The best halibut fishing starts around the middle of May and extends through August, but good fishing for halibut can be had right through summer and into early fall. Halibut in the 50-100 pound range are caught frequently and fish in the 100-300 pound range are caught fairly often. Each year the Valdez Halibut Derby is won by fish in excess of 200 pounds. The 2006 winner weighed in at a whopping 343.6 pounds!
