    Halibut can grow up to 15 feet in length? That's 180 inches. Have any that long been found?

    Keep in mind this was an Atlantic Halibut. They are the largest of the flatfish. Still a big fish, regardless.
    Spending my kids' inheritance with them, one adventure at a time.

    Remember seeing halibut in the fish markets over in Norway that would certainly have weighed around 400-500 pounds. I do believe the largest commercially caught Atlantic halibut hit the scale at right around 700 pounds.

    That thing is absolutly awesome!! But I would have taken a picture and released the fish. I cant imagine something like that tasting very good. When I'm fishing, I'm targeting tablefare not records...

    Ummmm, I would have hauled it in and sold it for almost $4000 just like the guy in the story did!
