for the first time in a decade HALIBUT reappeared on STELLWAGEN BANK in modest to good numbers. HALIBUT up to 82 pounds were landed and larger ones were lost, one right at the boat! various types of bait and water temps. resulted in their reappearance. fish were caught on the gravel bottom with jigs and salmon heads producing. we plan on having at least one rod dead sticked at all times for them. pic. below of the world record 50# test line class record HALIBUT caught two decades ago on BIG MAC.
