There’s ALWAYS a reason to go fishing!

Whaler’s Cove Lodge: Home of the Original Great Halibut Giveaway!

We believe in conserving our resources, and to prove it, we introduced the Whaler’s Cove Lodge Great Halibut Giveaway in 2011. Twice a week, we give away two trips to anglers that release the largest halibut, on Guided vessels only.

Current federal halibut regulations require that any halibut caught on a guided vessel between 38″ and 80″ in length must be released. This is an effort to leave the active breeding stock and retain only the better eating halibut (up to 35lb average), while still allowing an angler to keep a trophy fish. The choice is yours if you happen to hook up a monster over 80″ (roughly 276 lbs).

Keep it for bragging rights, or release it for a chance at a free return package deal at Whaler’s Cove Lodge!

*Great Halibut Giveaway Rules

1. Halibut Giveaway participants must be on a guided vessel the day of the release with a Whaler’s Cove Lodge captain to verify size of halibut.
