Fantastic and memorable Halibut fishing with "Captain Jack"
Hunting for Halibut
My husband and I booked our halibut fishing excursion through our Holland America cruise. I am an avid fisherwoman but this was my husbands first experience fishing let alone fishing for halibut. Captain Jack met us at the end of the pier (along with another couple ), and we quickly dressed in our boots, rubber gear and set out on the boat.
Being September and toward the end of the halibut season my expectations were hopeful but this day was beyond my expectations. The captain and boat were excellent and the weather was beautiful warm and calm...we quickly got into some halibut and spiny rockfish. We even caught a large 43 inch halibut which we released.
We saw a convocation of bald eagles, the most I have ever seen and porpoise. We opted to have our fish cleaned and sent home, they were delicious! This was the most fun and wonderful fishing experience I have ever had and my husband has stated he wants to go back on our own and do an extended fishing trip with Baranof and Captain Jack in the near future.
