Well the annual run is about to happen down here in WA. I go to the Bonneville dam where the numbers reach the 100,000 mark. I been using shad for Hailbut fishing over the past two years instead of the herring and i must say the Halibut love this stuff, its like candy for the fish. Last year i got a 110 and 80 out of Homer. I dont know why they love it but i wont use anything else.
