    I picked up my ticket yesterday at Gone Fishing in PA. Father-in-law in my boat and the Step father-in-law and his son in another.

    Tickets bought a month ago, crew is hot to go!
    Last week it was surreal to think that we'd be fishing in 2 more weeks. Be gone, snow!

    Am packing my long Johns in the bag for the weekend. Hopefully a bit of sun will warm my old bones this weekend. Looking forward to a Cariboo Sunday at the Nook.

    Hey guys wondering if you could point me in the right direction, I've never fish halibut this time of year and going to go give it a whirl this weeken. Do I have to go a lot further out this time of year or can I still pick some up in close? Any coordinates would be a great help.
    New halibut fishermen here
    Thanks in advance

    We don’t usually get over to Poett nook till May. But when we go Hali fishing we head off shore , usually 5 mile. I don’t anchor up , we troll for the Hali. Long as the weather and tides behave it’s pretty fishing . we run 20lb downrigger balls to stay close to the bottom keep our speed around 1-1/2 mile hr. I’ve never tried inside ,
    Anyways just give it a whirl. And good luck.

    Halibut should be close following the spawning herring any rock pile near swale might be good look for 300 feet going to 210 should be okay this early John looking at April 1 weather depending

    Nice to see some guys giving positive help. Wasn’t expecting much as most of us tend to be tight lipped.

    Is there any chance of winter springs around Pill Pt. I have some family visiting and wondered if I should bother

    It’s worth a shot. Done well there for winters in the past. Haven’t been there recently though.
