Nanaimo Charter operator, Captain Al of Nanaimo fish on charters joined the Nanaimo Halibut Club with a solid halibut that we estimate to be about 60 lbs. The scale at the dock tops out at 50 lbs., so we don’t know the exact weight.
Oddly enough just like Ted the prawn whisperers’ halibut last weekend, this one was also caught at an undisclosed location within sight of Nanaimo. (Maybe he followed Ted out?)
Captain Al also had a giant ling cod that was also over 50 lbs….some guys get all the luck.
Clearly we need to get a bigger scale at the dock here in town.
