Lol! Those are only for people who expect to catch big fish. Besides, Iíve got King Saba - the crazy fish killer.

Nice fish!

Glad to see guys get excited about catching a nice halibut like that. Everybody should get excited about catching a fish like that! It's a fish of a lifetime to most people. These days watching Greg catch one...you'd think his dog died...

Wow nice catch! I was told there are big butt along the beach but me personally I don't feel comfy eating fish caught in LBC. I caught legal bass all day long a few weeks ago and let them all go. But if you both were cool with it, I'd love to learn from you 2, hell I'll treat to bfast or lunch to show my appreciation!

Thanks. Seriously, I was just very lucky. I actually don’t get to get on the water enough to be much of a mentor. There are however, lots of people on this site with way more expertise than me. I am always up for meeting new people though.

I also thought about the toxin levels in our local fish; especially the older ones like this butt. I figure that it will probably be ok if we don’t eat it more than a couple times a month. I have to recheck the recommendations as to what’s safe. I’m more concerned about how much my kid eats. Thanks for the reminder.

Same for me in MDR. That's why everything I catch (that will survive) goes back into the drink...

Probably the best idea. I most likely going to CR from now on; unless like you said it’s going to die.

Congrats, very nice fish! Especially without a gaff.

Annually, there is a water/fish quality piece put out (can't remember who, but might even be the DFW?) that rates the water at most beaches and harbor areas. They also give recommendations on how frequently you should be able to eat different types of fish based on your age and other factors. Some fish, like Croakers, you should pretty much never eat from harbors. Others, like Halibut, are rarely rated at less than twice a week (even for children, and caught in harbors). The tendency of the fish and its food supply to wander in and out of the harbors will contribute to the variations. Maybe somebody can post up the most current ratings?

Yup so offended by an internet stranger.

Just saying cause the way I read your sentence that I quoted made it seemed like you need to let everyone know that fish is the norm for you.

Here is another of your comments on someone else's report a few weeks back. It's cute how us lowly noobs spend time on the water but all you do is catch fish.

That's a nice one.


It's hard to estimate the weight of the fish without a scale, I've seen 40" halibut that were 20lbs and some that were almost 40lbs. Regardless, that's a nice fish for that area, congrats!!!

Knowing Tony, I read both of the comments listed as he enviously wishes he could capture that enthusiasm and excitement of the days of old.
