Zero legal lobster, but a shit load of shorts. While waiting for the sun to go down my son Nick did nail a 26" butt!

How can you go wrong with a nice Halibut before even starting hooping, sweet!

After filleting a Halibut years ago, and taking the cheek meat also, I zip-tied the carcass into a hoop net, then smashed 10 sardines on top and drove to my local hooping state, dropped it down and that bad boy produced all-night long, in fact left it asis in the nets to rot in the sun and used it the next night for the same results. Just sharing something that worked for me. If the Halibut are that good in the bay I'd nail'em now/first. Suggestion.

Love your son being involved, good stuff, take care.

Did you mean you just zip tied the carcass to the net bottom? I think the sea lions would take care of that bait setup today if it wasn't in a plastic tube.

Yes zipped to the bottom of the net, 1 thru the gills and 1 around the tail.

Hooped 5 nights this week saw 1 seal in 5 days.
The 1 we did see we gave him a fat 2 pound Mac and never saw it again. LOL!

Location, location, location!!!
