Ok I want to go! Anyone else interested?

Can we book seats in advance? I think I'd like to take a run on the opener. Can you PM me with the costs and we'll get something arranged.

I'm interested. How far in advance should one book a May trip? Is the halibut fishing generally productive in May?

What size fish are typical for this fishery? To be real I love halibut so I'm wondering it the fish could pay for the trip.??

limiting out a boat is no big deal.... what was the average size of a fish in your "limit trips" ?

Thats what I was trying to get at Costco has some couple pounders for sale right now, from Mexico didn't hardly look worth while. But if its the the big boys its a while different ball game.
