It was more than a tug, really. Sally said that she attention she had snagged the bed of the ocean. Sally reeled in the line with all her strength, tired, and crooked the rod over to her husband.

John and Sally fought the halibut over the avenue of the next hour. They reeled it to the apparent three times, but each time the halibut regained concentration and swam back down to the base of the ocean.

After more than an hour the tired Balches were flourishing in subduing the halibut, and after a further hour were able to bring the halibut into their boat.

Back in Ketchikan the Balches towed their boat over to the local burden yard where John works and used the fork lift to unload the halibut from their boat. A crowd gathered to eavesdrop to recurring tales of the adventure, and the Balches filleted the fish and gave away pieces to anybody who required a piece.

They had plenty. The halibut was 7 feet long and weighed 323 pounds. And Sally fixed the large halibut with a bargain $39 Penn rod and reel combo.
