Drifting puts the bait in front of more halibut. At the height of the season, about half of the fish are caught while drift-fishing, says Thompson. While Cavanaugh often drifts in shallower water around 24 feet deep close to the islands, drifting the squid grounds in deeper water usually produces bigger fish. It smashed the previous all-tackle record by nearly 9 pounds. Yet that fish was just one among hundreds of halibut over 30 pounds caught off the Channel Islands from May through August last year, says Joe Villareal, captain of the Mirage, based in Channel Islands Harbor, in Oxnard. These egg beds tend to show up as light-blue fuzz on the screen. Schools of squid will also show up on fish-finder displays, often in light blue. Once a skipper is over a productive squid nest, hell drop anchor. Turning on bright lights at night will often bring the squid to surface, where the crew can capture them with brail nets and crowder nets. While fishing often starts before daylight, halibut dont bite often in the dark.
Fish with a 2-ounce lead-head, and pin on two live squid, he advises. Drift-Fishing When the focus switches to halibut, some skippers like to drift-fish to cover more ground. While halibut will aggressively chase prey at times, they more often lie in ambush on the bottom, moving no more than a body.
Dont pump. It will make the fish want to shake its head, and with so many sharp teeth, it can saw through the line. If you do it right, the fish wont even realize it is near the surface and may even come up vertically and virtually motionless. Fish with a 2-ounce lead-head, and pin on two live squid, he advises. Drift-Fishing When the focus switches to halibut, some skippers like to drift-fish to cover more ground. While halibut will aggressively chase prey at times, they more often lie in ambush on the bottom, moving no more than a body. When the boat is anchored, you cant cover much ground fishing vertically with a dropper, he explains. So I like a white 1- to 2-ounce Spro or High Tide B-52 bucktail or banana-jig head with a live squid. Focus on the squid grounds, and you might be successful on even bigger buts this year. TRIP PLANNER What: Big California halibut. When: May through July. Where: Squid spawning grounds off Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and San Miguel islands (outside the marine protected areas). Once its aboard, laying it white side up will help keep it from getting too wild. Southern California anglers have their fingers crossed for another record-setting season on halibut in the waters off the Channel Islands. There have been so many spawning squid the past few springs, says Cavanaugh. The halibut have been showing up at the islands about the same time to spawn, and with so much easy food around, they also take the opportunity to bulk up. However, as gray light begins to illuminate the surface of the ocean and the landscape of the islands, some of the best halibut fishing can occur, though moving water also plays into the equation. Terminal Rigs: Lead-heads, 112 to 212 ounces, and dropper loops with 6/0 to 8/0 Owner Aki Twist hooks and 5- to 10-ounce torpedo sinkers. Most of the early-season halibut we catch are incidental to white seabass fishing, says Cava-naugh. However, once the halibut fishing becomes consistent, both passenger and private boats begin focusing on them. Dont lift the fish above the surface, or it may panic and start to thrash about. This is why a loose drag is critical. As the fish nears the surface, have crew standing by with a gaff to take the fish.

I dont have any personal grudge against Vince Russo, but I just know watching the shows that all his shows look the same. TNA has turned into sort of another version of WCW when I was with Russo there. In few seconds the sun was already all red and its red color spread all over the sky. The reddish clouds looked like cotton candy in the sky. Even the sea was changing too. During the course of World War II, Arthur Clarke served as a radar instructor. He was the first person to come up with the idea of satellite communication and he presented the idea long before it actually became a reality. Bret signed with WCW. Bret had a clause in his WWF contract that gave him reasonable creative control for the last 60 days of his WWF tenure. Bret hated Shawn Michaels in real life and refused to lose to him in Canada. The machine could be programmed to some extent with a program card, an ordinary punch card wrapped around the program drum housed in the compartment at the top center. Dont lift the fish above the surface, or it may panic and start to thrash about. This is why a loose drag is critical. As the fish nears the surface, have crew standing by with a gaff to take the fish.
Pat Cavanaugh, captain of the Pacific Dawn, says the answer is yes the big-but phenomenon has been building for years, and he expects it to continue. He credits it to a perfect storm of two colliding annual migrations: one of halibut and another of market (opalescent) squid.
And the intent is clear. As the two spokespeople I talked with on the phone today made clear: They both pinpointed the recent economic downturn and the general state of the economy for stoking rightwing extremism. One of the spokespeople said he was told that the report has been in the works.
