Available most of the summer. It is a fishery that takes about two hours to get to the grounds. On a yearly basis, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game tells us the size that we can keep. You may keep one fish either below 40” or above 80” at the present time. Cruise ship passengers would need at least 8 hours in port to fish for Halibut.
You can access the regulations for Halibut fishing through the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
