Halibut fishing is steadily growing in popularity yet, until now, few books have been available on the subject. Expert anglers Robert H. Jones and Larry E. Stefanyk tell readers everything they need to know to land the big one and get the most from fishing the west coast of British Columbia in Island Halibut Fisherman.
The authors are experienced in all facets of halibut fishing and have drawn on the knowledge of professional Vancouver Island guides to provide invaluable "how to" and "where to" tips. Hundreds of photographs, illustrations and maps accompany topics such as halibut biology, tackle, bait, lures, tactics and processing.
Twenty great halibut destinations are covered in detail, including Bamfield, Port Hardy, Clayoquot Sound, Port Refrew, Telegraph Cove and Victoria. Over 660 place names are accompanied by their longitude and latitude for easy reference on a marine chart or for programming a Global Positioning System.
With advice on everything from trolling, bottom bouncing, drift-jigging to fighting, releasing, landing and handling halibut, no tackle box is complete without Island Halibut Fisherman.
