Our Charter Fishing Methods & Rules
We do not typically target the 28″ Halibut. We try to target Halibut that are above average size so everyone on the boat catches something better than the status quo. It is not normal to catch Halibut under 28″ where we target larger Halibut. This requires us to fish differently than other boats you might have been on in the past.
We cannot and will not PARTY fish. Party fishing means that you would be fishing for a boat limit of fish and not an individual limit. It is against the law to do so and we do not allow it on our vessels. If you choose to fish with us, the normal routine is that once you catch a keeper size Halibut, you stop fishing for bottom fish until we move to a different location to target other species.
Typically, when you fish on a spot there is only so many keeper sized Halibut down there and if you have already caught a keeper and continue to fish on bottom, most likely you will catch another Halibut. However, we will have to release it because of the PARTY fishing rule. Then what happens is somebody on the boat stands a greater chance of going home empty handed.
In order to be fair to everyone, we fish like this in ALL of our mixed group trips. If you do not like this idea, then Crazy Rays Adventures, LLC probably isn’t the right charter for you.
Now, if you would like to do something different than our normal routine, we are definitely up for that, it’s more convenient to have all 6 or 12 anglers on the boat of the same party (whole boat reservation), this needs to be discussed at time of booking and in the morning with your Captain so that he can lay out the day accordingly.
For any questions, please feel free to contact our booking office, Brenda at 907-315-5382, or Captain Crazy Ray at 907-355-3182.
