Halibut is great fish! It really is hard to screw up cooking it!
As good as halibut is, the real credit should go to Fuzz.
He knows how to catch it and preserve it by vacuum bagging and freezing. :wink:
I've seen a lot of fish wasted by poor handling...

The topic does state "fishing" not catching... Ran about 4.5 gallons of gas through the outboard, running the southern half of Tampa Bay. No fish caught on any of the hundreds of boats we saw, including ours. However, we did have a blast including this stop to take a dip and cool down. The boat is running great, getting 24 mph with the two of us, a cooler and some gear. Once again got loads of comments at the gas station, ramp, and even out on the water.

You get loads of commits because that is, and always has been, one fine looking boat. I hope you can bring it to this years meet. The boss is looking happy with the boat :D

Has anyone seen these?

I've ordered some from glossieblack's neck of the woods. They are supposedly sheepshead slayers.

I hope to post results in two weeks. :D
