How many of you would keep a trophy sized *250lb+* halibut?
How many of you would keep more than one?
I was just reading how a 319lb hog was taken out of Seward near Mont. Island I am sure... and it was taken by a Charter Owner...someone who has taken numerous fish some of which I am sure have been near or above the 250lb mark.
Now... before I go to far I want to clarify that I am not trying to lynch this guy... Just simply bringing up a situation.
I have been lucky enough to catch a large halibut, 238lbs which wasn't enough to be considered a "trophy" by the states standards but definitely in my book it was. I personally won't keep another one of that size.
So I am just curious what you all think about keeping the breeding stock in the water?
