Fishing

Recommended Posts

Halibut is only open Thursdays and Saturdays in the month of May.

Brother visiting from Colorado caught a nice 38 lb one.

Also 300 spot prawns on a three hour soak.

Halibut retails at around $30 lb fresh. 

$ 900 fish 😀 and so good to eat.

Nice combination for a fine dinner!  Do they put up much of a fight once hooked?

Why the odd open times for fishing, spring spawn?

They come up from the bottom like you hooked your anchor but once they see the boat they trash violently, especially one their in the boat.

If they get any bigger than this one we tail trail them to bleed out.

Abbreviated season is for conservation of that fishery. We get 4 days in June.

Our summer 4 month salmon season has been reduced to 1 month, July.

Do halibut taste like flounder since they look the same?  I can imagine that size fish could spank your butt once in the boat...I have watched my boys get tail thrashed when they were smaller and had to get up next to large fish that had just been boated.  

Don't think it is just you, our spring striper season never opened this year (should have been closed years ago to protect the spawn migration).  They increased the minimum length on cobia, but still left the season open so we can continue to chase them.

Firm sweet flesh.

Cooking it properly is key.

It doesn't do well on the bbq.

We bake at high heat for 12-15 minutes in pyrex with butter and garlic. 

Salt and pepper to taste.
