Alaska Bob/Vegas Bob had a very successful day fishing Halibut in Homer Alaska July 12th 2015. 

Vegas Bob entered a contest trying to win a $25,000 dollar prize by catching the largest halibut in the year 2015.

Robert Swetz aka Vegas Bob aka Alaska Bob did catch a 140 pound halibut, but did not beat the recent holding record so far of 247 pounds caught by a lady 2 weeks ago in Homer.

One of Robert Swetz's relatives Donny Demaster caught a small octopus that we ended up taking home, along with over 250 lbs of halibut meat and 97 lbs of fish-heads & tails.

Vegas Bob's wife makes a great soup from the fish-heads and tails ;o)

Hello David ... thanks for the stop!

I think halibut are born with eyes on each side of their head and slowly swing to one side because the are bottom feeders lay on the bottom of the ocean floor

Can I get some of that fresh Halibut here in Vegas? I bet it even beats what they sell at Whole Foods, fresh from the Alaskan water. Have a great week!
