Re: Big fish weekend
We picked up 2 nice big halibut on Thursday, 44" and a 46" at the N end of the pile. Not long but they had some weight to them, healthy fish.Took Friday off to rest back and went out Saturday. Picked up a 34" right off at the N end and then a boat came by trolling said the Thumb was hot so we took off after the Golden Goose. Hour later we were floating with a few boats around us not like days of old on the Thumb. We dropped down and started tapping on gravel or that's what we thought. 2 hours later for a bait check and there is the smallest Yellow Eye stuck to my buddy's and my bait,one each. One rod fishing with our other friend for 2 hours. So we were not fishing. Never felt the fish or any idea he was there. As we worked to descend them a big blue shark came along and ate half of one of the little guys the other went descended OK. Big bone head mistake and one to remember so I never do that again. Bait check, bait check.
Friends are God's way of taking care of us.
