A friend caught this on cut jacksmelt, at the end of Hueneme Pier. Is it a halibut?
  • The tail and what I can see of the fins look right
  • I think I see an arched lateral line
  • but the mouth looks small, and I don't see prominent teeth

Since you mentioned it, the mouth does look a little smaller than I'm used to seeing. But it's definitely a halibut, everything else matches up.
