Fishing Charters

Taking a fishing charter from a small boat harbor is a classic Alaska experience. It’s a time to bond with friends and family, to enjoy the thrill of excellent fishing, and it’s a way for many Alaskans to stock their freezers for the winter. This week on Outdoor Explorer, we’re taking our show on board a fishing charter outside of Homer. Host Charles Wohlforth gets the rundown on new halibut regulations in effect this year and an insider’s perspective on what makes a fishing charter fun and successful.
