Last cast of the day produces 53lb halibut

Barry Kemper had to wait until the last cast of the day to land this giant 53lb halibut off the North Yorkshire coast.

Fishing aboard Paul Kilpatrick’s Sea Otter 2 out of Whitby, Barry hooked the huge fish in around 70ft of water after a productive day of catching cod and ling. His setup consisted of a 6" rubarb and custard sidewinder lure on a Shakespeare Ugly Stick 20-30lb rod and a Penn 320GT reel loaded with 50lb Berkley Whiplash braid.
