ANGLER: Jared Funk
SPECIES: Halibut
HOOKS: 39950BL 12/0 circle hook
LOCATION: Seward, Alaska

This is a photo of a 175lb halibut that my son Jared (on the left) caught on his first trip to Alaska. We were fishing with Capt. Andy Mezirow out of Seward, AK. We caught the fish on a Gibbs Mudraker Jig that we altered by replacing the treble hook that comes on it with a 39950BL 12/0 circle hook. This fish was the largest of several fish taken on this jig. The hot color was pink but here’s a photo of a white jig that is rigged the same way.

We were using an 80lb Seaguar leader with this set up.
