| NEW BOAT OPTION FOR 2019!
DeepStrike has RETIRED the Grand Aleutian and is upgrading to a NEW
custom-built charter boat named the Current Lady! Built though partnership
with Dakota Ocean Charters, the Current Lady is a 2019 aluminum-hulled
vessel built by Bay Weld Boats in Homer, AK. The Current Lady features
TRIPLE 350 HP outboards, a 360° walk-around fishing deck, and is the first and
ONLY charter boat in Alaska to feature a SeaKeeper Gyro stabilization
system(existing Seakeeper users see reductions in side-to-side boat roll of up to
90% after installation of the stabilization gyro!) If you or another in your party
has concerns about sea-sickeness or sea-legs, then the new Current Lady is the
BEST choice in the State! Click OUR BOATS to see more info and specs on the
Current Lady, Seakeeper Gyros, and comparisons between the Grand Aleutian
and Current Lady!
|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!
You'll be fishing aboard either the 38' Current Lady (2019 upgrade from the
Grand Aleutian!), or the 34' Irish Mist. Both vessels feature a heated cabin and
restroom, large fishing deck, top quality electronics and safety equipment,
exceptional array of fishing tackle, and Alaska's ONLY Seakeeper stabilization
system (aboard the Current Lady)
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.

from Capt. David and DeepStrike Sportfishing. Weight will be determined in
the water by measurement (must be over 77").
