The intention was a salmon, but what was on the end of the hook was a 35 lb Halibut! Our guest from Hollister CA was asked by his wife in the morning…please bring back a Halibut! and he delivered. With great guiding by Scotty Anderson in spite of a slow morning at the “hump” (south end of Quadra Island), telling stories of a past halibut catch, no sooner was the story told when the rod bent down hard and there was no mistaking that there was a “flatty” on the end of the rod. After 15 min of hauling it was brought up to the side of the boat with cheers and high fives!!!!! A 35 pound halibut caught and brought up on salmon gear…that was not Scotty’s first! Two years ago for our long time client Pat D. an 85 lb was hooked in the same manner in the same spot….Way to go Scotty and Stan…..
