Halibut is fun fishing

Use a high quality reel as they can be really tough on the drags and gears

I caught a 87 lb halibut on a Penn 330 GTI . . . I would not go any smaller . . . line capacity is not the issue it is the quality of the reel . . . eels were supplied by the outfitter . . . I would bring my own reels next trip
