After an hour of catching nothing but cod, Dad was getting frustrated and turned one into bait. Before he was even on the bottom, it was getting gnawed on. Seconds after hitting bottom, there was a HUGE tug. Half an hour’s worth of reeling and pulling and sweating and we had a 7 foot, 160 pound halibut in the boat. The best part, other than the fish of course, was that we only had an 8 minute ride back to unload and filet our prize!
