We launched into Prince William Sound from the small port town of Whittier, and drove out about 40 miles, I was jigging off the bottom with the same Shorty 150 that I was using last time out. After catching 8 or 9 rockfish, a couple of gray cod, a black bass, and a couple of sculpin, I hooked a much larger fish. The fish turned out to be a 53 inch long, 72 pound halibut, that we finally were able to land the fifth time I brought it into view from the boat. The fish ran all the way back to the 65 foot bottom and then out away from the boat even further four times! That was quite a workout for me--it certainly warmed up the rainy cool day.
