Alaska Halibut Fishing Guide
Welcome to Tenakee Springs on Chichagof Island in Southeast Alaska! Your guide is Tuck Harry and he has been doing what he loves since the 1970's! Chichagof Island is a beautiful emerald island located between Juneau and Sitka, Alaska, and is the home of Fishing Bear Charters.
The Teneakee Inlet is a 26 mile long sheltered waterway on the east side of Chicagof Island and the waters are as calm as those of an inland lake!
One of the unique things that they do when we do fishing in the Tenakee Inlet is fish for both salmon and halibut at the same time.
We troll at greater depths and so are able to attract both the king salmon and halibut using the same bait. They also use the traditional stop and drop method for halibut.
Using either halibut jigs or herring for bait, targeting the specific habitat for the prized fish.
Halibut fishing usually runs from about June 1st to September 15. The limit is one halibut per day per person. Fish 45" or less may be retained and fish greater than 68" or more may be retained but all fish betweeen 45" and 68" must be released.
The regulation is in place to conserve halibut and the sustainability of the fishery. This is because most of the females that are breeding fit within 45" to 68".
