    Attachment 59122Attachment 59123I don't know how big these guy's were the Hali on the left was easy to release! and maybe100lbs? and the one on the right had me in a sketchy situation, it's hard enough to let big halibut go with one hook in them! this one had 3 or 4 but I pulled it off!! all these fish left my boat alive and well!!!

    I usually will not use squid when I'm targeting Big Halibut, but these ladies sure didn't mind it!

    LOL! And I NEVER use squid in K-Bay for halibut!! And I have a nice bridge I'd be willing to sell you right in the middle of New York City. And some beautiful land in south Florida that I'd be willing to let go of cheap.

    Squid has been good but comes off with just a few fish, Octo strips work well and are bringing in 6-8 fish most of the time without being replaced. I try to use both well Jigging..

    Couldn't agree more on that one. The only problem that I ever have with octo is that on a muddy bottom it can get dirty really quickly. I don't know if the fish care or not, but if it gets muddy I'll just throw a new piece on. You sure can't beat how many fish you can catch with one piece.
