Jackpot Halibut Derby
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 the, the 2017 Annual Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby.
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!
Last year we had many unlucky anglers early in the Derby who did not have Derby Tickets, one caught a good-sized halibut and one caught a tagged fish that would have earned him $$$. This year, Austin Nelson of North Pole, Alaska caught a 252.2 lb halibut and won! BUY YOUR DERBY TICKET TODAY.
