674-First Fish – Homer, AK

This is my first fish. It’s a 27 pound halibut caught with my friend Steve Haber of Habervision Sunglasses. Steve took me out of Homer, AK to guide me on my first halibut hit. We went to some of his favorite fishing holes out in the bay and fished at 200 feet. Here’s a map of where we fished. Just the two of us and I didn’t get sick.

I really caught this thing – and it’s a small one.
