Fishing for giant halibut in Resurrection Bay is a saltwater fisherman's dream. Accessed from the picturesque town of Seward, Resurrection Bay is the premier destination for Alaska halibut fishing. The bay's currents and bottom structure create a confluence of nutrient-rich water and unparalleled habitat for several species of bottom fish, including giant halibut. These waters are loaded with trophy halibut, lingcod, rockfish and, when in season, hundreds of thousands of silver salmon. Halibut are permanent residents of these waters, meaning that these giant fish are in season all summer long.
