The fishing grounds are at the mouth of Yakutat Bay. The mouth of the bay is about 17 miles wide. We fish close to home. That means more fishing time for you. We fish where the fish are, and are willing to go the extra mile for you. Millennia ago the face of the Hubbard Glacier rested at the mouth of Yakutat Bay, pushing up a moraine. The result was a World Class Trophy fishing reef. It can be a lot of fun catching huge halibut in very productive holes less than 100 feet deep and so clear you can almost see the bottom.CALL FOR AVAILABILITY

Primarily we target Halibut, probably because there are a lot of BIG ones here! We have a fish weight average that is about 3 times the state’s average. We fish from 30 feet to 300 feet for the barn doors you are after. A lot of it will be in 100 feet or less. While hunting halibut, we’ll catch Ling Cod, and a variety of Rockfish; to give you a true taste of Alaska.BOOK A CHARTER
The Yakutat area offers some of the very best halibut fishing in Alaska. Halibut are typically targeted in depths of under 100 feet, making for a more enjoyable day on the water for anglers. This area also boasts the highest average weight per fish in the state.

We have a 28’ welded aluminum boat powered by twin 250 horsepower Yamaha four stroke outboards. We christened her the “F/V Aero Fish.” Aero Fish has a 9’6” beam, which means there is plenty of room for 6 people to comfortably fish. The combination of boat and those motors really scoots across the water ensuring we’re not wasting a lot of time getting there. She is very comfortable and stable; we don’t bounce around or get slammed by waves. We will supply you with top of the line fishing equipment. We have landed many Halibut over 100# on our “Salmon Rods”, yet they are light enough to make Silver Salmon fishing a blast! We chose Scotty downriggers to get the baits to the fish’s level when we are on the hunt for any of the 5 salmon species Alaska has to offer. Trolling with downriggers is a super effective way to target big salmon and fill the fish box quickly. They make fighting the fish a lot more fun, without needing to fight the weight of a sinker.
