Big Halibut

By August 25, 2010One Comment

Long time AU angler Roy Tuschhoff, fishing with Captain Chuck McNamee, hooked a big one on this Tuesday and after a long battle a 255 pound halibut hit the deck. His party also landed 15 silvers and a nice late season king. Jack Martin, fishing with Captain Ryan Refshaw, added a 32 pound king to their catch of silvers up to 16 pounds. Finally, 10 year old Anna Terrano, fishing with yours truly, Captain Tom Ohaus, landed her third limit of silvers in three days of fishing, plus the second king salmon of her young fishing career, a beautiful 25 pounder. All in all, fishing was excellent on Tuesday for a nice mix of silvers, kings, and halibut. Add to that a spectacular whale show with dozens of humpbacks feeding on a massive krill bloom and a rare sighting of a sperm whale by the Roy Reed group fishing with Captain Phil Carlson, and it was quite a day.
