    Now comes the hard part..... deciding what way you want your halibut. Fried in Panko, Broiled with lemon garlic, or any other great way to cook it. Nice fish!

    Yup those machines sure have let the cat(halibut)out of the bag for a lot of good spots. We used to have a good laugh about the new guys lobsterin' that couldn't catch anything till they rode around and stole all the numbers from the highliners, next year they thought they owned that hot bottom well they found out different when their gear wasn't on the numbers and was in a big pile somewhere else. Yup those machines sure have made a lot of dummies good fishermen(or so they thought).
    I had a guy do that last year shrimpin' he ran over to every one of my buoys slowed down marked the spot then moved on to the next buoy, glad he didn't set on top of me it would have been fun.

    Ya know Steve, That's the thing with someone running radar now too. Heck you don't even have to get close to a boat and just mark them from miles away. Cheaters....

    Most of those small boats don't show up to well, they seem to come and go on the screen, its always better to run right up to them to get a good mark !!

    Hey using a radar to see where everyone is not cheating, its using a tool you have at your disposal. I did that last month in Homer, I could see like 9 boats lined up about a half mile away... flipped on the radar and figured out they were all lined up over a ridge. Motored out and got on the end of the line and started fishing...

    I couldn't agree more, BUT the only problem with that is just because there are boats in a spot doesn't mean there are fish there. One of the spots that I fish regularly is only effective if you just happen to be "on the fish" and being 50 yards off the mark can mean the difference between catching and not catching. And I have a number of "favorite secret spots" that I fish regularly, but sometimes they're "hot" and sometimes they're "not".

    I also think what I like to call "the herding instinct" occurs fairly often out there. If there are 9 private boats lined up, then maybe they are all just fishing there because everyone else is there.

    Now if all 9 of those boats are charter boats, then maybe.....

    Oh I know Mutt but I figured the scent in the area alone might help me out. I had plans to go out farther and ran out of time with the little boys. You see they decide when its time to go fishing and everything else. When they start running around the boat and I cannot stand it any longer we fish... and the end of 9 other boats was the best spot I could find within the 10 seconds I had to find a fishing spot.

    I did take my GPS out with me on a charter out of Seward to tag some spots by Montague.... but after the weather we had to get thru to get to them, I think they are safe that I will not fish them out.

    Who did you go fishing with Roger?

    My brother is in town and is thinking of taking a charter this saturday if I can't put him on fish (likely I can't).

    We had a heck of a good time on the Crazy Ray out of Whittier at the end of July. It's his first year operating this charter but I think he boasts the biggest halibut ever brought into the Whittier docks. It was a local fish too, not one just driven back from Montague. I think his season is ending soon so book quickly. Again, really enjoyed our time with the boys.
