So I am just leaving gustavus alaska after a week of halibut fishing. What a trip of a lifetime. All in all must have caught over 30 halibut plus a bunch of other stuff. Most of the catch were slot fish. Means over 42" and under 80" My highlight of the trip was my 76" 240 pound halibut that the captain had a tag for so I could keep it. What a fight. A little over an hour and as soon as I dropped the line back in nailed a 40" one. Looks little in the pic. Saw orcas (got an amazing picture) humpback whales, dolphins, sea lions, otters, seals, bald eagles just so amazing. Here are a few pics from my phone but will post more when I get home.
