The Alaska fun doesn’t stop in the summer.
Fishing for us does not stop at the river! As the river season begins to slow down in October that is when we are transitioning and picking it up in the saltwater! This “Off Season” is an excellent time to come and a way to save some money and enjoy less traffic on the water. This is easily one of our favorite times of year and often overlooked when people are booking trips to Alaska.
We start in Homer and head out into the icy blue waters of the Cook Inlet with experienced guides who know just the right fishing spots. Saltwater kings are magnificent and tasty fish that usually weigh between 15 and 30 pounds and fight like mad. Out on the saltwater, the limit for these kings range between one or two depending on what time of year you are here. Saltwater king salmon is a lot of fun to catch and you may even find yourself with a rare white king salmon on your line!
We fish this fishery all winter long, so even if it’s mid-February don’t hesitate to give us a call!! And don’t be scared of the weather, temperatures tend to be warmer out on the water. And it always feels like summertime in the cabin of Eric’s Boat!
Every year in late March Homer hosts the Winner King Salmon Tournament where anglers gather from all over the state to compete for thousands of dollars to see who can catch the largest Winter King Salmon. The 2017 winner took home $53,528.25 with a 25.65-pound white king! This is the only day we don’t guide winter kings as we take our family out to fish the tournament! Gotta pay for the girl’s college somehow 😉
