Another Halibut and Salmon Combo Charter today on the Sea Quest. We first tried to put the group on some nice sized Halibut at the Island but didn’t get a big take downs. The jigs managed to hook a few keeper Lingcod that put up a good fight in the strong current. At about 11:30 we moved a few miles and drifted for some Salmon. We caught a few on the first drift but the bite soon died off.
We still needed around fifty halibut so we made a move across the Montague straights where we were able to get a good bite going in about 180′ of water. The boat was limited with small halibut by about 4pm. There were also a few Silver Salmon on top of the Halibut grounds and some people were fortunate enough to catch a limit of 3 a piece. Everyone on the boat worked extremely hard for their fish and did a great job at filling their bag limit just in time. Good work everyone it was a pleasure fishing with you all. What a fun group of people today.
We have a private charter tomorrow and we look forward to some nice weather and hopefully some big halibut. Stay tuned for a report tomorrow. FISH ON!!!
