PEETZ Outdoors has Special Deals on Gear and Tackle for Fishing Pacific Halibut
PEETZ Outdoors in Victoria has all the tackle and equipment you need to land a big one all on your own this halibut season.
The size and strength of the halibut mean that when it lands in your boat, you had better be ready. This fish is a bottom feeder and it swims at depths. In addition, it has a strong sense of smell and is an opportunistic feeder, so you need technique, timing and the right equipment.

Not only will you enjoy a durable and beautifully crafted PEETZ reel, but also the joy of fishing with a quality, heavy action rod valued at $69.95.
This is a handy package deal that will definitely make a difference when you're battling that big fish on your line.
Good halibut fishing begins in February and reaches prime time in the months of April and May. Now is the time to prepare for the season, and PEETZ Outdoors is offering a number of fine products. To start, you will want to select a fishing reel that has been built to handle the job.
PEETZ 6" Classic Halibut Fishing Reel
The PEETZ 6" Classic offers superb craftsmanship. It's made from top quality mahogany that has been built, sealed, stained and varnished to last for decades to come. Each polished brass part, whether line spool, bearing, gear, fastener or knob, has been handmade to the highest of standards. The drag adjustment and non-slip drag control will allow you to play your catch with greater ease.
PEETZ 6" Evolution Reel Halibut Fishing Reel
The PEETZ 6" Evolution Reel offers the same top-of-the-line craftsmanship with a few enhancements from the classic version. The reel has been crafted to be lighter overall and has an ergonomic handle made of solid cherry wood. The precision roller bearings make operation very smooth. It has non-slip drag control which means any hefty halibut action will avoid knuckle busting for you.
Halibut Fishing Lures
Halibut are bottom feeders; so hooks have to be dropped deep. The PEETZ Hoochie Mama Halibut Jig is thick, durable and triple the size of regular hoochie to let you handle the kind of fight you'll get from a larger fish. The treble hook is at the top so you can avoid snags from seaweed and rocks. In addition, this very special hoochie comes in many colours and different weights for the various currents that you may encounter.
When it comes times to land a hefty fish with lots of fight, most fishermen anticipate a challenge. The design of the PEETZ Halibut Harpoon means you can safely land that fish and remove the dangers to yourself and your boat. The harpoon is 6 feet long but weighs 2.5 pounds. This Canadian made product has a 5'4" heavy hardwood handle and a stainless steel piercing shaft.
When it comes to filleting, not all knives are created equal. Available at PEETZ is the high performance and ultra flexible fillet knife, the Chroma 301 12" Fillet Knife. Designed by Austrian chef Jörg Wörther and F.A. Porsche (the same man who designed the Porsche 911), the Chroma 301 has a triangular handle made of stainless steel that merges with a high-quality Japanese 301 steel blade that is tapered and flexible. The knife has a metal pearl on it that marks off the end of the handle which makes for excellent cutting control. It's an essential piece in any halibut fisherman's gearbox.
It's Halibut Season on the Canadian West Coast! Whether you're puttering around Pedder Bay or motoring around Metchosin, stop in at PEETZ and "reel in" some significant savings on all your halibut gear.
