National Fisherman

Stew Taylor caught this week’s quota of halibut in no time at all.
 
Longlining about six kilometers off Digby Gut he caught a 252-pound halibut at the end of his first tub and starting on the second tub, he caught a 176-pounder.
 
Add to that one little 70-pounder and he filled his 500-pound weekly quota on three tubs of gear on Tuesday, June 3.
 
“It wasn’t looking good this week,” he said at the wharf in Digby. “The tides were all wrong and I thought I’d just set three tubs and see.”
