    fished SMB on 8/17 loaded the tank with squish on the grounds waited for a white to swim through...no bites but around 7.30 short flylined rod goes off ends up being a 28lb hali...fish probably came off the bottom 50 or 60ft to eat that bait...whatever works right....get out of seabass mode run home pick up my 22 month old daughter and 4 year old son ...both really wanted to go fishing so with load of good bait and what i thought was a good sign of an active halibut this was as good a time as ever...get set up on the first drift and 15 minutes later my son is cranking down on his first fish ever...when the fish hit the deck he was so stoked 25.5 inches perfect size for his first fish...a day i know he and i will never forgot...Congrats again FBD great job and can't wait for the next trip!!!!

    When I saw you on the water the look on your sons face was priceless. You are the Halibut slayer for sure. I will see you on the water. Congrats on getting your kids on the water and catching. Memories for a lifetime.
