Recipe - Bacon Wrapped Halibut


  1. 18 slices bacon, cut in half
  2. 1 1/2 pounds’ halibut steaks, cubed
  3. Ground black pepper to taste


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until just beginning to brown, but still soft. Set aside until cooled enough to handle.
  2. Preheat your oven's broiler. Season the halibut with pepper. Wrap one piece of bacon around each cube of fish, and secure with a toothpick. Place on a baking sheet.
  3. Broil for about 5 minutes, turning once, until fish is cooked through and bacon is crisp. Transfer to a platter, and serve warm.

LEH Results

We are all anxiously waiting for our LEH results!  Although we do not have a set date, the results are expected at the end of June!


Set Up of the Month

Get set up for your summer full of fishing with an Islander Mooching rod and MR2 Large Arbour reel.  This set up could make an awesome Fathers Day gift!

The Islander Mooching Rod is built for the rugged Pacific North West.  Durability and functionality are prominent, coupled with sleek lines and clean looks. This rod lives up to Islander standards in every way.

The MR2LA brings together all the loved features of the MR2 and MR3. It relies upon the framework of the MR2 and its free-spool capabilities but it also incorporates a large arbor like the MR3. With this large arbor, comes the space for a larger sculpted drag knob allowing for easier drag adjustment.

Like all of Islander's mooching reels, the MR2LA is built for harsh saltwater conditions. From its fully anodized frame, spool and smaller components to the hefty brass clutch, all of the components are machined from materials that will last in a saltwater environment. We're not kidding when we say this reel is built to endure the elements
