Monster Charlotte Halibut

Just back from my 2 weeks of Salmon fishing in the Queen Charlotte Islands. Check out these halibut taken a few days ago. These halibut were 198 and 175 pounds. There are a lot of these fish up there but we really need to think about conserving them. Killing these big fish is like chopping down big trees. It's a really old way of thinking and we have to be putting these fish back. All of the big halibut are females and have exponentially larger numbers of eggs as they get bigger. It's all about education.
