A very large halibut is caught near north pass. I had to stop and help the gentleman load the fish into his boat. It was too big for him to lift it. I am guessing that it weighed between 250 and 300 pounds.

Description

Welcome to the first installment of "Spotted in the Spotlight." Every week the Juneau Empire will select a Spotted gallery to feature on the home page of juneauempire.com.

This week, Ron Gile, and his gallery "Things I see in Juneau" is in the limelight. Gile's gallery was chosen because it embodies Juneau in all its beauty — whether it's the a unique take on downtown Juneau, a brown bear or a humpback whale breaching, he's captured it wonderfully with his lens.

Thank you, Ron, for sharing!
