Halibut fishing Alaska is one of the top draws that bring folks from everywhere to the 49th state. The tasty, white flesh of wild caught halibut from Alaska’s cold waters is some of the most coveted gamefish targeted in all of the Pacific Ocean. Not only delicious to eat, halibut are fascinating to catch while you wait to see what feels like a tank breaking the water’s surface.
At Kodiak Legends Lodge we are grateful for a couple of area features that make halibut fishing Alaska a little easier. For starters we fish on average between 180- and 240 feet of water while in some places it’s more common to fish in up to 400 feet of water when halibut fishing. There are definitely times we have to fish deeper, but there are other times, usually in the spring, where we have areas that nice halibut can be taken in only 60 feet of water!
