This monster 325 pound halibut was caught in Sitka
Alaska. All monster halibut over 120 pounds are females and very
valuable to the resource. This fish was killed, but the angler, John
Beath, released eight 50-plus pound halibut that season in an effort to
maintain the resource. This is the only huge trophy John will catch
and keep. The meat from these monster fish is good, but grainy.
Always remember to conserve your catch, but don't be afraid to keep at
least one trophy!
This fish measured 7 feet
1 inches long. The tail was 22 1/2 inches wide and the mid section was
48 inches across.
The bait was the head from
an 18 to 20 pound coho!
We hope you enjoyed
