    Pickup for this trip is at Glorietta Bay. On this trip we concentrate on Halibut. Over the years, Capt. Al has developed very specific techniques to target Halibut consistently. We also do get some bycatch of Bass and other fish to keep it interesting, but we are concerned on catching halibut. Most of the time we fish in the Bay for these, because that is where the concentration of fish is located. Timing for this trip may be changed a bit to accommodate tides.
