Your second rod should be either a light bait casting or spinning outfit to use when the conditions allow you to use a light 1 or 2 ounce sinker. It is quite a thrill to land a good sized halibut on a steelhead or black bass rod. The standard end tackle for live bait fishing is a three way rig. To construct a three way rig attach a 36 inch 25 pound fluorocarbon leader tipped with a 1, 1/0 or 2/0 live bait hook tied on a perfection loop to one eye of a three way swivel. Next connect a short light monofilament dropper to the second eye of the swivel. Your sinker will be attached to this dropper. Since the dropper is made of line that is lighter than that used in the rest of the rig the sinker will pop off if you get snagged and you’ll only have to put on a new weight rather than a whole new rig. Your main line attaches to the third eye of the swivel. When you’re ready to fish, pin a live bait on your hook through the tip of its nose. Put the rig in the water, lower it to the bottom, let out a few more feet of line and then engage the reel. As the boat drifts you want to feel the rig dragging across the bottom. Halibut lay on the bottom By Cal Kellogg and ambush baitfish as they come by, so it is important to keep contact with the bottom. The rod slowly bending into a deep arch signals a bite. This indicates that a halibut has inhaled the bait and has gotten hooked. When that happens take the rod out of the holder and start working the reel. Commercial anglers have been troll- ing for halibut for decades, but recently private boaters and a selected few charter operators have discovered the effective- ness of trolling. In my opinion trolling is not as fun as drifting, but you can often catch more fish trolling because more ground can be covered. For trolling you’ll need a beefy rod capable handling up to a 16 ounce sinker matched with a reel loaded with 65 pound braid. To rig up, tie a three way swivel to the end of the main line. To one eye attach a short medium weight monofilament dropper. To the third eye tie in a 48 inch section of 30 pound leader material and then attach an 8 inch dodger. To the rear of the dodger attach another 36 inches of leader at the end of which you’ll attach your bait. The most common trolling bait is a frozen anchovy known locally as a “popsi- cle” rigged vF"b2"6V@RbFR7F0&B&FF'2&P6ǒVЧVBvRG&Ɩpf"6fWvW"vW'2W6P'Ff6W&W2'W@vR6''VBg&VR7Ff FW6&R7WW FRVFW"vvG2F6''0VffV7FfRFR&W7@'Ff62vFR@FwVVBg&VRVFrW2খ67vFw'V f&Rf&WGb6Ɩ&W'2vF&VR6PfW"FRFbB4d"DUD2DR$tU5B4TT5Db"uTTUE2FW"ffW&w2F@v&6VFR26DRtU5B45B( 2uT$DTTBv&&Ɩr70P"B66pdb'Vr֖p( 'W'7Bf&^( #w&&V֗Vvw&FR'6gB&.( 2S6VBrǒC"㓒VrGFW"v@$uT&vW7B6VV7F`ffW&pRW6P$U VƗGVWG26Ɩf&FPFV6VP2FPvR&RsrFCR67&6WF&V@6RFFRG&W 4"d5$4$TT&W"b6W'f6R6VFW GF6bFb6P6f"FWF2tD5$TDD vVvBFWVFp4rUT䤔TD4DpFR7W'&VB@DT4d$4RDu2$r$$P3c$tPFWFbvFW"@`$uT0FVg&VR7FP%4eB5UU"5D$P&rWB&VBFPbScBS##R&BbW"&r0TBe$TP5DTUE2B5UĔU0S#rF6fR7FR67&VF4S3&Vv^( 0&GFW6RfW'6G&pVǒr#&GFW6RfW'6G&r6VFW3( FpG&pFW06PGW&6G&VBVf&V@( &GFW6P66VB6V@`6v@v&VW72G&p( 6PfW'6G&prƗfPWV@`FRfvV@6W0( 6PfW'6670&fFV@'GW&6WF0CU Dp$T$Œ4524U2$RĔԕDTBFvF&RƖ6F2f&PCuurĔ5$TtU24Ю( "r7FF7'Fr66W'6RvRffW"VƗGF&vWG2@ff&F&R&6W2V6B6V6V26WFV&W"vWBF&vWB'6ƖrVƖr"f6FrW2FF6FVBCR֖W0'Fb67&VFS3s#BSS G&VvT6У3s06FVVBg&vRPBG&vvr7&72FR&GFRVV@V&ǒfF2&RvVvBFRFV7VVBf"Ɩ'W@vVWfW"f6r6GvFW"FFW0G&Ɩr2&WGvVVB2֖W2W"W"&Rf6r7G&FVwBF6P66RƖ'WBf6RFFR7W'&V@WFVBF7FFRrvB"&BFRf6p^( vBFWWfW"FR&BV"Чv&RƖ'WBf6r6W'Fǒ6( BFW&r7&72B6ƖvFǒFv7W'&VBW6WFFF2'VRƖ'WB&R6v@F2vVRFr7VV@fVVFW'2VrFWWFƗRFV"f6vR&W6VFrFR&Bg&BbFPFW&FV"&Wf"F2&V6FPf6FR7G&W2RvWBvVG&Ɩr&P6V&W"FRvFW"FR&WGFW"FRf6rBfVBFR&Bv6ǒ&VBfW vFFR&FR6V&W7BvFW"0ƖRN( 26vvVBFN( 2W"7VRFVBfVBvVFFW2&RƖvBG6ǒƒЦWBbFRFW"B&Vv&GFƖrW 'WBf6r2&W7BGW&rFFW2FBfVGW&P&RW72FF&VRfVWBbfVVBWBbFP6g&666&6fW'2VvR&VFRfRFRFf6fVGW&W27G&vW BFW&R&RVW&W26F2FBbЧFFW2'V2vf6r( fR6Vv@fW"&FG&gFW'2BG&W'2vB"ג6&RbƖ'WBvVFRFFRv0GVGf"7V66W726VG&&6F0'6WFVǒ&r7V62vV6B&F6R6&77fVBBFR&W&RЦWfG2&fFPFR7B667FV@f6rF&VvW@FR6V6( "&fW76ǐBFW2FP7FV@6WF&07BFBƖ'W@( "7W7Ff@7FF6WF( "6RF&7G26VFPFRVF&66W'f6PvFR@''B6FW7F6BBFR&Vfg6&RbFR2ЧFW"BW"FFR'FFRvW 'Fb6&&G6ǒVG0vBf6rGW&pCBGvB&B( "V'W&cCSR6f27B( "&6ƖFRFR7VW"@S3Ӄs#Pbss2s330E$U"D4U03c#@DRd44ddU 323CrCccf66ffW"6Фd44ddU"DtDFvF7V'67&Frf&RFFRf66ffW"FvBFRg&GVW2"vvR6V6W2WBvRf66ffW"6Ц"VFvF7V'67&F4f66ffW"6
