    Default Fishfinder

    Is there a fishfinder out there that will actually pickup halibut on the bottom ? The one we have now will show fish right near the bottom, but I am not sure they are halibut ( maybe rocks ) Its not like we catch them when they show up on the screen. Does anyone recommend a model that works or are we better off just trying different spots ?

    Default Butts not always on the bottom

    Halibut are not always on the bottom. I had always thought that You have to be right on the bottom to catch halibut, until I watched a video that was taken with an underwater camera. Big Butts crusing at 5 to 10 feet off of the bottom. If you are picking up fish in that range, they could be halibut.
