Average size halibut best for eating was around 25 to 40 lbs. Weird looking fishing with eyes on the top of its head. They sure are tasty.
Here is our catch. We limited on our Halibut in about 45 minutes! After a 2 hour ride out into the gulf of Alaska. Of course me and one other person on the boat limited on Silver Salmon as well.
The uglier the fish the better tasting apparently. This is Ling Cod and a bunch of Silver salmon.
