“We worked with Coastal Realty Homer searching for a recreational property across the Bay from Homer. Both Art and Ken researched and presented several properties to us. With their help we found our little piece of heaven on Kachemak Bay. Thanks, guys!”
“Art at Coastal Realty Homer has assisted us in the sale of two condos. His attention to detail and knowledge of real estate regulations helped our transactions close smoothly. We trust Art with all our real estate transations."
“Being first-time home buyers, we had lots of questions and more than a little bit of anxiety. Art walked us through the process step by step and always had our back. We really appreciate the personalized service that we received.”

Named for former fishery biologist Nick Dudiak, whose two-fold vision was to create a fishery accessible to all ages and provide a financial boost to the area, the Fishing Hole, as it is commonly known, was initially stocked with salmon smolt in 1984. As returning salmon circle the lagoon in search of a nonexistent stream where they can spawn, fishermen line the banks. The more fish, the more fishermen.
A city campground is located on one side of the lagoon, the Spit Trail passes right by, and a large parking area separates the Fishing Hole from Spit Road. In 1990, the lagoon’s success earned it the title of “Best Sport Fish Enhancement Project in the Nation.” The most angler days in one year were 32,000 in 2004. The least was 9,000 in 2009.
