How to Catch Big Halibut - Seven Simple Secrets to Big Halibut Fishing 1. Find Good Structure and Find Halibut When in Alaska Fishing for Halibut, especially big halibut, no decision will have more impact than where you fish. It may seem simple, but if you are fishing for Halibut, in a place where there are lots of Halibut, you will certainly catch more fish. So where do Halibut live? Halibut prefer bottom structure that has rapidly changing depth nearby. 2. Halibut have an excellent sense of smell and use it to find food. A simple, and deadly effective, technique is to attach a bag of chum to the anchor line right before setting anchor. 3. Alaskan's know that "Bigger Bait = Bigger Halibut." Small "chicken" halibut will often not hit a big Salmon head, so when you do use big baits you will often get less bites. 4. This is another one of those things that you think would be common sense, but is often forgotten. 5. This is a secret that I almost wish I was not sharing because it is soooo effective at catching more and bigger halibut. 6. 7.

Carpet Shark Eats Bamboo Shark Photograph courtesy Tom Mannering A shark has been caught on camera making a meal of another shark along Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Released earlier this month, the pictures show a tasseled wobbegong halfway through swallowing a brownbanded bamboo shark. Daniela Ceccarelli and David Williamson, from Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, chanced on the spectacle while conducting a fish census on the fringing reef off Great Keppel Island. "The first thing that caught my eye was the almost translucent white of the bamboo shark," Ceccarelli said in an email. "It became clear that the head of the bamboo shark was hidden in its mouth," she said. Previous analyses of the shark species' stomach contents had shown that wobbegongs do eat other sharks. "I doubt that this is the first time such a thing has been seen," said Ceccarelli, who added that she does think this is the first published photograph of a wobbegong swallowing another shark. —Helen Scales
