    Hi,
    I was just wondering if anyone has heard of using a stun gun for halibut. given that I have a smaller boat (19ft), knocking out the halibut seems like a good idea before bringing it aboard. here is a link to one of the stun guns i was looking at.

    thanks for any responses

    Never drop a live halibut on the deck. Not unless you want a jumping fish flying around bruising the meat.
    Gaff the legal halibut,break some gills to bleed, and then put into the ice chest upside down (white side up) with ice on top.

    Hit it with a bat to stun. (If possible) only works briefly then they “wakeup” and go crazy.
    Push rope thru Gill out mouth.
    Brown side up throw a loop over tail Pull into a U shape. Tie it off. Cut gills. Bring in boat. Done this with butts in 50-60lb range many times. Even a large Halibut can be handled safely if done the right way.
    Big one...just shoot it. Stun gun and saltwater? Good luck
    Snake Charmer .410 or 22 mag work good

    Funny. It will not knock them out, but guessing, it will piss them off.

    You probably by now realize you were going to violate the KISS Principle, pass Murphy's Law, and land well into Darwin Award candidacy.

    Go back two steps to the KISS Principle:

    Thanks for all the replies! After reconsidering, zapping a halibut in water is probably a bad idea, but I wonder if using it after gaffing would be a bad idea.

    Besides the risk of water and electricity, I wonder if a stun gun would even knock out a halibut

    From the folks that I know that have had Taser training, the immobilization only really occurs when the shock is applied.

    You shock a big Hali and your going to have a broken leg at the minimum. How many of have seen a large Halibut go crazy on the deck of a boat... I have and your not going to stop it
    But seriously I thought this thread was a joke...
    Actually surprised its stayed civil and I haven’t had to lock it lol
