Homer is a colorful fishing town, set in the wide open panorama of the Kachemak Bay, with mountains and glaciers all around the horizon. Its most scenic part might be the Spit, a long strip of land that stretches into the Bay. During the summer, Homer is famous for halibut fishing, and at the beginning of the fall, in September, there are a few weeks when the so-called Fishing Hole is litterally filled-up with salmon. They are so numerous that you don't even have to bait them, but just throw in a hook and snag them.
