Well I had the chance to get out on the ocean last weekend with a great guy "Taylorsviewpoint"It would turn out to be my first time out on the ocean for any kind of fishing So of course why not make my first trip a doozy and go 34 miles out to sea :grin: So I did and I had an absolute awesome time. We were in search of some fresh Halibut. So after our Hour and a Half trip out there :shocked: we are rigged up and ready to fish!! Once we got our gear to the bottom(600ft) it became a waiting game. With in the first couple hours we were able to boat 3 keepers :dance: Only problem was I wasnt one of the lucky ones to get a........ut oh... wait...wait...YEAH I'm getting a bite ....got em....Now the fun really beginsI now get the joy of reeling up 600ft of line with something on it that doesnt want to come up, but I'm a brawler so lets get it on!! After what seemed to be a long time (and it was) I think I am getting it close to the boat, oops not quite yet this fish says!! OK so a little while later we think its ready to come up. Looking,looking, oh there it is I am so excited its my first Halibut.........WHAT!!!!!!! :shocked: Thats not a Halibut. Its a Blue Shark!! Well, the picture doesnt really do it justice I would say it went 6ft. I never did get a Halibut on our trip that day but let me tell ya I had one heck of a good time out there and cant wait to do it again!!!
