From mid-May to mid-September every year thousands of anglers come to Homer, "The Halibut Fishing Capitol of the World", to fish in the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby.
We are gearing up for this, the 31st Annual Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby. There are more than 100 tagged fish out there, including the GCI $50,000 and $35,000 toward a vehicle of your choice at Stanley Ford or Stanley Chrysler. Catch a previous year tagged fish and win $100.
The Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby is the longest running halibut fishing competition with the largest total payout in Alaska.
Tickets are sold all over town, so don't go fishing without one!
