Maybe-
Heck of a way to spend my B-day. Me and Tony caught easy 20-30 fish apiece.

Goldens, Cuttys, and the main target, Macs.

We ended up vertical jigging tubes from the rocks about 10-12 feet above the water. When we hooked one we had to lead them around and down to where you could get close enough to the water to land them. Suffice to say we lost many including the biggest ones but it was still an absolute blast!

Nice looks like great BD trip, white meat is overated, I prefer the other pink meat,lol.
I do have some white meated king Salmon and lots of Halibut in the freezer though.
Fingers in the gills isn't cool for released fish.

Never knew that-

So I guess since I had a finger on it's GILLPLATE I shoulda bashed its head with a rock to ENSURE that it would not survive?

You can do whatever you want, I just gave you a friendly tip on how to properly release fish. I know you normally slay them instead of releasing but if you plan on posting released fish on the internet and want to give them the best chance to survive it would pay to learn some basic fish handling practices, Happy Birthday.

You guys need to come up to Ak and see what its like dealing with a big Halibut going gangbusters on the boat deck while your trying to bonk it!!!
