You are allowed 2 halibut per person per day.
Halibut fishing is a major draw to Seward Alaska because some of the largest halibut in the world are caught in Seward, Alaska. Our Halibut range form 20-400lbs.
Halibut are the largest fish in the Gulf of Alaska, just outside of Resurrection Bay located in Seward, Alaska. They can grow to more than 8 ft long and 700 lbs. Halibut weighing in at more than 100 pounds are often called "Barn Doors" or “Hogs”, while smaller halibut, less than 20 pounds, are often called "Chickens". The largest Halibut ever caught while sport fishing was 459 lbs. in Unalaska Bay, close to Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Dutch Harbor is where your skipper Randy Wells, learned to chase the great Halibut of Alaska.
Halibut fishing out of Seward, Alaska is work however it is painless compared to fishing out of Homer, Alaska. The Gulf of Alaska does not have the huge “rip tides” that Homer and Deep Creek have. Out of Seward we will be Halibut fishing in waters from 80-200ft deep and we will be using only 1-3 lb lead sinkers, whereas out of Homer or Deep Creek you will be using 3-6 lb sinkers and fighting the “rip tide” plus the Halibut. Moreover, out of Seward Alaska will give you the fish you want and fill your camera with wonderful
pictures of the surrounding Kenai Fjords.
Seward Alaska Lingcod
Lingcod, what a catch this fish will
scare you. It is common to be fighting a rock
fish and have a 50lb Lingcod bite and fight!!
From July 1st you are allowed 1 Lingcod per
person per day.
The Seward Fish
Company takes great pride in catching
these huge mean fish. On our boat we use
a light weight rod, similer to a Salmon
rod. These light rod's with a big
Lingcod is what fishing is all about.
Lingcod fishing is one of Seward Fish
Company's favorite fish to chase, please
join us for this big fish fight!
When feeding, lingcod
attack their prey and especially enjoy
chasing anything that flees from their
rows of sharp teeth. In the underwater
world of lingcod, it is an "eat or
be eaten" world. Lingcod will even
eat their younger, smaller brothers,
sisters or cousins.
Anyone who's fished
for lingcod will experience a
"hitch hiker". This
happens when an angler hooks a fish and
then a lingcod grabs it and hangs on,
all the way to the boat. Once at the
boat, remember to leave the lingcod
underwater and do not lift their head
out of the water before gaffing them. If
you raise their head out of the water
they will release their prey.
Seward Alaska Rockfish & Yellow Eye
One of the oldest and most
colorful fish in Alaskan waters. Yellow Eye are abundant
In Seward. You are allowed one Yellow Eye
per person per day. If you keep a Yellow Eye
it will go against your Rock Fish Limit of 5.There
are more than 30 species of
rockfish that inhabit the Gulf
Eye, Quillback, and Black
rockfish have been aged at 40
years old. Most pelagic
rockfish from Seward, Alaska’s
Gulf of Alaska, caught by sport
gear are 10 to 20 years old;
however, most non-pelagic
rockfish such as yellow eye and
quillbacks are 12 to 60 years
old. Rockfish do not start
reproducing until they are at
least 10 to 20 years old, and
therefore are extremely
susceptible to over-harvest
Almost all the Rockfish that we catch
are from the Gulf of Alaska located
outside of Resurrection Bay in Seward,
Alaska. These rockfish are mostly
all larger/mature fish. Most of
the spots that contain rockfish will
have big schools (lots of numbers of
rockfish) of all mixed species of
problem associated with fishing for
rockfish in the Gulf is that when you
start catching them, everyone on the
boat usually limits out quickly.
Please watch our video on Rock Fish and
Lingcod, this will blow your imagination
“out of the water”.
Some charter boats
will tell you that “Rock Fish” are
not good to eat. The Seward Fish Company
and our customers will tell you that
they are” GREAT TO EAT”!!!
Seward offers King, Pink and Silver Salmon.
The Silver Salmon is by far the biggest Salmon attraction.
In Seward. Each year hundreds of thousands
arrive in July and August, what a full day these
fish are. You are allowed 3-6 Silver Salmon
depending on where you fish and your other
catch for the day. Your captain will explain
this to you.
Silver salmon (also
known as Coho salmon) are a crazy
aggressive salmon in the ocean. The
Seward Fish Company chases silver’s
from June-August, and we use a verity of
techniques, including: mooching,
jigging, trolling, and fly
Regardless of the
technique you use, you can expect
massive action and frequent limits.
Fish Seward Alaska, Inc. has had many
days with full limits of Silvers. This
is so much fun for the fast-action
Fishing for silver
salmon in and around Resurrection Bay is
one of the most popular trips we offer.
When the fish are in the Silver Salmon
fishing can be fast and furious -- and
with a limit of six fish per day you
could easily fill your freezer in a
single trip. These fish are typically
found in medium to large schools so when
the bite is on, double, triple or even
quadruple hook-ups are possible! Silver
salmon are highly voracious feeders and
are known for their aggressive strikes
and acrobatic tail-walking runs.
