If not you may want to before dropping your line deep for this infamously large flat bottom fish, the Pacific Halibut. These barn doors range between 10-400+ pounds. Every summer they rise from ocean depths of over 1,000 feet to as little as 50 feet in search of bait fish to feast on in our local waters. Once hooked, these strong swimmers can provide a great challenge as they fight you back to the bottom. Depending on where the halibut are, we typically fish in depths ranging from 100-400 feet. It’s also possible to pick up rockfish, cod, flounder and other fun creatures while fishing at these depths. The regulations for the size and amount of halibut each person is allowed to retain on a charter change each year.
