Homer is the Halibut Capital of the world, and for good reason!  Surrounded by beautiful snow-capped mountains, Homer’s Kachemak bay is a boater’s dream, with coves to explore, beaches to comb, and Alaska’s most famous bottom fish–The Alaskan Halibut–plentiful and delicious.  Each summer the Homer Halibut Jackpot Derby is held through the end of summer, with a winning fish in the 300~400+ pound range landing a huge cash jackpot.
