Several scientific reports show that halibut spend a considerate part of their lifespan in very deep water. Down here red fish (Sebastes marinus) and rockfish (Sebastes alutus) are the main food source. Not a lot of anglers fish in a depth of 100-300 meters when they go for halibut, but you can be sure that when the big ones move into shallow water they will remember their favorite snack. Red Ed comes in realistic or psyched up colors that will turn on any big halibut cod etc. All are made with premium quality, chemically sharpened sea fishing hooks, durable painting and active eyes.
