About Bob's Trophy Charters - Day Trips
Bob’s Trophy Charter’s captains have worked hard to become some of the best! Each of our captains and their crews are friendly and nice. It’s easy to spend your time with them fishing, and of course catching out in the waters of our beautiful Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Alaska. Homer, Alaska is the Halibut Capital of the World. Fisherman from all over the world come here to take a shot at catching a monster halibut, others come to fill the freezer with meat, and the rest just simply enjoy going out to catch fish and enjoy the beauty and tranquility Homer, Alaska has to offer! When choosing Homer Alaska fishing charters, Bobs stands above the rest as we have been fishing for halibut in Homer, Alaska since 1980.

The wife and I booked a 3/4 day charter for halibut and we both caught our limit. The crew was great, very knowledgeable and helpful. The crew cleaned everybody's fish on the way back and even told us where we could get it cooked up right away. We'd caught 4 halibut and a cod so we did a side-by-side with each at Fresh Catch Cafe. We had them fried and the cod was actually better just because it's a firmer fish and holds together. They both tasted identical. Halibut is better for baking, cast-iron or whatever. Anyway, we'll book Bob's again next time we're in Homer!

We did the 3/4 day halibut tour. We had a great time on Bob's Trophy Charters. The captain and crew (Captain Pete and Cory) were amazing. They were knowledgeable and very helpful. Everyone was able to catch the limit. They provided good music and a great environment. 10/10 would recommend.

We were disappointed with our halibut fishing trip. Rob’s Trophy Charter booked 17 people on this small boat, even though their web site said they would not normally do this (web site says: “We don’t like to crowd the boat and normally she averages between 8-12 passengers a trip”). We lined the rails, one person every 3 feet. Because we had so many people fishing, everyone kept getting tangled with each other. I had to reel in my fish, and two other people’s fish, because we were all tangled up. It was a lot of work for sure, reeling in 3 fish at the same time, and no fun since they were just being dragged like dead weight. When we left the pier, the captain said that we could go to the spot where we could catch big Halibut, but after trying to fish there, and everyone getting tangled up, we had to cruise another hour, 3 hours total, to arrive at a place where all the fish were relatively small. After about 30 minutes, everyone had their 2 fish limit of small Halibut and we cruised another 3 hours back to port. On top of all this, we were recommended to use “Home Fish Processing”, instead of “Coal Point Fish Processing”, Coal Point was a closer fish processing company located right there on the pier with the boat. We had fish processed before, and the processor always weighs the fish when you give it to them so everything is up front and expectations are known. Homer Fish Processing does not weigh your fish for you so that you know how much fish you will get frozen. Instead; they just pick it up, take it to their plant and process them. I was not comfortable with this as all of us on the ship, including 2 Boat Charter Captains themselves that were on board, thought that our 2 filleted fish should weight about 20-25 pounds. I picked them up, and based on the weight of our luggage, thought that 20-25 pounds seemed about right. When we picked up our fish all we received was 12 pounds of Halibut fillets each person, basically 6 pounds per fish. On top of that, Home Fish Processing charged us about double what Coal Point Fish Processing quoted us. This is not right! I can’t help but wonder if Home Fish Processing is keeping some of the customers fish to sell themselves. Also, is Bob’s Trophy Charters getting a kick back from Homer Fish Processing to refer them to customers? In my opinion, something does not smell right hear. I would like to give a shout out to the 2 female deck hands, Cori and another young lady. They worked very had to untangle everyone so many times and did great.

Captain Cory and mate Brandon performed exceptionally well today. Luckily we had a flat calm day and Cory suggested we do a long range trip for Halibut for an extra $50. All anglers agreed and we were off. We ran for almost two hours, 50 miles, to the first spot and action was immediate. All six of us landed a halibut in the first 30 minutes. The bag limit on halibut is two fish, one over 32 inches and one less than 32 inches. Kind of a strange game so we let several go in hopes of bigger ones. We kept about 3 big ones, 40 to 50 pounds, at the first spot and headed to the second location about 15 minutes away. The second spot didn't have as much action but all the fish were 40 pounds plus and we finished our 6 over sized halibut. Just around the corner, Cory had a black rockfish honey hole and pulled in. We had our limit of 30 in just 15 minutes. Nothing huge, 3 to 6 pounds but great eating and fun on the light salmon rods. Cory then took us to a spot on the way back to finish out our under 32 inch limit for halibut. We tossed the last 4 undersize halibut in the boat in about 30 minutes. Shortly afterwards a pod of killer whales was nearby and Cory pulled up and they swam right by the boat, amazing. I have a charter business in St Thomas, and I can tell you that Bob's Trophy Charters, Cory and Brandon do their best for their guests. Please understand that when you come to Alaska for their very short season, everyone works seven days a week for 3 months plus. They have to in order to make enough to get through the other 9 months. I have seen some less than stellar reviews because someone cancelled at the last minute and weren't given a refund. Unfortunately, they can't make up the lost revenue if they refund everyone that cancels without enough notice to rebook. I also noticed some reviews that mentioned lees than perfect customer service skills. If you have ever worked 100 hours a week for three months, you would understand why the crew may get a bit grouchy. Take it with a grain of salt, they play the game to catch you fish and this is what they do best. Well done Corey and Brandon! Thanks, Marc

This is a great place to go if you want to have a good time and catch fish. The Nauti Lady has two bathrooms, plenty of seating and an awesome boat captain and crew! There were 8 of us, and we all caught nice sized halibut!
