Coordinating a fishing trip to Alaska is a lot more involved than a weekend getaway to the cabin. When you consider the many variables such as weather, gear, and timing, an all-inclusive vacation is probably your best option. Still, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before hiring any Alaska fishing guide, and Jimmie Jack’s is no exception.
By now, it’s no secret that Homer, Alaska, offers some of the best halibut fishing in the world. Discerning anglers who understand what makes a world-class fishing adventure will tell you that you’re in for the trip of a lifetime with Jimmie Jack Fishing. When you first step foot upon the 35 foot Bay Weld boat for your maiden voyage, you’ll know you’re in good hands.
Although summer seems to be the most popular season for fishing, fall in Alaska presents an assortment of perks to eager anglers. Besides a few peak runs for some species in July and August, autumn is still one of the best times to target salmon and trout on the Kenai River. Moreover, halibut fishing on the Cook Inlet can be productive through September and sometimes into October.
