Underwater footage of small halibut
Something a little different. Some underwater footage off my downrigger ball for halibut. All 5 to 10 pounders. It'd be fun to see a big one come in. Still interesting to me and will factor into my technique and presentation. Fish were all in 45 to 60 ft of water.
Fished Fri-Sun in Lower Cook Inlet. 2 kings and 6 chickens. Caught a bunch of halibut but they were all 10 pounders or less. Did manage to keep a few in the 20's.
Over three days trolled a total of an hour for kings. Two chickens, two halibuts, and a couple of missed takedowns in that span of an hour. So king fishing seems hot. Maybe I just got lucky.
So here's the underwater video. Seemed clearer in black and white. Minimally edited.
Another footage of "underwater" fish taken from the topside...small halibut on top...
Fun and interesting footage. I wouldnt have guessed their pursuit would last so long. Thanks for posting.
