Halibut fishing in Cook Inlet and Deep Creek has only been truly popularized in the last 25 years or so. When Great Alaska started out, we were launching small boats into the surf ourselves behind our 4 wheel drive Suburbans and trucks. Fear of swamping the rig kept the boats small and the process quick! But in the late '90's, when the launching services began operating, we were able to launch larger and larger boats...thus allowing us to access farther and farther from the beach. We still generally fish fairly shallow water and "work the tides" to keep our baits on the bottom during and around the slack tides - making for really enjoyable fishing with sometimes only 12-24 ounces of lead in only 100 to 150 feet of water! When the tides aren't in our favor as much, we'll have to use a lot more and the fishing time may be pretty short...but it's always fun and the fishing is typically outstanding.
