Camping and Fishing in Homer

I've changed the dates on this trip because I now have other plans for the July dates. I hope this change didn't screw anyone up too bad. Also, I set the departure time for Friday morning, but that can be very flexible. I just figured this would give us plenty of time to get down there, hang out, and fish on Saturday. 

I'm thinking of taking a three day weekend to carpool down to Homer, camp out, and take a chartered fishing trip.

 The fishing trip would likely cost between $145 and $300, depending on which trip we chose. (Of course no one will be forced to go fishing. If you just want to go for the road trip and the camping, that would be cool too.) While in Homer we could check out the Salty Dag Saloon and any other relevant sights as well. What do you think?

    It was okay, but little bit disappointed. People rsvp'ed and cancelled last minute. Paid for camp sites and was not used. But it was a good trip and weather was not bad.

      Who actually went? Sorry to hear you got camp sites for people and they weren't used. I also apologize that I cancelled last minute, but work comes first. If you reserved a site for me let me know and if there is any fee you paid I will gladly reimburse you.

      The only 2 people showed up at the camp site are Brian and Alia.

    Hey all. I am wondering if anyone is going to take over this meet up group??

    July 30, 2014

    • Nida

      Amy, wonder if Curtis is interested in having a co-organizer. You interested ? You and me?

      August 4, 2014

    • Curtis P.

      I can make anyone a co organizer if interested, and it would help insure functions are properly set.. meet up location times etc.

    Brian, I am leaving Friday morning. Where are we camping at?

    August 9, 2014

    • Brian J.

      I just called the city and they said that they won't do reservations for us, but that we shouldn't have any problems finding space this weekend. Nida (or anyone else leaving early on Friday), would you be willing to willing to find us spot at one of the city's campgrounds and then texting me so we know where to find you?

      In Homer you can actually camp on the beach (non camp site) and have no problems.

    Hi all! I would love to camp NAND explore Homer. I have some quite a bit of fishing so won't be going out on the charter. Also, I'd need to leave after work on Friday (4pm) and head out Sunday. Anyone else on that schedule?

    I've been out of town for while so I'm sorry I haven't posted any details lately. If people prefer leaving later on Friday afternoon I am down with that. More carpooling is better. If the site does go down, feel free to contact me at[masked] or [masked]. We will make this trip a success one way or another.

    I just made my reservation for the fishing trip. I suggest you do the same to ensure that there will be space on the boat. It was the short range halibut charter on August 16th.

    July 27, 2014

      Not going fishing. Only camping.

    Hi, hope there's room for one more! Won't be fishing though. Freezer's already full.

      Definitely room. I hope to get the details for driving down camping soon.

      Great. Thanks!

    So as of right now I have confirmations from three people, with a fourth as a maybe. From what I have heard from e-mails and personal conversations, people seem more interested in a shorter, cheaper fishing trip. I looked at the website and they currently have 18 seats available for the short range halibut charter which is $185 and runs from 7:30 AM until 3:00 PM. I looked into the salmon charters as well, but those seemed booked up. Does this sound good to all of you? Please respond one way or another. I won't be buying anyone's ticket. We can decide which trip to take on here, but then everyone is responsible for making their own reservations.

      And if anyone else knows of a different or better guide service, let me know. This is just one that a guy at work said worked well for him.

    I changed the tentative date for this so that it wouldn't overlap with the kayak trip or anyone's July 4th plans. Anyone else have a preferred date?

    I end up in Homer a lot for my job. The Salty Dog is cool. Maybe take a water taxi around Halibut Cove. It's insanely beautiful. I wish I could go but I think I might be leaving Alaska soon.
