    That "onilith" (?) ear bone will tell you it's age. Maybe that "tanker" waited his whole life..... for you to show up yesterday. ... to give you the long deserved birthday present. Fishing "karma" for sure.

    Either way brother. ... great catch. Congrats and thanks for the post and great picts!

    I worked the boats for a very long time and never landed a legal WSB or legal halibut. Then got on a stupid bite of WSB and found them really easy. I am 66 years old and still have not caught a legal halibut. Maybe I should use a used spark plug for a weight, seen that work many times when working the boats.

    Congratulations. I have chased those fish for decades and they have seldom allowed me to catch them. Somehow the rare occasions they do keep me coming back.

    Hell ya! What rig did you get them on? I took a first time out kid on my boat a ways back, handed him a rod with a sardine and 1 oz sinker to keep him out of my hair while I was fishing and he caught a 48" estimated 45- 50lb. I personally havn't got one and I'm 53. Congrats on your score.
    1/2 ounce slider, 2/0 circle hook, 30lb fluorocarbon...of course the Candy Bait😉
