Got Halibut 2013?

Has anyone seen any halibut yet this year? I've been scouring the bottom in anticipation for them to come back to SoCal this spring... haven't seen any yet tho.

Re: Got Halibut 2013?

Went to two harbors in early january, we shot one halibut and shanked another, but spooked atleast 5 or six. They were like 30" each.

They were in super shallow maybe 1'-2' of water

Re: Got Halibut 2013?

Got one in PV three weeks ago and a guy came out from the same spot with two monsters (the one easily 25lb). During the same dive my buddy lost a monster 30+lb. Last week Ryan got a 10lb during our competition in Malibu. Long story short they are in and they are everywhere.

Re: Got Halibut 2013?

Yes. My son and I saw one in North County SD Secret Spot two weeks ago. In about 15 feet, around tons of bait. Borderline size, so we just watched it swim. Really felt like there were more around, but we got cold...
