If you were to charter a halibit trip, who in Washington State would you recommend and what time of year. Thanks for your advice.
For sure SS! I’m not looking for that, I’m just looking for the closet place I can drive to, or the cheapest airfare…. to fish for halibut. There’s no justification to fish for anything, anywhere, if your trying to save money. I’m fully away of that. I just like fresh halibut and want to catch some for the least cost, knowing full well it would save hundreds to just buy it at the super market. However, I want the outting, the fun and the over all experience…… but Alaskan air travel simply leaves that off the table for this trip. Canada, BC is just that much further away from here as well, so…… just not looking there either, at the present.If you’re trying to catch a halibut from every states you’re going to come up 7 states short.
Might want to look at oregon also. They opened the season to 7 days a week instead of 3. This might make it easier to get an open seat. Newport is probably the best port for halibut charters. Depoe bay is good also.If you were to charter a halibit trip, who in Washington State would you recommend and what time of year. Thanks for your advice.
