Every year the Alaska Department of Fish and Game renews their sportfishing regulations for the upcoming season. See here for 2023’s regulation booklet. Here are some important changes you’ll want to know if you plan on casting your line this upcoming season. 


Halibut Regulations: 

This season each individual is allowed 2 halibut per day, one under 28” and one of any size. Regulations for other types of fish should remain the same as last season. 

The ADFG sets specific days on which individuals are not allowed to catch or keep any halibut. Here are the following dates for this upcoming 2023 season which you will want to avoid: 

June: 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th

July: 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th, 25th, and 26th 

August: 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th, and 15th


You’re probably wondering how this will affect your travel plans? We are here to help! We might recommend not to book your fishing charter on Tuesday or Wednesday as most of these days during the 2023 season are off-limits for halibut. Maybe you don’t care about catching halibut and you’ve got your eyes set on those shiny silver salmon.

Whatever you may be interested in, we have a plethora of charter fishing companies listed on our website for you to choose from.
