Rules & Regs

 June 1st – 30th

Seward’s halibut are a local surprise for those who typically think only of our Silver Salmon runs.

Seward’s Halibut Tournament highlights this fishery, attracting early season visitors and anglers from throughout Alaska.
Because the tournament takes place early in the season, anglers will find it is easier to reserve a seat on one of the many charter vessels.  In addition, ramp space and trailer parking is plentiful for those anglers wanting to launch their own boats.
Daily tickets are $10.00.  Cash prizes awarded at the end of the tournament for the heaviest fish and the second and third place entries.  Complimentary Tourney Cap to daily winners
Tagged Fish Prizes!!! $1,000, $500, and $250 tags, MORE Tags for 2016 – See rules brochure for details.
