Finally arrived at Icy Bay Lodge, AK.

They say a lot of nice halibut are showing inshore spots this year.

I am looking forward to catching another 200 plus lb halibut on ijgs.

Stay tuned.

I had great halibut jigging today,
I released 92 small halibut and kept one 100 lb. All were caught using 5 oz Al Gag jigs.
I used light Black Hole Kayaker rods and it was so much fun to use light rod.
We fished in 65' water.

We are going to catch black bass on jigs nearby rockpile and try to catch big ling cod on jigs in the afternoon today.  We used to go offshore spot to catch big ling cod. But big ling cod moved into inshore spot this year for the first time. 

 

Weather pattern changed for the worse today. We will fish inside the bay and do some sightseeing. It is relaxing day. :)  Weather is beautiful for the rest of days.

Very nice,

I absolutely love looking at these pics and vids. 

I used to think this was a bucket list trip. Unfortunately it's out of reach for me but still fun to look and dream

Love those butts!

Keep up the good work Kil!

Looking good Kil.  Wish I was there again.  Next year...

 

I wish you were here this year.

I kept catching and releasing them until I got the right one.

Capt asked me to keep 40 lb and I said No. :)

Rego hooked 140 - 150 lb halibut while I was fighing 100 lb halibut.

I am really happy he had a big halibut as he came here to catch big halibut.
