LARGEST HALIBUT EVER CAUGHT ON SPORT TACKLE IN VALDEZ, ALASKA
This beauty was caught August 25, 2001 by Larry Davis Retired Chief
Master Sergeant US Air Force. Congratulations on this remarkable catch.
Most fish that make it to market are between 10 and 100 pounds. Actually these larger fish aren't really desired as the flesh is more likely to be chalky and mealy.
