A couple of us fished the bay today to break in our new licenses. They worked just fine... My buddy had one of those "clicker counters" and by the end of the day we had 42 fish. Sorta caught us by surprise since today was a slow day. Keeper halibut was deep... 73ft. Coast Guard was checking a lot of boats.

That Halibut looks like it died from a headache. LOL! Nice job!

Anyone wish to chime in on this one...?:food-smil
Only place I can think of would be the main channel where BEEEEEG BOATS come and go, aware of a few spots that hold Halibut inside the Bay, PM me and I'll unload'em spots forya.

West side of the bay, south of the tip of Shelter Island, north of bait barge. When I have my meter set at 60 feet the bottom can go off the meter there.

Found 70' southwest of bait barge by the sub base. Halibut are north of the bridge also.

Fished that area and several other spots in the bay yesterday, not a single fish. Had 2 bites that didn't stick for a 1/2 day effort.

Tough day... Did you have live bait?
