Thread: Where there are small ones there are big ones

    Default Where there are small ones there are big ones

    I have a good hole to catch small halibut, I was wondering if all the little ones will keep the bigger ones out of the area.

    I don't think that is the case. You just have to remember that there aren't that many big ones out there in comparison to the little ones. Best advice to keep the little ones off your hook, is to run big hooks and bait, and be patient.

    Chicken holes can produce big halibut, but that is far and few.. But I have found good holes that produce big halibut and still there are small halibut

    Put in at Ninilchick. Go south about four miles. Fish about five hundred feet off shore, right in front of Happy Valley Subdivision. It is a good depression there that always holds plenty of halibut. The larger ones migrate directly through there. Two weeks ago it was excellent.

    Where ever you decide to go, keep checking your baits, most people just dump their stuff on the bottom and sit back... JIG,JIG, JIG, move, set out a chum bag, use your down rigger ball, JIG, JIG, JIG, and continuously evaluate the tide and current, where is my sent trail, and yes, catching little fish will bring in big fish! IMHO.
