Joel Barish wakes up at 5 am, where the sun is still shining early in the morning at the Homer Spit in Alaska. A full 5-hour drive from Anchorage, Joel joins a halibut fishing boat and tries his luck with the fishing pole. Watch as Joel catches two halibuts, and heads back to the Coal Point Trading Company where his fish are cleaned, processed, sealed, and frozen to be shipped back home. Seafood doesn’t get any fresher than right off the boat! For more information on fishing in Alaska, visit

  • Hi Joel, you told us while you were visiting your parents in Surprise, AZ about the halibut you caught. Now Merle and I were able to watch you in action and see how it was all done. Interesting! Your parents told us they couldn’t wait to eat it.

  • Hi Joel,

    What did your Dad react when he received the package from Homer, AK ? I am sure that you and your family did eat the dinner. 🙂

    I enjoyed to watch the video, love to view the beautiful mountains with snow.
