We are very pleased to annoucne that the 1st Annual  2021 Homer Talibut Tournament will take place Friday & Saturday June 4-5 2021. Your registration fee includes fishing on both days.


Homer Alaska is known worldwide as the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World. For 34 years, the Homer Chamber of Commerce has held the Jackpot Halibut Derby running through the summer months. In 2020, this has shifted to the First Annual Homer Halibut Tournament which will be a 2-day fishing tournament to see who can pull in the biggest “barn door” and come home with the jackpot. The $100 entry fee lets you fish both days to chase big ‘buts, or enter side tourneys for a multispecies grand slam and other exciting challenges. There will also be many random prize drawings throughout the tournament.

Tournament Headquarters and Weigh-Ins will be held by the Deep Water Dock in the Homer Harbor at the end of Freight Dock Road. There will be an event area set up in that same section of the Harbor. This year, the public events such as Food Trucks, Beer Gardens, Music and Award Ceremonies will be announced closer to the event date so they can be conducted in compliance with COVID-19 Alaska State Health Guidelines.

Don’t miss your chance to win big prize money and enjoy world-class fishing!
