A company from Anchorage rented the boat out exclusively for a full day halibut trip. I wanted to try out a new spot at the island I’ve have drove over a few times. I’m glad I did because within 5 minutes of dropping the anchor we hooked into a 135lb halibut. The bite stayed consistent with a nice average of halibut for some time. During our long sit on the rock pile we were also able to land 12 big ling cod. Right before pulling the anchor we scored and hooked into another 100lb halibut. It was a perfect day and everything went according to plan- even the weather which is unusual. After our long sit at the ‘hog’ hole we didn’t leave much time to limit the boat with halibut. But with a little help from the fish gods we were able to pull over 50 halibut in less than an hour and limited the boat with some white gold.
We had a blast fishing with you guys, way to go today! FISH ON!!!
