Excursion Overview

Home to Southeast Alaska’s iconic halibut fishing opportunities

A revered pastime in Southeast Alaska...set out on your 34' vessel, The Kraken for a halibut fishing venture. Hoonah is the place to be for trying to catch these "barn door" size fish. The largest halibut on record was caught inside the Icy Strait waters.

All fishing gear, bait, and tackle will be provided for this excursion. On those particularly soggy Alaskan days, warm up in the comfortable cabin. Before your trip, participants will need to purchase a State of Alaska fishing license which you will need to print and have with you while fishing the Icy Strait waters.

The charter runs between 3.5 - 4 hours to optimize your time fishing. Enjoy learning from an experienced Captain who has a lifetime of anecdotes and knowledge to share. Hoonah is just a stones throw from Icy Strait where your fishing adventure awaits.

Send your catch of the day back home!

If you choose to have your catch shipped home, your catch can be delivered to the local processor who will fillet, vacuum seal, and freeze your catch, then ship via Fed Ex upon your arrival home. This is at an additional expense and the cost depends on the weight of the fish.

Our kids had such a great time on this fishing trip. Caught a lot of halibut and saw Orcas. Lucas took great care of them and they had the time of their lives. Highly recommend this tour by a local fisherman.

Lucas was amazing! He was so personable and did his best to provide a fantastic fishing experience. We saw a whale and he made sure that we got to watch it and followed it around for a bit. This trip was a highlight of our vacation and worth every penny, even though the waters were a bit rough and he couldn't get to his favorite fishing spot. We especially loved that he was as a local resident and that he wasn't just giving us a script of the area. We were able to learn about Alaska directly from an expert.
