    We had it happen to us about 10 years ago out of homer. Only in about 80 feet of water. We were messing around in a chicken hole. They would chase it all the way to the top of the water. 10-12 fish at the surface for about 30 minutes. That was the one time I wish I had my 8 or 10 wt flyrod in the boat. I am dying to catch one of those small flat fishes on my flyrod in that kind of situation

    Default That is awesome

    I had that happen while I was out at port lock banks off kodiak. I caught and released 5 of them on my 8 weight sage (I had onboard for fishing the streams in kodiak). It was just to good of an opportunity to pass up. I was sight casting to the smaller fish because there were some in the 50-80 pound range that I was trying to avoid. I would have caught a lot more but I eventually broke my rod when a smaller fish that I had casted to took the hook and went about 50 feet under the boat and spit the hook, and as I was scrambling to reel it up from the depths something considerably larger grabbed it and snap. All was well though, I sent the rod back to sage with the story attached and they sent me a brand new rod. It really is a special experience to have the halibut on the surface like that. Great videos, they bring back memories.
