Icicle Seafoods crew on Tuesday unload an 88-inch halibut from the Dangerous Cape, a commercial halibut-fishing boat owned by Eric Velsko, John Velsko and Nick Downs. The boat’s catch also included a 91-inch flatfish. According to a halibut length-weight chart created by the International Pacific Halibut Commission, the weight of an 88-inch halibut is about 376.5 pounds before being cleaned and a 91-inch halibut will be around 419.7 pounds.
