Captain Shane
Welcome to the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World! And in our opinion a YEAR ROUND fishing playground for terrific saltwater king salmon, summer & fall silver salmon, and rockfish fishing and the all around favorite COMBO charter fishing trip for multiple species.

With ice free seas and mild winter temperatures Homer is an ideal location close to Alaska's largest population area where anglers who just can't get enough fishing now have open water opportunities all year long. In fact, we are on the water 200+ days a year!

Check out those Barn Doors we landed!

Leaving 2020 Behind - Hey Folks, Captain Shane here. For everyone on the planet last year was one most folks prefer to forget. Driftwood Charters survived the storm and kept both boats running full time for the duration of the summer season and the winter transition was smooth with lots of feeder king salmon and tanner crabs for our clients.

We are now transitioning from early Spring to early Summer and the saltwater fishing prospects out of Homer are looking bright for the charter fishing fleet. Seats are booking fast for the prime summer tourist period as well as for early Fall when anglers want to top off their freezers for the long winter. Its now MAY and the big halibut are moving into Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay for their summer feeding. Rockfish are plentiful and feeder kings are always available while we wait on the Summer migration of spawning salmon. ~Fish On!~ Captain Shane

Click to see why Combos are so popular.

SALMON - The feeder King salmon fishing this winter and spring was excellent as it always is. The numbers indicate very healthy survival and fish were almost everywhere we fished. This provides us with king salmon fishing year round. As the migrating salmon runs begin in all the Cook Inlet streams our salmon charters frequently get a mix of kings, pinks, chums, even a few sockeye and a bit later the coho salmon start moving through. Silver salmon fishing is an Alaskan favorite whether you fish the saltwater or the freshwater streams.

ROCKFISH - The Black Rockfish are abundant with a limit of five per day and add some delicious eating for our clients who opt for our Homer combo salmon/rockfish or combo halibut/rockfish charter trips to more distant fishing grounds. We will sometimes troll for them or choose to jig for them depending on the area we are fishing. Occasionally we may encounter yelloweye rockfish, china rockfish, greenling, or quillbacks to add a bit of variety. And its on light tackle to increase the fun.

HALIBUT - Halibut fishing with Driftwood Charters was very rewarding last season. One of our season's barn doors pushed the scales past the 200 pound mark and there were a number of days not all the big ones fit in the fish box. The new fishing regulations now require one of the two halibut to be 32" or less (~14#) and the other can be any size. That didn't stopped our guests from taking home some impressive coolers full of fish on their charter fishing trip as the photos show.

COMBO FISHING - You name it, we got it. Salmon-Halibut, Salmon-Rockfish, Halibut-Rockfish, and sometimes Salmon-Halibut-Rockfish. Most Alaskans and the smart visitors will opt for this charter fishing trip. For the little extra cost to add another species to the day's fishing the rewards in the fish box you take home prove to be worth the cost. Plus you end up with both bottom fish and wild salmon to give you a variety of choices in the kitchen when fish is on your menu.

Remember that our area still maintains a two halibut limit per person. On June 27th one of our derby ticket holding anglers released a 73 inch 205 pound halibut while fishing which qualified him for a chance at the Catch and Release drawing for a $500 cash prize. This category is to encourage conservation of the giant female spawners to insure future generations of good catches.

FEEDER KINGS -Our offshore salt waters are filled with an abundance of younger King salmon (feeders) from hatcheries and healthy wild stocks all along the Pacific West Coast from Canada to Oregon that are providing an exceptional fishery as you can see by the many salmon photos. These areas are stocking 250 MILLION King salmon in the ocean each year and those fish along with wild sources migrate to Alaskan waters to feed and grow and eventually return to their home waters to spawn. We are the beneficiaries of those programs and our reward is some incredible King salmon fishing 365 days a year. Our motto: We never close! So if you need your 2021 King Salmon FIX, whether you are a traveling visitor or an Alaskan looking for a chance to land a King salmon this summer, look no further.

Our Objective is to satisfy the customer so its important for you to choose the type of fishing trip you are most interested in. Some prefer to engage in a trip for a single species like all halibut or just salmon fishing. The more adventurous types may opt for one of the many Combination (COMBO) charter trips. Halibut/Salmon, Halibut/Rockfish, or Salmon/Rockfish are all offered for those wanting to experience the thrill and challenge of fishing for multiple species in the same day. These charter trips cover more water as the fish are in different areas so we will be traveling more miles. We don't have any fuel surcharges like other charters. Its all just built into the price.

The photo at right documents one of those RARE days in Alaska saltwater fishing when all five Pacific Salmon species are within reach on a single trip. Of course you still can't make them bite but when you have so many different possibilities of what is on the line its a lot of fun keeping your fingers crossed that the next fish is one that still needs to be caught. This was our day and all before 10am July 9th. And we ended that 2013 season with THREE GRAND SLAM SALMON days.

Good Luck and Good Fishin' to ya, Captain Shane

SPRING ~ SUMMER ~ FALL Full day Homer Fishing Charters

DRIFTWOOD CHARTERS prides itself in being a one-of-a-kind operation where every trip on the water is "customized" to the varying conditions of the day. This is no cookie cutter experience where day after day anglers are hauled to the same old spots regardless of the conditions or the willingness of the fish to bite. Captain Shane Blakely optimizes each day's success by utilizing not only his personal knowledge and experience on these waters but also a wealth of real-time information derived from his network of other skippers pooling their firsthand daily catch information for the benefit of the entire group. Armed with this information and a willingness to discuss the day's fishing prospects with his clients as they head out results in a trip most suited to the goals of the anglers on board. Captain Shane offers a variety of trips from single species adventures to that "combo of a lifetime" you'll never forget. The combination (combo) charters are always dependent upon the season and availability of certain types of fish as well as weather conditions so its imperative you discuss your fishing goals with Shane before choosing your booking dates to insure the potential for success.
