Atlantic halibut vs Pacific Halibut
Posted by AKCAPT on Apr 10 2006
Hey there,

I fished in New England for many years before moving to Alaska to fish. To answer your question yes fishing is better at the ends of our set than middle. There is usually a fish that comes with the Anchor. For us, halibut fishing is related to structure, it still is not simple to catch them here until you find them. Once you get on the fish here, you catch them.
As far as bait, what seems to work the best for us is fresh bait, we cut up cod, blackcod head, octopus, flounder, etc. What ever is eating out long line bait that can be cut up and used for bait works best. In your neck of the woods, I would think you could cut up bergalls,Menhaden,herring, mackeral, flounder, hake, whitting, haddock heads with the belly in tack....That would be what I would try.
Hook size does not seem to matter but adding a swivel to the eye of the circle hook reduces the spin ups and subsquent fish loss.

Moon is not as important as current. If you can figure out the current and how it relates to the structure you have it made.

Now for all you private sport fishing boaters who bothered to read all this....You have all you need to know to increase your success too....
