Halibut are plentiful in the marine waters of Alaska and are a favorite catch for those who love to fish. They are the largest of the flatfishes with females weighing in at upwards of 400 lbs. Male halibut are generally smaller than female, most weighing less, under 100 lbs. An average halibut catch weighs on average 15-20 lbs. Halibut generally swim on the bottom of the seafloor and can be caught at depths between 90-900 feet. They swim sideways in the water, and both of their eyes are found on one side of their body. The best time for catching halibut is generally thought to be between May and September and they are plentiful in the waters of Ketchikan. Anglers Adventures & Outfitters offer private, guided Ketchikan fishing charters. One of our most popular fishing trips are day trips for halibut.

A fishing trip can be ideal for a group of friends wanting to reconnect, or family members looking to share an adventure. In addition to catching halibut, a guided fishing trip is a great way to see the breathtaking landscape of Alaska. Halibut fishing is a big business in Alaska, with over 70,000,000 pounds caught annually. Even if you are a novice and have never fished before – you can be part of this Alaska tradition.
