    Default Record Atlantic Halibut

    Here is a bit of interesting reading while we wait for the ice to melt. The comments on the article by readers are an interesting read as well.

    that is one big fish, seems like they have a few over there since there have been a couple of 400lb plus fish caught in the last 3 to 5 years. wonder how there stock is compared to the pacific and how they manage them differently.

    I guess those people that are making those comments are lucky they haven't incurred the horrible wrath of "The Mutt" and my ever innocuous and often reviled comments.

    All joking aside, the comments are pretty amusing. The gods help us if the commenters (is that a word?) catch wind of the annual slaughter and bloodletting of the helpless denizens of the deep that occurs here in Homer every summer (and for some of us, on a GOOD day during the winter, too). We'd all have to become vegans! Nooooooooooo!!!

    Interesting article. Mixture of metric and English measurements, about how many portions it would serve up at a "good quality fish restaurant" (maybe over there a tough, thick halibut fillet is considered good qualiity . Sure looks light a pretty lightweight rod that guy used.
