Default What's your favorite Halibut stick.

Just thought I would throw this out there. What do you guys like to use? I am fishing the Shikari 8020Graphite and similar glass model. Also fishing the Calstar 210. What's your pick here?

David.

Sraight from the hip...ANY pole will work for halibut. Not trying to be a smart :+ Here. Any pole will work as long as its stiff enough to stand the force of your troll or drift speed and the weight of line and tackle. Where differnt poles come into play is in the fight after the bite. Dont pump a halibut, just winch it in slowly and 95% of the time they will give a smalll head shake when you pull them off the bottom they they Plane to the boat. Unless you piss them off. Becareful once you get him in the boat. Its at this point the halibut will probably go off.

Loomis HSR 981
HSR 982
HSR 941 all three with calcutta 200's

Calstar GX8 with calcutta 400

Calstar GX7 with newell 220

Calstar 700xl with newell 220

Seeker 804, 853 with daiwa sl20sh

Seeker cjb60xf with newell 220

4 Seeker IGFA 20longs with Daiwa Sealine 400H's

This is what my Halibut arsenal consists of. Six or Seven years ago fish and game limited us to 4 rods for one person or 6 rods with two people for commercial hook and line halibut fishing. I've since given up on the commercial fishing and am currently working on a pot luck boat in the bay area. The worse the weather the heavier the rod I like, the better the weather the lighter rod. The four igfa20longs with the sealines are loaded with 90lb single strand wire for wire line trolling... The two rods I leave on the boat all of the time are my HSR 981 and my 700xl.

Good Luck with whatever you end up using....
