what do you define structure as?
Posted by mainer on Apr 10 2006
thanks for responding with the info.  hope you don't mind if i ask a few more questions.
what do you call structure.  here in maine i usually try to find edges of bottom with gravel and shells.  i avoid soft mud and try to avoid harder bottom.  i do catch fish on the soft mud at times and even the harder bottom but it is a pain when the trawl gets hung down.  

as for the current.  i usually try to haul as the tide is slacking and set back with the tide.  lots of times the halibut come up withing 5 hooks of the anchor presumably because the fish swims into the tide while chasing the scent on my trawl...  

do you get alewifes in alaska?  that is what i try to use for bait the most...

i know most of you guys play your cards pretty close to your chest on here but i am obsessed with catching a big halibut here on the east coast.
