Yep. I'm one of those old diehards too, with a Nikon film camera. That's what I took up there, along with about 3 dozen rolls of film. Next trip I'll have a digital SLR though. If you can get on Google Earth, take a look at Homer Spit, which is where all the fishing boats are docked. About halfway out on the spit you'll see a pond with a small inlet out into the bay. The pond is called the Homer Spit Fishing Hole. It's stocked regularly with king salmon fingerlings which leave and do their at-sea tour and then return as adults to the pond. There are some monster salmon in there and you can fish for them if you have the time and inclination; it's usually wall to wall fishermen, AKA tourists. We passed on that. Amazing to see a school of huge salmon swimming by 20 feet away. BTW, not many are caught; they're in the spawning mode although they can't spawn in the pond, and they don't eat. If you decide to try them check with the guy at the Sport Shed tackle shop directly across the road from the pond and he'll give you some tips on how to maybe catch them. The Sport Shed has 3 efficiency apartments upstairs which is where we stayed. Not the Taj Mahal or a Hilton Hotel but clean and you can cook instead of paying restaurant prices. Halibut are a sure thing! It's about a 2 hour run out to the halibut areas in open ocean around the end of the Kenai Peninsula and incredible scenery. Lots of goats up on the mountains, occasional black bears coming down on the beach, sea otters, seals and dozens of whales. Never expected to see 60-70 ft whales in shallow water; we usually fished within a mile of the beach and in 50-100 ft of water. Our average halibut was about 60-70 lbs, largest was 129. Our captain released any less than 50 lbs. There were a couple in the 300 lb range caught while we were there. Great trip!!!
