Poor guy stooped over the gunwale looking totally crestfallen and stunned....I felt for him.

    I'm not kidding. It was a nice fish 2 minutes out of the harbor. Might be worth a shot.
    I've caught some nice halibut and kings there in the past.

    Areas around the west side Lone Island are pretty good too. Just check out the NOAA charts and look for some humps surrounded by deeper water.

    Well if ya wanna fish 300-330 I'd say the structure N. of perry island but east of egg rock will produce on an incoming tide. I got lucky there Thursday with 2 over 20 and one over 30. In about 2 hours. Not the greatest but for being close to Whittier I was happy.

    Whittier Halibut

    How has the fishing been our of Whittier lately? I am planning on going in the next day or so. Gonna drop the pots and cruise around for halibut. I can't make the run to Montegue, any other suggestions? I'm planning on still fishing deep, 200+.
