    Nice video John!
    I’m so thankful that you would share your experience and knowledge to people who like hali fishing.
    I’m from Victoria,BC and I’m a newbie for saltwater fishing(just moved here last Spring). I’ve caught 10 halibuts with a few of my close friends since last October. I’ve learned a lot from your articles about fishing for halibut. I caught 5 halibuts and a giant octopus during the last three trips to the Coyote bank, and just wondering if octopus is good bait for halibut, have you ever used octopus chunk as hali bait? How did it work?
    Thank you so much for the tips and maps!


    • Lewis,
      Yes I have used octopus, but in a side by side comparison vs. herring, mackerel, squid or salmon bellies octopus comes in last place. However, sometimes the halibut prefer octopus, especially if they are feeding on them. But for most of the time I prefer mackerel. There’s been lots of octopus on Coyote Bank this year, so it might work.

      I’m glad I’ve been able to help your fishing efforts. Hope to see you out there.
