Took my son halibut fishing over Labor Day weekend. Super foggy day. Need back up to my phone GPS. A few tense moments as my GPS went haywire and I couldn't tell up from down!

We limited on halibut at two each and even managed a coho. Saw a massive humpback whale 50 yards away from us...then as the wakes hit our kayaks, another smaller humpback surfaces 25 yards away!!! But the craziest thing about this trip...3 vehicles in a huge parking lot of which two were from our group!

Here's the video


A few photos

It's funny you should ask that. Even though his birthday is months away, he asked for a fillet knife, a fillet glove, and a knife sharpener. I couldn't believe it. LOL. He said he felt bad that he did his part (which he did) all the way from preparing the hooks and leaders through catching the fish until the knives came out. He wanted to learn how! I may have a winner fishing partner here!

The video was too long but I may post the other fish. he even harpooned one of the halibut! So he is getting there.

Awesome. Nothing like sharing those outdoor experiences with children. Great job.
