I could not ask for better weather and the seas were flat. But I have never had to work this hard for halibut in Homer. I have 5 good spots that produce halibut all the time. Well until this weekend. All my holes were infested with then darn spinny dog fish. I think we caught about two dozen of them the whole day. I was getting a little frustrated and sat down and look at my GPS map and decided to take a chance that look good on the map. Well It paid off in a big way. We caught several nice fish and one over 100# on a jig. This thing fought me to the very end.
Once back at the dock other people there cleaning fish were talking about how many dog fish they were catching.
