Fresh Halibut

It's that time of the year again, our local grocer has fresh Halibut on sale for $8.95 a lb for a half, I'll cut them into Filets. I bought 10lb of this two years ago and used the last piece about two months ago. I could not believe the fish lasted that long in the freezer, I blacken it and bake it in a Veracruz sauce, melts in your mouth and is real local and good for you......................PNWC

    The last time I caught a halibut I had to shoot it with a Hi Standard Sentinel MK III .357 Magnum revolver to kill it.

    Nope. It was aboard a charter boat out of Homer, Alaska.

    I know they have overnight charters off the Oregon coast, they limit you to one Halibut. I would make sure that was one hell of a fish

    We had a few over 250 pounds on that trip.
    I've fished for kings and cohos out of Astoria a few times. And out of Westport, Washington, too.

    A friend of mine out of Minneapolis caught a 300lb+ off Homer a few years ago and he was kind enough to send me several fillets frozen in milk jugs.  I fried some, broiled some, and grilled some.  They were all outstanding.

    I wonder what the record is for halibut in that area?  I have heard of some being caught that took hours to bring in because of their dead weight.  It took my friend several hours to reel his huge halibut in.

    Hello, I will be doing some Crappie fishing this year and was wondering what is a good method for bagging and freezing them.

    I got a Fishing ticket in Astoria once, I took my Son, who was 5 yrs old at the time fishing. The GW came over and asked for my Fishing License, I told him I didn't need a license I'm fishing in the ocean. He told me I was fishing in the Columbia river, I told him,I live on the Columbia river and this area is a hell of a lot bigger than the Columbia river near where I live. I told him we hooked into a Dungeness Crab, and I didn't think crabs lived in the Columbia river. Moral of the story, just because you can't see the other side of the river because of the fog, and your catching saltwater fish and crab, it may not be the ocean.....you will still get a ticket

    Hey, lots of states now require licenses to fish in salt water. And as far as I'm concerned that's a good thing. It's about time salt water anglers paid their share for fisheries conservation.

    Years ago I visited my brother who was living in Anchorage, and fell in love with halibut.  We ate most of our meals at home, but had a lot of day trips and I ate halibut mostly as bar food, big chunks of it, beer battered, and served with a cocktail sauce, and I'd squeeze a little lemon on it, ate it every chance we had.  My parents visited, and my mother made a courtboullion from fillets my brother had in his freezer.  I bought it one time at a local grocery about a year ago, and it was great, but haven't seen it since.

    Uncle Groucho,
    We have found, after years of trying every way of preserving fish, that the best way is to wash them in cold water and lay them on a flat tray not touching and put them in the freezer until they are frozen separately. Then you just put them in a freezer bag or vacuum seal them depending on how long it will be before you eat them. This way you can just reach in and get what you want without having to thaw an entire pack of fish. They will keep for well over a year like this.

    I am suffering from sticker shock! I just got back from the supermarket where I saw halibut "On Sale" at $24.95 per pound. And it wasn't good looking halibut, either.

    For that price? Are you suggesting that lobster rolls now cost more than 75-cents each?

    Are you sure it wasn't HalleBerry butt?

    That would be a short beer. A regular glass would be 15 cents. And by the way, a lobster roll still cost 75 cents at Jimmies in the early 1960s. A pint of fried clams cost the same 75 cents then. And a dozen clams on the half shell cost half a buck. Split-grilled hot dogs were still 20 cents, up from 15 cents in the 1950s.

    When you regulars go Rowan & Martin on me, I laugh like crazy.  As a tie-in, I do recall in my just-above youth, getting draft beer at some bar in Garfield, NJ, bar, for what I recall was about 35c for a 9-oz glass.  More important, they had regular cod-trips from Montauk, where they pumped steam thru the boat-railings to warm our hands.  Also recall my son calling for a gaff on a fluke trip decades ago, though the fish was well below Jersey's minimal size.  Told him the mate lost it, for a future death-bed revelation.  As you can deduct by now, am a senior-citizen, but love being web-savvy-enough to enjoy this website: John Fox and Ellen rule!

    We looked at, but didn't buy the 2 lb package of Halibut at Costco last weekend....$29.95. Amazing how the price has climbed over the winter.

    Al, it may be good, but it's not $29.95 good. The more I read this, the more I think I should order another 10 lbs. I could not believe, I ate the last piece of Halibut I bought two years ago, a few weeks ago. The Halibut was just as good as if I bought it a month ago and froze it. I blackened it and served it Veracruz style..................PNWCHEF
