Halibut was again very strong this week. Thursday was a slower day, but the other days were all a repeat of the past few weeks. Biggest one was caught by Alan from AZ 182 lbs (Texas). They were caught all over the map, on pink salmon for bait mostly. I was able to go out one day and helped a friend land a 119 lb halibut! Nikolas must have a healed up arm he took the young kids out all under 14 years old and landed a 76 lb. We were fishing by the key hole in 241 feet.
Several Orca pods were spotted down the coast this week.
