You put lines in the water, with hooks every 15 feet or so. Halibut live deep, so each line is going to be from 30-200 fathoms long (a fathom is six feet). Halibut season is long – from March through November – and it’s not regulated with strict windows of fishing the way the salmon fisheries are, but there’s another catch to it.
