Long Beach Barndoor 1/7/18



Orca's got lady luck on his side. We landed this thing with no gaff or net. I came in with the assist and sunk the fish grip in its mouth. Once I got it I dragged it in and went primal on it giving it some good brain trauma. Sucker taped out at 40" with a 29" girth. We're est. near 30lbs. Should've brought a scale.

I caught one that size last year. The steaks on that fish are amazing. Good job and congrats on the prize.

Nice fish and without a gaff? Impressive way to bring in the new year.

Good work!

Thanks! It was a team effort. I think I had more fun than Orca. Yeah no gaff. I've fished these grounds for over a year now and this is only the second halibut I've come across. After today I'll be bringing a gaff with me.

I wouldn’t have landed it without Saba’s Help. The dude is a fishacidal maniac.
I was kind of wanting to see if Saba would have lipped it. I’ll bet he would have tried rather than let it escape.

Yes. It was an amazing and fun fight. Multiple runs where it went from surface to the bottom effortlessly.
