    Caught this guy today while drifting near the seal pens/bait barge. By the time I got it up in he boat, I was only about 30 yards from the piers, and the navy was rolling up on me. They calmed down a bit when I held it up for them to see. Was close to 26 inches. My best from the bay. Let it go with hopes of good karma in return. It was great weather today, just wish the bite was as good.

    Nice, I caught a personal best around 26 inches didn’t have a tape but I measured on my pole at Ingram street bridge and I let it go thinking it would bring me good karma but I haven’t caught a Halibut in any size since so I’m not sure about that karma thing.

    Good on you for releasing it and keeping the fishery alive! If it were me though that thing would have turned into some nice tacos lol.
