Halibut fishing tips?

I surf and pier fish alot and I’ve caught alot and all sorts of fish from the surf and pier. But the only thing I have never caught but really want to us a halibut!!!!!! I never caught one the entire time I’ve been fishing but I really want to. I’ve caught sharks and stuff on sardines but a halibut never bit on my bait. So now that I got a kayak, I think I could catch one know if I go a little up further I think I could get one. Most likely I’ll be fishing in my yak off Santa Barbara pier I guess I’ll get some live sardines and Mack’s while I’m heading out to my spot. Now I need some tips from you guys on where to find them and what to use and the rigs, setup I should use, rod and reel, bait, and anything else would help. I got a fish finder too so I can find em would that he a good idea to use it to locate halibut cause their like buried in the sand but won’t it differ on my grayline? That’s the line that tells you what kind of cover is on the bottom ( if sandy there will be less grey if hard or rocky there will be more gray). So should I drift? Still fish? Anything helps and if you guys give me a spot to try that would e awesome. Thanks

Fishing tips for beginners?

Ok so heres the deal I live in New England and I’m just starting off fishing. I get up wicked early to fish say 6 or 7 and fish hard until around 11. Im throwing all colors of lures in the book at them Im trolling at around 2.0-2.8 and putting the rigger lines where the fish finder is marking the fish(around 14 ft maybe). Throwing DB smelts throwing topguns throwing guide specials, and none are seeming to hit. Can someone possibly more experienced help me?

What are some tips on fishing at Indian Cave State Park in Nebraska?

I have been fishing before but it’s been awhile. I thought as a good family thing to do together I would take my kids fishing at the river for something different. I have fished in a lake before but never a river. I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on how? I not sure that it would be different than lake fishing or could I just basically do it the same.

Any tips for lure fishing for trout in cold water?

I’m trying to pull out some brownies. It’s November so the water’s pretty cold in New York. I’ve been using some curly tails and I’ve gotten some weak strikes, though I haven’t set a hook. Anybody still catching brown trout? What are you using? I’m fishing a pretty small creek with a moderate flow.
