Welcome to the halibut fishing reports and halibut recipe forum. Feel free to post a halibut fishing report in the area where you caught your fish and please share your favorite recipes.
Fishing was very slow--worked several areas with different baits and depths--normal hot spots were cold--even Freshwater bay, Rock Pile and 31-36 Hole.
Fished 3 long days on the water and only got 2 30lb'rs.
I understand the indians have been long lining the area for over a month and have been pulling 1000lbs of halibut a day out of area 6. Might be were the Halibut are at that are normally there.
Hope some more Halibut move in soon for this area--very slow--Talked to the game checker and he said 1 butt for 40 boats--OUCH
Waiting impaitently for the coast to open.
Paul had no luck Mon. we fished admiralty inlet, lots of boats for a monday, I was thinking about heading west next weekend as the tied looks good hiens or dallas bank, If I get iinto the fish I'll let you know! Jeremy
I hear Davis Bank and Hein are producing pretty good.
May head out there agian for some more.
Gearing up for the Coast opener next month--lots of gear to get ready--lures etc.

Hit Hein for the first time this year on Sunday. Produced one 30#er for two guys. Only saw one other landed but there were not many boats either.
I fished Partrige Bank on the 20th and got 1 small fish about 15-17 lbs. No other bites.The fish hit purple label herring.
fished dung. spit on fri. the 11, all day no bites. fished off ediz hook in about 270 ft. one 40lb. for a long day, way bad for this time of year. saw 3 other fish back at the dock, scattered all over .
Keep up the reports guys.
Thinking of going out saturday for a shot at some more flatties(Not to flat though) despite the tides.
And on earlier post--it was Dallas Bank--not Davis.
