Halibut evade and rockfish pickup

by Kenny Priest

Chris Hegnes of Crescent City’s Englund Marine reports the rockfish season got off to a slow start, but it picked up on Wednesday. He said, “One of the local charter boats went out to Big Reef and did really well on lingcod. They caught a few over 20 lbs, and had three limits of nice fish within an hour. I didn’t hear of any halibut being caught as of yet,” Hegnes added.
