|Join us in Homer, Alaska, "The Halibut Fishing
Capital of the World!" for a taste of the finest fishing
Alaska has to offer. A half-day's drive or short flight
from Anchorage, Homer allows access to 2500 square
miles of the world's finest sightseeing, whale
watching, bird-viewing, and of course, FISHING!
When you join us, you'll be fishing aboard either the
32' Grand Aleutian, or the 34' Irish Mist. Both vessels
feature a heated cabin and restroom, large fishing deck,
top quality electronics and safety equipment, Cummins diesel power,
and an exceptional array of fishing tackle.
Fishing is at its peak May through September, and catching fish is the
norm, not the exception! The average day's limit of 2 halibut easily
yields 15+ lbs of fillets, worth over $300 if bought from a fish market.
DeepStrike Sportfishing's owner is lifelong
Alaskan resident David Bayes. Utilizing a degree
in Biological Sciences and a passion for fishing,
David has quickly carved out a niche amongst the
competitive Homer fishing fleet, and is well known
as a top fisherman. Having previously served as
president of both the Alaska Charter and Homer Charter
Associations, Capt. David takes great pride in his business and the
services he provides. During the off-season, Capt. David works with
local boat builders constructing custom sportfishers and work boats,
or heads south to Montana.
