BY SPECIES
Halibut range in size from the manageable California species to giant Alaskan halibut of a few hundred pounds. Water depth, reaching 500- to 600-feet and the weight necessary to reach these depths often determine reel size, while size of the fish determine rod power. For large halibut, very short, powerful rods are the norm for their easy handling and ample leverage they offer.
