Weather was calling for a NE 30kt of wind and big seas. Everyone agreed that we would go halibut fishing or no fishing at all. The group was already stocked up on salmon and had their hearts set on white meat. The weather was not too bad at Cape Resurrection so we continued to head east. I got in the lee of an island to protect us from the wind at our first spot. We soaked for about 2.5 hours and pulled out 3 big ones and 1 small halibut. Our biggest fish looked about 90 lbs. After a long cold soak it was time for some action. We drove off shore into the larger seas and wind to try to load the boat up. By 3:30 we had landed our last halibut. Not too shabby for celebrating two birthdays on the boat today!
Great trip everyone, you guys were tough…FISH ON!!!
