Big Fish Season!

September 10, 2014 – 277 lb Alaska HalibutFall is big fish season and the fish are on a feeding frenzy to pack on weight for the coming winter. Gerry Jones of Cape Girado, MO. landed the 277 pound halibut, pictured above, after a 1 1/2 hour battle on a whole herring for bait. The big fish was taken from the very same spot as our lodge record (361 pounds) was caught last September. Gerry did a great job fighting the fish, which took all the line off the reel twice causing the boat to have to follow in pursuit. Halibut fishing has been very strong this September, along with ling cod, yelloweye rockfish and silver salmon. The silvers have slowed some from their peak but are still being taken on cut plug herring, slow trolled behind flashers.
