A fisherman from Sitka who only gave his name as "Halibut Man" draws attention at the corner of Egan Drive and Mendenhall Loop Road Saturday as he advertises halibut for sale in Auke Bay. He also flashed a message about the latest government troubles: "Dead in the water means a fishing vessel is going no where," he said. "It is in peril, and our government is weaker than it has ever been in the face of a lot of serious challenges. I also want to sell some halibut, too. This is the fun part."
