Alaska fishing at it’s best!
Seward, Alaska is located on the Kenai Peninsula at the southeastern portion of Resurrection Bay. The fishing off the coast of Seward, in both Resurrection Bay and the Gulf of Alaska, is some of the finest in Alaska with outstanding fishing for giant, barn-door halibut, mean and hard-fighting ling cod, feisty rockfish, and king, pink and silver salmon. Add some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world and you have the recipe for an unforgettable fishing adventure.
Seward hosts several tournaments and derbies throughout the fishing season including the famed Halibut Derby in June with a whopping $10,000 prize for the largest halibut of the month, and daily prizes of a free fishing day the following year for the largest catch of the day. August is time for the Silver Salmon Derby with $10,000 going to the largest overall catch, $5,000 for second place, and many other daily prizes. These derbies, hosted by the City of Seward, are a huge draw and promise some of the most exciting and fun fishing action in the world.
