I would like to throw this out there for shits and giggles:Emoticon_Potty_Time

early season butts when the water is not so warm and sharky,who bleeds there fish in the water?
I do I tend to poon most of my butts right behind the gill plate as you will usally hit the rakers on the other side.
then I get it close to the boat if it is calm enough lol.
I find bleeding them in the water is best since the blood dont clot as easy while wet,Makes a nice fillet.
when the tuna come I dont dare cause the sharks are on them like lightning.

I like your Butts on ice in that tote

We had to go for a single tuna late in the season. We got a tuna virgin into his first and only tuna of the day.




Buy my 22' Seahawk!!!

I'm getting lookers, but no hard cash. Thanks for the comments, I took it out yesterday to exercise the ponies in the Columbia and was asking myself why I'm selling? I wish I had the space and cash for two boats. Check that, three boats, I still another drifter.

Great pic! I especially like the Albi on top. Just like a cherry on top of a sundae. Was the Albi taken on the way back in? On one of our trips to the Ranch last year we have tuna jumping all around the boat while halibut fishing. As soon as we got our halibut we rigged for tuna that day. We hadn't got out of the fleet at the Ranch when we took our first tuna. We continued to take tuna all the way to the Rock Pile.

Sorry guys no pictures. I did just sign for my Daiwa Hyper Tanacom 600FE old man reel. Dam she looks good. Looking forward to the opening of hali season and fishing those 700 drops. This could be fun.

Secret to halibut fishing is strap on a big ass shad and send her down than hold on, no magic here. If she doesn't bite than push the botton and up comes the 40oz lead and bait.. You guessed it, rubbing it in.
