freight train was going to be a wall-hanger.

Fish Who’ve Never Seen a Fisherman

Kenji King couldn’t see the river, nor could he hear it when he pulled his mid-’90s model Suburban onto a small pullout on the narrow, unmaintained, pothole-clogged dirt road. King had traveled an hour in the 4-wheel-drive vehicle now painted with mud and scratched by overgrown trees. He hadn’t seen another car, bike or person, only bald eagles and deer.

The Angling Report

By Robert Steele

I cannot say enough about the extraordinary friendliness of the staff there and especially the owners. Douglas and Donna Ibbetson. Boardwalk only takes 12 guests at a time [expanded to accommodate 19], so the service is very personal. My guide was friendly and helpful without being overbearing, and my wife was quite comfortable with everything and was treated extremely well.
