Halibut Fishing in Seward
by The Alaska Life
Most Alaskans are familiar with travelling large distances to recreate in different regions of this land that is over a half-million square miles. Our trip to go halibut fishing in Seward was no exception. When you're traveling from the Mat-Su Valley, like we were, I know it's not that far, but doing the trip in just over 24 hours with a pit-stop in Soldotna made it seem that way!
Rod 'n Real charters at 6:30 AM and after a safety briefing, fishing license check, and a few other formalities, we were on our way. I will say that when halibut fishing in Seward, it is typical to take quite a lengthy boat ride out toward Montague Island, and that's where we were headed as we made our way out of the harbor. Alaskan weather is unpredictable and unforgiving—today was no different. We found ourselves hammering our way toward our destination in an aluminum paint-shaker named "Four Aces."
Back at the docks in Seward, we filleted our catch, grabbed some food, and headed back toward home. It's a special thing to live in Alaska where you can travel to a place, have an experience which encapsulates ocean fishing, wildlife viewing, and a gorgeous drive, while still being able to return to your bed in just over a day. Gotta love 'The Alaska Life'!
