When you visit Juneau, Alaska, Big Jim’s Charters is the place to call for a top-of-the-line guided halibut fishing experience. Head out on one of our spacious modern boats and see if you can reel in one of these native swimmers.

Halibut Fishing Guides in Juneau
On your four-hour halibut fishing charter, we’ll provide you with everything you need to end the day triumphant. You’ll be using our top-quality Shimano gear—including jigging and bait gear—and a combination of artificial lures and herring for bait. We use two-speed reels with an 80-pound Spectra line and 200-pound class rods for halibut fishing.
Our charters typically fish 180-400 feet for halibut. We’ll anchor up on a good hole or drift over hotspots to give you the best access to the fish. A fishing license is required for our halibut charters but is available for purchase on board. We offer four, six, and eight-hour trips, as well as multi-day charters on the Juneau waters. Halibut season in Juneau is from May to September, with fish moving into the local waters in June, July, and August.
