Thread: New State Record Halibut From Kodiak?

  1. #1

    Default New State Record Halibut From Kodiak?

    The article says nearly 500 lbs. Is this a new state record? I thought the previous state record was around 450 lbs.

    There's no way of knowing now as they couldn't weight it properly and broke too many rules for records. It's weight was only estimated according to the article...

    Ha! That thing is probably like eating a piece of chalk.... Too bad really that they had to kill her. But I do understand.

    Had some beer batter halibut the other night from a 20#er that was to die for!

    "It was so big, part of the railing on the 40-foot boat had to be removed in order to get the fish into the boat."
