ALASKA: huge 270 pound halibut landed

Guide John Brownlee was fishing out of Sitka, in Alaska and was lucky to boat up not one, but three big halibuts for this month.

He reported "Yesterday, we caught 2 almost identical fish, which weight about 180 lb - 81 kg each. That was great but today, we topped it when we caught this one, which weighted in at 270 lb - 122 kg!

 Halibut fight took about 20 minutes, awesome fight!

All the big halibuts were caught on the Penn Reel spooled with 50-pound Trilene braid, on a  Bluewater Carnage rod.
