Today the Sea Quest had her first straight halibut trip in a week. We were excited to soak some salmon heads and see if anyone was home. The first fish to hit the deck set the bar pretty high at 113 lbs. The jigs were hot this morning and we landed another three fish around 100lbs. By afternoon the jig bite died off and we started getting take-downs on the salmon carcasses. Mary, from Santa Rosa, CA, was the first to land a hog on a salmon head and it was only her second time fishing ever. Seven people on the boat set personal records for the largest fish they have ever caught. By the end of the day the fish were still biting but the size remained consistent at about 25lbs. We pulled the anchor at 16:30 with nine fish over 50lbs. A great day for the Sea Quest and even better day for our clients. Unfortunately quite a few fishermen felt allergic to the motion of the ocean but the energy on deck seemed to keep their minds off the seasickness and let them focus on railing monster halibut. What a day guys – Keoni and I had a great time and we’re looking forward to fishing with you all again next year.
