Halibut

Trip Summary

Halibut bite has been excellent lately with good quality fish hitting the docks daily. We usually have to move around a little initially to find biters of quality size (that 38 - 46" range are the best eaters in my opinion - good size filets plus high quality meat...once they're over 50" the quality of meat starts to decline in my opinion). We won't keep anything less than 32" on our boat unless the fish is really hurt and likely won't survive. Once we find the biters in the size we're looking for, a couple drifts and we can get our fish. We've also scored some quality bycatch of lingcod and bocaccios as well.
