Homer is the "Halibut Fishing Capital of the World!"
Bayes Boat Rental allows you the flexibility to pursue
these prized flatfish on your own terms and own schedule
WITHOUT being subjected to the restrictive size limits
imposed upon anglers fishing aboard Charter Boats.
Great to eat and easy to catch, rockfish are often a welcome alternative to
the heavier tackle and deeper waters associated with halibut fishing. It's
not uncommon for everyone on-board to be hooked-up at once when
targeting rockfish; making them an ideal target for young fishermen or
those new to fishing. Black bass are the most commonly caught rockfish, with
yellow eye, tiger rockfish, quillbacks, and dusky rockfish being frequently
caught as well. Many of our customers from Florida and the Gulf States
compare rockfish to grouper and snapper as table fare.
•King Salmon Year-round

Most anglers choose to troll for Kings using Downriggers. Popular King
destinations are The Bluffs and the waters near Seldovia. Kings can also be
found at various locations in the Bay depending upon baitfish patterns and
•Silver Salmon July 25th-Sept 1st
Plentiful and aggressive, silver fishing can be fast and furious. Double and
triple hookups are common-place when a school of silvers are found, and it
is not uncommon to catch a limit in an hour or two. Most will choose to troll
for silvers using Downriggers, but they can also be caught casting or mooching.
