Millerís Landing charters always include fishing for ling cod (in season), red snapper, black bass and rock fish as part of our fishing targets on a halibut charter, and our catch records are among the best in the Seward area.

Pacific Halibut are the most desired and largest fish of Alaskaís sport fisheries. They are plentiful in our waters throughout our fishing season, May through September. Sport caught halibut usually range from 20 to 50 lbs. , although larger fish are not uncommon. Generally we fish between 100 and 450 feet, with an average of about 300 feet. It takes about an hour and a half to 2 hours to get to the best fishing grounds. We normally drift over our fishing areas and then pull up, move back over them and drift again. Although we do drop anchor sometimes, we donít believe in anchoring and sitting on one spot all day.

Ling Cod season opens July 1st. Minimum legal size is 
35 inches. These fish can grow to over 80 lbs. The limit is one fish per day per person. Lings can be caught at almost any depth but we catch most of them at 15 to 150 feet. Many people prefer the moist, succulent, white meat of ling cod to halibut. Lings are often caught pre season and must be released. 

Black Sea Bass are both easy and fun to catch. They are  the most prolific of the rockfish species and are found near shallow rocky areas.  Fishermen are limited to four black bass per day. These fish average about 4 to 5 pounds but range up to 12 pounds. We normally fish for them with medium weight spinning or bait casting gear, using hoochies and herring or shrimp lures. These fish are great fun for young and big kids alike as they hit fast and furious. Sea bass (black bass) are delicious to eat.

Red snapper (Yellow-eye Rockfish) are one of the tastiest fish we have and the limit is one per day. They are generally caught while fishing for halibut and ling cod. As you can see there are a good variety of fish to catch during a halibut charter, and all are delicious to eat.

Cancellation Policy:

  • A $10 cancellation fee is imposed for all reservations cancelled.
  • Cancellations must be received by email only to millerslanding@alaska.com   The cancellation notice date is the date the email was received at millerslanding@alaska.com   Phone cancellations will not be accepted.
  • Cancellations received by email 30 days prior to the first day of the reservation are charged a $10 cancellation fee and you will receive a refund of 90% of the total amount of the reservation.
  • Cancellations received by email 15 to 29  days prior to the first day of the reservation are charged a $10 cancellation charge and you  will receive a 75% refund. of the total amount of the reservation.  
  • Cancellations received by email 14 days to zero days prior to arrival are charged a $10 cancellation fee and you will receive a 50% refund only if we are able to rebook  your camping, cabin, fishing, kayaking, watertaxi, shuttle, lunch, or  activity.   If we are not able to rebook your reservation then no refunds will be issued and you.  You must call or e-mail Miller's Landing post date of cancelled stay in order for us to research whether or not your site booked. Sites that were booked of course qualify for the 50% refund, sites that were not unfortunately do not. 
  • In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller's Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge.  If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. . Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller's Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller's Landing store or items sold online.  For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
  • A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller's Landing. Miller's Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.

Please note:  Miller's Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has  a very short tourist season which can make it  difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.  

If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation.  Miller's Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays,  health issues or other unforeseen hardships.  We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied  if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.

Please understand that Miller's Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank  for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations.  Thank you for your understanding.
