Derby Days

"The Hal­ibut Fish­ing Capi­tol of the World" at the "end of the road” in Homer is where you can take part in the Homer Jack­pot Hal­ibut Derby. Not sim­ply a tro­phy fish derby, there are hun­dreds of tagged fish in­clud­ing the GCI $50,000 tagged fish or the Stan­ley Ford of Ke­nai Ford F-150 Tagged Fish. In ad­di­tion, ev­ery fish caught with a tag from the pre­vi­ous 25 years is worth $100 in HOMER BUCKS. The derby runs from May 15 to Sept. 15 and tick­ets are sold all over town so don't go fish­ing with­out one. Find out more at home­r­alaska.org. Homer isn’t the only Ke­nai Penin­sula port with a fa­mous hal­ibut derby. If you’re tak­ing a sport char­ter out of Se­ward in June, don’t for­get to buy a ticket for the an­nual hal­ibut derby. Daily tick­ets are $10, with a three-day week­ender tick­ets for $25. Daily prizes as well as large cash prizes are awarded at the end of the tour­na­ment for the heav­i­est fish and the sec­ond- and third-place en­tries. The derby runs from June 1-30.
