    April Meeting -- Everyone Welcome






    'How to Catch more Halibut'




    Ron Garner on Halibut fishing the strait. Ron is going to focus on bait rigging. Is simple as this sounds, there are some rigs that catch better than others. The way they are rigged also helps keep them on the hook . He will also be going over where and how to read the areas to find them. They are transient fish on the move. This is important in fishing them.
    Steve Kaimmer has been a halibut biologist with the International Pacific Halibut Commission since 1985. He has done a number of research projects including using cameras to observe halibut behavior around baited hooks. He has fished halibut in the summers in southeast Alaska for about 8 years before started working with IPHC.

    To enter a fish for the big fish contest you must;


    Provide a picture showing a tape measurement of overall length and girth on Chinook or Coho salmon. Length should me measured from tip of the mouth to the tip of the tail and the numbers on the tape must be readable. Girth should be measured by circling the tape snugly around the salmons mid-section just in front of the dorsal fin with the numbers on the tape readable at the intersect point on the tape. The fish must be laying flat on the deck when measuring! If the fish is hanging it may be disqualified.
    These measurements will be used to verify the fish weight. Please also provide an accurate weight. All Salmon will be calculated at the weight based on the Length/Girth calculator on Piscatorial Pursuits. This calculation is not always accurate but all salmon will be weighed using this method for 2015.  Your actual scale weight may differ from these results!
