My question is this. From how far will a good scent trail pull in halibut? The reason i ask is we always try and leave a lot of room between us and any other boat that may be around. Just wondering how far a scent trail will pull in halibut. I know there is no for sure reply but what is your guess? There was a boat that anchored a good half mile down from another boat and the guy got on the radio and started chewing them out. A half mile is a long ways away if you clock it in your car. Could he have messed up the scent trail of the other boat?
