    Tough to take a selfie of a fish that big, huh? So I've been told!

    That has happened to me before, was hyped up to fish the next day, after not fishing for two weeks, then caught a legal on my second cast. Session over. Could’ve released it and kept fishing, but legal halis don’t come very often for me and I was in the mood ;)

    I saw you were "struggling" with something and headed your way to see if you would need any help but you got that hali in the boat with no problem. That was awesome!

    Not this one, but I have caught halis on Ned rigs, underpins and drops shots while looking for spotties.

    Nice catch. Was just looking at the fish regulations to identify halibuts. That one looks like a Cali (vs. Pacific).
    What was the length? Never mind - I see it in the title. That's awesome!
