I keep hearing these rumors and reading comments about halibut moving in close to shore in shallow water this time of year because of various reasons such as feeding on salmon carcasses to chasing bait fish. Wondering about the halibut in Cook Inlet. Why are they so shallow in spring, anyone know? Do herring spawn on the beaches there like elsewhere on the peninsula? Never seen signs of herring eggs on the beach while clam digging. Do they follow the hooligan maybe?
