We want to share your big
halibut catch photos with everyone. Simply
them to us and we'll post them here at Halibut Big Catches.
If you don't have a photo,
you can share your catch information without the photo of the monster
halibut. We'd also like to recognize all of the halibut anglers
who practice catch and release on big female halibut. That's
right, halibut over 100 pounds are typically females and very
important to the resource. Here at halibut.net we encourage
conservation of your catch to further promote a strong and healthy
halibut population throughout the west coast. Also, larger halibut
over 70 pounds have higher amounts of mercury in the flesh. If you
do catch and keep a halibut over 100 pounds you should limit the
amount of halibut you eat.
