Told my partner after catching' a few legals early AM last week that we'd be lucky to get any outside of noon to 3 PM today.
Partner nails 15 pound fish at 7:15, all gravy at this point.
We Sardined around until noon for 4 shorts between us, and me losing count of all my raked baits.
Went to where I caught last Fridays 10 pounder.
227 PM partner nails 17 pound Halibut.
245 PM partner nails a 32 pound Halibut.
The best part is when I tell my partner if he gets bit he'd better stick the treble in the fishes lower jaw, and he went 3 for 3.
We never lost any fish, we just didn't get to swing on everything.
Magic depths were 70 and 75 and 76 feet.
Everyone is eating Halibut tonight between our two families.
I created a Frankenstein today!

Congrats!!! If I had more time tomorrow I'd head up that way. Will be poking around LA Harbor looking for them instead with my 6 year old.

Never lost the touch, just out of touch with SMB, that's as much as you get Asher.
I worked my ASS off over the last 3 trips to find these fish!
Now that I have the fish on my radar . . . I'm taking them with me, good luck!!

John.

Good to hear your back in the bay John I saw ya out there and tried to call ya on the raido. The halibut fishing has been pretty good this year with almost no one fishing them and there everywhere this year. The only problem is the bait this year its been hit or miss ive had to make my own a lot

Whenever I see you next I'll tell you why I've been away so long.

Was that you trolling the bottom lets say 7-8 AM same area I was drifting, and kicking' in-n-out (not about double-doubles) of gear?
We did manage the 715 fish there, and lots of rake marks.
Do not keep the radio on Jeffrey, unless I'm at SBI or parts further west. John.
