Fishing for California halibut on the kayak is popular on the west coast. These halibut are not nearly as big as the Pacific halibut that are found in Alaska. The monster halibut in Alaska would be quite a challenge to catch from the kayak. The California halibut, however, are much more suitable for kayak fishing. These fish are found inshore from California up to British Columbia and they often feed on sardines and anchovies.
