Well, look what I found!

Quick trip to La Jolla yesterday am- launched at first light. Bait was tough to get- got one Spanish so I fly-lined it immediately and searched for more. I always use a heavy sibiki with a megabait for a weight...good thing. Saw a mark at the bottom in 60 ft of water-- Surprised by this 19lb halibut just off of the kelp.

To work by 8:30 - great morning! Pictures are dark but the fish was fat

Yes, at the bottom of my sabiki. Got another one a little smaller in 125 ft of water two weeks ago on a hookup bait...

That's awesome and is why I use a metal spoon (crock) style lure for a weight on my sibiki too. One can never know and only hope.

Congrats on a very efficient outing.

The Bubba blade put the size in perspective. Thats a nice fish!

Were the sabiki hooks wrapped around the fish when you got him to the yak?

I hate getting pricked by those little hooks when fish are flopping around.

Nice, I put a jelly squid over my weight and dangle an assist hook from it. Were you using a sabiki rod also, or a traditional rod?

Woot!

Do you use your sibiki on a lightweight bait pole or a full size La Jolla rig?


PS - I like your knife. Next time I have $54 to burn, I want to get one! Alas, too many other bills on my desk need tending to first

Nice fish right there!! I do like the bubba blade but I’m not a fan of using a rigid blade for filleting my halibut.
