    Well, I went back to see if I could locate some of those missed opportunities from yesterday. The bite was steady early and after a few shorts I finally had one that felt good. Unfortunately, it soon came unbuttoned and the bite slowed and then stopped. About an hour and a half later the fish turned on again and I was called over to my friend. He had just lost a nice fish (as he described it: solid weight with big waving head shakes). Spurred on by the new bite, I dropped a fresh bait down and soon set the hook on a solid fish. I didn't think she was too big due to her lack of fight and figured she would be around 10lbs. Turned out to be wrong. She went 38" and approximately 25lbs. This fish was very fat and extemely thick. The bite turned off again and my friend and I headed to some other areas. On our last stop I hooked up again to a decent fish. This one was fighting like a 25lber but ended up being 29 1/2" and about 10lbs. I've been releasing all by halibut under 10lbs and think the karma is working.

    How do you make a 10 pound halibut look small?

    I fished various spots throughout the day but the depths have all been less than 45'. My rig - 20lb flouro tied to 20lb mono, trap rig of course. I typically use a Shimano Teramar rods (8' MH w/fast action) with a Calcutta 400s. Call out to Shimano - call me when you want to sponsor a kayak fisherman.;)
