We ran a bit further than usual today for our full day Halibut trip. It took 3 hours to arrive at our first destination but it proved to be worth the wait. We caught a plethora of Pelagic and Non-Pelagic rockfish as well as a majority of Halibut in an area we had yet to try this season. The bite was consistent through the whole incoming tide. Largest fish on the boat was a 120lb Halibut caught by John. He had been working a jig all morning and continuously watched people catching Halibut on bait so he decided to switch methods. The moment his bait hit the bottom it was sucked down and hooked solid by his big Halibut. At about 1pm we moved over to the western edge of the island and caught the rest of our small Halibut. It’s sure nice when things go according to plan. We arrived back at the dock at a reasonable hour and with a large load of white meat. The weather was a bit rough on the way home but tomorrows forecast predicts that the SW winds are diminishing. FISH ON!
