    LOL I hate Anchovies. When I was in College I managed a Dominos. Whenever anyone ordered a Pie with Chovies I told them we were out of Chovies as I couldn't even stand the smell of them . Now, Nice Sardines or fresh squish -well that's a different story.

    I really Don't like Fish. I like Sushi but I like someone else to make it(restraurant). When I make it , I lose my appetite. I have about 400lbs of YFT and wahoo just sitting in my freezer with my wife asking me to make her fish tacos with the wahoo which I do sometimes. I just put carnitas in my tacos. Don't like the Wahoo either. But I would fish every day if I could :) Funny thing is on the LR trips I would actually release every fish but Everyone gets pissed if I do. And its a lot easier to gaff then release sometimes.

    Maybe I should try Bat Ray Tacos?

    To me, it doesn't seem worth it to kill an animal that large to only take the wings....a very small portion of the entire animal. Seems wasteful. I caught a monster batray once and had a boat pull up next to mine and ask if they could have it. Said "nope!" and reached over the side with the needle nose and unhooked it.

    You guys all report back how they taste.

    WHY DID YOU GAFF THAT THING!!! YOU SHOULD HAVE CUT IT OFF AND LET IT GO. BAT RAYS ARE A DIME A DOZEN. IF WE DON'T EAT IT OR SELL WE SHOULD NOT HURT IT!!

    I hear ya, I love to fish and like to eat fish, but a good steak or pork ribs are usually better in my book. I tried to release barracuda on a half day boat once and got lots of dirty looks.

    Here is the Master Of The Obvious way to catch halibut.
    1. Use live bait, catch your own with a sabiki from the area you are fishing if none is available at the barge. What you catch is often better than what you can buy. Change baits often.
    2. Fish the up current edges of sand and hard bottom. Look for schools of bait.
    3. Use enough weight to stay on the bottom
    4. Big baits for big fish
    5. Release all bat rays
    6. Keep at it. Don't get discouraged!

    Here is a 42 pound beast taken from somewhere deep inside the Long Beach jungle:
