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+.
Watched a boat from shore fishing just off the jetty near where the fish effluent and herring are. Hooked into a big halibut, fought it for about 20-25 minutes, got it to the boat, attempted a harpoon and somehow managed to lose the fish. 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.
