Just for the Halibut
Paul is back in Alaska, in a town called Seward in the south of the Kenai Peninsula and this time he's heading out to sea in search of Halibut which can grow to huge sizes here. Skipper, Gabe Mercer takes the boat out to the South West entrance of Prince William Sound and talks Paul through the methods he'll be trying. One rod is set up with a large jig, whilst the other is set up to fish with a bait of Salmon bellies. Paul drops his jig down to the bottom and starts moving the rod up and down and it's not long before he gets a hit and sets the hook. Its not a huge one, in fact the skipper calls it a 'chicken halibut' but certainly gives Paul a brisk workout. Not long after, Paul gets another hit and this time its a beautiful Ling Cod that comes to the boat after a strong fight. Switching to bait, and moving to Montague Strait Paul gets what he came for, hooking into one of the big Halibut the area is famed for but can Paul land one of these monsters?
