Description:
We had a great day of halibut fishing. We have a set rule that any fish over 75 pounds is released -- these are the females and we want them producing eggs. We snapped this photo after a 1.5 hour battle to bring her to the surface. Right after we took a couple of pics and took a quick length measurement in the water to estimate her size, we cut the line near the hook and watched her dive back into the darkness below.
