Other news this week… the halibut are here!!! The halibut are here!! And in full force.

Many guests limited out over the last two days with some tasty “chicken” halibut. On May 29th, the 'buts started their annual show of power with a scores of flat ones arriving at the dock. On May 30th it got even better. And today, the last day of May, brought us our best halibut fishing this season. Oh ya! Not to mention an awesome haul of Lingcod.

Remember fisherpeople: June 1st means that marked (hatchery) Cohos are allowed to be kept!!

Fish on!
