Posted by on

Some great news to begin Family Day Long Weekend! DFO has released a notice that fishing for halibut will be opened coast-wide on February 15, 2021. This is news that we are happy to hear! Limits will remain the same as 2020, until DFO releases an updated notice in March. The maximum length for halibut is 126cm (97cm head-off). The daily and possession limit for halibut is either of: one (1) halibut measuring 90 cm to 126 cm in length (69 cm to 97 cm head-off), or, two (2) halibut, each measuring under 90 cm in length (69 cm head-off). The annual limit is six (6) halibut per licence holder per licence year, as set out on the 2020/21 Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence.
