These are the halibut that I will be seeking on my trip to Alaska this summer, after we catch many thousands of sockeye salmon. It is great to take the Bremerton ferry across Puget Sound and see the pretty waterfront homes on Bainbridge Island as we cruise to Seattle. The price looks good for salmon, but halibut are down do to the slowed economy and restaurant sales. Now that fishing will soon be starting, I have 2 pending home sales and action is picking up in real estate. My partner Beth will take care of the office and transactions in my absence.
