Halibut is DELICIOUS. Went halibut fishing when I was in Alaska several years ago, we only caught a few small 15-20lb ones but you get a lot of food from those things and damn is it good. We fished off a small row boat in the Cook Inlet and the drive down the beach to the spot where the guide launched the boat there was easily over 200 eagles on the cliff side.Mmmmm halibut! I hear they taste good, but I haven't been able to try it yet.
they are a really cool fish too. They look like a normal fish when they are really small and actually transform into having both of their eyes on one side and flatten out so they can hide by laying on the bottom and still see everything. Edit...that might be flounder.
