    Default Can Halibut sapwn in June

    I was fishing for Halibut in Homer this week end and caught a 25 pound Halibut that looked like it swallowed a 8 inch ball. When I filleted it, it had pure white flesh. The "ball" was a mass of clear, round balls that were sticky. The size was about 1/8th inch each. Was it a female that was ready to lay eggs? I did not see which part of the belly they came from. I have only seen eggs that were in skeins.

    I have been told that halibut spawn in the dead of winter in the very deep water off the Alaskan shore.

    I thought all halibut were cloned in a IPHC laboratory.

    It was not eggs, i cant remember what the bio told me when i asked the same question several years ago.
    it is not all that uncommon to find them like that, we have caught a few every year (like 1-2)
    seems the meat is always chauly white, but not mushy.
