I've had several halibut.net customers tell me they've never seen so many halibut in the strait. One friend of mine, who honestly can't catch fish in a barrel, caught easy limits during the first opening.
Uhmm??? They must have been thick. They caught fish up to 52 pounds.
Fished the derby this weekend outta port angeles.. 1st day big fish was 134lbs, with a 104 right behind it.. several smaller till 36lbs on the bottom.. We boated a 34 and 21 pounder.. Didnt get a decent enough fish to bring in to scale on sunday, don't know what that days results were..
