Buddy boated over to the island to try for some yellowtail. I heard a lot of boats were headed to pyramid so decided to stay clear of there and head to center of the island. Didn't take long to find bonita and a ton of white fish. Moved a few times due to lack of current. Last stop I get small bits and feels like a bat ray. Pull it up to the boat and it's the biggest halibut I have ever caught or seen. 4ft long and 40lbs. Also add we did catch a yellowtail. Fun day, choppy ride back.
Tight lines

Thank you everyone. I'm still in shock. I can't believe how much meat came off this butt.

Hope you have a good way to freeze, keep it fresh. We got one of those deals that suck out the air, best thing we ever got for that, 6 months later, still fresh as the day we caught the fish.
