My 11 year old son and I fished the Anchor Pt king salmon derby. We released a mid sized king and that was it. A kayak angler did place 3rd in this mainly powerboat derby so that was awesome.

72 degrees here in Southcentral Alaska this weekend. INSANE! You couldn't ask for better weather. We caught over 40 halibut on Saturday with at least a dozen following the bait up so we could observe them

Here's a 90 second clip with a halibut that follows my gear up from 60 ft, looks at my bait, goes and checks out my son's gear that already has a halibut on it, comes back and hits my gear finally on top. Pretty cool.


The biggest fish of the day came courtesy of my son. He managed the halibut all the way to harpooning by himself which is actually quite a feat. 2 minue 22 sec video of his catch.


Pics for those that prefer them over video.

Amazing fish! I'd flip if something like that was on my line in Ohio. I bet that was a ton of fun.
