Save for Harvey's halibut
, there was nothing over fifteen pounds on deck.
Rico Simioli gave even more details about halibuts.
This huge catch was a halibut - and you don't see them this size anymore.
Halibuts swim very close to the seabed and that must be why it's never been caught and lived to such a grand old age.
Measuring a gigantic 70 inches in length, the 100lb halibut is almost 10 times the size of a normal fish.
After bringing up one of those halibuts, it's pretty much the same thing.
On the same trip, Begley hauled in a 146-pound halibut that forced him to consume more energy than a football tackling drill.
He has landed 35-pound halibuts and white seabass - his primary targets, tackled a 60-pound ray, hooked and released barracuda until he was bored, and used squid to lure blue sharks that were feeding frenziedly on a massive school of sardines.
They employ sonar and top-of-the-line rods and reels to capture their targets - everything from white seabass and rockfish to halibut and salmon.
