We had to shoot this HUGE fish for our safety (100 Pounder!)

  • Published on Aug 30, 2018
  • Last day in Alaska. Got the chance of a lifetime to target some of the most massive fish on the West Coast. Had a 40 Caliber Glock on board in case we came across a "barndoor" Halibut. If these massive fish flop around on deck they can easily break a leg or cause a serious injury. The goal was to incapacitate the fish so it would flop around with 5 people on board. Their slime makes everything slippery and very dangerous if flopping around on board especially out at sea. What an amazing trip. Will try to visit again next season!

    u know why fish in the northern west coast are bigger? most animals in the northern climates are bigger than their southern and warmer equivalents. Its a survival evolutionary thing for storing heat.

    Nice fish!! The best way to bleed a halibut is to immediately use a saw and cut through the spine near the tail. Then use the washdown hose to supply the gills with fresh sea water that will keep the heart pumping. It may sound strange but it is something I have done many times and the results are clear. If you bleed a halibut this way there will be no blood in the fillets.

      If you pull a fish that size onto your boat it can easily damage the boat or seriously injure someone with how heavy/strong they are. Do some research or experience something in real life before you throw in your unwarranted 2 cents.........

    My grandpa caught a 40 lb lingcod off the BC coast near Hakai. Up in Homer, AK, he's caught even bigger (some HUGE barn-door halibut). We have a few big halibut stories. lol
    We caught our first big halibut and it was about 99 lbs. But outside of Sullivan Bay in BC, we were rock fishing in maybe 60 ft of water and I thought I snagged the bottom. I was on a 40 lb test salmon spinning rod with a little squiggly lure, no bait! I gave the rod to my grandpa and boy was that damn fish huge! I can't remember if it was 125 or 225, but in any case, it was over 5' long. He'd get it up to the surface and the damn thing would shoot straight down to the bottom and we'd have to start all over again. I had to hold the pole while my grandpa got the gaff to bring it into the boat. Then he had to beat the shit out of it with his mallet because we had no gun. My grandpa didn't think we'd need it for just some rock fishing. They fight something fierce. We weren't expecting any halibut. lol Two days later, we went back out. I told my grandpa to bring the gun, just in case, and he was like, there's no way we're going to need it. We went to a different spot and lost a ton of line due to a snag (we were fishing over a deep hole and it snagged on the side). We went back to where we caught the halibut, not expecting much, and half of Sullivan Bay was out there and all they were catching was dogfish. We dropped our lines, this time at least on a halibut pole, and within 20 minutes, we had another one. Now, this damn thing did some of the strangest things I've ever seen a halibut do. That thing breached out of the water like a frickin salmon or dolphin! Remember how I said we lost a lot of fishing line? Well, this thing nearly took the entire spool. I had to follow the fish backward in the boat so it didn't empty the reel. It took forever to get it in. As soon as the head would break the surface, it would dive, just like the other one. We had to bleed the gills and tow it back to the bay bc it was too big to bring into the 14' boat. Took over an hour for a 10-minute drive. We opened the stomach back at the cleaning station and they were full of small red rock crabs. Usually, they say halibut live over pebbly or sandy bottoms, but the 2 we caught during that trip were over a rocky bottom on the edge of a kelp bed. They were VERY dark brown. The second one almost looked smaller, in surface area, but it was WAY thicker from top to bottom. It was 25 lbs more than the first one! We found out why everyone else was catching dogfish. Remember how I said we were fishing with lures and no bait? Everyone else was using bait, so they were bringing in dogfish instead of rockfish or halibut!
