Word is getting around that the Seaweasel has maxed out on Halibut for the past three days. Captain Phil Glen of Shellback plugged Full Throttle Sportfishing to the Sacramento Bee in their May 13 edition of Fishing Line.
EUREKA – The ocean finally calmed down and anglers got out for Pacific halibut with good results that included a big fish of 70 pounds, and several others in the 35- to 45-pound class caught. Most fished around the 300-foot contour straight out. “The action isn’t great, but it’s fair,” said Lonnie Dollarhide, who fished with Captain Phil Glenn on the Shellback. Three anglers on board caught three pacific halibut topped by a 46 pounder. “Captain Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sportfishing has had limits of halibut the past three days!” he added.
It’s no surprise, though; Full Throttle Sportfishing has had the highest pacific halibut count in Eureka for the last 5 years. Be sure to sign up for a halibut charter trip.
