We were fishing in Homer last week and salmon sharks attacked our halibut. We were about 30 + miles out. They tore up the first one to shreds, took everything but the head off the second one, and took the entire thing on the 3rd one. I didn't have a setup or I could have easily hooked one. I read that a Ninilchik charter had the same thing happen and landed a 500 pounder, picture was in a Homer paper of some sort.
