Getting to be that time of year…. upgrades

Getting started on upgrades on the grade for this upcoming season. Got the floor ripped up now so we can install and swap engines around.Will be nice to have it done early so I can get out in the Sprout Lake Loggers Derby on the first weekend in march….. a good time to put break in hours on new engine and to get out and get some fresh winter springs…. the tastiest fish of the year….

Halibut have been getting caught in close by areas. I picked up one on the troll… it was 108 cm and weighted in at 35lbs, another guide was on the hook and picked up a 133cm and an 89 cm, others have also been catching either by troll or on the hook. Loaded on my anchoring system today, so I am ready for some hali action ….. Lets go hali fishing!!!

Picked up a Boston Whaler 16SL …. be a great for for running around lakes and possibly for doing some prawn fishing but I don’t think it will be going out to big bank….. I think the Grady White would be a better option
