What You Can Expect: The halibut fishing out of Homer can really only be described as excellent. The daily bag limit is 2 halibut per person, per day, one of which must be 29 inches or UNDER in length. This regulation was put into effect by the Feds at the start of the 2014 season. It looks as though they are also going to impose more restrictions for the 2015 season, notably a 5 fish annual limit on Halibut, and fishing for Halibut on Thursdays will be closed starting the 2nd week in June. Therefore, the Falcon will be accepting bookings for Salmon, Grey Cod and or Rockfish on all closed Thursdays for the remainder of the season. Halibut fishing can be quite a workout. On a typical day aboard the 31 foot Bertram Yacht "Falcon" you will likely be using 2 lbs. of lead to get your bait down to the bottom. These fish live right on the ocean floor, and that’s where you need to be to catch fish. Using a jigging motion, and keeping the bait moving helps to attract the fish to your line. Herring is one of the preferred baits for halibut. Scampi jigs can be very effective at times, and sometimes we get lucky and catch an octopus, and that is also excellent bait for these giant flatfish. Most of the halibut fishing done on the "Falcon" is at anchor, and in less than 300 feet of water. Over the years, some of the best catches on the "Falcon" have come from the shallow waters of the kelp beds. These fish swim around in as little as 10 feet of water. Being at the right spot at the right time is the trick, and I will do my best to park the boat in that spot!
