About a year ago I looked like a spaz until I got an OTW lesson from Buttchaser . It is amazing how easy it is to land Halibut when you are not doing everything wrong (who knew?) . Now I try to only do about half the wrong stuff (like having the gaff and game clip ready when the fish hits the surface).

Nice Video Greg
Where was all the thrashing and heavy breathing and wild gaff swings?!?
Yeah, you look a little too calm out there, but I havent caught a legal halibut in well over a year, so what do I know
New(ish) boat looks sexy!

Sweet! Liked the vid and nice butt!

Hey how did you attach your gopro? I like the setup... I might have to get mine back into commission and try something similar.

I used a piece of 1 1/4" PVC pipe that I belt sanded down to fit in one of my flushmounts just behind my seat. Then I heated the PVC and bent it so that I could get the camera just where I wanted it. I used a 1 1/4" Sleeve at the top with a reducer 1 1/4" - 1" and then an end cap that has a flat end to stick my camera mount to.


Then I used 2 pivots, from the camera hardware, between the camera and the mount to allow me to tilt it two ways.


I have not bothered to glue any of it cause it friction fits so well.

I am expecting to see him put up a 30# YT this month unless somebody hides his supply of dead Squid.

My first setup for the GoPro had my fat head filling half the screen lol.

That reminds me, I did not mention that mine was on dead Squid (not really, live Lizzard fish).

Pond Butts

Greg, Are all of your submittals bottom feeders? You need to change your screen name to HaliKing. That was the smoothest gaffing and landing I have ever seen. You did not even get slimmed. I am not sure your calm holding over the side technique would work for Yellowtail or WSB that seem to protest a bit more to being stuck with a gaff.

I don't seem to have the patience for Hali fishing. No Hali slim on my ride. I am not too big on eating bottom dwellers from our polluted local bays. Give me the open water and Pelagics. The anticipation of the surf launch and landing also adds to the attraction for me. If I want to complete for a top spot next year I guess I might need to learn some patience and maybe a catch a release over the side technique. I am not sure if I could get a measurement without getting slimmed. Maybe, a wooden yardstick would work? Getting a weight without ruining the slim and putting a hole in the mouth might be tough. Net landing and weighing the netted fish could work. The yak cam is a great tool that could make release submittals viable. Thanks for the Hali landing lesson.
