Halibut Fishing | Craig Alaska Prince of Wales Island

Halibut fishing on Prince of Wales island is excellent.  Most of our guests prefer the taste of halibut over any other salt water fish.  SouthEast Alaska Lodge targets halibut using short and light Shimano Trevala rods, combined with a high-speed Avet reel.  Halibut are caught by anchoring our North River Seahawk O/S and jigging large halibut jigs or using herring on a rock cod lead. 

In Southeast Alaska, the Halibut average from 15 to 70-pounds.  It’s not uncommon to reel up a "Barn Door” Halibut ranging from 100 to 300-pounds.  Average running time from the dock to Halibut grounds ranges from 30-minutes to an hour.
