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 the 32'
diesel-powered Grand Aleutian, one of Alaska's most
luxurious sportfishers. The Grand Aleutian features
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.
The Grand Aleutian's owner and captain 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. Elected by his peers as a board
member 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 operate offshore
charter boats in the Florida Keys.
Check out the What To Bring and Homer, AK pages for tips on how to
package and ship your fish, motion-sickness prevention, travel to Homer,
lodging, restaurants, and on-shore activities.
Call today to speak directly with Captain David about turning your
Alaskan vacation into the fishing trip of a lifetime!
Release A Beast! Any angler who chooses to release a halibut over
250lbs will receive a complimentary fishing trip aboard the Grand Aleutian
as a thank you from Capt. David and the DeepStrike Sportfishing. Weight
will be determined in the water by measurement(must be over 77").
