Thanksgiving Turkey
Well, since my dinner plans were not until 7pm on Thanksgiving, I thought I would enjoy a leisurely day on the water at LJ. Leisurely it was too, with next to no surf and light wind. Made a few Spanish and half a dozen small greenies at the cluster of dive rocks off the Cove. Was looking for some bigger baits, and found that they wanted the sabiki cast out, on the pendulum type of fall (same thing worked again on Friday). Fished the larger baits all day, until the last bait down, with very little interest (at least that is what I thought until reviewing the video later). Finally got a nice bite about 11 that did not stick. Brought up the camera to see that it was a nice Halibut. Sent a fresh one down, along with the camera, and back-tracked my trail on the FF. Within a minute she was all over the fresh Greenie. Got her to the kayak and sunk my home-made golf club gaff in her (unfortunately, it was not a great location nor did it go all the way through her). As I was attempting to put the game clip in she freaked out and snapped the gaff in two. On about the 6th or 7th time yakside, I finally got her clipped. 32.5#. Will post some pics when I figure out what I want to use instead of Photobucket, or video if I get a real wild hair?

Nice! I am curious about your camera. I would like too see what I think I am over while scanning my ff.

I, and bunch of others would love to see the video. I know it's a little time consuming but the underwater view is so cool.
Congrats on the butt.

"Cool Hand Luke" no stupid moves, and never panics. Great to see you posting videos again. Thanks

very nice video

Nice catch! Your approach is decidedly much calmer than mine-when I pulled my halibut up, I gaffed the Gill plate and proceeded to stab her between the eyes with my bait knife until I lost count :D

Great video. That was a nice butt. Thanks for sharing.

Nice Hali! Fish Grips work wonders
Nice video that was pretty to watch...I had the same situation not too long ago and invested in a $10 pair of floating fish grips which made it very easy to control big fish without a gaff.

Great video. Never knew they played with their food/bait so much. Maybe thats why I've never caught one, too itchy of a trigger finger. NICE WORK!

BTW Greg - If you ever want to share some of your video/photo/fishing info, I'd love to paddle/fish with you at SanO any time. I'm buttboarding at Dogpatch during the week.
