So a few weeks ago I posted a thread about what I thought was a shark that hit my halibut skate. Well, went out this past weekend, same spot. All of my 15 hooks on this skate have halibut skin on them, as always plus some herring, squid and few chunks of octopus. Go to pull and picked up a couple 20-30 pound halibut and a bunch of Cod. Just like last time, each of the fish have very fresh wounds on them, but unlike before they are not bite marks, looks more like road rash. The strange thing though is that each of the hooks that have no fish on them are missing the halibut skin. Now I've been using skin for a dozen years and have rarely seen it come off the hook. I can use the same piece of skin on multiple soaks. But on this soak I had at least 7 empty hooks, compleatly bare. Its like something was eating right around the hook? Very odd.
