These guys hit the jackpot!Halibut Fishing is a dream come true for the avid fisherman and novice alike. The fish are plentiful, with lots of biting action and often a big lunker will take the line. Halibut fishing is bottom fishing and it is helpful to keep your bait moving to entice the flat creature. The halibut has eyes on the top of it's head and is gazing around watching for your bait. This one's over 300#, caught Sept. '98Before a big fish is brought on board the skipper or mate will often shoot the fish to keep it from dangerously flopping about on the deck and then club the fish. Don't be alarmed, this is for your safety. A halibut is almost all muscle and a very strong animal indeed. Often other fascinating creatures are brought on board: black bass, gray cod, A big pod of Orcasling cod, octopus, Irish lords (often called the "mother in law" fish because of their very large mouths), skates, salmon and an occasional shark. You never know what that tug on the line is going to bring.
