Homer, a stunning coast town, vital fishing port and a beautiful place for a Halibut fishing trip.

Halibut are very big fish! This is the posed shot with all the big ones! The 30 lb. one next to me was one of my two. We took home 27 pounds – and we ate it through January 2019. Flash frozen in vacuum packs we each got 13 pounds to take home. The Captain and his two female first mates were terrific and enormously helpful teaching us everything about deep sea fishing – lines were down 100 to 200 feet – and how to reel in the extremely powerful fish once they were hooked.

Our big pile of fish – a hell of a lot of halibut! A master with a rod and reel as well as a filet knife. That’s my halibut before it was gaffed and brought on board. Rick took pic as the mate and I pulled the catch in slowly and carefully. There’s our coach – The Taj – parked third from left staring out at the bay Up the hill from the seaport area, Homer continues to tantalize – we’d love to go back. Harbor view from the jetty.

“The Deadliest Catch” ships use this Harbor too.

Very cool restaurants and fishing bars here. Another harbor view toward the mainland. This sea captain had a great day and she was returning home to celebrate. Moorings and net markers look like a pile of Jellybeans. A dreamy shot of the bay and a tanker awaiting a higher tide. Beach on the other side of the harbor in sunset. Walking the beach in black and white.

Couldn’t stop taking photos here.

We had a fabulous fish dinner here after a day of halibut fishing.

This ship has been on the show “Deadliest Catch”.

Mooring buoys at rest.

The longer pier for larger ships.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I loved Homer – photographer’s dream location ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
