The Best Winter King Fishing is Just About Any Time!
The Season Never Ends! The Flavor and Texture are Second to None.
In addition to being a true year-round fishery, real salmon connoisseurs will tell you that Winter kings (aka feeder kings) are the best tasting salmon of all. The texture is sublime, and the flavor is clearly superior to spawning salmon. And the best news of all: You can catch Winter (feeder) kings in Kachemak Bay all year long! While most Alaska salmon fishers are thawing last year’s catch and dreaming of next year’s spawners arriving, you can be landing the best salmon on the planet: The Kachemak Winter King.
The Homer Winter King Salmon Tournament is the largest fishing tournament on the West Coast! Depending on conditions, the tournament is usually held in late March. Over $200,000 in prize money is awarded annually to the largest Kings caught, and since 2021, the Champion Fish has averaged $77,910 in total cash earnings.
Land’s End welcomes winter king fishers all year long, and the irresistible lure of or Getaway Special makes Fall, Winter and Spring fishing even sweeter!
