June 5th Halibut

June 8, 2012

We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day today and so we went just a little further in search of halibut than we normally go. The guests were troopers and fished hard for the whole 6 hour trip and they caught all kinds of interesting sea-creatures both big and small! Here is a list of what they caught:

-2 Pacific Cod, 2 Rock-Fish, 2 Big halibut that had to be realeased (one 60 inches and one 63 inches), 2 small halibut that went in the ice-box, a very large Skate (like a sting ray kind of), a plethora of Turbot and to top it all off, 2 cephalopods (octopus) one that was about 5 feet long and one that was about 3 feet long.

It was a really fun trip, the girls hooked the big halibut and the boys hooked the small ones (as usual) and we just had a great time.
