Halibut On Hokeyes

This 48lb Halibut was caught over slack water, by John Wilcox who was crewing for Rich Ward on one of my 2010 sharking trips. He’d tipped the daylights with a slither of fresh mackerel and lowered them to the bottom.

About the Author:

Rupert Drury, species specialist - I’m Yorkshire born and bred and live near Malton, North Yorkshire. Fishing wise, I’m a bit of an all rounder – a fanatical sea angler, as well as a keen coarse and game fisherman. The majority of my sea fishing is done from boats, both private and charter. I particularly enjoy targeting the larger species of sea fish, especially sharks. A few large species PB’s are Porbeagle 248lb (Whitby 2005), Skate 195lb (Firth of Lorne 2008), Conger 66lb (English Channel 2005), Tope 50lb. (Hornsea 2009).
