This is 55 inch halibut was caught on a heavy diamond jig tipped with mackerel and was the first one caught by deckhand Chris.
We have noticed a particular trait with halibut and it is not in having some special jig, tube or bait, but in fact getting the jig or teaser in front of a halibut while drifting along. That's it!
Don't fret about needing something special if you want a halibut....get the jig and maybe tip it with a piece of meat if you are trying for a halibut. It is still more luck than anything else, but it is a great sign in seeing these special fish come back again.
