big halibut, 55lb and 65lb from the skis

Postby dudeonaski » Mon Sep 25, 2017 3:46 am

My fishing partner and I got on some big halibut over the last couple weeks, his came in at 55lbs, and caught us off guard since we weren't specifically targeting them, I came back a week later on a solo run to see if anymore were in the area and hauled up a 65lb'er. We may have found a new honey hole! both these were caught on fairly light gear for halibut - the set-ups we normally run for rockfish and ling cod. shot the 55lb fish with my phone (all i had with me), and the 65lb with the gopro, don't know enough about video resolution editing to make it look right, but here here's the YouTube vid of the two:

Deleting post as all the Admin has been catching is Pinfish, football sized Puffers, and 2 lb Speckled Trout..

Oh.. And we are being kicked off the Outer Banks preemptively due to Maria.

Now i have to deal with the Travel Insurance people. So I don't want to hear about 55+ Halibut

Lololol

Lol! sorry Steve! With winter just around the corner, I'll be sitting with the ski garaged till around March most likely...very few winter fishing opportunities up here. Gotta get out and get the fix in before the long winter comes through.

lol! we've had some pretty good late season weather...unfortunately, i think thats done. small window middle of next week with less than 4 foot swell, then the next foreseeable future is 7 foot plus with high winds..a sure sign to start thinkin of winterizing.
