Ok so the count was 2 halibut one 8lber caught on the live mini chovies and 1 butt at 4lbs caught on dead herring. Rig used for chovie was spreading the hooks apart about 10inches from a regular halibut rig using 1 chovie on the front hook and 1 chovie on the stinger. When I dumped out the chovies I saw what it looked like to be a REGULAR sized anchovie -.-" damn shoulda looked for that one. Pretty tough yesterday. I would say trolling is MUCH more effective than drifting mini chovies that die right when they hit the bottom. ;)
